Default 1976 Pontiac Firebird front bumper on a 1980

Hi Fellas,
First time on the forum for me. I've got a 1980 Trans Am project I'm working on which, when it's all said and done, will end up looking more like a '76 Formula. I've got a few questions on swapping out parts of the front clip. I have the 76 Formula hood with the dual scoops, and I have the monstrously heavy endura front bumper and the header panel to go with the hood. I plan on using my sub frame, fenders, core support, and bumper brackets off my '80. The endura bumper I have (formula) is a little beat up, so I'm looking at buying one of these:

Which they say is a fiberglass repro of the 76 Trans Am bumper. Any clue if the TA and the Formula used the same bumper? And any clue if the '76 Trans Am bumper was fiberglass from the factory?Also I'm guessing there will be some fab work to get the bumper and header properly bolted on. Any suggestions or pointers?
