It would be a really easy process. I would remove the factory black plastic mesh, cut the holes to appropriate size, and the whip up a mesh/wire screen that would give it a nice aluminum look. 98' cobras are N/A right? If you wanted to go all-out and knab extra points with your buddys or at mustang events a complete air intake system could be fabricated to boot. It'd just take some time and ingenuity.

Stutz was a bad name for a child but a great name for a car.

It's a waste of money and time. You won't get any real noticable airflow nor power.

I'm pretty sure he just wanted a cosmetic boost. Not everything you put on a car has to be about speed.

Just for an idea when I had the 95 gt I painted the little scoops on it with the mirage paint you get from autozone. At one point it actually blended in with the factory color and then it changed to purple.

97 Cobra #777 Blk/Blk
ProCharger P600B 7psi w/3 core intercooler, off road x-pipe, flows, pro kit, oil separator mod.
