What to do with Grill area on Cobra Bumper?

So I recently acquired a cobra bumper cover... And I think the front end of the car looks simply atrocious with nothing in that huge gaping hole between the hood and the bumper.

Have you seen anyone do anything unique with this? 'cause i just hate looking at this blank space lol

The Cobra grille opening is basically the same as the Mach opening.... Any consideration in just putting a Mustang emblem in there? It's what works for me. Check AM, LMR etc, there's a few different options as far as that goes.

I always like that front bumper. I had a "Cobra" in mine but it was "real" Terminator. Actually had a "horse" from the factory but I swapped it out for the snake.

You could do the running horse, the Cobra or get creative with some emblem that accurately describes what you got. I like some of the retro emblems when placed on a newer ride....like the 60's GT fender badge that has the "G" above the "T".
