Marty,
Brett from Monroe WA has it. It now has the speaker location in it also. I can't remember his GT/CS name.

Yes, I have it and if you send me your address, I'll forward it on.

I haven't had a chance use it so, I might try and copy it before sending it on.

Thanks,
Bret

Interesting, would have thought you hold it up to the door where you want it, mark the screw holes. Pull it off, hold the light and speaker to the back and see where they need to go and then transfer the outline off the grille to the door.. ????

Maybe that doesn't work for some reason, never tried it.

I was going to add them but decided to just get some neodymium magnets, embed then in the back of the grill, and stick them to the lower door. Add the look, kinda, but avoid cutting. May try to figure out some battery operated LED light to embed with a magnetic swith to turn on when the door opens, but that's only one more wild idea I have when insomnia kicks in and I'm thinking about the project...!!!

Thanks for the compliment on the my CS. Looks way better from 20 feet, but then again I know where all the flaws are. It is an '05 Mustang Screaming Yellow.

Thank,
Bret

The template that Marty did from his deluxe door locates the door light holes perfectly. It would be very hard to duplicate the location without a correct template. And I added the location of the door speaker hole and the proper location and size of the speaker cutout. Not to mention the exact hole size and dimensions for the factory speakers for those who want to use Ford speakers. I am not a concurs guy, but if you wish to duplicate the original, then you need a template.

So... I went out to the garage and held a grille up to the door. I can mark where the screws go.

I remove the grille, put it face down and place a speaker and light on the backside where they need to go. I make an outline. I transfer that to the door...

What am I missing that makes a template madatory?

No one said that it was not possible. Just easier and more accurate. The screws mount in a square insert that must be centered If you miss the speaker hole by 1/4 of an inch it will show out side of the grill. Measure twice and cut once in IMHO.

I used Marty's template to accurately locate the door lights. I used a factory Ford door speaker from 1967/1968 to size the speaker hole and the location of the speaker mounting holes.

I am not a concurs guy, but was working on a customer car and felt the need to duplicate the factory specifications for adding this option as best I could.

Yes, you can just use the grill and locate the speaker and door light as best you can. No one will more than likely no the difference.

Not the way I do work for customers that walk in my door. Marty, thank you for the template.
