Review & Install Video
What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and this is my quick review and breakdown of the black carbon fiber door pillar accents, fitting your 2015 through current F-150 SuperCab and SuperCrew. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who these may appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this kit, what you should expect to be spending, and then last but not least, we'll take a very quick look at the installation, where you're gonna be looking at a super easy one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour to get these onto your truck. So this kit should appeal to any 2015 or newer F-150 owner that's gonna be looking for a very quick to install and inexpensive modification, that I'll hit on later, or if you're just looking to protect your door pillar from any type of swirls, scratches, or grease that's gonna be coming off of your fingers when you're closing your door.
So I can't tell you how quickly the pillars on my own personal F-150 started to show a little bit of signs of wear and tear only after a few miles of driving it. Now this was pretty much based due to the fact that every time I'm closing my door, I'm usually shutting it by the pillar, and most, if not all times, my hands usually aren't on the cleanest side. So what that essentially means is that grease and anything else that's coming off of your hands, gonna be touching your door pillars, and they're gonna get scratched up, greasy, as well as hazing over time.
The great thing about this product is that you're gonna be creating a layer in between the pillar and your hand so that when you're shutting your door, it's not gonna be picking up anything that's coming off of your fingertips. Now again, the great thing about this is that you are going to be creating a layer between your hand and your pillars. Not only that, you're gonna be getting away with some pretty cool looks. Now, this kit I have here in front of me today is gonna be the carbon fiber kit. If that's not gonna be something that you're after, make sure to check out some of the other options on the website, where we're gonna have a brush finish as well as a matte black finish. But either way, I think these are gonna complement the lines on the F-150 pretty nicely, as well as meshing with both light and dark colors.
So in terms of the construction and materials of this kit, this is gonna be designed, manufactured and printed in-house only a few feet from where I'm standing. And if you're unfamiliar with AmericanMuscle's graphics, we take a huge amount of pride in what we do here. So the greatest thing about this material is that this is gonna typically be used to wrap high-end exotic cars, and it's gonna be something that's gonna be durable, as well as last at least up to eight years. Taking a closer look, specifically, this is gonna be a four-mil cast construction, which is also gonna feature a clear-coat protective layer. And last but not least, this is also going to have a special air release technology, which essentially means that they're gonna have porous pockets on the adhesive side, which means that it's gonna give you a very painless installation, which we'll take a look at later.
Something that I definitely like about our products is that we design, manufacture, and print everything in-house here. Not only that, we test them on all of our fleet cars to ensure that you're gonna have a precise fit every time. Not only that, we're gonna have these rated at up to eight years of use, so you can rest easy knowing that you're not gonna run into any issues with this material fading over time.
So in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending only about 20 bucks on this kit, which in my opinion, is a steal if you're looking to add an extra layer of protection on your pillars. Again, you're gonna be getting away with a very high-quality vinyl material, something that's gonna be used on higher-end exotic cars, which is not only gonna look
The factory door pillar posts on the F-150 is known to get scratches and swirl marks over time, instead of trying to clean and polish them out, cover them up with a set of AmericanTrucks Graphics Black Carbon Fiber Door Pillar Accents. These accent decals are designed to be applied over top of the factory door pillar posts, which will hide those ugly marks in the finish. On top of it all, the black carbon fiber color will add an extra level of eye catching detail to your truck.Wrapping Cast Vinyl.

Making it far more durable when compared to other products that were designed with thinner calendared vinyl film which starts to degrade in just a couple of years!Air Release Technology.
Air Release Technology features miniature air channels on the adhesive side of the vinyl. This allows air to easily be squeezed out from under for a bubble-free installation and a smooth wrinkle-free surface.Perfect Fit Guaranteed.
