    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™.

    Would this grille fit over the pony package grille?

    Will this cover up the fog lights?

    James

    • If your V6 Mustang has fog-lights, this grille will sit in front of them and cover them.

    I love this look but I have a couple concerns. First, will this overlay restrict the air flow to the radiator? Second, can you see the stock grill through the overlay?

    TonyC

    • The Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille will not restrict any airflow. The designed of the Grille will allow air to flow freely. You should not be able to see the stock grille through this overlay.

    On install of the Billet Grill "cover" do you need to remove Silver Pony Emblem for fitment or can I just paint it black? and leave behind Billet Grill?

    LittleBling

    • The Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille is a grille overlay meaning that it is put over top of your factory upper grille. Additionally, it deletes the factory pony emblem/badge when installed for proper fitment.

    08 V6 with Pony Package Is the only reason the grilles for the V6 do not fit the pony package is because of the lights on the grill? My 08 has the orgininal V6 grill. So will these grills fit then?

    JoeJo84

    • No, the hardware provided with the product is not what is needed. The screws should be longer and the bracket should be flat. You can easily go to a hardware store and purchase these items and you should be ready to roll!!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Great grill

      I installed this upper and lower bulit grill on my wifes 07 v6 with pony package. I had to remove the chrome peaces off the stock grill. The bottom grill was the pain to atach to where it was tight. In the end great product looks great.

      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.
