    Hey, I was thinking about the same thing. I looked at American Muscle for grill replacements. Saw a grill fairly cheap. Its a billet grill, no horse. some how it fits or covers your original grill, but.... it sounded like to me the people who have installed them had to carefully cut the horse from the original grill. Sounded like alot of trouble to me. I think im just going to order a different grill without the horse. I thought about removing mine to, but im afraid of screwin the whole grill up. You may have a good idea about painting it with plasti-dip.

    Personally, I like the Mustang on the front.

    However, for the price of an aftermarket grille vs. a can of Plasti-Dip, the "spray" method looks pretty good.

    Plus with Plasti-Dip you can just peel it off.

    I like it! I've always been a bit partial to the clean look. :nice:

    lol... You posted on a Friday night, after work, during the summer, into a weekend... When people are driving what they've worked on all winter. :D

    yes, it does peel right off if you don't like it, Just make sure you tape good and use alot of newspaper, and spray side to side longer than your pony emblem-- CHOP

    I think I want to try doing the chrome trim, leaving just the pony on front and back.

    Like everybody doesn't know it's a Mustang Already, it's personal preference on the small things,it's not like I took the emblem off, just blacked it out-- CHOP

    Like I said before it's personal preferense on what YOU want on on YOUR Mustang. I mean every Mustang Shouldn't look like every other Mustang you see on the street, AND there are alot of Mustangs out there-- CHOP

    I wasn't knocking you for blacking yours out. Just saying you inspired me to try my own variation of it.
