How Hard Is It to Install a Body Kit On a Mustang?
Installing a body kit on a Mustang can really vary in difficultly depending on the kit or the piece, but typically it will be somewhat challenging for the inexperienced. Ultimately your car is like on big Lego set and can be easily modified because of it; you just need to know the right screws and latches to get things on and off the car. A majority of body kit parts are easy to install/uninstall and don’t require permanent modification.
However, there are some body kit parts that will be a bit more challenging to install as they may require permanent modification to the body. Rear valences, fender vents, fender flares, and even some decklids will all require you to cut into the body of your Mustang.
These types of installs can be tricky and are often best left to the professionals, but if you are so inclined you can take it on yourself. Just remember to measure carefully and repeatedly, make mocks and stencils, and to trace out where you are going to cut with blue painter’s tape. Most importantly, make sure you have the proper tools to get the job done; don’t try to hack and hammer your way through an install as it will have a noticeable impact on the final product.
