I am still considering changing the grill, so I photoshopped a few pics tonight (and figured I'd toss them up here for you folks to see).

Please excuse the grainy look, I accidentally saved them in GIF the first time. :smile:

I also took the GT emblem off the side of the one shot to see what it would look like.

Well, I took the pony out so that it would look more like the '68. :smile:

I'm not sure what I want to do with her, but I'm just thinking at this point. :smile:

If your going for the 68 look take the scoop off and maybe put on an after market similar to the 68. That would be cool!

Are the GT emblems on with tape or are there holes in the fender? I considered removing everything, FORD and all except the BULLITT.

I wondered why they didn't paint the horse black or remove it like the '68. Gotta have that pony I guess.

Mike,

Those look sweet, anyway you could do a honeycomb blackout? That's what I'm thinking about, close to the original and the new one....

Thanks!

i think it will work well with the car.

sigh,.............i don't want to agree with 1Nasty ( EVER!!!- LOL) but i also think the pony should be chrome or "blacked out", not body color.
sorry, but it's just my opinion but it's your car, do what you think is best!!!

maybe you guys are right, i am coming from a probe gt. (considered an import) I still am not used to the muscle car "rules, and styles." However i understand where you are comming from with your opinions. i actually like it with nothing, or the floating pony.

Blu,

The bottom line is to do what makes you happy, who cares what others think!

that is also very true, it really depends on how different i want my bull to look than others. these days the term "rice" is sooooo broad, everthing can fit into that catagory if you look at it in the right light.

I learned along time ago that "oppinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one."

It's about $120 for the upper grill alone. I called Grillcraft direct and they said they should be shipping tomorrow....

Don't know about the installation yet, got to get it first!

I painted my pony black a few days ago and it looks great like that. I also painted my GT emblems black as well. I really didn't care for that look at first, but it only took a few days to grow on me and now I wouldn't have it any other way.

Of those pics I like the plain look better as well and a floating pony would look great. Onother look would be no grill at all! When you guys change your grills shut the hood and take a couple of pictures with no grill so we can see what that would look like.

So can the pony be removed without permanent damage to it or the grill? I like the black pony idea, but I would want to buy one, paint it black, and put it in with the original in a baggy somewhere...

Painted my running horse gloss black. You can still see it but it's subdued. I'll take a picture of it this weekend and post it for you. I have had a lot of people say they like it better this way, and I do for sure.
