they shouldnt and if u break em which i doubt just go to the ford dealer parts with one and ask if they have more.

only problem i had with my aftermarket grill shell was the factory clips didnt like to click onto the plastic on the shell and wouldnt stay so I just didnt run them, the bottom fo the grill shook a little but you couldnt tell i was missing them unless u actually pulled the bottom of the grill.

try stucco wire, it cost me 7.50 for a 8' by 27'' piece, far more than needed, but still cheap

That looks good. How did you mount it? Do you have any pics?

heres where the actual work was done
i did mine really crudely but its going to hold on no matter what
i folded the edges of the stucco wire around the back of the grill tightly, then siliconed the heck out of it with globs and globs haha
very sturdy

just remembered, i used a charcoal grey spray paint on the stucco wire before i put it on the grill, the regular colour wasnt what i was looking for, consider that as an option as well
the colour turned out nice

I painted the faded gray to black made a little difference.

here's an older pic...but you get the idea

What I wouldn't give for a Home Depot here!!

I used some galvanized rat wire for years.
I finally cleaned it up & painted it black right before I painted the grille, bumper insert & valance with Fusion paint. PIC
