Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at Pony Delete upper and lower grille options for the 2005-2009 Mustang GT. Billet grilles are a great and relatively inexpensive way to completely change up the look of your ride, giving you that retro vibe, without getting rid of those iconic GT fog lights. Of course, both Billet grille options are made from 100% Billet aluminum and are available in your choice of either a polished option shown here in front of me, or a very sleek black option shown back there on our 07 GT. Since both grilles are overlays, the install will be slightly easier than your typical grille install, however you will need to remove your factory running Pony emblem from your stock grille first before getting started. After that getting the upper and lower grille installed should take you about 30 minutes apiece. Besides completing the look if you pair both the upper and the lower grille options together, you will actually save yourself a few bucks in the process, if you decide to purchase both at the same time. If you love the look of this grille, but you want a subtle reminder of the iconic Pony car that you’re driving, then you might want to check out this optional tri bar running Pony logo, just to give you a little bit more customization. So if you’re like many Mustang owners out there and think your S197 can benefit from the Billet treatment, then you might want to check out these upper and lower grille options right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Aggressive Upper Grille. Now you can add an aggressive style to your GT Mustang with a Modern Billet Black Upper Grille. Featuring a 16-bar design, this three piece black horizontal grille retains your stock fog lights, but eliminates that Pony grille emblem. This Upper Grille is designed as an overlay that easily attaches over your stock GT grille.

Matching Lower Grille. The optional Black Lower Billet Grille is a perfect match to the Upper Grille to complete the appearance of your Mustang. Featuring a 8-bar design, the Lower Grille is a overlay that simply attaches 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 Pony Delete 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.

Is this a compatible swap with the V^ GT style grille w/angel eye fog lights? i really like the black look, and i have a v6 mustang and am doing the grille swap with the gt grille w/angel ete fog lights (http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-grille-blackchrome-0509v6.html) because i do not want to do the delete kit and have the honeycomb outlay behind the billet grille, can i just swap the billet grille that comes with the gt style, with the black one here?

Will this fit in an 07 California Special?

Jemo

  • The top grille of the Modern Billet Black Pony Delete Billet Grille (05-09 GT) will fit with the California Special front bumper. The lower grille is not compatible as the California Special grille opening is a different size.

Question Resolved

Molding grinding When installing the grill, is it absolutely necessary to grind down the molding that surrounded the pony emblem? Will the grill fit properly without this step?

Easy

  • You do not have to grind down them emblem, but it will not sit as flush as it should. There is a raised edge around the perimeter of the horse that can easily be ground down with a small grinder such as a Dremel. This worked on mine and looks great. The only recommendation is to find some good quality screws to replace the ones that come with it, they tend to rust.

Is the upper grille compatible with a V6 model? I have a V6, but they do not offer a billet grille with fog lights or at least I can't seem to find it.

Chippy

  • This will not fit the GT unfortunately. I've attached a few that we do carry that comes with fog lights that will fit on your V6. If you'd like to check out all the available grilles for your V6, please click here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/05-07-mustang-grills.html and then select the 2005-2009 V6 filter.

    great appearance addition

    First off I was expecting something plastic like all the other grille inserts I've seen for vehicles. It was metal. Booyaa. A couple uneven parts but meh. bottom install was a breeze. Maybe 10 minutes. Top is easiest to use a jig saw from the back of factory grille to cut out black pony and then use angle grinder to make it flush with the honeycombs. About 10 minutes. Install middle piece, drill your 4 holes and then install side pieces. Looking at about 45 minutes. It all fit great. Looks great especially because I had nothing in the bottom grille so you could see the whole bottom half of the rad. Another great product I got from AM

    05-09 BILLET GRILLE- PONY DELETE

    Love the look, just need to give a little more detailed instructions for the upper grille regarding modification to the black molding encasing pony emblem. This ABSOLUTELY HAS TO BE TRIMMED DOWN in order for grille to sit correctly in place. Luckily we had a friend at a body shop who grinded it down for me. This should be specified in the instructions, otherwise it doesn't look good protruding in center. It isn't the pony itself, it's the molding around it.

    Looks Great!!

    I ordered the Upper (Pony delete) and Lower Black Billet Grilles on Tuesday and received them Thursday, super fast shipping as always!! It took me about 10 mins to install the lower, BUT, took about 2 hours to install the upper, its was an easy install, however I took my time on the upper, trying to get it perfect, which I did, thankfully. After install I stood back and looked at my "New" front end and I was very pleased, I was expecting some flimsy billet aluminum, but I was very surprised at how thick and sturdy this was, its a very nice set and makes the car look 100% better and I would recommend it to anyone!! Great job AM and Stack Racing!!!

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

    Aggressive Looks

    Each person who has noticed the grille has said the same thing, "It looks aggressive." That works for me. I was replacing a chrome honeycomb billet grille that was on the car when I bought it. Taking that off was the hardest part of the install, so if you're starting with a stock grille, you should have no problem at all. The quality of the grille itself was better than expected, but the install hardware could use a definite upgrade. I actually hit the hardware store to replace it myself. Also, be careful to not damage the coating on the grille while tightening the screws. A lot of people have discussed grinding down the surrounding plastic molding after removing the emblem, I decided I wanted to do as little damage as possible, so I opted to leave it as is and it fit fine. Speaking of removing the emblem, good luck not breaking the retaining clips on the back. I think I was 1 for 4 on those, keeping in mind the main goal of not breaking the emblem itself. Overall, I'm very pleased with the outcome of this mod and I'm glad I went with the upper and lower combo to complete the look.

    Awesome

    Grille looks great, take a little extra time and cut the pony housing out with a dremel. Makes the billet fit close and you cant see the outline. Its also alot easier to install if you take the factory grille off. I love it and it gets so many compliments

    Love the look

    Very easy to instail. Youll have to grind off some of the mount for you pony emblem. Do a little at a time to ensure a snug fit. other than that with the right tools a revy easy instail. Also keep in mind that the rest of the pony mount will show threw the grill so think about trying to paint it blacl or even grey for a phantom look

    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.

    Amazing grille if you install it right..

    First off you must get this grille when the upper-lower combo is on sale. The lower grille completes the look.. I wanted something a bit different than all the other modded GTs in my area that were all rocking the Elanor. So I used this black billet upper and lower grille combo along side with the Drake Tri-bar pony emblem on the driver side to replicate that awesome 69 GT look... There is not another GT around me with this clean and OEM type of look. I love it.. The only issue with this grille is that if you want it to really look good than you have to dremel/cut out a large part of the factory grille that you are bolting on to. Otherwise your middle pony emblem cutout will show through. Take the extra time to cut out the old grille so that it's just a shell to mount onto and it will be worth it.. Otherwise its a cheap bolt on.. Do it right and it will set you apart. The instructions included were wack but luckily there is not much to figure out. For the lower grille make sure to use the clips vertically otherwise it will pop out a bit. As always, props to AM for the prompt service with a good price. 100% satisfied as always..

    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.

    Nice grille

    Fitment was okay. Was much easier if you take off the pony emblem and grind down the emblem outline it fits better. Installation was pretty simple. Did it by myself but would have been much easier with another set of hand to hold the grilleb in place while you install the hardware.
