03-04 Cobra Front End Conversion

I want to do a 2003-2004 Cobra front conversion. I know that Steeda sells a complete kit and a "Cobra R" Spliter. But money is tight and I will have to peice everything together. I just need to know what parts I need. Thanks.

Re: 03-04 Cobra Front End Conversion

dont do the cobra r front spliter, it looks bad and you are just asking to destroy it as its to low to the ground.

Go with ford racing it should cost about 375.00~ with foglights and bezels and chin spoiler (or should be around that might be more)

Then all you need is the fog light wiring harness if you dont already have fogs, and the connectors for 03/04 fog lights are different.

The issue with your hood is it will fit but it will be very close to the hood, the 03/04 cobra bumper posts come up higher so it WILL rub your hood. Most pull the posts back more~ or something and its ok. Just FYI.

You an go with the hood as well, check ebay for used parts... you will have it painted anyway just buy a brand new chin spoiler as 90% of them are hosed up lol (125.00 each new it seems...)

part price break down from what I know
Chin Spoiler 125
Bezels 15 each
Fog Lights 140 a set

http://www.tousleyfordparts.com/ has probably the BEST prices so call them and get it all priced~

Re: 03-04 Cobra Front End Conversion

id look on ebay if i were you. i purchased mine painted and shipped for about $300 which is a great deal. doesnt come with the fog lights or chin spoiler, but you can add those later. and yes youre hood will fit. itll stick out a little more than normal, but you cant really tell unless you are really up close. ill try to find the ebay store i purchased from. the paint matched perfect btw.

Re: 03-04 Cobra Front End Conversion

Ive seen more than a couple pictures of people showing where the bumper wore spots on the underside of the hood from the posts being to close~ its not the end of the world you can raise your posts to raise the front of your hood (but it will look funny gap wise on the sides)

Re: 03-04 Cobra Front End Conversion

It seems that they dont have any painted ones listed but this is the company i got mine from:

NEW FRONT BUMPER COVER 03 04 FORD MUSTANG COBRA 2003:eBay Motors (item 250475818375 end time Aug-31-09 08:10:31 PDT)

You could probably contact them and ask them to paint it for an additional cost. Or wait a few days until they list another painted one. They usually have new options every few days.
