Anybody know how to do the body work?

My 2011 Compass got hitted twice last month. Unfortunately, I didn't have the comprehensive insurance and it will cost me like $2000 to fix the cracks in body shop, so I decided to work it out by myself. I've already ordered a 2007-2011 Jeep Compass Body Repair Manual CD online. I have some picture attached. I think I have to change the fender and both front and back bumper. Anybody have any suggestion about them?
And where should I buy the body part? I found Discount Auto Parts - Car Parts, Truck Accessories and Import Performance Parts at The Parts Bin is good from google.

Doesn't look that bad

Front and rear bumper skin, maybe a brace and styrofoam fillers the mount behind the skin. Although looks very repairable, drivers side fender. All can be mounted with a set of regular sockets, wrench's and screw drivers.

But you're going to have to visit a body shop ultimately for the paint.

If you want to manage cost, call around to the local wrecking yards looking for perfect replacements. They usually go for half to two thirds of new, and you're getting the fit of factory parts. Fit is the challenge when using aftermarket body parts.
