Front bumper support bar?

So i'm in the process of changing my front bumper to an mtech one. Before I actually begin, I am wondering, when I remove the metal support bar off my old bumper, can I just use the same place pieces that hold it into place? Or do I need to get new ones. If so, anyone know what the part numbers are?

you'll mostly likely break alot of them and those that don't break will soon enough. I think the proper part is 51161881149 but I'm not sure

Ya I got some of the larger pieces. But there are a lot of small little piece lining the actual support bar itself. Not sure if i need those to.
