So, Karen and I are not huge fans of the honeycomb pattern of the stock grille. I had changed it on my 05 some time back. And while we certainly do not want to upset the honeycomb fans and or purists, thought we might show you hw the Billet upper grille came out...Now the search for the appropriate lower grille begins.....

Let us know what you think....

dude. I always like your info. But you gotta learn to copy & paste links. Its a no brainer. Just going to the site means I have to dig. Don't have time to dig. Make it easy on us please. Thanx!

Thanks folks...appreciate it....

Yes, Billet grilles are available in black as well as chrome...

And I do agree with modding for yourself, but I also like to try and stay within the theme of the car, as much as possible....

Thanks again,
Mike and Karen

you know the address bar at the top of the brower? where it says "http://www.imboc.com/forums" etc?
go to the web page you want to share with us.
hover your mouse pointer over that web address in the address bar and left click it once and it will be selected (highlighted).
then hover your mouse pointer over this highlighted web address and right click once. a menu opens. choose 'copy' with a left mouse click and now its in your computer memory.
then come back to your new posting box at IMBOC.
hover your mouse pointer after the sentence you just typed, right click in this white posting box. a menu pops up again.
just choose 'paste' with a left mouse click and it is now pasted in your post.

Like this:

you can copy and paste anything throughout windows this way. give it a try.

just like I did with this:

Sorry but thats the best Ican do

I like the grill but the trim is a bit to bright for my taste....but it is your Bullitt and you can do whatever you like. Can you take a close up picture of where the grill & trim meet.

Personally, I think it looks better than the original. Bet it would also look great on the Black Bullitt.

Thanks. The trim ring is the trim off of the stock grille....So, maybe it just looks brighter due to the gloss of the Billet grille, as opposed to the textured honeycomb grille...??????

That is strange it looks much brighter.......I don't know. How difficult was the re & re of the grill and trim?

Well, the grille itself is a cakewalk. About five minutes. And the new grille was already inside a grille frame, so if it was just the grille swap, about 6 minutes.

The stock trim ring is held to the stock grille with 3M tape. It also has about 4 or 5 guidepins along the bottom only, but they are just guidepins. So I just pryed back the tip of the stock trim, and cut the 3M tape with an exacta knife, and followed around the perimeter of the stock grille.

I re-applied new 3M tape to the back of the trim ring, after removing the factory tape. I also broke off the guide pins, as they are unnecessary. (originally I thought the factory trim ring was actually aluminum, but alas, it is plastic...) I applied the trim ring to the billet grille, with the new 3M all around, and clamped it with a couple of C clamps for about 30 minutes or so...

Earlier, I had sprayed the air conditioner condensor and a few other silver blingy pieces in the grille opening, with flat black rust-oleum. What the factory honeycomb hid, the billet grille put out there for god and everyone to see....

All told, with painting and trim ring, I guess I was into this mod for about three or so hours....

Looks great Mike. :cool: :cool: I saw your picks over on TMS. Too late or I would have ordered one for Nats. I just spent about an hour cleaning my honeycomb today. I don't know why, I'll be cleaning again at Myrtle. Where did you say you got the grill???? Do they make a lower grill? I can't wait to get rid of the honeycomb. :mad:
Thanks a ton. Appreciate it. I found the grille on E Bay. Unfortunately, they do not carry a lower grille insert.....And plus one on the honeycomb cleaning....

Thx,
Mike

The trim ring sounds like a pita. I wonder if it can be ordered from ford. The grill looks so much more finished than the honeycomb. Nice work.

I like it. It does a better job of blacking out the grille than the honeycomb.
