            When I order from American Muscle I come to expect quality the far surpasses any of the chain-brand garbage. OPR is what comes to mind when I'm re-overhauling top to bottom my Mustang. -Thanks

            Nice finishing touch

            This part clipped right into place without any modifications. This part along with the new window moldings that I also purchased from American Muscle provided a nice finishing touch to my paint job. I highly recommend this piece to complete a project.

            Does not fit at all!

            Like many others, mine was falling apart so I figured I'd get one to replace it. Unlike the other vendor, it came straight, which was awesome. Now the problems: I'm not sure what other Mustangs out there have, but these do not just clip on and call it a day. The clips line up, but the teeth are too short and too wide to fit into my firewall for some reason, while many others say "easy! clips right on!" If you play with it for too long the clips will fall off and superglue can't keep them together. I'm not sure if it's the product or just my car because I tried ordering from another vendor and ended up with the exact same result. 3 out of 3 as of now, I'm at that point where I'm just going to not install one because I threw $60 away for these.

            Would recommend buying else where

            I couldn't get the original seal out so I just ended up ripping it off. I couldn't install it either by myself you have to have some really strong man hands to push these suckers in and you want to be careful the clips on them come off easily so my dad and I had to do some ol southern engineering with the old clips and install them onto the new sealer...from the looks of the original sealer to the replacement sealer the original looks like the clips go further through the sealer the replacements look like they're barely pushed through or as if they're machined which either way u want to consider buying else where unless u feel like doing some southern engineering

            Nicest version of this product!

            Everybody who buys this piece knows that its gonna come rolled up for shipping and tabs are going to break. Well rest assured. This one comes laid flat out when shipped and the tabs are not weak from being rolled!

            cowl weatherstrip

            Was great to see my package arrive but it looked to small to have a cowl weather strip .but no it's in a small package followed in half, really. Ok so it straightened out, now to install,I had to trim strip at both ends to fit correctly by hood hinges. While installing strip 2 clips that hold strip to cowl came loose and fell off, not good.. well not worth the price. Finally got it installed looking good!!

            Nice replacement

            Nice replacement. Looks good. You have to play around with it a little to fit correctly. The last clip on the passenger side won't go in all the way and keeps popping out. You can hear it rattling when the engine is running. Otherwise, this is a nice piece to clean up under the hood.

            Easy to install. Makes the area look much better. Pull off the old one new clips are already attached. Clip back in place and you are done. A must if you want you mustang to look clean under the hood!!!
