Need Some Help on Lighting

I am upgrading my headlights, tailights and fogs. I want to make sure before i bought anything that the headlights for an 03/04 cobra are the same as every other mustang of those body style? Also where do you mount your slim ballast because the passenger side is an easy mount but the driver side is a bit more tricky. Also any good suggestions on mounting ballast for the Fogs would be well appreciated.

Re: Need Some Help on Lighting

I don't know for certain if all the bulbs are the same, but I do believe the Cobra taillights are different (they have the amber turn signal).

It sounds like you are doing HIDs, in which case you can mount the ballasts anywhere. HIDs also change the stock bulb. If you move the ballasts too far away you can always extend the wires. Some other ideas are to mount the headlight and fog light ballasts together. Otherwise you can really mount the ballasts anywhere they will fit.

All mustang headlight 99-04 are similar. The 1999/2001 Cobra's are the only different taillights as they have the amber and a different harness connecting them. I have no idea about HID Ballast.

you can hide the ballasts pretty good, take your battery out or your CAI on the passenger side and see if you can slide it under the front area below the headlight so it will be out of sight.

For the fog lights there are a few areas but not sure you would want to mount them on the bumper because if you take it off you will have issues with the ballast being stuck to it.

Re: Need Some Help on Lighting

I am having to buy a new bumper cover so when i get ready to install all of the lights i will have the bumper cover off and should be able to hide the fog ballasts that way with no problem.
