Review & Installation Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out a couple of retro style upper and lower delete Billet grilles, available for your 2005-2009 V6 Mustang. Modern Billet™ is no doubt one of the leaders in producing a wide variety of styling accessories for your Mustang, using nothing but 100% Billet aluminum. These grilles from Modern Billet™ are unique in the fact that they delete the factory running Pony emblem from the upper grille, making for a much cleaner look. As for your color options we’re looking at a slightly more edgy black option shown in front of me, or a more tradition polished option shown back there on our V6. Even though we do have the upper and lower grilles paired up for this video they are available separately, so for instance if you just want to go with that upper grille and leave the lower portion stock you totally could, however if you dig the look of the grilles working together for you like we have installed on our V6, you’ll actually save yourself a few bucks in the process if you purchase both at the same time. Since both upper and lower grilles are overlays you’ll just simply need to remove the factory running Pony emblem from the upper grille first before getting started with the install. Once that’s out of the way getting each grille installed should only take you about 30 minutes from start to finish. So if you’re looking for an easy and relatively inexpensive way to complete change up the look of your ride, then you might want to give you’re your V6 the Billet treatment courtesy of one of these options from Modern Billet™.

Blacked Out Upper Grille. Give your S197 V6 Mustang a new twist with this Black Overlay Grille from Modern Billet. Featuring (15) horizontal aluminum bars, this retro grille is an one-piece design that eliminates the factory Pony emblem and significantly enhances your front end. This black upper grille is designed as an overlay that simply attaches over your stock 2005-2009 Mustang upper grille.

Matching Lower Grille. The optional Black Lower Billet Grille is the perfect complement to the Upper Retro Billet Grille, giving your V6 a complete appearance upgrade. Featuring a 7-bar design, the lower grille is a solid one-piece overlay that will easily attach in the factory lower grille opening.

Quality Construction. Designed with the original OEM CAD data from Ford to ensure a perfect fit, both the Upper and Lower Billet Grilles are constructed from strong, yet lightweight billet aluminum. Completed in a durable semi-gloss black powdercoated finish, these grilles offer an aggressive appearance and superior corrosion resistance.

Application. These Modern Billet Black Pony Delete Billet Grilles are specifically designed to fit the 2005-2009 V6 Mustangs, excluding Pony Package. The Upper and Lower Grilles are available separately or together as a Combo Kit. Please select from the ordering options above.

I fit this over my 2007 pony package grille with relative ease. It really gives the car a commanding look and the fogs behind it look awesome.

will this overlay fit over a pony package grille? i just ordered this grille not know its was only an overlay and im not sure it will work

  • You need something to bolt the overlay to. You may Ben able to make some brackets out of steel stock.

black billet grille i ordered the black billet grille not knowing it was only an overlay. i have the stock pony package grille already and would like to know if the overlay will still work. Also is it possible to just pop of the chrome around the fog lights and horse so the overlay will be nice and flush with the grille.

mrweir

  • this grill will not fit with the pony package grill, you would need to get a stock V6 grill without the fog lights

No Lower Grille Right now I have nothing in the lower grille, just an empty space. Can I install this lower grill or do i need a grille there to attach it too?

oldfool

  • This is an overlay so you will actually need the lower grille in order to attach this billet grille. We do carry the replacement lower grille that you'd need, which I've attached below for you!

Would this grill go around the fog light grill to hide them behind? Also if I had the v6, gt style fog lights the big ones would it work on that way?

  • It depends on how far your fogs stick out. I installed the grille over the stock pony and it worked fine. Good luck!

Can I put the Raxiom Smoked Fog Lights - CCFL Halo (05-09 GT) on this grill?

  • I would say no. The grille fills in the opening between the plastic grille and the bumper, leaving no excess space.

    Worth the trouble putting it in.

