Does an aftermarket all black grill exist for the Focus ST? I have a 2005 Black Focus ST and am looking for a black grill that is similar to the black OEM grill that comes on non-black STs minus the gay chrome outline.
You would have to pop the inside "mesh" pattern out of a non-ST grille and then put it on your ST grille.
BUT the problem is that that the "mesh" pattern doesn't come off the grille (it's a one time thing....goes on, but doesn't come off)
I put an ST grille on my '05 and wanted to put the black "mesh" pattern from my stock chrome grille on my ST grille (instead of silver "mesh") on it, but it won't come off without damaging the grille, which I'm not gonna do.
To swap the surround...you need to pop out the "mesh" and it doesn't just pop out.
It's a one time insert kind of thing from the factory. You could try and pry it out from the like 10 clips, but you'll probably break something.
Unless you just wanna break it out and then glue it in the other grille
