Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at Modern Billet™s retro style upper and lower Billet grilles, fitting your 05-09 Mustang GT, available in your choice of either polished, or black. As you may have guessed from the name, Modern Billet™ is a company that specializes in making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang, using nothing but quality T6 Billet aluminum. These upper and lower grille options are a great way to change up the look of a front end, while keeping people guessing at the same time. The reason I say that is, because as you can see with this upper grille, it totally deletes both those telltale GT fog lights and that iconic running Pony emblem. Both grille options are constructed using 100% Billet aluminum, and as I mentioned earlier are available in 2 different finishes. We do have a polished option, or a slightly more stealthy gloss black finish shown installed on our 06 GT behind me. Even though we have the upper and lower grilles paired up in this video they are available separately, so for instance if you just wanted to go with the Billet upper grille, and leave the lower portion stock you totally could, however if you dig the look of both grilles together like we have installed on our 06 GT behind me, then you’ll actually save yourself a few bucks by purchasing both at the same time. If you love the retro styling a Billet grille offers but you really want to nail that retro look even more, then you might want to add the optional tri bar Pony emblem, available on a dropdown menu located on this product page. As for the install, we’re calling each grille about 30 minutes from start to finish, but your method will vary slightly depending on which grille you’re installing. For instance the upper grille is a complete replacement meaning you have to completely remove the factory grille first before getting started installing the new Billet grille. On the other hand that lower grille is an overlay meaning it simply attaches to the lower portion of your factory grille. So if you dig the retro look a Billet grille tends to offer, and you want to completely change up the look of your GT, then you have to check out one of these Billet grille options from Modern Billet™, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Review from Modern Billet Polished Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 GT)
Wanna spice up your stang?
If you have an 05-09 mustang and want to add that little something to give it that mean look, then the lower grille is an excellent easy to install must have to give your pony that flair it desires. the lower grille fits over the OEM honeycomb with minimal instillation.
I have a bad shoulder and was worried that I would have to get someone eles to install the grill, but it was so easy took me less than 20 min. I even installed some LED grill lamps to replace the fogs love the new look the grill gave my ride and can't wait to show it off @ the next car show!
love this grille to death, people ask me everyday if its a shelby or a roush, i love love love it, and the tribar pony emblem makes it that much more exotic, and retro, if you have a mustang, you owe it to your front end to have this grille, thanks AM
Review from Modern Billet Polished Retro Billet Grille - Upper (05-09 GT)
Nice looking grille, but a bit shiny for me. Super easy install. Instructions on the website were better than the printout it came with. The tribar pony emblem is not a good install. I still haven't figured out something that isn't going to let it fall off.
Review from Modern Billet Polished Billet Grille - Lower (05-09 GT)
It was pretty easy to install. Like some people have said the bottom bolts were nearly too short but with a little effort I got them to fit. It fits very nicely and looks amazing. It doesn't look like a cheap bolt-on part. It looks very nice.
Installation is really easy and the upper Grille fits great.
Unfortunately the lower grille doesn't fit at all, the angles are not the same as on the original bumper and mounting the grille is quite a mess
The grille itself is nice quality and changes the front end look dramatically. As stated by others the hardware given for installation is horrid. Had to buy all new screws and clips.
Even worse was the set up for the pony emblem. I used their hardware again and when trying to get it tight the emblem broke. I'm trying to use a metal glue but may have to get a new one.
Overall a great change for the car, good quality on the upper and lower grille, happy the way it looks.
Love this grill. I personally don't care for chrome and prefer a satin finish. I took a red scuff pad to the piece and removed the chrome finish revealing the bare aluminum. Clear coated the pieces again to reveal a nice satin finish.
Fit is great. I would have given the fit 5 stars if it weren't for my predisposition against the type of nuts that come with this part. I replaced all screws and nuts with torx head and nylon inserted nuts. Much tighter fit this way.
Otherwise this is a great product that I would highly recommend to anyone.
Great shipping and customer service from AM as usual.
