  • Yes! I have a Grabber Orange Mustang and it completely blacks out the area it covers. You do need to beware of the fit, however. Mine was a little short on the sides and the Orange shows on the deck lid about 1/4" from the sides.

Does water get in there? Will water get trapped in there also will water get into any of the black outs for the light covers too? Thanks!

  • Both of the panels and light covers are designed to not get any water into them. In my experience, the Blackout Panel has been completely resistant to water!

Re-attaching Can you remove this and reattach it? I would love to get one now but i plan on painting my car within the near future. Would it be better to go with the magnetic one?

    I did some modifications

    October 14, 2009

    I had to do some modification to the black out panel, I didn't like the idea of sticking the panel directly on the car itself. I had the magnet type black out panel before which I liked but this one seems better. So what I did was cut the maget panel up into strips and peeled the tape off of this panel and put the maget strips on the tape that came with this panel. It fits really great on the car so when I need to take it off I can.

    Perfect minor touch

    August 04, 2010

    I had the magnetic panel, but that thing bubbled and fell apart after a few months (wouldn't recommend). My car looked a little plain without it though, so I bought this one. Oddly enough, I found it easier to apply than the magnetic one which was tight around the faux cap. The center hole on this one was a little big so you can see the original paint, but you have to look close. Overall I love it as it's a perfect compliment to the 2010 lights I installed as well.

    Nice Panel

    March 05, 2009

    Nice fit,looks great.When you go to install,do not tear all the plastic off the 3m tape.Peel back about 1\" fron one end of each piece of tape.If you don\'t have it set just right you can get it back off.When you get it right you can pull the plastic off the tape as you press it on.

    Rear black~out panel

    October 13, 2012

    I was dissapointed with water from car washes getting behind the panel and having water spots that I could not get to, to wipe clean....I removed it, and it now resides in my closet. I'd like to put it back on, but wondered how to keep water from getting underneath it again?? Love the look...hate the water spots. Suggestions?? I selected "no" because of above.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      The tape that comes on the blackout panel should prevent water from getting inside. I would try applying some additional 3M tape to the sides; this should create a seal to keep any water from getting to the back side. I'm going to forward this feedback to our development team to see what can be done to improve this blackout panel. If the side tape doesn't help, you can certainly give us a call and we can help you find something you'd enjoy more!

    blackout panel

    October 13, 2010

    Very happy with my decision over the magnetic panel. This one is extremely shiny and makes the car look awesome and stand out from the rest. I've received many compliments. I also installed the brake light tint kit and trust me, you won't be disappointed! Thanks A.M.

    Nice addition to Gen5 Taillights

    March 09, 2014

    Ordered and received in 2 days. This is a nice piece to complete the black-out look with the new Gen5 tailights. The install was easy and took about 45 minutes. I followed the advice of another reviewer and added some additional 3-M tape to the left and right vertical sides to prevent water from getting behind the piece. The 2 things preventing me from giving 5-stars for fit was that the center hole was slightly out of round(oval shape from left to right), and the left/right outside edges of my decklid were not completely covered after install.

    Awesome, low cost addition

    March 03, 2014

    After installing the Raxiom Gen 5 tail lights on my Torch Red 07 the deck lid panel looked plain. The lights are blacked out but glossy so I went with this deck lid panel and wow, what a difference it makes. Kinda ties it all together. One complaint is with the width of the panel. Facing the panel, the right side reached the end of the panel while the left side was about 1/8" short, exposing a strip of red paint. The center hole was lined up perfectly. I used a strip of black electric tape to cover both ends and installed the panel. Unless you are standing an inch away you cant see the tape. For the price you cant beat it.
