you need a new hood, bumper, bumper cover, headlights, headlight panel, and you'll have to convert the headlight harness. the trim isn't going to match either so you'll have to switch all the trim all around the car which means a new rear bumper as well. no there isn't a kit, you have to piece it together. if you wanted an aero fox, why didn't you get one in the first place?

:p i knew this was going to turn into a thread. lol. i do agree though, don't do it! go to the stangnet.com forums and look up the thread, "before you butcher a 4eye....56k beware". i think the 4 eyes in there will help you to appreciate what you have.

BEFORE you butcher a 4 eye... (56k beware) - Mustang Forums at StangNet

+1 I never really cared for the 4 eye stangs either. If I was given a 4 eyed stang I would do exact what green has advised. Sell it and buy 87-93 model. Not only will you get what you want, but you will also gain 15-25 more horsepower (if both stangs are in stock form)
