Re: how would you do this

It would block most of the air flow over your radiator as well...not really a good idea.

Re: how would you do this

looks like crap in my opinion. the only change to your grille should be a grille delete.

Re: how would you do this

There is a hood made that basically covers the entire grille area like that, but it looks bad imo. Nothing just for the grille area similar to the FR500 was made.

I agree with tigerfan2771, the Mach grille delete 3 PIECE is the way to go.

Re: how would you do this

the easyest way to do that would be to cut the sides of the grill opening off the bumper so the bumper is flat across then close the hood and tape the grill sides to the hood and get them to stay there then fiberglass them onto the hood so that instead of the grill being attached to the bumper it is now attached to the hood the find some cardboard and cover it with mold release and then put it in between the grill pillers now on the hood to make the flat front like the mustang in the picture has and then fiberglass over that until it is all one peace then sand it and fill it to the desired look and re paint the hood and finish flattening the bumper with fiberglass and paint that to. its not a hard job at all i do mods like this to all kinds of cars its just time consuming i think it looks great and would be cool to do this to your mustang

if you deside to try this i would recomend getting a hood and the grill pillers at a junk yard then you can play with it when ever you feel like it and still have a nice looking car to drive while you are working on the hood fiberglass is easy to work with just take your time

Re: how would you do this

I would go with a much easier grille delete but it's your car.
