Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour
July 02, 2015
Cheap, easy, yet great looking quick appearance mod.
Ordered these on a Monday, got them on Thursday morning (West Coast), so excellent customer service/shipping as always from AM.
Installation time took about 20 mins, simply because I am a perfectionist when it comes to mods like this, and it has to align perfectly with no bubbles.
The vinyl itself is thick, and looks quite durable. Opened the package, everything was included. The only brief confusion I had was regarding the soap/water mixture. In the video, it says to use a dish-soap/water mixture, but the instructions say to use simply filtered water. I decided to go with the soap/water mixture, and it seemed to have worked well. Install was easy, and fitment was almost perfect (just a little overflow from some of the pieces, but not noticeable at all unless you are the one that does the installing)
The difference is immediately noticeable. It just makes the already sexy-derriere of my 'stang that much sexier. The uniform black look is perfect for these cars, and should have come this way stock.
After applying them with the supplied squeege, I let them sit for an hour or so. I then went back to see if I had missed air bubbles, which I certainly did. I simply wrapped my squeege in a micro-fiber cloth, and squeezed all of the remaining bubbles out.
The one piece of advice (that is mentioned in the instructions) that I find to be crucial is this: during your handling of the vinyl pieces, make sure that your fingers are wet (just spray them with the soap/water mixture). This will prevent the vinyl from sticking to your hands (very sticky when not wet, but not sticky at all when wet) as well as leaving your fingerprints all over them.
Aside from that, one of the easiest appearance mods that you could do, all while giving a distinct and unique look to your mustang.
Thanks to the amazing LED taillights that our stangs have, the light output is not affected at all. And even if it is, the light strips running around the center lights are more than enough.
Great product, just a little on the expensive side for what they are, easy to apply, and immediate satisfaction after applying. A must have for '13 and '14 owners.
