Re: COBRA R front end is on

Clearance hmm? If you are talking about ground clearance, no more parking lot bump stops I only have 6 inches at lowest point, although when I drop the back end I may get an additional inch up front. If you are speaking of install clearance, I did have to do a little modification to the front steel bumper supports to make it fit, but nothing that would affect safety or integrity of the car.

Ground clearance, which answers my question. Wow, 6inches. Well, it looks great, definitely a head turner.

It looks OK. The lines around the front corners and they come to the front of the bumper just dont match up so well. But to each his own.

I would pimp it never the less.

I have to agree with the others, not nearly as smooth as it was (I have a pic of yours as 1 of my changing backgrounds - one of the shots of your car out in the desert - on my pc at work), but it's still your car, so if you like it, that's the important part!

Nice, I would leave the lights in the grill though, don't much care for the billet grill.

They are supposed to ask for your permission. Baltimore Street Mods asked for my permission before they posted my pic.

I would give them hell, or ask for a partial refund.

Tell em you want a partial profit from each bumper sold using your picture, that'll make them take it off.

Re: COBRA R front end is on

I have toyed with the idea of a Stage III Roush front on my Pony and keep the pony grill, but at over $600 for the Roush front, I think I will keep that stock one on there.
