Cobra rear bumper (with "cobra" sanded out)

well, I've got 400 bucks in my pocket right now and have been considering getting 15% window tint and keyless entry/alarm, which would be a total of around $350. But I also am thinking of adding a gt rear bumper with this money which would fit my dual exhaust better than the sixer bumper... but I like the look of the cobra rear bumpers a lot (with the black part at the bottom). I think Junior was saying he was doing this but I am thinking about getting a cobra rear and sanding out the "COBRA" letters and then painting after sanding (of course). I like the "MUSTANG" letters but that isn't an option with the cobra rear.
So... do you guys think I should go for the cobra thing with no letters or just the gt rear. And btw this would be the cobra one i'd get, and it's already painted my color ... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...MakeTrack=true

Cheaper for the GT. Not alot of guys putting body kits on their Cobras.

I think it would look pretty sweet man. I'm just waiting on my bullit friend to get his cobra bumper...so I can buy his GT bumper off of him lol. It's such a sweet bullit. Mach 1 chin spoiler, eleanor wheels, 4.10 gears, etc etc. He's about to buy a 2.5 inch cowl hood, CDC concepts c pillars, louver style, Cobra rear bumper with cobra shaved. God that's such a nice car. He showed me some pics of a bullit with a shaved cobra bumper and it was a nice looking rear end.

you cant just "sand" out the letters you have to fill them with liquid urathane and smooth that out.

ok, yea... I am planning on asking somebody at this "Sherwin Williams: Automotive" here in town about the removal of the letters, it would be really cool if they could somehow get the "MUSTANG" in the "COBRA" place.

that would defy the point of getting a urathane bumper, the proper way to do it is using liquid poly urathane

True, liquid urethane would work best.

would liquid urethane be a proffesional job or is that something I can buy, put into the letters, take off excess, and then have a place paint?...and if so, how hard of a job would that be?

You could do it...by trial and error, but it won't turn out as good as a professional doing it. If I was doing this..I'd find a shop that would lend me the use of their tools and try to do it myself just because I take pride in all that I do myself.

Hey Kyle, I'm gonna ask the guy I know with a bullit who's doing his and see how he's doing his. He works at a body shop, so I'm sure he'll have some trick to do it easy. I'll see him again sat night.

I've also seen people cut the 'Mustang' out and replace it with a flat place of urethane and use liquid urethane to bond it all back together.
