I used the 3m tape it came with for a test fit, then i bought 3m tape from autozone and used it all with the 3m adhesive wipes that came with it. Redfire color matched perfectly and if you follow the ... directions that come with it and not the ones in the review section you'll be straight....TEST FIT BEFORE USING ADHESIVE PROMOTOR
there is a trick to installing these scoops--first notice the "ridge that runs through the car around the door handle--- the scoop has to be about 3/16"th above the ridge for the upper tape to hold. as ... mentioned earlier adhesive promoter is needed to keep the 3 M tape on the scoops. using a hair dryer to heat the corners of the scoops will allow you to form the scoops to the shape of your car. use painters tape to hold the scoop in place for at least 48 hours adhesive promotor can be used on the car BUT you only have one chance to mount the scoop properly
Do these scoops have the mesh grill insersts like th cs scoops? I have bought the eleanor louvers and they have the mesh grill inserts id like the scoops to have the same.
No they do not come with any inserts, i made my own.
Functional? Are they functional? If not, how hard is it to make them functional?
no, just like the look, it doesn't appear to be made functional
Will it fit with... I'm looking into getting the Roush Rocker Molding kit and the edges look like they might get in the way of this product. Will they fit correctly if I have the molding kit installed?
Hi, Afraid I can't be much help with this. My car is a '14 and does not have the Rocker Moulding Kit. Also, the shape of the scoops that fit the '14 are different than those pictured for your car.....sorry.
Installation Time:Less than 1 Hour

Side Scoops - Pre-Painted
This review is on the pre-painted side scoops for my 2009 Mustang GT 45th Anniversary Edition. I actually purchased 3M tape instead of using the tape that was supplied. The install took me around 30 to 45 minutes and that's including prep time. The paint / clearcoat matched perfectly to my 2009 Mustang GT and actually enhances the exterior beauty. When installing the scoops, I used the door as my guide, then worked the bottom section of the scoop next. The top didn't have to be aligned as the bottom of the scoop was aligned. Instructions and all supplies were included in my shipment. This was faily easy to do. Just be sure that you are installing these on a warm sunny day, I installed these on 4/11/2011 and the outside temp was around 80 degrees. The installation difficulty level was pretty easy. Be sure to let the 3M tape bond/cure to both the scoops and the pony before driving or washing the entire vehicle. You can't go wrong with AmericanMuscle.com, fast free shipping took about 1 1/2 days to receive my scoops. I will make more purchases from AmericanMuscle.com

my mustang gt
great paint and clearcoat the edge along the door as a guide little off but workable. my friends like them alot because there are more agressive looking compared to the average run of the mill side scoop .

First thing I did was buy new 3-M tape (180" roll) 2nd thing is take off all the over spray where the tape goes. Install new tape and fit to car and mark the top and align with door. Works great and use a heat gun or hair dryer and pressed into place.

No Install Instructions
I bought the Vista Blue Scoops(color is great). No instruction were included. Pretty basic install, had done similar before. held in place for 24+ hours. A few days later started lifting on ends. Will need to redue soon.

Review from Side Scoops - Unpainted (05-09 All)
They look great on the car where easy to install. But noticed the bottom started to detach from the car after a month. Not sure if i should take them off and reapply them because the top and the sides are holding on great. Changes the look of the car excell.
Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Well I got them in the mail and I was not to happy.if it wasn't for the flaws they would look awesome.when they were painted , the very edge was not covered with paint and on the top of both scoops is a slight dent in the plastic.i had already put them on the car because I was so excited to get them before I noticed.i spend a lot of money with this company,this was a big let down.I don't think they would take them back now.

this product was warped and out of shape i sent the first one back and will be sending this one back as well. I bought stick on products before and tried to stick on warped and it stuck every where but where its warped and i'm not willing to try this with a pannel as this for fear of runing the paint. It may be your your packaging of this product try not wrapingthem back to back witch i beleive is what is making them warp out of shape.

Scoop had a dimple in each side but was livable, bottom of scoop did not lay flat against body and had to be supported but still had a small gap, filled with silicon and painted. After filling and extra double sided tape, looks good.
