Re: How to install front grill in ba falcons

If you are talking about the space below the number plate, then I suggest you go to Ford and buy the the ford factory mesh already folded into the right shape. There are also ones available from herrods etc as well.

It is a simple job to fit - drop the front tray that sits in behind the bumper. Fit the mesh in the opening and sikaflex it in place.

Re: How to install front grill in ba falcons

This might not be relevant but I had the T-series grill put in the pursuit front end on my XR, all done at the dealership so I guess they should have ways to fit it (nicely) for you. But again, as everybody knows, I've got zero technical knowledge so I had nowhere else to go in the first place....LOL

Re: How to install front grill in ba falcons

doesn't the grill on the XR differ to the one on the XT because the front spoiler is a different shape. Then does ford make the grill to fit the xt, and would it be the same price as the xr one, because thats why i was looking for a cheap alternative. At the moment im just looking around and getting ideas from what evreryone has done to their BA's. Thanks for your help so far

Re: How to install front grill in ba falcons

The grill I was talking about is available from Kloster Ford Newcastle. The part code is x/grill. Iam unsure of its suitability for the XT falcon. But it looks great on my XR.
