Matching lower grill for MCA package

Has anyone found a similar grill to match the upper grill? I've looked but I haven't found a match I like. I am a bit of a stickler on things like this so even if a grill is close, I'll still know it's not a match. As always, thanks for any replies. BTW it's a 2012. I'm sure that helps lol.

I bought a upper & lower CS grille from a dealer on eBay. Looks the same as a MCA to me but mine is black. Wonder if it's stainless under the black finish? Could the black finish be removed?

Thanks for the reply. I'll just have to keep searching. Why Ford didn't do both grills idk but it's out there. I just haven't found one to my liking.

I saw someone with the lower Billet grill from AM I do believe, does not match exactly but looked better than the lower black honeycomb. There is a guy that goes to out local cruise spot that cut an upper to fit that came out awesome, but expensive.
Ford finally put the matching lower in on the 13-14 MCoA

Ford did make a lower grille to match the upper MCA. I added both to mine. MCA is stainless, but similar to black plastic grille.

I have a black GT and wanted a little color contrast. It's a shame Ford didn't keep things a little more common, especially WRT front valence. I guess you can swap out entire front end, just take out a second mortgage. OP could try to paint the black grille with some dark stainless paint.

LOL... I have the stainless upper and lower on my '14 but with my Ruby Red car I was thinking of spraying them with black plasti-dip.

Thanks for the reply guys. Before I install something that doesn't match I'll install a matching upper and lower. Just hoped to get out a little cheaper by just getting a lower.

Ford is famous for upper and lower grilles not matching, the 2000-2003 Harley truck's didn't match, but the lower did match the 2003 STX upper.
