I had to trim the header panel a little so the bolts I fastened the billet to the grill shell would fit...other than that everything fit great...crappy pic but all I did was drill 2 slots in the fiberglass so the bolts would slide past enough

Mine is flat black...it's just the plastic, but it looks great as far as I'm concerned..took it to get color matched, ford wanted $170 just to paint the outer shell, cheapest I found was $110...so it stays this way indefinitely

It really wasn't a big deal. Yours may be a little different. All I did was drill some short slots..completely hidden once either grill is installed..can't see it at all
