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.

Thanks.

I believe if you can find one from a regular focus, the inserts just pop out...

Your ST came with a chrome-egded grille like the S, SE, or SES tirm levels? I thought part of getting the ST meant you get a black, silver, red or grey color-matched grille trim?!

A painted to match grill is a part of the ST package. If the grill on your '05 ST isn't all black, I start asking questions at the dealership.

My bad, I thought that all ST grills were completely matched. I just bought a silver on for my ZX3, it is completely silver, inside and out.

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.

just a heads up

actually, i think he has an ST focus, but the surround is black, but the mesh is silverish. you would need to find a stock S, SE, or SES grill and just swap the surroundsa nd you should be good to go.

Right but like I said....

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
