Hey, guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the Flush Mount Blade Spoiler in the unpainted finish, available for all 2015 and newer Mustangs. So, in this video, I'll be going over the styling and appearance, of course, of the Flush Mount Rear Spoiler, as well as its materials and construction. I'll top the video off with the install, which I'll let you know up front is going to be a very easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, because it applies simply with 3M automotive bonding tape.The factory-style Flush Mount Blade Rear Spoiler will, of course, be for any 2015 or newer Mustang owner who either wanna replace a damaged rear spoiler from the factory or did not pick up the performance pack S550, which didn't come with the rear spoiler from the factory line. So, this spoiler you see here is an exact replica of the OEM-style spoiler that comes from the factory directly from Ford on the S550s. Now, this one's gonna cater to the guys out there who need that OEM replacement, and it's gonna cater to the guys not looking for an exact aftermarket option, something that isn't too over the top, and wants to go with an OEM-style look.So, as you can see from the title, this is gonna sit completely flush up against your factory trunk lid, just like it's sitting flush on the table right now, leaving no spacing underneath it, exactly what the OEM spoiler is known for. Now, this is gonna be a perfect replacement for any damaged spoilers that took a hit during an accident and, of course, gives you the unpainted option right out of the box to get painted at your local custom paint shop.Now, since this one is an OEM replacement and a replica from the Ford factory, of course, it's gonna have some OEM quality materials. This is gonna be a one-piece blow-molded ABS plastic, a very common material among the aftermarket parts and, of course, directly from Ford's factory line. Now, with that said, again, it comes unpainted right out of the box, a perfect material to get painted at a local paint shop, so you can get this one custom paint matched to your factory OEM spec or any color of your choosing.As far as the price tag goes for the flush mount factory-style blade rear spoiler, this one is gonna run you just about $250, not a terrible price tag in my personal opinion. If you were trying to get this directly from Ford as a factory replacement, you'd be paying a hell of a lot more than you would be for the $250 one we have here, so, of course, that itself is a steal. Now, on top of that, if you're taking it to a local custom paint shop to get it custom painted, you wanna tack that cost on top of that, so the price can rise a bit, depending on how you take it out of the box. Now, on top of that, for the guys and girls out there looking to get an aftermarket spoiler, you can get something a lot more aggressive than this, a lot more unique than this for just about $100 more. So, it comes down to exactly what you're looking for out of a rear spoiler on your S550.Shifting gears over to the install portion of the video, like I said in the very beginning, this one's gonna be easy enough for anybody to take care of with about 30 minutes or so in the driveway at home, which is why it gets a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. To kick things off, you won't even need any custom hand tools. All you'll need is the alcohol wipes and adhesion promoter provided for you in the kit. Take the alcohol wipes and clean off the entire factory trunk lid exactly where you'll be applying the spoiler. Peel off the 3M automotive tape backing you see pre-applied to the back of the rear spoiler. Once you peel off the backing there, use the adhesion promoter and, of course, stick it right into place, putting down pressure all around the spoiler. This way, it gets a good bonding and doesn't come off until you want it to. Overall, about 30 minutes or so in the driveway at home and a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.Just to wrap up this overview and install, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer Mustang and you're looking to pick up an OEM-style rear spoiler, that flush mount design, to replace a damaged one in an accident, or if you didn't get the performance pack and you just wanna complete that OEM look, you might wanna check out the factory-style Flush Mount Blade Spoiler, which, of course, is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Great look, fit not so.
I love the look; it's as if Ford designed it. Not too aggressive, but definitely more noticeable than the factory one. This is a heavy and very well made product I just did not trust the 3M tape only and bolted it on. Also the right forward portion of the spoiler didn't make contact with my trunk no matter the slight variance in placements I tried.Helpful (7)

Does Item 387349 fit my Mustang 2016 GT Convertible?
Yes, this will fit your convertible.
What color does it come in?
The SpeedForm Factory Style Flush Mount Blade Spoiler will come unpainted. This will require painting as the plastic is not UV resistant and will fade if not painted.
Will this item fit my 2018 Mustang GT Convertible with the flat flush mount style factory spoiler?
Yes, it is compatible with your vehicle.
Is it okay of it only installed by 3M tape?
Hey, YinuoWT5U3785684 3M tape will absolutely be enough.
So the page states that the install is 3M tape only but the video show him drilling the trunk lid prior to install. So which is it?
I'm sorry for the confusion, the video is just showing that if you felt inclined to bolt this SpeedForm Factory Style Flush Mount Blade Spoiler in, you can drill it out from the bottom to line up the holes. However for ease of installation for a matched appearance, all you have to do is stick it on using the supplied pre-attached 3M double-sided automotive bonding tape.
We apologize for the confusion. This spoiler will not require any drilling and will install with 3M bonding tape. This spoiler will cover the existing holes that would be left by the Factory spoiler. You may be able to screw in this spoiler, however, that would be entirely custom due to the spoiler being designed to be taped on.
This SpeedForm Factory Style Flush Mount Blade Spoiler will fit absolutely fit UK models.
The tape on the SpeedForm Factory Style Flush Mount Blade Spoiler will have no issues withstanding temperatures in this range. This is the same tape that is used on all of our hoodscoops as well, which will be subjected to high ambient temps, and high engine temps, which this can withstand easily.
According to 3M and their Wind Load Structural test, the sustained wind speed that the bonding tape can withstand is approximately 155mph. Source: 3M Structural Performance Tests of VHB™ Tapes in Architectural Metal Panels
