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

Front end refresh
The grilles look great and really improve the look of the front end of the car. Installation is pretty straightforward and not too difficult. Have a Dremel handy to cut out the mustang part of the stock grille.Helpful (1)

I received the grille in about 4 days, very fast, and I’ve installed it. It looks amazing and it’s a great deal for the price. The only thing that I don’t like is that I can see the Pony emblem from the old grille even after taking the emblem off. Not too bad because it’ll take 10 mins or less to cut out the old grille but if it was a remove/replace grille it would be better and cleaner. All in all I would recommend buying this grille if you don’t mind cutting your old one.Helpful (1)

I was surprised by the quality of this grille. It exceeded my expectations. The fabrication and powder coating are top notch. The fit was perfect. You do have to trim back the pony emblem area to allow the grille to fit flush. I recommend a dremel type rotory tool with a small cutoff wheel.Helpful (4)

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)

If you want to add a modern twist to a classic look then look no further. This all black billet grille adds some serious attitude to the front end of your pony. Installation was a breeze. Just me and my wife took about 45 minutes to secure these awesome grille overlays.Helpful (5)

When I purchased the grill combination I was under the impression that it was a replacement grill and not a bolt on to the original. If you couldn’t see the original behind it I might have liked the grill better. It should be more clear that it is a bolt on over the original grill.Helpful (10)

Was such a great upgrade to my car really gave it that aggressive look.Helpful (5)
why couldn't it have been just a replacement.. instead of having to cut
Does the pony logo come with the grill?
The Tri-Bar Pony emblem is not included and is an optional add-on.
Lost a few pieces of the mounting hardware. What are the sizes and pieces I need to get new ones.
Please reach out directly to our customer service department as we would be glad to help source the hardware for this setup if possible!
So I bought this grille and bought new fog lights but it didn’t come with the fog light trim. Where can I buy that?
Unfortunately, we do not carry the fog light brackets but you may be able to source them directly from Ford.
Will this grille fit on my 2005 v6?? I can't find any grilles that I like for it!!
Unfortunately the Modern Billet Black Pony Delete Billet Grille is only intended for the 05-09 Mustang GT and will not properly fit on your Mustang GT doe to different fitment.
Since the Modern Billet Black Pony Delete Billet Grille is a grille overlay, it will not work if your factory grille is missing.
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.
The hood that is used in the video of the Modern Billet Black Pony Delete Billet Grille (05-09 GT) is the Cervini's Cobra R Hood - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6) item #72083 (www.americanmuscle.com/cervinis-cobrar-hood-0509.html).
Hi, This Modern Billet Black Pony Delete Billet Grille will work with the Roush front fascia because the roush fascia has the same grille mount locations as the GT bumper
The lower part of the Modern Billet Black Pony Delete Billet Grille (05-09 GT) will not fit with the Roush Body Kit - Unpainted (05-09 GT) item #69005 (www.americanmuscle.com/roush-2005-gt-body-kit.html) as the lower grille opening is shorter and longer.
It doesn't matter the location on the grill it is totally your preference and the look you are trying to go for.
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.
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.
