Eleanor Grille, OEM Headlights & Tinted Fogs
Needed new headlights since mine were cracked and dingy so I decided to give the front end of a new look while I had the car apart and the bumper cover off. Bought the Eleanor grille and SHR honey comb lower grille inserts, yellow fog light tint and OEM style headlights from AM.
The quality of all the parts seems to be very good. OEM headlights fit perfectly where the stockers had been. All the holes lined up and install was easy.
SHR lower grille inserts snapped in place in five minutes. Don't notice much of a difference because the license plate holder blocks some of the grille area but still a nice touch for the car shows.
The stock grille was a bit loose and came right out of it's housing with no issues. I removed the stock fog lights and cleaned up the lenses with some lens cleaner then installed them in the new Eleanor style grille. The stock fogs fit the Eleanor grille perfectly and were bolted back in place in ten minutes.
Used a soapy solution of water and a heat gun to apply the yellow film to my fog light lenses. Love the way the yellow tint makes the fogs stand out against the black grille. This was my first time applying tint film. A little tricky at first but the soapy water and heat gun and plastic applicator took out the bubbles and I was pleasantly surprised by the finished product. I think new yellow fog lights were around $150 and the tint was $30 for the pair.
The Eleanor grille snapped into place with a bit of elbow grease and as expected was a much snugger fit than the stock grille which had loosened up a bit over time. I've always been partial to the Eleanor grille on Mustangs with LeMans stripes. The fogs fall right in the center of the stripes so it just looks right.
Once again very pleased with American Muscle and the fit and finish of all the parts. It's always nice when the new parts fit perfectly into the stock set up without having to drill new holes or come up with clever ways to install stuff that should just fit.
Here are a couple of pics of the car with its new more aggressive look.....
