Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, here with the CDC Outlaw Rear Spoiler, for all 2015 and up S550 Mustangs. In this video, we're gonna talk about a few different topics when it comes to this rear spoiler. We're gonna talk about the materials and construction and the install as well. Of course I'm going to get into more detail later on here, but I can tell you right now that this rear spoiler is going to be a one out of three wrenches, if your car came with a rear spoiler from the factory, and a two out of three wrenches if it did not. I'll say right now that this is obviously an unpainted spoiler, so it's not gonna look that great right now sitting here on the table with me. This is how the spoiler is gonna ship to you as well, so don't expect a finished piece right out of the box. This is gonna need a visit to the body shop, and have some prep and paint work done to it in order for it to look show ready. The CDC Outlaw Rear Spoiler is gonna be a good option for those S550 owners out there that are looking for one of the most aggressive spoilers. This isn't really for someone looking to make a subtle statement. The spoiler's up there with the likes of the MMD V Series spoiler, and so it's gonna be one of the most dramatic that you can currently find. I consider the spoiler a statement piece. It isn't subtle and it's gonna make a big difference in the looks department. It's one of the tallest spoilers you can get your hands on in this point in time, and it's going to add some booty to the S550. CDC designed this spoiler to have some dimension to it, and you can see how thick it is. It doesn't just sit on top of the deck lid, but it continues over the deck lid line here, on the sides and around the back here as well. This gives the spoiler a heartier look, in my opinion. And you can see that the spoiler has this notched out section here, and CDC did that to give you a little bit more visibility, since, like I said, this is an aggressive spoiler that's quite tall. The notched out portion gives you a little area to view over since you are going to notice this thing on the back of your car in your rear view mirror. And CDC has worked this notch into the complete design of the spoiler, works its way around the bottom and the back. As far as material, this is made from an ABS material, which is both lightweight and highly durable. A lot of exterior pieces are made from this material so to hold up against the elements and because it has impact resistance. This is designed to reuse the existing holes that the factory spoiler will leave behind in the deck lid. If your model did not come with the stock wing or you have a convertible, you are looking at some drilling here. That would be the only downside with this spoiler. But you're looking at drilling anyway if you want a spoiler and your car didn't come with one.This spoiler will come with a template that will show you where to drill. And as far as convertibles, the holes for the factory wing are in different spots, so you'll not be able to reuse those for the spoiler. Another thing to consider with the convertible models is the fact that the spoiler is so tall that it may come into contact with the factory antenna when the trunk is open. That's not really a big deal, in my opinion. You aren't gonna break anything. I just wanted to give you guys a little heads up on the contact. As far as price, this spoiler costs over $300 but it's less than $350. Like I said earlier, it's going to come unpainted like you see it here, so you would need to have it prepped and painted yourself. That being said, it's going to come in raw form, so don't be discouraged if it doesn't look like a gem right out of the box. That's where the prep work will come into play. I'd just make sure to test for this spoiler before you have it painted and installed, just to make sure you like the look and the fit. So the install here is overall not difficult, but if you're looking at having to drill, it's obviously going to be a little bit harder. You can always have the body shop install this for you, but if you're looking at doing this yourself, an extra set of hands is a good idea. If you have to drill, just use the template and take your time. We're gonna call this a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, but only for those that need to drill. If you don't have to drill, it's a one out of three and will take two hours. The spoiler does install with both hardware and 3M tape, so you're going to want the paint as clean as possible. There's some alcohol prep pads to help you clean and adhesion promoter to help create a good bond between the 3M and the paint. That paired with the bolts in the washers will keep the spoiler in place. Wrapping things up here, the CDC Outlaw Spoiler is an aggressive rear spoiler that comes unpainted, and it uses the factory Fastback Rear Wing Bolt holes. Some models may need a drill for the install, and the spoiler also installs with 3M tape and it costs a little over $300. You can check this out more online, and for all things mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

