Default What makes up the front bumper in a first gen miata

I put a new front bumper on not too long ago and it seems it droops below the hood...what aM i missing all I got was the bumper and plastic air dam piece, I have some zip ties holdin it up some so it does'nt droop as much, am I missing some sort of filling inside?

Do you have all the "5mph" stuff that bolts to the front clip? Mine is gutted and it doesn't sag. Oh, what about the little metal bracket that bolts to the cross member and the bumper cover, do you have that piece?
