    I would guess the chances of successfully modifying a non-URPA bumper would be slim and none.

    You might try www.car-part.com and/or www.cadillacheaven.com.

    Your paint code is on the RPO sticker under the spare tire cover.

    I don't see why it would be very hard to drill a few holes and install your old sensors into the new bumper. Just be sure to measure and drill the holes (size) accurately.

    Went into my service manuals - the URPA sensors don't go through the metal sub-bumper, only the synthetic cover. My mistake.

    So, yes, with care you could drill and install the old sensors and adapter rings in the replacement bumper cover.
