05 front end install

I finally got all the parts rounded up so I will have my 05 front end on this weekend My question is, what kind of fasteners (if any) do I need to complete the swap or do you use all of your old ones?

Should be able to use all your old ones.

Only thing off the top of my head would be you'll need the speed nuts and bolts to secured the top of the 05-07 heads to the new header panel.
Or you can just use some small screws and screw it directly to the header panel.

I bought the 05 header panel also. Will I still need some new nuts and bolts?

Cool. I just don't want to run into any problems. Saturday's going to be like early Christmas. I don't want to have to make 3 runs to the hardware store like I usually do when I do things like this

Yes, with the new header panel you need either the speed nuts and bolts or just use some screws for the top of the headlamp.

For the bottom you can use the ones used for the corners on the 99-04 trucks.

Do you know if the filler panel (the plastic piece between the chrom part of the bumper and the grille) attaches to the bumper with clips or screws. I got the parts today but didn't open the boxes to see how they went together....

The 05-07 top and bottom is all clipped together from what I remember.....haven't pulled one apart in almost a year.
Plastic clips and push pins are all that I remember.

From what I remember, you have to install the fog lights prior to assembling the bumper. Possibly the clips to install the bumper mounting brackets as well.

Now I'm wondering if those clips came with the parts I got or not. All these parts are brand new OEM. I guess I'll have to tear into those boxes tomorrow.
