Please ID

Can somebody please tell me what the two pieces are called indicated by the arrows? Inner fender, apron, upper rail, something else? I've driven myself crazy the last couple of hours of searching trying to figure out what the proper name(s) is(are). I'd would have thought it was an "upper rail," but all the parts sites show a different looking part, searching on "apron" or "fender apron" comes up with almost zilch, and never a match when it does, and "inner fender" or "inner" anything usually comes up with the wheel well liner. All I know is mine is damaged near where it connects to the radiator support, and I'd like to know what I'm chasing if I have to replace or repair it.

1998 Ranger.

Thanks.

The larger part is called a Hood ledge, I think. One of the presses where I work stamp similar parts for Toyota, Honda, and Nissans. Not sure about the smaller part, sorry.

I appreciate the response, but "hood ledge" comes up empty with my various online searches, and parts lookups; however, the mystery part and the "outside" fender panel do provide a ledge for the hood where the two overlap and bolt together.

In the radiator support removal/installation threads, most guys just call it the fender (where the radiator support bolts to and is spot welded), although I have seen it referred to either as the apron or rail, but in my limited knowledge of vehicle body repair, I thought a rail is usually part of the frame.

Thanks again for the response though.
