Grille FAQs Answers
Most commonly, Ford Excursion Grilles are made from aluminum. Occasionally, they are made from a mixture of aluminum and stainless steel, or 100% stainless steel. Some are also crafted from chrome-plated or painted ABS plastic, an affordable, corrosion-free option.

No, Ford Mustang Grills will not reduce air flow or cause overheating. Grille manufacturers know how important air flow is to keeping your engine running safe and cool, and they design their grilles to maintain that flow.

The answer to this question depends on what kind of grille you purchase. If you buy a bolt-over grille, then installation is easy and shouldn't take long at all. These kinds of Ford Fusion Grills, as you might have guessed, feature mounting hardware that simply bolts over your factory grille. The process takes 20 to 30 minutes and will require no cutting or drilling. A replacement billet grille, on the other hand, will require some work. Installing one of these grilles involves completely taking out the factory grill, which requires a bit more time, effort, and tools to do properly. The look is cleaner and more integrated, and achieving it may require some cutting and drilling. The entire process of installing replacement Pontiac GTO Grilles will probably take over an hour, but it shouldn't take an entire day.

Before doing so, please be sure to read the manufacturer's instructions to check for any solvents or polishes that cannot be used on a particular grille.
For these purposes, the dictionary's second definition works best, as it is related to metallurgy. In this context, a billet is "a comparatively narrow, generally square bar of steel."
