Justin: The GT Style Grille here with built-in halo fog lights simultaneously combines both modern and retro vibes and is a great way for all '05 to '09 V6 owners to give their rides an affordable facelift. Now, this option will feature a retro-style horizontal ABS plastic grille, along with the twin fog lights included bulbs and, of course, those modern halos, all for the mid-$100 price point. So grilles like this, again, are really a great way to change up the entire attitude of your ride and is also, in this case, a very affordable way to do so. Now, I'll be completely honest here, guys, the factory V6 grille for the '05 to '09 car is not exactly very exciting, right? They missed out on the GT fog lights and it's just kind of boring, to say the least.Now, this option, on the other hand, really changes things up, and let's just first start off with the grille itself. Now, this option does ditch the factory bland honeycomb for a more retro-inspired horizontal design that to me, kind of gives off some of those classic or retro billet vibes. Now, the grille and the surround have been made from durable automotive grade ABS plastic and will be a complete replacement for your factory grille on your V6. But the main draw of this option will no doubt be the twin GT-inspired fog lights here that are also given the very cool CCFL halo treatment. Now, the GT fog lights to me just really help complete the front end of the early S197, but the fact that they also include the halos is certainly an added bonus, right? Now, these would look good on their own, of course, or if you wanted to pair them with a matching set of halo headlights, which, by the way, you can find plenty of here at americanmuscle.com.Now, another cool thing I do wanna point out here with this grille is that a lot of our customers have mentioned installing either a running pony emblem right in the center there or maybe going with a classic tri-bar pony offset a little bit to personalize the grille a little bit, maybe just make it a little bit more unique, and that's something you can certainly do on your own if you'd like. Just know those emblems are sold here separately. But speaking of our customers, guys, there is a number of customer-submitted images back on the product page. If you want to get a better idea of just how this grille might look with or without those emblems I just mentioned, or just want how it might look in general on your V6 at home, check out these customer images, read up on some customer reviews. That way, you get a good sense of what you're in for here with this option.Now, again, the grille does include brand new bulbs here with the GT Style fog lights, along with everything else needed for the install. They even kick in a pretty nice wiring harness here with a built-in relay and switch. So that should help you when it comes time to get this thing in place. Speaking of which, site is gonna call this soft three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, which I feel is a little bit on the strong side, but because you do have to remove the bumper and the grille along with some added wiring, you're gonna wanna leave yourself at least a couple of hours to knock this one out from start to finish. But to give you a better idea of just how this one will go down at home, here is an AM customer to walk you through it now.Male: All right, guys. So for this install, you're going to need a 10-millimeter wrench, some pliers, a pry tool, flathead screwdriver, and then if your car already has fog lights, you can use some 3M quick connects and some 1/4 ring terminals. All right, guys, in this instructional video, I'll be showing you how to install the GT Style grille with halo fog lights on the '05 to '09 V6 Mustang. So for the first step, you're just gonna want to open up your hood.Now, after opening up your hood, you're gonna wanna pop out all these six tabs with either the flathead screwdriver or the push tool remover. And for mine, I usually use both just because it makes it easier. Yeah. Some of these don't want to come out very well, and so you can use both normally, and you can get it out pretty easily. There's one mostly. There. Pop it all the way out. Then you can just toss those to the side. You don't need them till later. All right. So after you're done popping all of those out, you're gonna want to take off this panel. And some of them, if you don't take them out already they'll pop out at you. Then you can just set that aside as well.So after you've taken this panel off right here, you see these tabs down here. You're gonna have to push these out with the flathead screwdriver while also pushing on this retainer on the grille. I also like to use the end of my remover for the other part to get this out while using this. So you wanna dig this in here and then twist. You're not gonna break it. It's pretty flexible. Don't worry, and then push out until you've got it like this. So we can pull this out. Now, my grille, it's a bit old and my bumper is kind of torn up so I can pretty much just pull my grille out from there. But once you've got these tabs out on this side, this is pretty much just pull it out, and then you're gonna wanna get these tabs from the fog light connectors and pull them out on both sides. And as I said, my bumper is a little old. Some of the tabs are kind of missing, but if you have a newer bumper and all the tabs are there, you'd probably have to get the screwdriver over here and maybe even on the bottom to get these tabs off. I'll just show you some of these tabs right here.Now, after getting your old grille out, you wanna grab your new grille and kind of just set it where it's gonna go on the front grille. Now that we have it sitting here, we're gonna do some wiring. So with the ground, you see there's a 1/4 enclosure thing around these, and this is the ground, the black. We're gonna stick it right here with these two on this 10-millimeter bolt. So grab your 10-millimeter wrench and get this off. And then just to make it look nice, we can wrap this around and under here. Grab it on this other side if we can find. Here we go. All right. So now just stick this with the other two and then we can stick this bolt back in then use your 10-millimeter to get it back down. And now for the positive, we're gonna get these quick connects and we're gonna cut into the hot wire from the fog lights that are already here. So the white is what you wanna get into with these, and just wrap this around. Open it up first. Wrap this around, get it on there. And then with those pliers that I mentioned earlier, you don't wanna get those and pinch this down. Now, once you got those pliers, just pinch so that way it cuts into all of them, just splices the middle. Makes it way easier than having to actually cut or do all of that. Okay.So now that we've got that on there, just plug into the...right here until you hear a click, and there was that. And now we're gonna repeat the positive and negative on the other side. So on this right side, for the ground with the 1/4, there's not another, you know, section over here where there's a bunch of them, so we opted to use the radiator support. Again, it's a 10-millimeter, so just grab your wrench and then wrench it off either one. Doesn't really matter. It's a pretty long bolt but just get it all the way out. Once you've got that out you can route this under again just to make it look nice. And once you've found the end of that, pull it all the way through and then secure it with that bolt on here.Now, I advise to keep your key out of the ignition while you're doing this. Otherwise, whatever is connected on the other side is gonna start making some weird noises. Yeah. After you get this 1/4 in there, just tighten it back down on that radiator support. You're good for the ground here. Now let's do the positive. Get this wire in here. Again, it's the white wire. Once we've got that in, bring this around and then grab those pliers and just get this down on it. Now it should, you know, crimp together like this on its own, but if it doesn't, you know, just use your finger. It's pretty easy to get it down on there. But once you're done with the positive and negative on this side, clip it in till you hear it click. There's that click.All right. So since we're done wiring, we're gonna push the new grille into all the tabs on the sides. Get this in here on the right side. There's that. Now from over here to the left, push this in. And now make sure because here I got these wires. Since there's a bunch of the white wire, I got it stuck to here to where I can't push in one of the clips. Make sure you have all the wire out of the way. So after we've got this in, I'd recommend testing before we put that other cover back on. So I'm gonna do that real quick. It looks like the fog lights are working, so we can go ahead and start putting that other cover back on.Now, when we're putting this back on, make sure you get it over everything where it should be and then push it into the grille so that way it stays. As you see there the front lip is in the grille holding it there. Now, once we have this cover in here where it should be, we need to push back all those push tabs. And I broke one while I was taking them out, but you can get them for three or four bucks here in a local auto store. It's not that hard to obtain some new ones. So that's probably what I'll do. Now, some of these can be rare. Just get the flathead, the edge of it, and hammer it down in there. But after this, this is the end of it. You can close your hood, and then there's new fog lights.Justin: So if you are looking to give your V6 an affordable facelift, then be sure to check out the GT Style grille here with those halo fogs right here at americanmuscle.com.
