Boss grille lights

So if I get the boss grille, can one just fit the fogs in there as the boss patriot does? It's kinda my deciding factor wether or not to get the lower valence with or without the lights.

Yeah but the fogs have a plastic plate on them you have to cut or something. Not sure if it has the mounting points either. I don't own one since its so pricey at $302

Aren't those factory deletes? If so, they may just need removal with mounts in place.

I'm 99.9% sure that you would have to cut and make your own mount to this grill.

If you don't want to cut look into the 302r grill

They do just pop out

Ford made it easy to just pop them out when racing and the engine can get more air .
My friend Jack keeps his covers off and made screens to stop debrea from getting in on the track at high speeds. They also keep the bugs out of the engine bay.

He has a 2012 Boss 302 SCCA

Why not just replace the running horse emblem with the tri bar. That's basically all the boss is besides the fog deletes

Why not buy a stock GT grille and modify that.
That way if you mess up you can keep your old grille
Or if you succeed sell the old one

That is called "CUSTOMIZING"

CUSTOMIZING is when you do it your way and make it special.

I think most of us don't mind PEEING $$$$ UP A ROPE once in a while to customize our Mustangs to get them the way we want.

Like I always Say "LIKE IT---BUY IT---Install IT---HATE IT

Then take it back off and throw it on the pile of other stuff that did not look good until you can go to a swap meet and sell it for ten cents on the dollar to make more room in the garage for more stuff that didn't look good or work properly == ( The way you imagined it would)

I said it before and I'll say it again:

" White Lightning is my Hero as far as trial & error goes. He will just try it and most of the time his customizing works great. If it don't He does not give up. He is a True Customizing king and reminds me of myself at an early age.

Who else will break the ground?

Btw I looked into it, the 13 boss grille can support fogs. The 12 can not. The 302 can but its meant for airflow more than anything.

Yes, but you have to be crafty.
I planned on doing it, but it's not going to happen.
And you don't use the boss grille.


The real... boss 227

I did it. I can cover them up with the delete plates when I want but typically the halos my preference. The boss tribar is way cooler than the stock running pony. Here's a few pics:
