Dizzy new saturn owner, a little help?

i just bought an 04 ion coupe that was a salvage vehicle...a friend of mine had one and i loved it...plus my ridiculious interest rate on my scion xb is getting old...so i figured i would rebuild this ion and sell my xb...the ion is in increible shape concidering its a salvage vehicle...little do i know all the problems i would face...it needs a hood a light and a fender...seems like they are hard to find...the saturn dealership wants 600 for a hood 250 for a fender and 190 for a headlight...it seems insane to me...and scrapyards are charging about the same...i was wondering why its all so expensive for the coupe when the sedan parts can be had for about a hundred bucks each...anyways im going with a carbon fiber hood for 500 its cheaper and will look nice when i paint it the way i want, i bought a redline bumper already, and got all the engine parts :radiator,ac condensor,fan for about 350 shipped wich is good...but im still in need of a fender i cant do 300 for one fender when i guess im accustomed to the 300 for a pair of aftermarket ones...so any help? im excited about getting this thing hooked up and on the road i already have nice18s and stereo system for it...so what im saying is this...anyone help me find a fender? some redline fog lights? and help me figure out what trim package i got 1,2,3... internet seems to be hazy at best...thanx allot
justin
sorry this post was so long

fenders for these cars are expensive whether you have a sedan or a coup, they charged me 500 for my sedan fender. they're expensive because they're polymer, the price we pay for tupperware. the CF hood is a good move as long as it's all CF, but my suggestion is to line it with dynamat, it'll stop it from resonating. as far as whether it's a 1,2, or 3, there's an entire thread on that, just look.

yeah, I want to get one some day, then I won't have to worry about corrosion on the hood.

RL foglights won't fit on that bumper unless you change out the front mask altogether for the RL one.

yeah i got a redline bumper...seemed like a better idea than buying a super expensive new oem stock one...or (no offense to anyone who has one) piece of crap fiberglass one....the redline one was sporty looking and with oem fitment and was only 150!...i actually ordered a bilit grill from a 2000 camaro to use as the grill...ill post pix when i get it all together....

You know that Saturn sells a stamped mesh wire grill to fit the RL mouth? Easy to install and made specifically to fit.
