I'm restoring my 1984 regal back to it's original header panel style (it's an 84) not sure why or how it ended up with an 83 & lower style front end I bought it that way.

My questions are do I need to remove my bumper in order to install my new header panel?

Do I need new bumper fillers or can I use my 83 & lower bumper fillers ?

So far I have the header panel & headlight bezels gonna order a new grill tomorrow

You need new bumper fillers, but you can install without removing the bumper

Yes, you will need the 84' and up bumper fillers and since they mount to the header panel and also the fender the front bumper does need be removed since it slides over the front portion of the fillers.
I bought the Goodmark fillers and they look and fit like the original ones but cost more.
