Installation Time: Afternoon

Beautiful fit and finish
I installed my MMD spoiler two days ago. Overall, extremely satisfied with the product. The pre-painted spoiler was painted perfectly barring one slight imperfection that I found. It was so small that I decided it wasn't worth sending it back for a new one.
Packaging was questionable... I would have hoped that MMD/American Muscle would have put a little more effort into making sure that damage would be unlikely during shipping. The box it came in was mangled (not AM's fault, but the fault of UPS). At first glance at the box, I thought the spoiler would be in pieces when I opened it. Luckily, it was not. However, it was only protected by a thin layer of foam and some bubble wrap. Perhaps using a Styrofoam mold to completely encase it or even packing peanuts would be a safer way of transporting it.
After I inspected it and made sure that everything was in the box, I set out on installation. I applied it in 45 degree weather while it was pouring outside (I was in a garage) and the 3M tape gave me a lot of trouble. 3M tape is sensitive to environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature. If you attempt application in a cold, wet environment, I can assure you that the 3M tape included with this spoiler will not bond to your Mustang.
The fit of this spoiler is perfect. No gaps to speak of. The spoiler sits perfectly flush and the screws ensure that it isn't going to go anywhere. I am thankful that the MMD spoiler re-uses the factory mounting holes in the deck lid. Otherwise, I don't think I would have had the stomach to drill into my car! The look is great. The factory spoiler was just too small. This thing harkens back to the Shelby's of old.
Do not worry about rear-ward visibility. While this spoiler is tall, it isn't so tall that it renders the rear view mirror useless.
The paint job on the spoiler was stellar. Looked identical to that of the factory spoiler.
That's all I can think to say about the product at the moment. Thanks AM!
