Referring to previous posts and what you intend to do, don't chuck the original grill away. Keep it. Customised parts are not everyones cup of tea,

Be careful with the repo' grill because they are very fragile & can break very easily whilst fitting and they are moulded in matt black, whereas the original is a very dark grey-blackish colour, so the new grill won't match the upper small grill, the one with the Ford badge fitted to it.

Don't just buy the cheapest you see :blush: I've seen two qualities of these grill's...One is a no namer which is a terrible fit which flex's terrible as it's fitted and needs to be trimmed in places to fit and one a ford branded version is a excellent fit and pretty robust.

Take you're time removing the OE grill as it'll be in very tight and you really have to pull on it to remove the grill.

Hard to say really now! Best that you troll ebay and message the sellers of the grill/s and ask them what the quality is like! Flimsy ? Black ? or very dark grey ?

I got mine from Germany and was £25 including the postage, worst grill I've ever seen and the thing was covered in sharp plastic edges and the towing cover is a crap fit.

Told later that there is a better grill and sold by ford but not ford in the UK!

Ask a sellers few good questions...

This one is BLACK and cheap so best stay clear of it...
