"i have been well pleased with the product, and with its fit and finish. it seems to be a very adequate replacement for the one we had to replace.. the primer finish on this panel accepts new paint much better than i would normally expect one to do. i would use the same brand again."posted by: red on February 29, 2008

Perhaps, the most attractive part of the Mercury Grand Marquis is the front area where the headlight and grille are located. You might be wondering how the headlight and grille securely attach to that front area; indeed, there is something there that holds these two parts together--the header panel. This frame is made from sheet metal, fiberglass, or plastic and can take different shapes and designs depending on the car model and year it is made specifically for. Without this component, you will have trouble with a headlight and grille that always fall off. A header panel usually lasts long, but once it fails to support the said two components, you are then up for a Mercury Grand Marquis header panel replacement.
What advantages can a header panel made of sheet metal, fiberglass, or plastic give to a Mercury Grand Marquis?
Answer: All three materials are durable and can sustain some damage without being totally deformed. However, a header panel made of plastic may be cheaper than one made of fiberglass or sheet metal. Also, among the three, a sheet metal header panel is the only one that's susceptible to high temperature. This gives a slight edge to fiberglass and plastic header panels.
What is the importance of buying a direct-fit header panel for a Mercury Grand Marquis?
Answer: Buying a direct-fit header panel for a Mercury Grand Marquis ensures that installation hassles are eliminated. It is already quite tasking to look for a replacement header panel because the design must be very specific to the year and model of the car. If the design of a new header panel is different from the one pre-installed on the car, it is likely that the mounting holes for the headlight and grille will be different as well. Thus, purchase of a new headlight and grille fit for that header panel's design is necessary.
When is it needed to replace a header panel on a Mercury Grand Marquis?
Answer: After a collision, the front part of a Mercury Grand Marquis might get totally damaged both from the outside and inside. The header panel, most especially, needs to be replaced after such incident because it might be unable to support the headlight and grille altogether. Without these two components on, driving at night will be a struggle; also, air inflow to the engine compartment will be too much and the engine components will be more exposed to road debris. Once the header panel is deformed, it must be replaced immediately.
Where is it possible to find a replacement header panel for an old car model?
Answer: Replacement header panels for older car models are a bit difficult to find if search is done from a brick-and-mortar store. Success is more achievable when the search is done online. Although these old header panels may not be in stock in some auto parts stores, there are forum sites where members trade and sell this component at an agreeable price. Also, there are refurbished header panels that are sold in these sites.
