    Hey everyone,

    I've been enjoying my new SHO but desperately need to figure out my grille situation. I went to a local vinyl shop to get a quote on how much it would be for them to wrap in black. They didn't want to do it there because of the curves on the grille. I really like having the Ford badge still on the car, that's why I'm not a huge fan of the black T-rex grille available, but at the same time, that's currently the only option I have. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I came across this police interceptor grille, but I'm quite positive it's not going to fit on my 2010. My Taurus is black and I want to give it the black on black look. Thanks for any help guys (and gals!)

    Due to the design of the front bumper cover for 2013's +, the P.I. grilles will not work.

    At least not w/o extensive modification. I mean anything's possible, right? Time, Talent, and money.

    Anyhow, the upper/lower grille combo I run on mine, originated with Mobsteel located in MI. They have since however sold off the molds to Tommy Z Designs.

    I've heard both bad and good things about Tommy Z. So really up to you, to do your homework there.

    Umm, what else, oh yea, check out post #5 from user Jasonoftherugar in this thread here:

    His grille is cool, but again, it's for a 2013+. But since it is aftermarket, and custom, I see no reason why the vendor couldn't trim/shave down those horizontal slats for you, to accommodate your model year.

    Certainly worth a shot, yea? Reach out to him via PM perhaps and roll with it.

    Your profile pic looks like your grill is already black. What exactly are you trying to do? If you can't wrap it there is always dip or having it professionally painted.

    Profile pic is what I want to make my car look like! It's the Taurus SHO from Men in Black. The only pics I have of my Taurus I got last week do not look good as avatar pics due to their size lol

    Gotcha. There is always dip or getting it professionally painted. I have the MIB matchbox style SHO at home.
