Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of this Carbon Fiber Dash Kit for the 2015 and up Mustang. The carbon fiber dash kit is going to be for the S550 owners out there, that are looking to change up the looks of their interior. Now there are a few options here. You can either go with a subtle change with a normal black carbon fiber or you can go all out and throw some color up in there with a red carbon design. Either way, the carbon fiber dash kit is an easy way to really customize the interior and give it some personalization. So like I just mentioned, there are some color options with this kit. You always have the classic, normal carbon fiber design which is more of a subtle change, but I'm still going to say that it totally changes the look and feel of the interior, and this is coming from sitting in a few cars that have this kit in them. But if you're really looking for an in-your-face design, or something that's going to match your exterior theme that you have going on, or maybe tie in your red leather seats, than there are two red options. This one on the table right here is a standard red carbon fiber kit. You can see this is pretty bold, and a bright red, and that's really going to pop against the black dash. But there's also a red aluminum version of this kit as well, if this red might be a little strong for you. The red aluminum is more what I describe as an anodized red color, and it's a little bit more toned down than this red right here is. Both of the red options do still keep the carbon fiber design though, so you aren't looking at just a flat colored vinyl piece. The carbon fiber design means that the vinyl is actually raised, and you can feel a little bit of texture here. The two red kits are slightly more expensive than the standard carbon fiber kit, and they're going to cost just over $100. The standard carbon fiber is currently about $15 less, if you'd prefer that option instead. So there are different types of vinyl, and this kit's made from a wrapping cast vinyl. It's a four mil vinyl, that's more durable compared to other vinyl, like calendered vinyl film, which is actually thinner. This type of vinyl is designed to hold up years, even in outdoor weather, so you don't have to worry about whether or not it's going to hold up in your interior. Another feature this vinyl has is air release technology. This is on the adhesive side of the vinyl, and it's not a feature that all vinyl has. And what this means is that there are miniature air channels on the adhesive side of the vinyl. These air channels give air that's under the vinyl a way out from underneath, so the air can easily be squeezed out. So this means a bubble-free install and wrinkle-free surface, and it's going to be especially nice for the larger dash pieces of this kit, where it would be a real downer to have any wrinkle or an uneven surface in the vinyl. So there are a lot of pieces to this kit, including all of the vent and gauge trim, no matter if you have a performance package or a GT350, or a non-performance S550, since they are slightly different. The kit includes an option for both, so you don't have to worry about selecting another kit or getting the right one. It's also going to have all of the trim pieces, from the door trim, to the instrument bezel trim, to the small places like the headlight switch trim, so everything's going to match after the kit is installed.The install here is not going to be difficult, and I'd say that anyone can complete it, even though it can be a little tricky, and is a little time consuming. It also requires a little bit of patience, because you're really going to want to take your time and lay the vinyl nicely. Another thing to keep in mind here that I noticed, is that this vinyl does scratch easily, so when you go to do the install, that's all the more reason to be a little bit more careful. And you're not going to want to install this kit in the direct sunlight either. You will need a spray bottle with a light soap and water mixture, a hair dryer, something to clean the dash surface with, and a hand towel, like a microfiber. Now just like laying vinyl on the exterior, you're going to want to start by prepping the surface well so that the vinyl can adhere. You can pretty much start with any piece of this kit that you want to, I just recommend starting with some of the smaller pieces, especially if you haven't done anything like this before. All you really have to do is lay a light mist on the adhesive side of the vinyl. You don't want to soak the vinyl at all. This mist is going to help you position the vinyl correctly once you lay it down, so you can really lay it perfectly. Once it's in the best position, just use your finger to smooth out the vinyl, and use the towel to wipe away any excess moisture that you get out from underneath the piece. This alone should be all you need for the smaller trim pieces, but you're going to want a hair dryer for the larger pieces of the kit, that you're trying to get to conform to the surface. Just be careful not to overheat the vinyl, because you don't want it to wrinkle. And when it comes to the largest dash piece of the kit, it would make things a lot easier if you have a helping hand to get the piece straight and on the dash quickly. Overall, you're looking at a one out of three wrenches on the scale, and about an hour's time to get the install completed.Wrapping things up here with the carbon fiber dash kit, this is a vinyl kit that has a carbon fiber design and a texture as well. You have a few different color options including a bright red, an aluminized red, and a standard carbon fiber option. The kit includes everything you'll need for the entire dash, no matter what model S550 you have, and it's easy to install. You can check these kits out more online, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Not what I expected
These are sticker vinyls and not the plastic replacements I thought they were. Parts looks tacky and some parts look good. I should have made the connection and read the description. Had a professional window tinter install them also, still looks tacky.Helpful (0)

Looks Amazing but Take Your Time Installing
Prior to buying, I read a number of reviews which were critical of how well the fit was for the carbon fiber dash kit. If you take your time and line things up properly everything fits perfectly. If you rush the process it's going to look bad and though it does not fit.Helpful (0)

Worked great. Only complaint is that it was slightly smaller than the factory black carbon trim that my car already had so it didn't cover it fully. Still looks good tho and really helped add some color to my all black interior.Helpful (0)

does this fit Right Hand Drive
This Carbon Fiber Dash Kit unfortunately does not fit a right hand drive vehicle.
I have the grabber blue mustang color. Will this match that?
The dash kit will be more of a darker shade blue and will not be a direct match with the Grabber Blue color.
Hey I want to buy these now but I’m not getting my mustang for another few months, is it ok to buy this and leave it in the box for a few months then instal or will that effect how good it stays on
The product should be fine staying on the paper for some time. They can dry out if not taken care of.
Read a handful of 1-star reviews saying the cuts were off, has this been fixed and is magnetic metallic the carbon fiber? Thanks!
magnetic metallic is the color of the carbon fiber yes. We have unfortunately had a few with trouble with the cuts, however this is a very popular item, and we generally do not have that issue!
Does this have a glossy or matte finish?
This is closer to a glossy finish.
As long as you have any stock 15-19 Mustang, this will come with everything needed for a proper fit. It comes with multiple templates to choose from, so in the end you'll just have a couple pieces that aren't used.
As long as you do not have a right hand drive Mustang, this Carbon Fiber Style Dash Overlay Kit is designed to fit all 2015-2019 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, EcoBoost and Shelby GT350 models.
The color of the dash kit will be closer to the Race Red color.
The American muscle Dash kits are shipped rolled up in a single package. The package measures 24.5" x 4" x 4" (L x W x H).
This dash kit will have a similar carbon fiber look to the coin tray and switch covers.
When installing the American Muscle Graphics Carbon Fiber Dash Kit, it is recommended to use a soap and water mix of 4 large drops per 32 oz. spray bottle of water.
We do not offer just the center dashboard portion for purchase. With that being said, please reach out directly to our customer service department via our live chat feature, email at support@AmericanMuscle.com, or by calling 1-855-209-8876 we would be glad to help assist you with this issue and see what we can do for you here!
This will work with all 15-19 Mustang models. The color will be a lighter blue when compared to the Kona Blue.
