Review & Install Video
Today, I'm bringing you my detailed review and breakdown of the blue carbon fiber dash kit fitting all 2015 through 2017 Mustangs. I will be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and about an hour's worth of labor. I'm going to have a little bit more detail for you coming up on that later. So the blue carbon fiber dash kit that I have here today is going to be for the Mustang owner out there that's going to be looking to make a very big and bold statement inside of the cabin of their car, maybe somebody that's looking to win or take home a couple trophies at your local car show. Last but not least, it's just going to be for the guys that love blue. Now, right off the bat, I'm going to say it right now, guys, this kit is not going to be for everyone. If this is not your cup of tea, here, we've got everything from a standard carbon, a brushed aluminum look, or even a red style. At the end of the day, it's going to come down to your personal taste and how you're looking to accentuate and make your car that much more personalized. I think this is going to be a great option for the Lightning Blue, Deep Impact Blue, or for the all-new 2017-year Grabber Blue guys out there that are looking to pull some of their exterior accent into the inside, again, personalize your car a little bit further. Especially, if you're going to be running some other blue accents on your car too, which can honestly range from blue Lemans stripes or rocker stripes. It's honestly, just going to come down to the look that you're after. Now, aside from the looks, this is going to give the inside of your Mustang, construction-wise, 100% of the vinyl that we manufacture and cut right here in house, as well as testing it on our entire fleet of cars and trucks, is going to be comprised out of a 4-mil style vinyl. Now, that's going to be that much more durable and stronger than a calendared-style vinyl, which is a great thing, because if this is going to be in your cabin, it's going to be heating up over the summer. It's going to be getting really cold over the winter. You can rest easy knowing that this is going to be able to handle all types of temperature and weather, as well as holding up over time. Now, another great aspect about this material specifically is that on the underside or the adhesive side, it's going to feature something called an "Air Release Technology," which essentially means that once it comes time to install this in your car, you're not going to have to [inaudible] it like you might have found with vinyl that was manufactured 5, 10, even 15 years ago. So pricing here, you should expect to be spending $130, which in my opinion, if you are the Lightning Blue, Deep Impact Blue owner, or like I said earlier, new for 2017, the Grabber Blue owner, it's a small price to pay to drastically change up the entire look of your cabin, make it pop more against your dash, as well as taking away some of those car show points. Now, for the price here, you're getting absolutely everything in this kit. That's your entire dash arrangement from your headlight controls, your window controls, your entire dash, radio, doors, everything that you're going to need to completely transform your interior. But if this is just going to be too loud for you, like I said earlier, it's got a couple different finishes here. That could be from a honeycomb, a brushed aluminum style, a regular carbon fiber, even a red one. At the end of the day, it's really going to come down to how you're looking to personalize your car. So getting this into your car, just like I had said up top, you're looking at a very straightforward one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and about an hour's worth of labor here. However, if you're not comfortable installing the vinyl on your car, there's absolutely zero shame taking this to a local detailer, a body shop, hell, you could even run it down to your Ford dealership. But in all honesty, this is as simple as pulling off a sticker and putting it on, just a little bit more labor intensive. So looking ahead here, some things that I would make sure to have on hand would be a hairdryer, a couple clean microfiber towels just to prep your dash, and then a small bottle of water with a couple drops of soap. Now, you're not going to want to soak your entire dash with this. You're going to want to mist it, and that's mainly going to be so that once you put the pieces into place, you can move them around and make sure that they're in line before you take your hairdryer, and then the supplied squeegee, and move all that air and moisture out. So to start here, guys, you can honestly work with any piece, no matter the size. I would personally start with some of the smaller pieces, just so you can get an idea of how that material is going to react. Again, you're really not looking at anything crazy here. You're merely just going to be misting the surface and getting them down. Once they're in place and you're satisfied, take the provided squeegee here and start working out a little bit of that moisture. Then, you can take your hairdryer to it, where it's going to cause that adhesive to stick, and then you're good to go. Okay, guys. So just to wrap things up here, if you're looking to make a very big statement inside and change up the looks, add a little bit more of a customized look, I would definitely suggest checking this out for your car. I'm Alex, and that's my detailed review and breakdown of the blue carbon fiber dash kit fitting all 2015 through 2017 Mustangs, which can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

A Blue Carbon Fiber Dash Kit will really complement the appearance of any blue Mustang or any Mustang with blue exterior stripes.
