all i did was just tape around it, no more than 2-3 minutes tops to tape off lol. Then just spray away.

but if you insist and you have a 13-14 you'll have to remove the whole bumper cover in order to get to the back of the grille.


So... i'd say tape is your friend lol.

+1.

I'd leave it intact and just tape around it and trim with an exacto blade to get it nice then spray away

Use painters tape. And if u want to make tape all around the edges then like ^^^ said. Use a knife or somethin of that sort. But if u don't want to do that u can always peal it. It will cut itself at the edge where the horse goes in place. I did mine. Just try it out and if u don't like it just peal it! Lol it's very simple. I'm about to do stripes with plasti dip. But it's amazing how it works. Give it a try!

It will peel right off your grill. I just used scotch tape and newspaper to protect the paint on my hood and bumper

Looks pretty good -

And the Mustang doesn't have a "prancing horse" by the way. The prancing horse is the Ferrari horse symbol. Wouldn't want you to call it that around a Ferrari owner!
