Here is some pictures and details of my install of a 'raptor' grille on my 2015 Edge Sport. Click this link to go to my build log: 

 

Process: 

Jack up the car, remove the battery, headlight housings, and front wheels. Then start removing all the fasteners on the bottom of the bumper. Remove the fender liner fasteners. Pull the fender liners, disconnect the electrical connections on the driver side of the bumper. 5 connectors if you have the engine block heater, 4 if you don't.  Remove the push pins on the intake cover. Detach the bumper by removing the 3 bolts on each side of the bumper where it meets the chassis. Remove the bolts holding the grille to the upper radiator/hood supports. Then carefully move the bumper. If you have the front view camera, you have to disconnect the washer and electrical connector before the bumper, grille, and chassis can be separated. Once you've got the bumper off the car, have fun with the clips that hold the grille onto the bumper. One clip is near a mounting tab for the wiring harness, be careful otherwise you may snap the grille at that point.  There are 2 brackets screwed onto the grille that need to be transferred to the new grille 

 

 

The new grille snaps right into place, you can use the handle end of pliers to push on either side of the mounting tabs until you hear them click in. You can either remove the front camera and washer completely, or re mount them. I removed the washer, and remounted the camera between the O and the R. The view is obstructed, but still usable. The harness needs to be moved so it is less visible through the grille. It needs to slot in between the grille and bumper bar. You can then wire the lights on the grille if you wish. I ran mine off an ignition switched control panel I have. See this link: 


Got the grille from ebay, seller: autoparts-selection

Thank you!   And lol only drove it for 2 hours since its been on. Got 1 thumbs up so far

Wrapping the honeycomb would be pretty challenging.  It comes as a metallic matte grey, mine was missing paint and was scratched so I had to repaint. Got it painted a semigloss metallic black.  

 

Heres some other shots:

Got the grille from ebay, seller: autoparts-selection  They even helped me out with the cost of repainting the grille, plus it only took like a week for it to arrive. 

 

Here is the link to their store:  http://stores.ebay.c...&_nkw=Ford Edge  (note that the listings expire)

honey comb isn't hard to wrap, it's just annoying and extremely time consuming, I was referring to wrapping everything but the honeycomb and red letters. but wife used her Veto on this mod and doesn't like the grille on the Edge, she loves it on the raptor though.

Grill looks pretty cool but I'm not sure about the black paint or wrap on the hood.  What's on the hood????

Nice! Would match my 2010 Raptor.......funny thing though, I remember back in 2010 a lot of folks hated the Raptor grill and were looking for replacement grill options.

That would've looked pretty nice, maybe she'll change her mind.

Thanks, its some 3m gloss black vinyl. Used to have plastidip surrounding the perimeter of the hood

I actually like the OE Gen2 grill. If I wanted to see it like this mod I'd just look at my raptor. lol B)

Figured this would be a good thread to post this on.  Has anyone seen the Euro spec Vignale edition Edge?  Particularly the honeycomb grille?  I also really like the fog lights.  Heres a pic:

You can get that grille on ebay too now, a few sellers have it. It looks like the clips are the same as the stock and raptor grille.

Does your car have a radar in front for adaptiv cruise control?

 

Looking at maybe installing the raptor grille myself, but unsure about the radar that is in front on my 2017 Edge Sport...

I think the Adaptive Cruise Control hardware is mounted low, behind the bumper cover near the inter-cooler, well below the grill

You can see the location of the Radar for the Adaptive Cruise Control in the owners manual "Blocked Sensor". It is at the bottom as roots57 stated, net to the signature lighting.
