Note: This install was completed on a 2010 style Mustang. The process remains the same for 2005-2009 Mustangs.

Installation Instructions:

1. Get soap and water. Unroll the deck lid and clean both sides.

2. You need to make it flat prior to installing since it was rolled up in the box. My suggestion is to put it under your mattress or something of equal weight that can keep it flat for approximately 24hrs. You could also attach it to your refrigerator to flatten as well.

3. Make sure that the edges of the deck lid are not bunched up or it will not flatten correctly.

4. Once the panel is flat, apply it to your Mustang’s decklid.

5. Place it around the faux gas cap and carefully press it in around the emblem.

6. Align the panel using the top part of the trunk to guide you in making it nice and straight.
