This is a front license plate bracket for your 1999-2004 Mustang Cobra. This is a direct Ford replacement part and includes the mounting hardware. The majority of states require a front license plate to be attached to the front bumper cover.
Much to my dismay I live in a front plate state. I bought the car and the holes in my bumper didn't line up perfectly to the license plate. Instead of drill new holes I bought this because the holes seemed a little farther out and that they were. I'm gonna give this 4 stars just because the mounting hardware it came with, proved confusing to me. So I ended up using all my own screws to attach the actual bracket onto the bumper and it's fine. It'll do the job!
