What's a 1970 Lemans header panel made of?

Looking at a replacement for my badly damaged one. The "new" one is cracked in the middle.
I can't tell for sure what they are made of, and how hard it would be to repair. Not looking for perfect repair, but just to keep it useable for now.

Thanks,
Russ

Forgot another question.
Is the Lemans and the Lemans Sport header the same?
Thanks,
Russ

If you mean the piece that holds the headlights and goes above the bumper, they are made of fiberglass. Really old fiberglass is fun to work with, but not impossible. Some 71s had fiberglass pieces, but all the 72s I have worked on have metal.

Thanks.
Yeah, that piece. :-)
I used to call it the nose before, never heard term header panel until I moved back to Ohio a few years ago.
