Help me pimp my ride!

Hey all. I have a '94 Civic EX I got for cheap. I've been using it as my daily driver for the past few months and I'm in love with it. In fact, I'm so in love with it that I want to make it awesome. I figure I'm going to do this incrementally, starting with what my car needs most and ending with some performance options.

Right now I need three things, in this order:
1. Exhaust - My resonator exploded and took off everything behind it. My car is loud!!

<a href="http://s209.photobucket.com/albums/bb319/TheNeutral/Car%20-%20Civic/?action=view&current=IMG_0003.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb319/TheNeutral/Car%20-%20Civic/IMG_0003.jpg" border="0" alt="Note: No exhaust"></a>

2. A new hood - The hood has had a rather curious dent in it since I bought the car.

<a href="http://s209.photobucket.com/albums/bb319/TheNeutral/Car%20-%20Civic/?action=view&current=IMG_0006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb319/TheNeutral/Car%20-%20Civic/IMG_0006.jpg" border="0" alt="Bumper and Hood"></a>

3. A new bumper. There's slight damage on it, probably from the same thing that dented the hood.


So my questions are, where would the best place to get a new exhaust be? should I try salvage yards for body parts?

I want to do pretty much everything besides the exhaust myself. And if I can get the parts cheap enough, a Maaco paint job isn't out of the question (I think they're like $250). My budget so far is about $800.

Thanks!

Well if you need a new exhaust anyway and want to upgrade your performance you may as well get an aftermarket exhaust.

I kinda have to. I don't have my stock exhaust any more, it's in pieces on the side of the road somewhere.
