My credo
None at all.
I searched but couldn't find the answer. I know it was done before but maybe a different forum. My 2001 Ranger finally shot it's last shot on the way home last week. I found a 1995 Ranger that took a punch to the nose. Frame is straight and damage is cosmetic. When swapping to the newer 2001 front end, does the inner fender wells have to change or is it all in the header panel? Also, any reason not to bolt the header panel in, instead of spot welding? I really don't want to have to unpack my storage unit to get it, I'm about to move and it's one more added hassle. TIA

I used self-tapping screws on my race truck and they held up fine for 2 seasons. I'd probably use some lock tight if I was going to do it permanent. Screw it in, back out and apply locktight, screw it back down. Bolts should work too.
