I assume this is a wet-location rated fixture, that is a high-hat (recessed can)?
Sorry to dissapoint, but I would toss it and consider it a good thought when you were at the estate sale, just not a fully -baked plan due to lack of knowledge, which isn't your fault because no one there told you, and you did not know; Hence you are on a learning curve.

It is not worth the trouble to salvage it or get the parts that are missing. Too risky, especially for the shower of all places.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
