That front and rear valance can be straightened on an English Wheel, without a terrible amount of work.

It's a $250 investment if you buy a cheap one, maybe someone local to you has one you can use..

Toss the front valance as the repros are spot on, fix the rear valance as they do not fit well. Buy a good used fender extension and try to save the trunk, if you cannot then save it for patch material as most have rust under the lip and yours being a dry car may be really clean in that region. If it has any rust then look for another as rust AND dents do not make sense to fix.
