Take your time and it's a good look!
This was my first purchase from American Muscle for my 2010. It arrived fast, and the first thing I did was unroll it, put it under a towel and iron it as flat as I could, then stuck it on the front of the fridge...my wife was thrilled...LOL. I left it there for a few days until I had time to properly install it. II can tell you that in doing that, it was very flat and easy to work with. Worth the wait! I washed the car and cleaned the trunk panel extremely well. Then, I put a nice coat of Mothers carnuba cleaner wax on the trunk, buffed it, and it was slick as a whistle. I cleaned the magnet very well on the back, heated it up with a hair dryer in the garage, and got it situated perfect around the trunk emblem. Then, working my way outward, got it to lay just perfect. I'm very pleased with it. It is sitting just perfect on the trunk, no wrinkles or bubbles or places where it's off the body. It's just right. I think it gives the rear end more depth, makes it look a little "meaner", and kinda gives a throwback flare from Mustangs of old. For $40, I think it's a pretty simple little mod that adds a cool touch if you take your time, prep it, and do it RIGHT. If you hurry it, it's going to look like crap. The instructions talk about taking it off every time you wash the car. I almost hate to do it, because it looks just right, but I know it's smart. My only concern is how it holds up to weather and that it doesn't hurt the paint on my trunk. The quality seems good and it's cut just perfect for the decklid. Nice simple product!
