"Often thought Ford should have gone with a more aggressive front grille design...."
-I wanted something more mean looking too, which is why I changed my front end to look like this. I've always liked the '73 grill, so I adapted one to my '71 and made my version of a "cobra" grill. I used thin gauge metal to block off the inner lamps, then covered them in a silver carbon fiber. I left the trim off the grill to give a blacked-out look, then capped it off with LED headlamps. Much more aggressive than OEM I think
