Your best bet is to buy a new header panel, you can get one brand new for under $100.

It would be easy to do while you're doing the bumper cover. The bumper cover must come off, since it slides into the header panel, which means that the headlights have to come out. After you get both of those off and the radiator cover off, there's just 8 bolts to swap it out.

Yeah, I forgot the bumper. That indeed comes off as well. :(

Not if they have to ship it.....

I found a local place that supplies crash parts to local dealers, and they had one in stock for $89. Went and picked it up. I'm sure there would be somewhere similar in most larger towns.
