Installation does require that you have a 1987-93 Mustang GT front bumper cover for this insert to install properly. Don’t forget if your front bumper has seen better days and it is time to retire it, we carry a full line of replacement front bumper covers.

Once you are ready to install, you will have to cut your GT bumper. Lucky for you the kit includes all needed installation instructions and templates to help make the cutting as easy as possible. Align your template into place and then you can make the cut. Next flip the template to the other side and cut again. Once cutting is done, test fit the 93 Cobra grille insert. If it sits flush all you have to do is install the running pony emblem onto the grille and apply the tape. Finish by removing the tape backing and firmly press the grill insert into place.

The 5.0Resto 93 Cobra Grille Insert is made from the original Ford Tooling. It includes insert, chrome running pony emblem, hardware and instructions. This is the perfect solution to convert your Fox Body Mustang into a Cobra clone.

The Cobra Grille Insert features an opening to allow for improved air flow. This provides engine cooling advantages over the factory bumper that did not have any openings. Add some unique 1993 Cobra styling to your Stang with this grille insert. NOTE: It will need to be painted to match.
The 5.0 Resto '93 Cobra Grille Insert Kit is a great way to add a custom, yet OE touch to your '87 to '93 Mustang.

The kit includes a chrome running pony with attaching nut, grille insert, attaching tape, and instructions with a cut out template.

The insert kit is also available kitted with a new GT bumper cover. You'll want to have your insert professionally painted to match your car.

Once painted, you can install your pony using the included attaching nut. To begin installation, carefully cut out the provided template along the outlines.

Tape the template to the bumper cover and mark the cut out area. Transfer the template to the other side and mark that cut out area.

Now for the fun part. To make the cut, we used an air-powered body saw to cut out the opening in the bumper cover.

Apply the supplied attaching tape to the perimeter of the grille insert, center the insert in the cut out, and stick it down.

Short of the needed paint work, this is a relatively easy appearance upgrade that features an OE fit and finish.