    This front grille looks a lot meaner than the stock honeycomb design. My mustang had the chrome pony emblem with the chrome fog lights, so I took those out to make the front fully blacked out. The one thing I do not understand is the hardware, what a joke that it. Whatever hardware it came with did not fit even closely. The instructions say you should have J-hooks but the top grille came with 4 C-hooks that don't help. 2 managed to fit on the bottom part of the grille, but on the top I had to find my own brackets to fit in on there. As for the bottom grille, I am not sure if the premium pony packages come with a different lower grille than others, so my lower grille did not fit right, and none of the hardware included fit. So, 4 big black zip ties and 5 minutes later the lower grille was on. Overall this grille looks awesome, just the hardware it comes with is a complete joke. Be prepared to go to your local hardware store.

    Nice look, missing hardware

    As noted in other reviews, this overlay has a very nice appearance, quickly giving you that intimidating look! Its worth noting that the hardware is CORRECT, but missing nuts. Make sure you use longer screws on the bottom and shorter ones on the top! Go to any home improvement store and pick up a pack of 8-32x2 machine screws with nuts. You will use only the nuts so save screws for some other project. I also bought # 8 lock washers to go behind the nuts. Overall easy install. Keep in mind this is an OVERLAY, not a full replacement grille!

    Great Grill !

    This is an awesome grill that is a must have for any V6 owner. However there where some problems with the hardware it came with. The screws weren't long enough to fit threw the grill. In fact, none of them were. so i brought them to Lowes and got the same sizes except a half inch longer. After buying longer screws the install ran like clockwork. However it would have been smoother if the right equipment was included. Other than that its a sexy grill that gives a mean appearance and I'm happy with my purchase. NOTE: when installing the bottom grill a second pare of hands is a must ! makes it 10x easier. THANKS AM !

    Looks great but not a perfect fit to bumper.

    Was relatively easy to install. The top went in flawlessly but the bottom took some force and the screws ended up being visible. But overall you cannot notice anything wrong with it unless you are up close. For the price its definitely worth it.

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 V6)

    Lower Billet Grille

    Very good product from American Muscle, It's a little bit of a tight fight under the fender however my father and I did it on our driveway without jacking the car up. Looks very mean. P.S you get water spots on the lower and upper part of the grille, I clean it using a cheap spray wax just to keep it black and glossy.

    Good Look Bad Fit

    Found instructions vague and not helpful. Seemed to be hard with bumped on to install lower grille as visibility and hand reach was an issue. Upper Grille was a breeze and was on in less than a half hour but this one took time and the fitment is sub par.

    Poor paint

    The look of this grille is nice and I cannot wait to install it on my Mustang. Though the first grille had an unpainted side to one of the upright pieces so I had to get a new one sent out. When I received the new one the painting on that one was actually worse than the first one, going to call and try again because I really want to install this as it is going to add so much to the front.

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 V6)

    Excellent Retro Look!

    The lower grille was actually purchased as a combo with the upper retro billet grille (black). Great quality product and amazing retro look for your S197. All install parts were included as described. Both the upper and lower grille installed easily with basic hand tools. (I did have to remove the running pony emblem to get an exact fit for the upper grille.) While the upper grill has a very snug fit, the lower grill took a little more work. The metal is very good quality and has shown no sign of rust, as the car sits outside and has sat through snow and rain. The lower grill does not quite fit flush inside the opening and may need to be bent into place. Overall this is minor adjustment, and I simply left the grill as is since it only had a slight overhang from the top. Again, if you are going for a retro look or one that resembles the shelby, this is a great product.

    retro black billet grilles

    Looks sharp, no doubt, and am glad to have these. Upper, not too difficult, the bottom, tough. Mainly because the hardware is microscopic. And you will need two extra hands for the lower grill for sure. The upper grilll I had to redrill the two outer holes, as the bolt wouldn't go through due to the angle, but no biggie. Just had to fabricate a little. Really changed the front end look. And I like it. Thanks AM.

    Easy Install

    I ordered the upper and lower grill combo kit. I also ordered the tri-bar pony emblem for an additional $30. The pony emblem wasn't in the box when i opened it. That sucked, but everything else looked great. You can still see a little bit of the honeycomb stock grille behind the overlay so i would recommend painting the stock grille black before installing the new one.
