Photobucket's been having issues on and off lately.  But it looks like the images have been moved or deleted.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

I know this is old, but I just discovered it lol. That's a sweet looking grill! I want to do that to my 13, but I have to see if I can pull it off without removing the bumper. Very nice work

I know the grill surround comes out easily without bumper removal, but the actual grill requires some work to remove, I had my surround off and was going to pull the grill as well, but couldn't see a way to do it without a bumper removal.

I guess with any venture would simply avoid Tommy Z Grilles as many have had bad experience to say the least. Z

That's a shame that people had so much trouble with him. I'd rather have the satisfaction of ordering the materials and making it myself, anyway

There is a guy on facebook selling new molded grills for 325 shipped I believe for 2010-2012.  I will be buying one in the spring.

Man, do I ever REALLY want to do something like this on my car.  I don't wan't to cut up the actual grilles though...  Does anyone know how to remove the 2 grilles on the 2013+ Lincoln MKS?  I can't figure it out, lol.  It's totally not fair that the Taurus turbo model gets a cool black mesh grille, but the MKS turbo model gets the same grille as the base model.  I want to use a material as similar as possible to the SHO mesh.  Without being able to remove the existing grilles intact, I don't feel comfortable trying it out.
