Grille?

As most of you know I don't have a Mustang yet but am hoping to get one in early August, I have been putting together a list and i figured my parents aren't going to let me do much with performance so i'm going to stick with looks for now. I'm looking for a cool grille but i can't seem to find the right one.
I like this one:
Black Retro Mustang Billet Grille (05-09 GT) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

But I want it with cutouts in the center for fogs... Do you guys (and gals) know of any grilles like this one with the fog cutouts? Or if it is possible to get them cut afterwards?
I'm not rushed with anything obviously cause it will be about 2 months before i get the Mustang.

Oh, and I know that grille i said is for a GT... I plan on getting a new front bumper cover (I like cool body work)

Don't make it rice with "cool body work"
And I don't like the dual figs looks like bug eyes.
The first thin I would do is a rear fascia and dual exhaust(for sound not "performance ")

Re: Grille?

The first thing i planned to do was exhaust anyway, i was going to do the cutouts like a lot of people do for their exhaust... And no i wasn't going to make it look ricey lol, i know how not to, i think everything over way too much when it comes to cars so i know it will be exactly perfect when it happens. And i get what you say about the center fogs, it depends on what else the person has going on with the car, if they do it right then it looks nice imo.
I am still undecided about getting either center fogs or the other style fogs (don't know the name for the regular style), i'l see which one fits better with everything else that is going to be going on.

Black would be fore blacking out
Red would be best for black accents

Re: Grille?

Yea i really like the horizontal bars for the grille, it will probably be a while before i get it though cause i need to get the body work first since it is meant for a GT

Don't ask me, it's his car. I never understood.
I like everything about his car, but the emblems.
His dream car is a GT500 so that's y I guess?

+1 on ricer.
Dual fog lights I do like but as close to stock as you can get. The extra lights brightening up the road directly in front is a plus for a half blind guy like me. The black abs billet look does appeal to me as well as i have a black mustang. They are functional and look good, BUT do not get ZR Racing front grill like I did. It was only 80 bucks for a pop in factory replacement but the problem is after a year in my car, the fog lights have slightly burned and distorted by the reflectors. Grill itself I love but the fog lights leave much to be desired over time.
I already have true dual exhaust and cutout looks perfect if done right.

Most of the grills I found were overlays and you could still see the stock grill which was why I went with it. It did fit great and looks like the GT but like I said, the one piece lights suck and discolor.
I am looking for another alternative at the moment.
