    I know you said you'd wait a while for the marker lights but I'm still curious; who's gonna be the first to do them?

    @Joe Holcomb Did you by chance explore swapping the "FORD" lettering only over to the US Spec front grill?

    Finished product! A little more trimming on the bottom right corners, approximately 1/8” taken off in depth approximately 1” wide. Grille secured at factory mounting holes.

    Nope, but it wasn’t a lot, right hand bottom corners.
