keep an eye on ebay, probably the best bed. The fogs are not cheap and the bezels are not either. Also the plugs for fogs are different than V6/GT. Finally the grill delete is needed (the back panel doesnt look right you need a mach1/cobra specific version) and a floating pony is needed as well. The hood also wont fit right (will rub as the parts where the headlights are that the front bumper goes up higher and rubs the hood.

How can I fix the hood rubbing or do I need to buy a new hood?

I actually just replaced my cobra bumper with a new one. You have to drill about a 1/2 inch further back in the header pannel so the top of the bumper is further back and doesn't rub. I'll go take some pics now.

Here you go. The 2nd pic shows where my hood was rubbin my first cobra bumper. The last one shows the hole I drilled. The further back one gives me just enough clearance for the hood so you don't have to replace it
