Unlike the GT, the Boss grille (2012 version, anyway) is a single molded piece. I bought one on eBay, with the intent of opening up the blanked-off dummy openings to accept the stock GT fogs. Unfortunately the dummy openings are deeper, more tapered, and smaller in diameter than the real openings on a GT. The Boss grille also lacks the fog light mounting tabs on its back side that the GT grille has.

So, what I presumed would be a simple exercise is proving more difficult than anticipated. I just haven't had time to mess with it and try to figure out how to get it done.
