    Review & Install Video

    Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com. And I'm checking out a can't miss retro mod for the front end of your 2010 through 2012 GT. Thanks to Modern Billets, upper and lower billet grilles available in your choice of either black or polished. As you might have guessed from the name, Modern Billet is a company that specializes in designing and producing a wide variety of styling and accessories for your Mustang using nothing but 100% aircraft grade billet aluminum. Now this upper grille draws its inspiration from the legendary 1966 Shelby GT 350. Now some people may argue that this car kicked off the billet grille trend that would later find its way onto everything from passenger cars to pickup trucks, is now more popular than ever on today's rides. In addition, that modern billet upper grille also deletes the signature GT fog lights and the factory running pony emblem, making for a real clean look when installed. The lower grille, which we are also featuring in this video, filled the void nicely on the lower portion of the factory bumper, and really makes for a dramatic look when paired with that upper grill. Now even though we do have the upper and lower grille paired up for this video, they are available separately. So for instance, if you just wanted to go with that retro-themed upper grille and leave the lower portion stock, you totally could. However if you dig the look of both grilles working together for you, like we have installed in our GT behind me, then you'll actually save yourself a few bucks in the process if you purchase both at the same time. As for the install, well, the method will differ slightly depending on which grille you're installing. For instance, the lower grille is an overlay, meaning it's designed to install easily over the lower portion of your factory grille. On the other hand, that upper grille will require a little bit more work simply because you have to remove the factory grille first and then install the new billet piece in reverse order. Now even though there is a little bit more work involved, you should be able to get each grille installed in about 30 minutes apiece, from start to finish. Now if you really want to nail that early Shelby look then you should put some of that money you saved from the combo deal towards one of these Tri-Bar pony emblems. Set it off to the side, and you'll have the same look Shelby used back in '65 and '66. So if you want to give your late model S197 a look shared by some of the early Shelby Mustangs, then be sure to check out some of these grille options from Modern Billet, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Retro Upper grille. Add an aggressive edge to your Mustang with a retro style grille that features 7 horizontal bars. This 7 bar Retro Upper grille has a very unique design that deletes the factory fog lights. This Upper grille is a replacement grille that requires removing your factory grille.

    Matching Lower grille. The optional 8 bar Lower Billet grille is a perfect match to the Upper grille to complete the appearance of your Mustang. The Lower grille is an overlay that attaches 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 grilles are constructed from strong lightweight billet aluminum that is completed in a durable semi-gloss black powdercoated finish for an aggressive appearance and corrosion resistance.

    Application. These Modern Billet Black Retro Billet grilles are designed to fit the 2010-2012 GT Mustang. Does not fit the California Special Edition. The Upper and Lower grilles are available separately or together as a Combo Kit. Please select from the ordering options above.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Can my fog lights go behind the grille?

        • There is room to put fog lights behind this grille, however the Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille will eliminate any mounting points for the Fog lights. To make them work behind this grille you will have to make some modifications.

        Helpful (4)

        My Fog lights are also my daytime running lights, is there a way to to convert my turn signals or headlights into daytime running lights?

        Are more parts needed with this to delete gig lights? Like the look but want to make sure I order everything I need at once. Is it as simple as removing factory grille and unglugging fog lights and re installing this one?

        • Nothing else would be needed, it is indeed as simple as you presented here yourself. We have the installation guide on the product page here, I would suggest to look into that to see what kind of installation you will be getting yourself into.

        Just bought the upper grill w/ pony emblem. I seen a few photos with the fog lights behind the grill? How can I achieve that? What else do I need to get?

        • The Modern Billet Black Retro Billet Grille is meant to delete the fog lights. If you would like to keep the fog lights in place behind this grille its a customer set up. There will be extra fabrications needed.

        My grille did not include those two long tabs on the bottom nor did it include the extra two acres and speed nuts. Have these been removed or something? The grill surround is very loose and floppy at the bottom .

            Look great but has terrible hardware

            The grille looks great and fits perfectly within the stock grille surround but the hardware included does not do the job. I used my own hardware and when the grille is put back into the bumper it feels loose, i needed to drill a hole into the bumper to make sure it was secured.

            Good Appearance for the price

            This looks very identical to the roush grille but at a much cheaper price. I like that it is made out of aluminum. Mounts on the grille are solid. I have no issues. Shop did an awesome install on the grille and my roush fascia

            Excellent product, everything came with it that was supposed to and fit like a glove. Trickiest part is learning where the clips are on your car as the directions were a bit awkward with the pictures. Other than that 5/5

            The install is incredibly easy. If you can't install this thing with minimal effort, you're an idiot. This thing looks amazing. Gives the car a sinister/aggressive look.

            Looks good, lacks mounting hardware!

            Product was delivered quickly and looks great on my car. My issue is that there is no mounting hardware included in the package and no instructions on how to secure the grille surround to the car once the ome grille is removed. I called customer service and no help there. Ended up using zip ties to secure which worked fine but the product should have better hardware for sure!

            The look is exactly as pictured. It is made well but not a super easy install. I attached my fog lights behind the grill so had to do some customizing but the instructions were only slightly helpful.

            Spend the extra money for a higher quality one

            I expected this to be a fairly easy install. But I was wrong the curve on the grille was not shaped even close to fitting . And the tabs welded in were way off ( I had to go to a hardware store to get the necessary screws) after I put it in and followed the instructions thoroughly there’s a huge gap in between my bumper and we’re the grille is at. Would not recommend anyone buying this I guess I just got a faulty piece
