You know... to me I thought the 03 cobras look a little too wide for the spokes, but seeing them on your car complimented by the GT hoodscoop and 281 wing... it looks great. Man what a hot car

Only one thing strikes me as odd about your car, you spent that much money on the Cobra front bumper and you still got a V6 rear bumper, lol, oh weeelllllll.

lol i spend 160 bucks on the cobra front bumper pre painted so i got a smoking deal on it the main reason above all others that i dont have a gt rear is i get enough what are you or are you posing this way they cant say i got a gt rear bumper and on top i put a 3.8 badge on it.

Nah... I wouldn't even think of the GT bumper that way. First off, it doesn't have GT engraved on it, and second off, I'd look at it more like a Mustang dual-exhaust bumper.

damn you got a smoking car. It's nice. I like the V6 and the GT bumpers, yours looks fine the way it is.

Man, you did get a good deal on that bumper! I have more than that much in my billet grills in my stock bumper and grill. Just ordered a "bumper grill" for it, I think that will give it a nice look with the billet grill I already have. Compare mine to his, mine are Chrome Cobra R replica 95 style.

IMO the 03 cobras look alot better. The wider face of the wheel adds to your car alot better. By face I mean the 5 star is wider than on the Cobra R's.

I was just comparing wings, Sharum, why does your wing look a lot bigger than Specters?

rick, the reason his looks bigger is cuz of the color of my car and teh shadows its the same wing the car being black may make it appear a little smaller

its real direct from saleen and is urathane, not fiber glass, very bendable you need to run double sided tape on the back side where it sits on the back end of the truck to keep it from rubbing, just a little line of 2 sided tape and its been fine for a year.

Nice rims!!! I was considering getting the Cobra Rims too, but I don't want to be a Cobra poser. SpectorV, keep the V6 bumper. It looks good on your car.
