I'm repairing a 2005 Mustang base model (v6) and I've purchased a front bumper cover, bumper brackets (the pieces of metal that bolt the bumper to the fender) and the absorbers, but what else is needed to attatch a front bumper cover? Is there a rod or some support that holds up the two center columns that are next to the headlights?

There are 2 composite plastic supports that mount on each side next to the headlights that the bumper cover attaches to in the top. aside from that there is just the 2 10mm studs that the bumper cover bolts to on both sides, just under the fender, and then probably some screws on bottom to hold the plastic skid plate on and stiffen the lower part of the bumper cover.

Mostly it just rests on the styrofoam in front of the bumper itself.

Thanks for the help! Doesn anyone happen to have pictures of these parts though? I'm trying to order them out of a catalog but I gotta feeling this catalog isn't calling the parts by their right name. The catalog is here: 2005 Ford Mustang Reinforcement - Parts.com

these are part #'s for the bumper reinforcement brackets that also connect the front bumper lights. they are pop-riveted to the bumper cover and then two bolts hold them to the upper support structure of the bumper cover. the two uprights that you speak of (the uprights on either side of the grill) have no support structures behind them other than what is there from ford meaning the sides of the grill shell. they have two bolts that bolt them up. you can see these when the hood is raised.
