Hey, what's going on guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a quick overview of Anderson Composites Emblem Delete Decklid Panel in carbon fiber fitting all 2015 and newer Mustangs. So in this video I'll be going over the styling and appearance you can expect when picking up the Emblem Delete Decklid panel from Anderson Composites as well as the materials and construction, given the nature of it being carbon fiber. I'll even walk you through the installation, which I'll tell you upfront, will get a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, making it something anybody can do with a little bit of time in the driveway at home. It will be a direct bolt-on. Let's just jump right into it. The Anderson Composites Emblem Delete Rear Decklid Panel in carbon fiber will be for all 2015 and newer Mustang owners out there, looking to get rid of that rear emblem decklid with a GT or a pony logo and replacing it with something made of pure carbon fiber. This part is going to offer a very unique styling to the new S550s, in the sense that it is going to delete your rear decklid emblem to give a very clean muscle car look made completely out of 100% real carbon fiber, making it something that is very durable, very lightweight and very aggressive in appearance.Now with that said I'd expect this to appeal to the guys out there going to a lot of cars and coffee events or maybe some formal events, looking to take home the prize by turning some heads at the car show, standing out from the pack. Now if you are picking this up, expect something manufactured out of 100% real carbon fiber vacuum infused lead with a high gloss finish, very attractive finish here on this decklid panel over the stock panel. Going to blend in very well with the lines of the new S550, all while being ready to be installed right out of the box, something anybody can do. Now price-wise, if you are interested in picking up the Emblem Delete Rear Decklid Panel for the new S550 from Anderson Composites, in the carbon fiber finish, expect to be spending about $300, definitely an expected price tag when shopping for true carbon fiber material for the new S550. It's strong, it's lightweight, it's extremely attractive, very aggressive, a lot of bang for your buck here. Saving you about $50 compared to some of the other competitors out there who offer similar products. This one is a little bit more budget friendly. But it's still a little pricey, given that its carbon fiber, just a little bit less than some of the other options out there. Now switching gears over to the installation portion of the video, like I said this one is gonna be something anybody can do with a little bit of time in the driveway at home, I'd say 30 minutes or so at the maximum, with a few basic hand tools like a ratchet and proper socket. So to kick things off you wanna pop open your trunk and remove the covers on the top two corners as well as the bolts underneath them and the trunk liner itself. From there you wanna make sure you're unclipping your factory backup camera in its respective position just to get all properly because you will be reinstalling that into your Anderson Composites product. Now once you get that factory decklid panel off, it will be as simple as replacing that one with the Anderson Composite version here, with the bolt provided in the kit in their respective locations. Now once you get the Anderson Composites Rear Decklid Panel in place, all you're gonna have to do is replace those bolts, the covers and the trunk liner itself, shut everything down and you're good to go. Overall, like I said very simple install, about 30 minutes or so to complete, definitely giving this one a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. If you're the owner of a 2015 or newer Mustang and you're looking for a way to delete that rear decklid emblem, while also adding a carbon fiber finish to it, you might wanna check out Anderson Composites Emblem Delete Decklid Panel in carbon fiber, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

If you are into carbon fiber this is a great piece. However with that said I had to return the first 2 due to damage. The packaging is not exactly what an expensive piece needed. Third time was a charm though! Just a tip when installing it, you may have to tap the mounting slots in the trunk where the original was pulled from. If you don’t the new decklid may not sit tight to the trunk. Also if you want to remove the new carbon fiber decklid your most likely to damage the mounting tabs and possibly the lid itselfHelpful (3)

For the amount could fit better
Doesn’t match up perfectly had to cut off 2 of the clips didn’t come with weather seal had to buy and apply myself kind of have to make it fit screws are crooked and just about forced on but after a lot of work it fit looks great definitely more work then shown in the videoHelpful (3)

Looks good, but not perfect fit
Good quality carbon fiber. Had slight fitment issue with the 2 center screws around backup camera shroud but managed to make it work. These are built to order so don’t expect it to show up within a week. Ended up being about 3 weeks from date of order. Also make sure to do an inspection before letting ups guy leave. First one I got was smashed and cracked in the corner, but AM made it right and immediately put in replacement/return order.Helpful (3)

The decklid panel is a great looking piece, however, the original decklid that I ordered and it's replacement both had issues with the camera cut-out. The first was out-of-round and had chipping along the cut and the replacement was cut off-center and the camera would not sit flush with the panel.Helpful (3)

Camera doesn't align
I did an inspection of the product before trying to put it on. To my disappointment, the camera mount was not flush from left to right (meaning one side was a few mm taller than the other side)- I figured it would mess with camera fitment and be off at a weird angle, so never bothered to put it on. There was also a small crack in the camera cutout. I returned the product. I may have received a defective one, but if you choose to buy I recommend inspecting your unit completely before doing any kind of install. The product did look sleek and if it hadn't been defective, it may have looked good. 2 Stars.Helpful (5)

Looks Great and super easy
This item looks great, however I purchased it for my 2019 Bullitt and the fitment is different. It was an easy fix but still a bit frustrating. It's an expensive part to have to "make" fit. I don't know if any other 19's will have the same issue. Also, save your locking clips from your original part. Mine didn't come with any and there is no easy replacement if you need one because you didn't keep track (my mistake.)Helpful (3)

Great fit, but...
Installed this almost two years ago now, so heres my review of this so far. Everything fits fantastic, took a little time to install but nothing too frustrating. Up until this point everything was fine, but now the clear coat on the right edge of the panel is starting to go bad. Not sure how well it's supposed to hold up, but my car is a daily so maybe I'm expecting too much longevity. Otherwise great productHelpful (4)

Anderson Composites does it again with a beautiful product.Helpful (5)
Does this item require to be clear coated ,or does waxing only required to protect finish ? ?
This item does not need to be clear coated, waxing would help protect the finish.
Is there a matching part for around the tail light lenses?
We do not currently carry any carbon fiber tail light trim pieces.
Will this fit a 2018 Mustang EcoBoost without modification? Some users report the clips being in the wrong spot. The installation in the video used a 2015-2017 S550 Mustang.
Hi,when replacing rear panel ,is there a kit to replace the seals , as the same that is on the ford panel ? Thanks
Unfortunately this will not include a kit that replaces the seals. This panel will reuse all the factory hardware.
Will the carbon fiber match the mmd tail light covers
The Anderson Composites Emblem Delete Decklid Panel does match the MMD Carbon Fiber Tail Light Bezels
The Anderson Composites Emblem Delete Decklid Panel can reuse the existing clips, or new clips can be purchased through your local Ford dealer's parts department.
The Anderson Composites Emblem Delete Decklid Panel requires you to remove the trunk liner, remove the bolts holding the 4 OEM Decklid panel retaining nuts, and camera, and then reversing the procedure to reinstall.
