When you lift up the hood on a 96 thru 00 Honda Civic, Its the piece that the radiator and both head lights are screwed to. The hood latch also sticks up threw it and its spot welded about 8 times on top and a few times beneath by the bottom of the radiator, It runs horizontial from fender to fender and vertical down the right of a stock radiator. I am an idiot but I dont want to sound like one when calling around trying to find this part. "Yea, im looking for a Uhhh...You know the thing... on a...Uhhh, 97 civic that the headlights attach to?" You get the point.
