Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m checking out a couple of Pony cutout Billet grille options available for your 2005-2009 Mustang GT. Both upper and lower grille options are the creation of innovative company Modern Billet™. They’re known for making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang using nothing but 100% quality Billet aluminum. As you can see the unique feature with at least these upper grilles in particular is the fact that they retain not only the running Pony emblem but also those iconic GT fog lights, while introducing a little bit of that retro flair, courtesy of the Billet aluminum. As for your finish options, well there is a slightly more traditional polished option, or a stealthy black option. Besides being constructed from 100% billet aluminum, both upper and lower grille options utilize an overlay design, meaning they simply attach to the factory grilles, because of this the install should be pretty straightforward, and only take you 30 minutes apiece, utilizing some basic hand tools and the included hardware. Oftentimes in these videos we talk about the benefits of pairing the upper and lower grille together, not only to increase the styling but to really nail that retro look, so not only are you helping the appearance side of things, but you’re also going to save yourself a few bucks in the process if you purchase both at the same time. So if you’re dead set on giving the front of your S197 the Billet treatment, but you’re not crazy about ditching those signature fog lights or running pony emblem, then these grille options from Modern Billet™ would be an excellent choice for your ride.

Aggressive Upper Grille. Add an aggressive edge to your Mustang with a 16 Bar Horizontal Billet Grille from Modern Billet. Featuring precision cut openings, this three piece Upper Grille allows you to retain your stock fog lights and Pony grille emblem intact with no modifications required. This GT Upper Grille is an overlay that attaches over the stock upper grille.

Matching Lower Grille. The optional Black Lower Billet Grille is the perfect complement to the Upper Grille, giving your Mustang a complete appearance upgrade. Featuring a 8-bar design, the Lower Grille is an overlay that will easily attach over the factory lower grille.

Quality Construction. Designed with the original OEM CAD data from Ford to ensure a perfect fit, both the upper and lower grilles are constructed from strong lightweight billet aluminum that is completed in a durable semi-gloss black powdercoated finish for an aggressive appearance and corrosion resistance.

Application. These Modern Billet Black Billet Grilles are designed to fit the 2005-2009 GT Mustang. The Upper and Lower Grilles are available separately or together as a Combo Kit. Please select from the ordering options above.

Technical Note. The Lower Grille does not fit the California Special or Shelby GT Mustang models.

kiki

  • The Modern Billet Black Billet Grille (05-09 GT) upper grille item #17044 will only work with the Roush Front Fascia - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6) item #69101 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/roush-frontfascia-0509.html). The lower grille opening is different and cannot work with lower grilles.

Question Resolved

fog light harness I have a 2007 Mustang with the "Pony Pkg"; is the fog light harness compatible with the GT fog lights?

Shadowmustang

  • The wiring harness in the Pony package will not be a direct fit into the GT Fog lights. You may need to either modify the ends of the harness to adapt to a GT Fog light or purchase a new harness.

Question Resolved

Will this grille fit on a V6? I have a 2006 V6 and I have been wanting to put some fog lights on it. I am currently looking at the GT Style Grille w/fog lights that is designed for the V6, but I don't like the spacing on the lights. I like the wider spacing on the GT grilles, while still keeping the pony in it's place. I'm also starting to like the billet style grille more than the honeycomb. Would this grille properly fit onto my V6? I plan on purchasing the wiring harness, OEM fog light switch, and smoked Halos as well.

Aidan

  • The spacing for the fog lights is going to be the same as the stock lights on a GT so as long as you are getting the wiring harness and OEM fog light switch, the Modern Billet Black Billet Grille (05-09 GT) will work just fine for your V6 Mustang!

    Excellent Grille

    I received both the upper and lower grilles and it took less than an hour to install them. The are very well made and easy to install. I removed the upper stock grille because I had to install halo fog lights and this made it much easier to work with when aligning the outer pieces. Overall an great product

    Review from Modern Billet Black Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 GT)

    Decent product

    Grille arrived in perfect condition. Was not a direct overlay for the lower grille though. When installed the left and right sides of the grille stuck out about half an inch and looked terrible. Pulle the grille off and bent it a little bit over my knee in the center and reinstalled. To me its not perfect but nobody has seemed to notice that it still sticks out a little bit.

    Rusting Screws

    Hey Mike, A little touch up paint will take care of screws, but the grill slats are aluminum and aluminum doesn't rust, it corrodes.

    rusty screws

    I posted an earlier review, but need to say that after less than a month on my car, the heads of all 8 mounting screws became rusted. also, it is a good idea during install to put masking tape on the slats near your fasteners so your screws do not inadvertently scratch the slats, otherwise those scratches will rust as well.

    Looks good from afar

    Product was used with the matching upper grill. Together they looked decent. Much better than stock, but certainly u get what u pay for. Installation was simple, seem to stick out on the ends tho. My advice: save your money and get the GT500 front end if u want to be fully happy.

    The material used to make the grill is heavy duty. The only problem is the screw heads were a little to big to fit between the fins.other wise I would have given it five stars

    Review from Modern Billet Black Billet Grille - Combo (05-09 GT)

    Perfect finished look

    This was exactly what the front end needed. The open gaps in the lower grill were unsightly, when there is no front license plate cover them. Now it has a great finished look. I took off the upper and lower inserts first, cleaned them and painted them black so the grayish inserts didn't show through or around the fog lamps. I did have to tape off the pony which was a trick, but well worth the extra effort. The install was very straight forward and easy, it just took time taking off the bumper to pop out the inserts. Also, be very careful when screwing in the screws because the black finish will show any marks. This is a great mod for these S197's.

    Review from Modern Billet Black Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 GT)

    Black lower billet grill.

    The piece itself is excellent and fits perfect but, if they just spent the extra few cents on some real nice black screws and fasteners this would make it perfect. Heck id pay an extra few bucks for it. So not really worth it if I have to go out and buy some good quality parts that should have been there in the first place.
