- How to Install a Polished Billet Grille on your 2005-2009 Mustang GT
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.

Billet upper and lower grill
Easy install, however the lower grill sticks out somewhat on both corners. Mounting hardware is kinda cheaply made. Other than that, totally satisfied with the look!Helpful (2)

Bringing Me Back
I have been removing the front grill emblem and GT fog lights on all my Mustangs since 1974. I blacked out behind the grill on my 2006 with this install. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks AMHelpful (4)

Black billet grille
This grille is great. It really improved the look of the vehicle. It took about 25 minutes to install because I put it on wrong and had to do it again. Install time would only have been 5 or ten minutes otherwise. Very happy with it.Helpful (6)

Great looks tight fit
Looks great once you get it on your car but the fit was a nightmare at times. The screws they come with are kinda cheap (at least mine were) and didnt go all the way through so ended up tie rapping into place, but in the end stick with it take your time and you should be fine.Helpful (5)
Is it possible to install this as a replacement for the OE grille, instead of laying it on top of the OE grille?
There are no brackets on the sides of this grille for it to properly mount to the bumper. You would have to make a custom bracket in order for this grille to fit properly without the OE grille in place.
Will this fit the Roush Front Fascia bumper on my 2006 v6 mustang
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.
California Special Will this grill kit work with the California Special GT Front Bumper Cover - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6)?
Yes it will!
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.
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!
fog light harness I have a 2007 Mustang with the "Pony Pkg"; is the fog light harness compatible with the GT fog lights?
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.
