Arrow 5th gen conversion Kit?

wuz up guys/gurlz how are we doing today? im thinking about going for the 5th gen conversion kit on my 04 v6 mustang! it looks really nice and is actually affordable, anyway will i be able to use aftermarket 05-09 headlights and hoods with this after the conversion? the kit comes with hood,fenders,bumpers and etc, i didnt know if the hood come custom to fit an 04 but look like a 05 or it was actually a real hood from an 05-09 and whih means i could swap out to a different aftermarket hood, i would really like to have 5th gen cobra look, there gorgous looking! any help is always apperciative! thank u guys and have a blessed day!

Re: 5th gen conversion Kit?

Ive yet to see one that looked even close to good, it just looks out of place. If you like the look then get an 05, you will pick up a better interior and chassis in the process

Just my opinion of course~

Re: 5th gen conversion Kit?

I've only seen one New Edge->5th generation conversion and it just looked horrible IMHO.

If you want to retain a lot of the looks, especially for the Shelby you might be looking at a lot of fab work and then a lot of money which could go into something a bit more productive.

But to answer your question I doubt a lot of the parts are from an actual 05-09, or 2010. They are just two different body styles (chassis).

Re: 5th gen conversion Kit?

i saw a guy in my neigborhood who did it and it looked pretty clean, see i like the front on the 5th gen but the back end doesnt look so hot. idk if i dont go with that then im def gonna go with that cobra r body kit...they look clean as all get out! im not big on wings but that cobra r wing looks good with it too. idk im not big on body kits in general unless its on an import. that cobra kits have taste and thats what i like. idk ill let u guys know what i decide on and post pics. thanks for the opinions there much appercaited

Re: 5th gen conversion Kit?

Man, I don't want to beg, but please don't get the 05+ front end kit. I've seen them and they really don't fit the lines and the body of the new edge model. I've also heard fabrication is involved because the parts don't always sit right and rub. If you really want the look of 05+, I'd look into getting the actual car.

I do agree on the Cobra R kit though. I like the 03/04 cobra pieces better, but the R kit is definitely better looking than the 05+ front end conversion. If you're not into the R wing, you could look into a steeda wing or a saleen wing to go with the Cobra R kit. To me that large *** wing should only be on 300 performance red 00 Cobra R's...but that's just me.

Re: 5th gen conversion Kit?

well ive done some research today and im not going with the conversion! i think they look good and i always go with what looks good to me but in this case the BS out ways the good! apparently this things are a MOFO to put on and the extra fabrication is like almost buildin one yourself. and the cost to have it perfectly put on is almost as much as the kit itself! i have decied on this kit in the pics! this is sexy as it gets! i wanbt wing and all!

Re: 5th gen conversion Kit?

Some places like CJ Pony Parts offer a conversion kit for the Cobra R. I think it includes the bumper, hood and spoiler. Kits like this tend to be cheaper than piecing everything together separately, unless you get a real good deal somewhere.

Since you still have your stock bumper, you could do side exhaust like the Cobra R too if you want.

its not a bad idea man, bro you can get a used 07 cobra for like 30 grand, somtimes 27 grand and from a dealership, which means financing!

go for it man, if you can afford it, ENJOY IT!

Re: 5th gen conversion Kit?

Yah, I've seen 05/06 GT's with decent miles (below 30k) for around 15 or 16 thousand up here. The time to buy one was when the dealerships were really struggling and giving them away, one aftermarket company picked up a brand new 08 GT for 18K to use as a project car.

Hell yes sir...If I had my way, I'd own every special model mustang from Ford from 94-04 - bullitt, mach 1, 35th Anniversary, GTS, Cobra, etc. And if the model was offered for more than one year...like the terminator/mach 1, I'd own each year.

Some may ask why I would do that...because I f**king could
