Justin: If you're looking to fix up a busted factory bumper on your New Edge Cobra or just looking to give that '99 to '04 Mustang a facelift in general, well, then, OPR's Cobra Front Bumper here would be a great choice. Now, you have to keep in mind, the option we are talking about in this video will ship primed. Yes, I know this bumper has been sprayed right already, however, that is just for installation and B-roll purposes only. So with that said, just keep in mind, guys, you are purchasing a primed option here with this video. Now, the Cobra Front Bumper will be built to factory specs from that durable, yet flexible urethane, but again, will need to be painted prior to the installation. Price point's gonna hover around that $650 price point, while the install itself will get a middle of the road two outta three wrenches on the difficulty meter here and it should take a few hours to complete from start to finish as we'll show you later in the video.So as I mentioned earlier, guys, this bumper will appeal to a wide variety of '99 to '04 owners out there for a couple of different reasons. Now, first and foremost, if you are a Terminator or Cobra owner in general and you've gotten maybe into a little fender bender or your factory bumper is just beat, well, then, this would be a great way to get your car back to new again. On the other hand, if you do have a V6, GT Mach 1, or Bullitt and you really just dig the look of those factory Cobra bumpers, and let's face it, who doesn't, then going with the OPR option here would make for a relatively easy and affordable way to facelift your ride. Now, the bumper itself again, has been built to factory specs out of that pliable urethane material here, guys, so you can expect a great fit and a lot more durability than say, compared to a fiberglass option, which really doesn't have that flex.Now, since this is a primed option, you will need to get the bumper painted to match your ride prior to the installation. Now, I do wanna point out a couple of quick things here, first and foremost, this bumper is meant to delete that factory grille entirely just like the OE Cobra. So with that said, don't try to install the honeycomb grille from your V6 or your GT into this opening because it simply will not work. Now, secondly, guys, this bumper does not include any of the fog light bezels or the fog lights themselves to fit in the lower portion of this bumper, and in my opinion, they really are needed to help complete the look. However, you can find them here on the site for about roughly 80 to 90 extra bucks, so definitely check those out as well.Last but not least, it also does not ship with any kind of chin spoiler. Now, OPR does make a really clean looking Cobra-style chin spoiler that you can also find here on the site and something to consider when checking out something like this to really nail that look entirely. But outside of all that, the bumper will install just like your factory piece. In fact, OPR does kick in some brackets and pop rivets to help you get everything in place, but that's pretty much about it. However, we do wanna give you a better idea of how things are gonna go down here, so here's that detailed walkthrough we promised you earlier along with a quick tool breakdown.Man: The tools needed for this install are a quarter-inch ratchet, a pop rivet gun, an 11-millimeter socket, a clip removal tool, a Phillips head screwdriver, and a small pocket screwdriver. So the first step of this install is gonna be to pop the hood and remove the clips at the upper part of the grille before moving to your inner fender liners and then underneath the bumper. Next, I'm gonna remove this screw on the fender liner as well as one clip on the inside to pull the fender liner back and gain access to the bolts and screws that are on the inside.Now I'm gonna use an 11-millimeter socket to remove the two nuts on the inside of the bumper. This is also gonna be a really good time to unplug my fog light as I have very good access to it. Now I'm gonna repeat that process on the other side of the vehicle. This bumper has been off before and the screw is missing and been replaced. So I'm gonna use a 7-millimeter socket to remove this screw, remove the inner fender liner, pull it back, and pull the bolts for the bumper. Now I'm just gonna pop these two clips out from underneath the bottom. This bumper should be ready to come off. With all that hardware removed, we're ready to pull the bumper off.So as you can see, this bumper comes with provisions for fog lights. However, the factory GT fog lights are not gonna fit in here. This is only designed for the Cobra-style fog lights. Now, this bumper does not come with these fog lights, however, if you go to our website, you can find a whole kit that includes the fog lights and the brackets that you'll be needing to put them into this bumper and now is gonna be a good time to do it as you got the bumper off the car, it's a lot easier to install. So because there's no fog lights to install on this bumper, now we can install the supplied brackets. You're gonna need a rivet gun and the supplied rivets and you're gonna put them on in either corner. Use your factory bumper orientation to figure out how the brackets go on and you should be fine.All right. Now I'm ready to install the brackets that come with the kit. I'm also gonna use the rivets that are included with the kit as well. Now, for this, you're gonna need a rivet gun and make sure you hold the bracket tight up against the bumper and squeeze the rivet. And now we can repeat this process on the other side of the bumper. So now we got our brackets riveted on, we can throw the bumper into place and we're in the home stretch. Now I'm gonna reinstall the factory hardware that holds the bumper onto the fender.That's gonna wrap up this review and install the OPR Cobra Front Bumper Cover for your '99 to '04 Mustang.

Great look, and great fit!
This bumper really changed the look of my 04 GT for the better, adding a more aggressive look to the front end. Very easy install also. Took me about 2 hours from start to finish, including wiring up the new fog lights. I was nervous about the fit, but it lines up perfectly. The only issue is with the hood closing, but you just have to push the grill back a bit on the actual bumper (the horns of the bumper), and screw it in. Piece of cake.Helpful (0)

I just install this bumper on my 2001 mustang v6 and my old honeycomb grille wont fit its to long-what am I doing wrong
The OPR Cobra Front Bumper Cover will not accept the GT/V6 OEM grilles, as this will be the same design as the OEM 2003-2004 Cobra.
what’s the difference between the primed and unpainted one?
The primed OPR Cobra bumper cover is ready to be painted right out of the box. The unpainted version would need prep work before being ready to be painted.
Will this fit my 2003 mustang base model??
This bumper will fit the base model Mustangs yes!
Will i be able to install the bezels and fog lights later on without haveing to remove the bumper? I am putting this on my v6 and dont have the money for the fog light kit yet.
Hello! As for installing fog lights on this OPR Cobra Front Bumper, it could be possible to get the fog lights in after it has been installed. One could probably get his hands in there to complete the job with some dedication, but with cramped spaces and tight angles it might just be easier to uninstall the bumper and install lights when the time comes.
Will this bumper cover fit my 2000 v6 Mustang with out any mods to it?
This will fit on your 2000 V6 Mustang without having to make custom modifications.
The OPR Cobra Front Bumper Cover is designed to fit any Mustang from 99-04, including the V6.
You'll need screws (you can find at any local auto parts store). 2 for the foglight plastic inserts (each side). 4 for each of the fog lights (each side). Other than that, you may as well go ahead and replace the 2 plastic retaining body pins that attach to the underside of the front bumper.
This is made from a durable yet flexible urethane.
This will not fit GT models with the stock GT grille and hood.
Yes, this can be installed on the 01 Bullitt.
The OPR Cobra Front Bumper Cover will have a fair amount of clearance for intercoolers, as it is designed to match the OEM Cobra which fits a large heat exchanger. Unfortunately we cannot confirm if an intercooler will fit as the intercooler location and size would need to be taken into account, and this will vary from kit to kit.
This piece does not require a new front impact absorber for installation. If your car has been in an accident or being restored, it may be beneficial to also update your absorber.
This will be the full Cobra bumper and will replace the current bumper.
The OPR Cobra Front Bumper Cover is designed to install as is, without a grille. This bumper is based on the 2003-2004 Cobra bumper.
Yes, the OPR Cobra Front Bumper Cover will fit a 2003 Mach 1 without issue.
