MCA grille

Just put this bad boy on and I love it. I like the retro look. Very old school and still aggressive. I replaced my pony package grille with this.

I work at a ford dealer and ordered it through them at employee price, which was still a lot. $300 each for top and bottom.

I had a guy in the body shop do it because I heard the clips were real easy to break if you don't know what you're doing. Took him about an hour.

Not from Ford, there are some aftermarkets that almost (sort of) match.

I think '13 is the first year they had matching upper and lower mca grilles.

Part of the reason I fell in love at first sight with my Mustang

It was on my MCA from the Factory.

I've been looking all over for a matching OEM MCA lower grille and I'm about 99% sure they don't make it for the 10-12'. The closets match we have is the multiple billet ones like AM sells.

I used krylon flat black, it said no primer required. I did six coats and it started chipping shortly after. I just plasti dipped a couple of days ago hope it lasts longer!

plasti dip will hold up better. yes better to remove to do...but its a pain. took me 3 hours to install the black version / california special grilles. so...while have bumper offf to do LED lighting...gonna pop out upper to replace with the roush grille for more airflow and will look better with the back lighting

I got mine brand new upper and lower for just a little less the price of just the upper. Guess I got a great deal. I took the pony off though
