Great Looking And Practical Add On
Two changes I considered for my Mustang were front and rear splash guards, and they needed installing all at once to look correct, but attaching the rear guards with my wheels on was difficult. But since I was also installing caliper covers with all four wheels off, I added my four splash guards at the same time.
From American Muscle, I ordered Speedform No-Drill Splash Guards - Front Pair (10-14 All), Item# 73076, MPN# 73036, and Ford GT500 Rear Splash Guard - Pair (10-14 All), Item# 387474, MPN# DR3Z-6328371-AA. This second item is an OEM Ford part. Although the fronts and rears were made by different manufacturers, they look appropriate on my car.
These parts are black plastic, but they install differently. The fronts may be accessed without removing the wheels. There are two removable clips to carefully pry out. Clean the contact area. Align each guard and replace the push pins. For the rear guards, the space between the back of the wheels and the three attaching fender screws that are removed on each side is almost impossible to reach. It is easier to pull the wheel off first and then loosen the screws, although this could be done with a short screwdriver. With my rims off for my caliper covers installation, accessing all four areas was easy, and installing my four splash guards was simple!
If your Mustang is a daily driver, as mine is, and you also show it, then adding splash guards is a worthwhile investment. They keep much of the debris and small rocks from kicking onto your quarter panels. These are nice looking trim pieces that add another black accent to my Sterling Grey paint. Although not intended as an appearance item, they do add to the look of our Mustangs.
