I'm thinking about getting this for my Mustang but am kind of on the fence about it. If I do, I'll probably put the tri-bar logo off to the side on it.

Not a fan. Looks like it belongs on a truck, not a 'stang.

I have, many times. I'm ok with a Billet grille and it has to be black, but I'd like to do something different and I would like to find a replacement grill rather than an overlay. Billet grilles are nice, but everyone does one.

I hear you. I was looking for the exact same thing you are a while back and just couldn't find anything. The problem I had with the one you posted was the mesh was too small. If it had been diamond shaped mesh with larger openings and foglights I would have been all over it. Unfortunately, all I could find were overlays. I'm not a fan of the horizontal bars either (I had one and took it off) because it didn't match the diamond shapes on the lower grille. I'm picky like that, but to each their own.

Love the classic looks and color of your car. Not a big fan of the grille.

Thanks, guys. I still have a bit before I have to commit, but honestly I like the idea if I can remove their logo and put a tri-bar emblem on it. I am getting the painted retro headlights from AM and thinking about leaving the bottom open. We''ll see. I've blown $150 on worse ideas than this.

I think you could do much better. Especially for that price.
