Default some insight please

Hey guys, just bought a 97 boxster, and need to do a couple things. Would like to replace the front bumper, what do these usually go for? It's got some paint missing on the bottom, and a couple of tears, the front of the bumper is ok, just the underneath. Aswell as the rear brake pads maybe rotors, recomend doing it yourself? Or have someone do them? I was a mechanic a few years back, but never did work on a porsche before. Also is it possible to replace just the rear window of the soft top or does the whole roof have to be replaced? Thanks guys.

Brakes and rotors are simple, some of the simplest brake systems I have ever worked on. 10mm allen, some pliers, and a screwdriver.

Used front bumpers are usually pretty cheap, but the cost of shipping is usually 100-150 bucks, which seems to scare people away. I don't have any around anymore, but I use to have a bunch of bumpers that I couldn't give away due to the shipping, so they got tossed.
