My new Saleen grille.

I purchased a Foglight Hide Billet Grille from Stage 3 Motorsport. It took a month to get and Stage 3 has wonderful customer service, but the grille was a piece of crap. The instructions are these awful photocopied things and it requires a whole lot of bending and twisting to get the fog lights mounted. Well, the. The grille wouldn't fit right in the stock grille surround and I ended up breaking the surround during mounting.
Well, that was enough of that. I went right home and ordered the Saleen grille from Late Model Restoration. American Muscle stopped selling them, otherwise I would have gone through them. This grille is beautiful and I still have the fog lights hidden behind it. It was also soooo easy to install.

I will throw out props to my boys over at Fender Mender in Myrtle Beach for the use of their facility, tools and expertise. They helped me out as a favor and only asked me to pay for some push pins.

The Fog Light Hide Grille that I originally bought came with brackets that mount them behind the grille. It's a PITA lol.

I never took pics during installation. However, I'm probably going to do an HID upgrade on my fogs. I tinted them way too dark and now I need brighter lights. When that happens, I'll snap some shots.

It doesn't. I tinted my fog light lenses super dark and that's what's affecting the light output. Other than that, it looks awesome shining through the grille.

Looks great. I really wish they would start making them for the 13-14s. Id buy one in a heartbeat.

You really would expect these to be made of a more sturdy material, but they're pretty flimsy.

I can see why you'd say that they're flimsy, but it seems to me that they're sturdy but not rigid. The polyurethane is pretty solid, though. It gives but I can tell you that they can take a beating, we ran into a couple of complications during install due to rushing and clumsiness. It just kept smiling, though. I believe that these are built to last, but really only time will tell.
