Exactly what "permanent modifications" are required? Is there some install pics or manual showing what mods have to be done? Does the whole fascia have to be removed and cut?

RickDee

  • No, the whole fascia does not need to be removed. There are two holes that need to be cut out for the two ducts. Instructions and templates are included as well. Hope this helps!

Hi I purchased the rear License plate surround w/ducts last week. I am now trying to pull off the existing panel and getting frustrated. The instructions aren't giving me a lot of info on how to remove the panel. It says use a hook tool. Now when I insert this tool into the whole do I have to push up or down to release the tabs or just pull hard? What might this tool look like I've been trying a few things here and no luck. Your help would be much appreciated as I want to get this done today. Thanks Greg

    Expensive for what it is, but makes a big difference in appearance

    I had planned to buy this product for some time, but kept putting it off due to price. I finally caved in and got it, just because I got tired of looking at the stock license plate surround. Having the installation instructions available ahead of time allowed me to print the template and cut the rear valence so that once the part came in, all I had to do was snap it in place. It looks like it belongs, fits right, and really completes the rear end of the car.

    Quality part by RTR

    This product completely changes the rear end of the '13 &'14 by replacing the stock "after-thought" license surround with a fresh an imaginative part that shows an aggressive look. The install is relatively easy. Just follow the instructions and take your time.The hardest part is getting the courage to cut into the bumper cover, but once it's done and you pop the RTR piece in place it's well worth it. Awesome looking!

    RTR License Plate surround

    The stock 2013 and 2014 Mustangs look great from the back. The RTR surround has quality construction and fitted perfectly. I think it enhances the look. (aggressive!) The black contrasts well with my white Mustang GT. I didn't give it 5 stars accross the board because I believe the pricing could be a little lower.

    Styleish Rear License Plate Surround

    The Stylish RTR Rear License Plate Surround gives the rear end of my 2013 GT a much more aggressive/sporty appearance. The duct design is a great accent for the concave styled tail lights and definitely distinguishes the back end from the stock component. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone who is looking to add some style to the back end of their 2013 5.0.

    License Plate Surround

    My opinion the RTR license plate surround coupled with the Boss rear difusser really sets off the hindend of my black 5.0. Very pronounced and aggressive appearance. Looking into adding lighting into the depressions to work with the driving lights. Really adds uniqueness to the ride, I don't recommend this product only to maintain my distinction.. I love the addition.

    Great look!

    Before I say anything I would recommend removing the bumper for this mod. I did the install like the instructions and there are so many time where the bumper could be damaged. The product is built very well and is solid. It looks great on the Mustang. the template that came with the car was spot on and I did not have to trim after the initial install. I went ahead and used some black Plasti Dip on the car inside the hole so you couldn't see the white body back behinds the mesh openings. Not really needed but I wanted to take the extra step.

    RTR license surround w/ducts install a breeze

    This product looks as good as you think it would once it's on the car! The installation was a breeze! I used an oscillating saw to make the cuts so I didn't even have to use the drill. The ONLY thing I would like to have seen, is the paper with the template to be a heavier card stock. I made it work by using my kids glue stick just fine though.The instructions were idiot proof (lucky for me!) and made it mega easy. I think it makes the rear look drastically different and definitely stands out from the crowd.

    Another must have product.

    I always thought the surround around the rear license plate on my Boss 302 looked really cheap, and was anxious to try this product out. It was very easy to install, and the effect on the overall appearance of the vehicle is dramatic. It takes a cheesey looking problem area and makes it look uber-cool. I love it.

    I hated the cheap look of the stock plastic license plate surround and this item really changes the look of the back end. It adds a more muscular look which I love, however coming in at $215 it isn't cheap.

    ok

    Looks great on the car however the item is very fragile. The first two were broken right out of the box. One was snapped in half the other had 4 broken clips. Third one was in perfect shape. Cutting the bumper is required, just remember to paint behind the mesh black or you will see your paint color behind parts of it

    Good except for the bad.

    The piece itself is nice and fits like a glove. I do however have a couple of issues with the install. 1.The template to mark area for cutting really needs to be made from a heavy cardstock so it doesn't flex so much. Moisture in the air made mine really wimpy so it took two of us to hold it up and mark. I also masked the area with blue painters tape so the sharpie would show on my black car. 2. The instructions are a bit simplistic and the pictures don't really have much contrast which led to confusion on my part removing the old surround. Using several different sized hook tools trying to 'unsnap' the surround I only succeeded in breaking it so 'in for a penny...' out it came in numerous pieces. What the heck I'm putting a new surround in anyway so no big deal. Once the holes were cut and trimmed/cleaned up the new RTR piece is in and it's good, all is right with the world. :)

    Great Product, really completes the rear

    I'm very satisfied with the product. As others have said removal of the old surround is by far the most difficult part of the install. After no luck with a precision hook set, I grabbed a large set from HF and was eventually able to get it off... In pieces. After that all went smoothly, I reprinted the template on cardstock which helped transferring the cutout over. A stepped drill bit and HF electric bodysaw made quick work of the cutting. I hit the inner body work with a few coats of flat black so that it wouldn't standout through the mesh and clipped in the new panel without issue. I love the look of the new surround, especially when paired with the RTR decklid.
