Thanks man. The lower grille took some trouble shooting but after leaving it alone for the night and coming back to it today I was able to get that figured out. The rest of it was pretty easy especially the fog light kit.

I had a ton of fun with my roush lower grille delete. It was a pain in the butt measuring the area to cut as well as drilling some holes due to some space issues with the drill.

What made the cervinis difficult?

Upon the first install of it it looked like it was bowing down. I first thought maybe the mold was off. After tinkering with it I realized the mesh grill once tightened down was causing the area to flex. Took me about 40 minutes to get the mesh figured out to where it would not affect the grille. After that it fit like a charm. For the most part all of the parts were fairly simple to install. It was separating the factory grille that was the hardest part. Also it was all done without using a jack which would make the entire job a bit quicker.

Oh cool deal. Yeah I hear you on the car being on jacks. It's obviously doable but it's a million times easier when you can get under there to get the 13ish or so 7mm bolts out of that splash pan and disconnect your side markers and ambient air temp.

I have the same Cervini upper and Lower. Haven't installed it yet but did you take your bumper off?

Yes I did. For me it was very helpful taking the whole bumper off.

Cervini 500 Front End

Looks Good!
Thanks for Posting.
I have been looking for different Angles. Got my chin spoiler & Boss Diffusor last month, waiting for Down Time. Still thinking Sterling Gray on it & the diffuser.
Yacked with a guy at Gas Monkey Mustang Mania & he had done the diffuser (Blue),
& the radiator cover etc. He had Roush Spoiler Black.

Thanks I prefer the black to contrast the car color. Here's a couple more

I agree.. Keep it black for a contrast.. Thinking of doing the same on my silver 14' 5.0.. It will contrast even more

Cervinis kit

How was the install on the whole kit? Have the kit sitting in my living room looking to install tomorrow probably. I also have the ford oem GT/CS style fog lights. Are those the ones you used? Noticed you have them in your pics. How was that install? Your car look sweet btw. Thanks for posting the pics. I've been looking all night trying to find an install vid or even a forum with someone who did the kit instead of just the grilles and after forever I finally found this thread. Lol. Any install advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Vince

It's all pretty easy. I looked up a video I think on Cj pony parts on how to remove the bumper cover. Then once that was off I installed all the parts using the instructions they came with. The hardest part was getting the black panels out where the CS fog lights go. Those were a real pain in the but cause the clips were in really tight on mine. I got my fog light kit from starkey so it had the plug and play harnesses so I didn't have to splice anything. Also the mesh grille for the bottom grille may need some trimming and I had to play with it a bit so it wouldn't cause the bottom grille to deform at all. If you want pm me and I can explain better.

Are you going to leave or cut that fog light bracket that's sitting in the middle of the grill?

I am looking into remove the fog light brackets as well. At first I had no idea what they were for, so I decided to just follow the instructions. Since I have no plans of adding them in I think I'm going to remove them. Only problem is I don't have a garage....

Think the local Ford dealership would cut them out for me?

P.S.
Looks great! Definitely one of my favorite appearance mods so far, after the SHR louvers.

I left them with the thought of ever selling the car and letting it go back to stock but the more I see it the more I may reach up and Dremel all three of them out.

Starkey products is where I got the kit and harness. Install is very straight forward.
