Oh yes I meant to say replace the header panel with 82 and up.
You pretty much said you wanted to replace it with the later style header panel. I took it you meant the quad headlight panel.
Good luck finding one, it shouldn't be too difficult.
I don't know what your local junkyards look like as far as older cars are concerned, but you can try checking out car-part.com. It might help narrow down the search. https://www.car-part.com/ or post an ad in the wanted section. I'm sure a fellow member could hook you up.

Someone pulled out in front of me and t bone happened. (Twas not my fault) but I want to try to look at the bright side. This is a 1979 el camino. I want to replace the hood with like a cowel or something. But what I really want is a phantom grill. They only make them for 82-87 i know. My question is. Can I put the later years front clip on this car. (My concern is the fenders also being different)

Looks good. If your state requires side marker lights, you could do like I did and create them in the bumper cover.
I dont know honestly if my state does. But its on historic plates. So it doesn't need to be inspected ever again. And the cops/highway patrol only worry about DUI and speeding. I think side marker lights are a good idea for safety. But this one i had to have the sleek finish.

Also I really like the way you did that. Looks great!
