Default Header Panel

I'm trying to chang the Header Panel on my 2000 Ford Ranger, but can't get all the bolt holes to line up with header panel and Body. Is there a secret getting these lined up correctly. I tried putting the bottom header panel in first but the top and middle didn't line up. I lined up the middle header panel next and the top and middle line but the bottom doens't. Anybody got any suggestions that would help me.

thanks

Question ????

Is it a NEW header panel?

Ford or aftermarket?

There ain't but 8 bolts that hold in on.......2 each on fenders, & 2 each on the middle support brackets...........

I've put mine on & off couple times with no problem, and it's a used original. Lotta the aftermarket junk don't line up for squat, so you have to faness them.

Default Re: Header Panel

It's aftermarket header panel. I put the header panel on last night all holes line up with exception of the left corner and the middle bolt which is just a little short. I guess I'll have to drill a hole for the bottom left corner.

Are there brackets that attached to parking light assembly?

Thanks

Not surprised, as I stated above, lotta aftermarket pieces have to finessed to fit right..............

Not brackets, but there are black flat plastic pieces that go between the light bolts & header panel.........
