1999-2004 Mustangs were cursed with an ugly honey-comb style factory grille. That all changed with the introduction of the 2003-04 Mach 1. These special edition Stangs featured a factory GT bumper with the addition of a chin spoiler and grille delete from the factory. These parts added an aggressive styling and in the case of the grille delete, even added some increased cooling performance! The Mach 1 grille delete and chin spoiler quickly became the must have parts for the all 99-04 Mustang GT and V6 models.

Our SVE grille delete is an improvement upon the Ford Mach 1 version. It simplifies the installation; making this the ultimate exterior mod for any New Edge Mustang! With the SVE version you do not have to attach the lower hardware, also known as pal nuts. It features a support lip that makes for a simple slide on installation. Follow along in the video to see just how easy it is to install one of our SVE grille deletes!

Mustang Grille Delete Installation

  1. Remove the 6 phillips-head pushpins from the factory grille. There are 4 located on the grille, and 2 on the bumper cover. You will use 2 of these to install the Mach 1 grille delete.
  2. Gently pry the grille forward and remove the 4, 7mm bolts at the bottom of the grille. This procedure may require removal of the head lights to gain access to the bolts. If so, the headlights remove by simply sliding out the 4 retaining clips and pulling the headlight forward.
  3. Remove the black backing that covers the headlight panel. This part fits behind the factory grille, and installs with push pins.
  4. Drill a 1/2” hole in the center of the grille backing to expose the pre-existing hole in the header panel that locates the grille pony.
  5. Reinstall the grille backing.
  6. Install the grille delete into the original grille mounting holes. Gently pull the bumper cover forward and install the 4 pal nuts provided with the kit.
  7. Install the grille pony with the 2 phillips-headed screws provided in the kit and re-install the 2 plastic push pins removed from the top of the bumper cover
