    Review & Install Video

    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

    Classic Upper grille. Deletes those tell-tale factory fog lights on your 2005-2009 GT for a classic appearance with the Modern Billet Retro Upper grille. Featuring a 9-bar design, this polished upper grille is designed to fully replace your factory grille and complements the lines of your Mustang's front fascia perfectly. 

    Matching Lower grille. The optional Polished Lower Billet grille is the perfect complement to the Upper grille, giving your Mustang a complete appearance upgrade. Featuring a 8-bar design, the Lower grille is an overlay that will easily attach 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 Billet grilles are constructed from strong, yet lightweight billet aluminum and feature a brilliant highly polished finish for a classic appearance and superior corrosion resistance.

    Application. These Modern Billet Polished Retro 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 Mustangs.

    With this grille, are the fog lights mounted behind the grille? Or does it completely delete the fog lights?

    does it have to be a GT? i have a 2006 Mustang V6 but i really like this grille, will it work on the V6?

    gabe1013

    • This is specifically made for the GT, as it is slightly different than the V6. We do offer one for your V6 though in the same style. Check out the attached link below!

      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.

      SO EASY

      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

      Nice Grille

      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.

      lower billet grille

      very easy install,the hardest part was getting my G.T up on the ramps so I could get the splash pan off to hold the hook brackets in place so I could ajust and tighten screws.

      Great Product

      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.

      Great look, fitting is difficult

      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

      Totally Changes the look.

      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.

      Great Product

      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.
