I know I looked at doing this a few months back. After much deliberation I just decieded to tape off the grill, add some paper to cover some more area, and then I plasti dipped the grill. I know theres a bunch of pins and clips that need to be removed and my hands were to big to fit in the little area that I had to work with.

I just did the upper grille to cover the chrome pieces. I did not plasti dip the lower grill at all. Honestly it's hard to tell the two apart as far as one being plasti dipped and the other not.

I wasn't able to do this on the V6 grille like they did on the GT. The spaces are different.. not sure how the MCA relates. It's not hard to remove the whole bumper plus it's a "safer" way to do it. Also if you get the CDC and have the V6 bumper you will have to modify it. You will have to cut two support (whatever they are) plastic pieces off the bumper. I found that if you didn't cut them off the CDC wouldn't clear to be snapped into the clips. I don't think it will be as easy to cut them off with the bumper still on ... Just my .02

I didn't want to deal with over-spray into the radiator so I took off my bumper.

I'd just pull the front bumper to be able to get to th back of the grille for easy removal. I have removed mine lots of times it takes 15 mins to pull off going slow. Or just yank it out like others have done . Not sure I would though .

No need to take the bumper off to remove the upper grille. It is held in with push clips and so all you need to do is tape off around the grille to protect the paint and pull straight out. That is how CDC did it when they did the promotional make over of my car in Mustang Alley during the Woodward Dream Cruise last August.




And yes, for the performance grille you have to cut the center section out

because the performance grille is completely open:


You can see the center is blocked off on the stock grille (at least for the MCA and I believe that the center horse on the stock grille also has the big block). You can also see the push pin type clips in this picture.
