You could remove the grill to give yourself a little more space, but its usually unnecessary. The hardest part, getting all of that damn stubborn glue crap off. PITA

i have found it easier to take out the headlights and corners without the grill on not to mention it gives u extra room to undo the bulbs from the housing

I'm getting ready to do this with a few very light coats of translucent black paint. if it comes out the way I hope, it'll look like something Ford could've done from the factory.

its been done before
