Hey, everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com, and this is gonna be my detailed breakdown and install of the Distressed Flag Quarter Window Decals, available for your 2015 and newer Mustang. Now, this certainly isn't going to be one of my longest videos I've ever shot, but I do plan on talking about the styling, the matte black option will deliver to your S550 Mustang. We'll briefly touch on the materials and construction if you can call it that with these things, and then last not least, we'll give you a brief little overview of the installation. And on the surface, you're really not looking at anything too crazy here, peel and stick job, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with a little bit more detail later on.So, who is this gonna be for? Well, I'd say for any S550 owner out there looking to show their patriotic pride through a rather subtle matte black quarter window decal, and not go over the top hacks all Jim Duggan style. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course, the man is a true American hero and one hell of a wrestler, but that's neither here nor there. But in all seriousness, here again, the Distressed Flag Quarter Window Decals from American Muscle Graphics have been extremely popular ever since their initial release, and it's pretty easy to see why. Now, I know it's hard to get a feel for 'em on the table here of course, but once they're installed, they really do blend in nicely to the quarter window area on the S550 and is just a great way to show your love for this awesome country. It's also setup be a great alternative to those more expensive quarter window scoops or louvers while still maintaining some visibility out of those quarter windows. With all that said, the customer submitted images, in addition to the installed footage that we're showing you right now, hopefully, will give you a better idea of what to expect when these guys are actually installed onto your ride. And as always, I encourage you guys to check out those customers' submitted images, it's always gonna give you a better feel for how the product might look on your very own ride. Now, just like any other American Muscle Graphics design, each one of these pieces have been tested, tweaked and redesigned, to fit your quarter windows perfectly just to ensure a perfect fit once these things arrive to you. And that will be evident of course the moment you go to install these things for the very first time, you'll notice the dimensions and the shape fit the quarter windows perfectly. Now, as far as materials, you are looking at a 3M premium cast vinyl in matte black, and it has been designed to last several years on your ride. It also features what they call air release technology. So, basically, if you were to flip this over and look at it with a magnifying glass, you'd see all these tiny little lines. And that's just gonna help you release any possible bubbles after the installation is done. And speaking of the installation, this one shouldn't test you too much guys. Really, it's a peel and stick job as long as you take your time. So, I'm sticking with one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, 30 minutes to an hour and I say that because I don't want you to rush this one. I have seen some concerns in the customer review section, people have had some small difficulties here, but I'm telling you to take your time, make sure you follow these detailed instructions from the American Muscle Graphics team. Now, I will say one of the biggest issues I've seen people having in the customer review section is that, they have problems removing the backing tape from the transfer tape and the vinyl decal stick in the both backing tape and both the transfer tape which you don't want. You want everything to be removed in one piece and stick to the transfer tape, it's very important. So, a good way to ensure this happens in that, you don't have a vinyl snafu, is that you grab your included squeegee here start at the middle of the graphic and then just kind of push on the design working from the center to the outside. Just really giving it some pressure to ensure that that vinyl design is gonna actually stick to the transfer tape. This way, it won't start peeling off on you for the backing tape, and will make your install go a lot easier. So trust me, use that method guys, and it should help you along the way. But ultimately gang, just follow these included instructions, they're really gonna help you along the way. Clean the area first using Windex or something similar, use a spray lubricant such as a soap and water mixture to help position the vinyl in place, please, please, don't try to put this thing on without that because what's gonna happen is, it's gonna go on wrong, you're gonna try to peel it off and things just become a big old mess real quick. So, follow these instructions again, use the included squeegee and just take your time, let this set up, use a hair dryer to help it dry if you want, because ultimately that's gonna result in the best kind of outcome if you will. So, follow these instructions and you should be good to go.All right, wrapping things up here guys, yes I think the Distressed Flag Quarter Window Decal is an awesome way to show your patriotism for this beautiful country, whether you're served in the military or whether you haven't. And at 30 bucks it is gonna be more affordable than some of your other quarter window options on the site. So, that is my review of the Distressed Flag Decal which you can grab right here at americanmuscle.com.

It's an easy install if you cut close to the design before sticking the decal on the window. I don't have a steady hand and so I had some bubbles and creases. Great thing about the distress design is I cut out the mistakes I made and it still looks great! It will catch some attention as it is a unique way to look patriotic and cool.Helpful (0)

Need Flat Packaging
I was shocked when I saw this come in a cylinder tube.... Made installation arduous and caused the vinyl to come off wrong. I didn’t give up and got it to look decent. Overall great look but difficult install and poor packagin.Helpful (1)

One big flaw
The sticker looks absolutely awesome when on the car. The one flaw however, is significant. The adhesive on the sticker is not very strong and the thin edges on the sticker leave the sticker prone to accidental removal. The other reviews are true saying the sticker sticks to both sides of the papers but, this is easily avoidable if you take your time.Helpful (1)

Do not buy
If you are any type of a perfectionist, do not buy this! First off, it came crumbled up. Did my best to completely flatten it out, prior to applying. Was a pain to even get it to come off the paper with pieces not wanting to come off or lifting off the application side and then having to reposition the parts of the sticker that we’re lifting up or moving to get it to a point to apply it. Still ended up wrinkled on the window, then another 30 min removing it. Save your money.Helpful (1)
Hi I like really this, I tend to change my mind often. How are they to take off?
The Distressed Flag Quarter Window Decal can be taken off by peeling the decal from a corner. It will likely leave some residue, so we would recommend a low-solvency, glass-safe solvent to remove the residue.
Should I avoid automated car washes after installing this decal?
These Quarter Window Decals are printed on 3M Automotive Grade vinyl which is meant to hold up against all elements including high pressure water. It is highly recommended to manually wash to car to keep attention of the quarter window decal at a minimum to prevent and pressure stress on the decal.
will this work on a convertible windpw being as it goes down?
This is not compatible with convertible models.
Looking at the photos on line almost all cars show the decal filling the entire quarter window, but in the video it does not and there is a gap around it and doesn't look very good. Can you please confirm that the decal fills the entire quarter window
The decal will fill the entire window yes.
Will this fit a V6? What are the performance gains?
Yes, the American Muscle Graphics Matte Black Distressed Flag Quarter Window Decals will fit a V6 as long as its a 15-17 fastback model! Unfortunately this does not offer any performance agains but it does look pretty awesome!
This will work on tinted windows yes.
This Distressed Flag Quarter Window Decal in Matte Black is sold as a pair and makes for a perfect fit on any 2015-2018 Mustang Fastback, including the V6, EcoBoost, GT and GT350 models. This decal will not fit the convertible Mustangs due to the dimensions of the quarter window. The graphic will also become damaged when the rear quarter window drops in to the vehicle after the top is dropped.
Unfortunately, we only carry the American Muscle Graphics Matte Black Distressed Flag in the black we have pictured on the site currently.
This Distressed Flag Quarter Window Decal in Matte Black is sold as a pair and makes for a perfect fit on any 2015-2018 Mustang Fastback models only.

This is not offered for the 96 Mustangs.
This particular graphic is for a 15-17 Mustang. However, we do carry the same graphic for a 10-14 Mustang here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/distresed-flag-quarter-window-decal-matte-blk-1014all.html We also have an American Muscle Flag body decal here https://www.americanmuscle.com/am-battle-borne-side-graphic-package-coupe-0517all.html
The alternating stripes and the stars are open cuts on the vinyl, and you would be able to see through those areas.
The Street Scene Quarter Window Louvers will fit all 2015-2017 mustang fastbacks.
Unfortunately we currently only have the templates for these to be made for Mustangs.
