Thanks for the Pics. I'm looking for a new front grille for my GT. I like the off-center tri-bar pony, but I think I want the fog lights in the standard location. I just can't seem to find just the right grille.

just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

Looks nice. Have any pics from a little farther away?
It also looks like theres more opening in the grill for more air. Wondering how that effects hood flapping.

NOT hard i did it in 25 min but i was being careful the tab
look weak on the bumper but they are not.. the flex easy

and the hardest part is get the bottom off. i use to long
flat head screwdriver one to hold tap back and other as
a pry bar.. work great..
it fall in to place the only thing is hooking up the light do that be
for you put the grille in it hard to get at the light bulbs to plug them
in and if you have to change them you have to remove the grille
not all the way but up to clips and pull forward to get at it..

I have actually heard from a few people who installed less restrictive grills than the stock one actually see an increase in engine temps. Although the stock grill may seem restrictive it actually keeps the air directed right through the radiator, whereas a more open grill may let a lot of that air slip throughout the engine compartment.

FWIW.

air intake.
