Slowly putting the parts together for 'nameless' and now onto some outside bling, the question is to Billet Grille or not? Anyone got some pictures of 65/66 Mustang grilles to show off?

Regards

I don't mind the billet grilles... I have the same dilema... but I just love the corral on the 66's so I'm torn.

I think they need the tri bar pony emblem to make them look nice.

I haven't looked at how the corral attaches.... easily do-able?

There are 4 studs on back of coral, just get two plates, drill a hole at each and and put them on the inside of the grill and put your corral on.

Pony68 has his Corral on his billet grille, too much shiny for me.

OK, so an order for 1 Billet Grille from BLKPONY it is! I do think I will need to add either a central or offset, probably offset emblem to complete the look though.

a later mustang emblem looks good too and different. I agree it needs something on the grille

Nuts had a good go at it on Blue

FAO Nassi as well. Pretty sure he is running billet.

IMO i love the original styling. But - if you are going to resto mod it - put new colours and up to date rims - then definitely go billet.

Sort out colour first, then choose the grille to match.
