While it would be in my best interest to just save my money for a new and more powerful pony, I still find myself searching Craigslist every night. I love the look of GT fog lights and is my major gripe about why I don't like the look of the front of my v6. So I search constantly for a GT front conversion as well as a new rear bumper as mine has a pretty deep scratch that I don't believe is repairable.
I got to thinking that instead of doing a GT front conversion just for fog lights, why not just try to find a nice grille replacement? This lead me to one from AM that I had seen previously here
While I like the idea, I hate the idea of it still being chrome as I have black as my secondary color. So I figure I will be painting my calipers red and my wheels black soon anyway, and wondered how hard this would be to paint a flat black. I don't have much experience with painting myself yet, and I would be weary to paint being able to stick. It has very thin bars and the reviews say it is made of plastic, so I hate the idea of snapping something while I attempt to sand it.
The other thing I dislike about it is that it doesn't come with the option to add a Mustang emblem. I proudly have one tattooed on my chest, so the thought of not having one on the car saddens me. I guess I could buy a smaller vintage emblem and attach it with zip-ties or something, but the thinness of the bars would make me worry about it either sliding or getting snapped off as I've said before.
I really would appreciate any advice at all that can be given. And with it being 2am here, this probably isn't the most coherent thing I have every written, so I apologize if it seems like I am just rambling.