Love the design, but that's about it.
This spoiler looks very good when done, but 'oh boy' was it a headache... Unlike the pics, it was a beige ABS plastic with multiple scratches on it (was used as a cutting board maybe?). I got quoted from two shops near me between $400-$500 to prep, prime, and paint due to the sub-par quality (cheap toy plastic; hollow). I read previous low reviews (I can attest to their accuracy), but I stuck with it cause there is no other spoiler out there that looks like this. The painter mentioned that the material is quite porous and made painting more difficult. I bought this during Black Friday, but I would have ended up spending less by buying a pre-painted part. The bolts in the holes of the spoiler needed to be reinforced with resin so there won't be an issue to remove the spoiler in the future. The new holes I made in my convertible trunk were easy to do, but you can tell this spoiler was made for the fastback and some areas needed quite a bit of work to be flush with the trunk. I would only recommend this spoiler if money, fit and quality aren't a big deal to you and if you are painting it yourself. Specific to convertibles, you can't see the spoiler in your review mirror with top up or down. My local shop did a great job making it look showroom ready. I just wish I didn't have to spend almost twice as much as a pre-painted spoiler from the whole ordeal.Helpful (1)

Toy grade plastic
AM Customer service was excellent and I already returned item. In regards to the spoiler, it was so light, when the box arrived I thought it was empty. Opened item and spoiler was inside, but made from very flimsy plastic, yes flimsy plastic like on a cheap toy at Walmart- in many areas the plastic will flex in excess of 1/4 inch. Trusted body shop urged me to find something else due to structural integrity concerns.Helpful (4)

Did not cover factory spoiler holes!
Love the look of the spoiler and no real issues other than CDC should have tested all scenarios to inform buyers that it does not cover factory bolt hole as they show about 1/8 to 1/16th of an inch. I now have to pay even more to the body shop to paint the spoiler and now fix the deck lid as well. Not happy as CDC could have made the spoiler a touch larger to cover holes.Helpful (10)

Perfect fit and easy to install on my base GT didn’t have to do any drilling. Most of the time was spent on cleaning up the old tape from my car.Helpful (7)

Great aggressive look
Fits perfect. Just had to open the holes a little so it fits perfectly center on the trunk lid. Follows the lines of the car perfectly and give a great aggressive look. It’s not to big and not to small. Had to take the stock spoiler off and that was the most time consuming because you have to clean off all the old double face tape from the trunk. Better to line up the new spoiler on the trunk to where you want it then check where the holes are that you have to use and if needed open up the wholes a little wider. Just use a bigger washer than what came with the spoiler.Helpful (8)

Great looking spoiler
Love the looks of the spoiler, probably the second best looking one out there - if you had a spoiler stock than this is your best option because it covers/uses the existing bolt holes. It comes in pretty rough shape so it needs a lot of work so of you're painting yourself you have a couple hours of prep. I would buy it again. Install took 20mins including cleaning, painting was a 4 day job in my garageHelpful (6)

Rear spoiler worked great
Rear spoiler lined up good with original mounting holes. Old spoiler takes a little work removing but once removed installed in about 30 minutes.Helpful (6)

CDC Outlaw Rear Spoiler
Looks GREAT but has a couple of flaws. 1st, spoiler came a little rough, could be sanded down a little better. 2nd, spoiler is not uniform all the way through, has some dips at some spots. 3rd, holes on spoiler are not lining up with factory holes, not that bad of a fix though. 4th, spoiler does not hug and sit perfect with trunk, has a gap about 1/4"-1/2", not too noticeable unless you look closely, which I did. 5th, wish they offered a painted version at A.M.Helpful (8)
What's the weight of it?
The CDC Outlaw Rear Spoiler - Unpainted (15-17 All) will weight about 8 lbs boxed and ready to ship.
Will it cover the holes when removing the factory spoiler?
Hello! The CDC Outlaw Rear Spoiler reuses the factory spoiler holes, so they will not be visible.
Will it block the brake light on a Convertible's trunk?
The CDC Outlaw Rear Spoiler - Unpainted (15-17 All) will not block the brake light on the convertible's trunk as it the spoiler will have an opening for the brake light. It will however slightly obstruct the brake light from view if looking from a higher angle.
is that black color or red ？
This spoiler is going to come unpainted. It will have a black appearance to it because of the ABS construction. You will have to get this painted.
Mine has the Performance package with the spoiler delete so there are no previous holes. How then would it attach?
Since the CDC Outlaw Rear Spoiler is designed to use the existing holes left my the factory fastback wing, holes would have to be drilled, or you would need to acquire a trunk lid with those holes.
It will depend if you have a Fastback/Coupe or Convertible. If you have a Fastback/Coupe it will re-use the factory holes. However if you have a Convertible with a factory spoiler, you will need to drill into the decklid for installation.
