    Review & Install Video

    These Door Insert Covers are available for the early S197 owner who might be looking to pick up just a little bit of luxury for their interior, while also covering up any sagging or ripped door covers that came on the car from the factory. The install for these will be a little bit labor-intensive. It might require some just a little bit of know-how, so I'm giving it a two out three wrenches on our difficulty meter, which we'll talk a little bit more about later on. Obviously, around 10 years of use on your Mustang will pretty much wear out a couple of things on your body especially when it comes to the interior of your car, and the door panels are some of the first things to go. So this is a very straightforward restoration peace while also giving you just a little bit of upgrade when it comes to luxury since it is a black Italian leather. There are some other colors available, so you want to make sure you're picking up the one that matches your current interior, or if you're looking to switch things up, that's obviously your personal preference. As far as price is concerned, you can pick this setup for just around $150 mark. My personal opinion, a very affordable price tag considering Ford replacement parts are typically a pretty higher tag, and you're also upgrading to a nicer weather material here that will have a longer-lasting durability and a better feel to it over all. So, a lot of bang for your buck in this kit. The installation again is a very labor-intensive job here. You wanna have the better part of the toolbox available with a couple of hours worth of time on your hands. You'll have to take apart the door panels of course. You have to trim a little bit of the leather, so you want to have your cutting tools available. And the adhesive part, you wanna make sure you're getting properly because, well, gluing it on, you only have one shot at it. With that said, it is gonna be a two out of three wrenches on a difficulty meter here. You wanna have a couple hours on hand as well as the toolbox. If you're not too confident taking care of this one yourself, no shame handing it over to a professional to get done properly. The first thing that you need to do is pop off the corner cover by the A pillar. There's a bolt in the pocket on the door as well as behind the door handle inside the car. There are bolts around the edges of the door insert, then you can pop off the entire inner door panel. There's a few wiring connections you'll need to unplug before completely removing it from the vehicle. Pull off the stock door, insert cover, and use a flat head screwdriver or similar to pry off the adhesive backing that sticks to the door panel, and rip all the nasty stuff off. Pliers and heat gun should definitely help here as well. Tape all around the insert trim area, and use a sander to clean off the remaining adhesive on the area. Spring on the new adhesive on the door panel and the back of the insert cover, then apply it to the door panel. Use an exacto knife or similar to cut off the excess and tuck in everything else using a flat head screwdriver. Reconnect the wiring as needed and pop the door panel back on replacing all the bolts and trim pieces, then you're good to go. And that's just about does it for me, so if you're the owner of a 2005 to 2009 Mustang, you might wanna check out the door cover inserts in black which are available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    What type glue is used

    • The Alterum Door Insert Covers does not include any glue or adhesive. We suggest using some sort of spray fabric glue for proper adhesion. Though, we do recommend taking this to a shop for proper installation.

    My 2006 has all the fabric backing removed and just has the plastic showing. Will padding need to be added or can these be glued up directly to the plastic?

    • The Alterum Door Insert Covers are designed to be installed directly to the plastic. Further install details can be seen at the link below: https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/102217-cust.pdf

    I just got these in the mail. You guys recommend taking to an upholstery shop so I will get some quotes. But if I wanted to do it myself, what glue is recommended? I have a 3M spray from Home Depot labeled "90 Hi Strength" would this work

    • To install the Alterum Door Insert Covers we would recommend 3M Foam and Fabric adhesive, or a similar upholstery adhesive that can bond to both the insert, and the door panel.

    I was wondering if it was possible to purchase only the driver side insert? I purchased the pair a few years ago, but I need to replace the drivers side again.

    • Unfortunately these inserts are only available as a pair.

    Do you need to take to door panels off? Or can this be done by just peeling off the old inserts and replacing them.

    • No, alot of Mustangs do have peeling problems by nature so you can just peel it off. Make sure you have something thin to tuck in the edges.

      Just what these doors needed

      These panels are fantastic!! A very good quality leather, that fixed the terrible factory originals, which had peeled off the backing material. I had tried re-gluing the originals, and they held for about 1 year, but looked terrible. I was a little concerned at first, because gluing down the leather is such a permanent change, but my doors needed it. I followed the directions and watched the video for replacing them. I took quite a bit longer than most people would, especially with cleaning off the old glue, but I wanted them to be perfect. My car is a factory-ordered 2007 GT/CS with less than 12,000 miles and I try to keep it as nice as I can. When the original panels failed, this was the best fix I could find, and the results did not disappoint me at all. I highly recommend them if your panels need replacing.

      Review from Alterum Door Insert Covers - Red (05-09 All)

      Leather door insert replacement cover

      Like the product. Install time is a little longer than expected. This was my first ever attempt at doing this. Word of advice to others looking at this. Buy a wire wheel and clean the panel off really good. I thought I had it fairly clean but and residual glue or fabric left will show through. Product is good my install and prep needed to be better. Love the look though.

      Great replacement - but requires some meticulation

      I replaced the S197 original fail (faux leather) door inserts using these. The Inserts that came from American Muscle were beautiful black Italian leather, and after install, they look amazing. The down sides to them are that they are not an easy install. I am mechanically inclined (have rebuilt engines, replaced exhausts, done brake, suspension, and drive train work) so I though -> this will be a breeze... just place them over the doorpanel, do a little trimming, apply some adhesive, and stick them in. It is a lot more meticulous than that. Firstly -> even trying to get the fit before applying glue required a couple of meticulous cuts with a razor (or sharp scissors) to get it to lay appropriately. And then after that, trimming enough (but not too much) around the outside(s) so that you can push the edges into the groove with a screwdriver is not as straight forward as you would have hoped. Leave too much, and parts stick out of the groove, remove too much and you have spots where it won't seem to hold as well. I even compared it to the originals that came off, and tried using those as a guide, and it is not any more straightforward. They are great, but set aside some concentration time, and be ready to be meticulous. although you could try to get through it fast, I would set aside a whole day (I actually took a whole day for each side), in order to get the old adhesive/padding off, tape, grind, fit, etc...

      Research better

      Bought these and the red carbon fiber dash kit. Colors do not match. You can go to a local shop and buy the material thru them with a closer match to the dash kit Put the ones I purchased on a shelf and ordered from the the shop $150 installed.

      Door woes

      First off they need to send adhesive with the panels , there was to much material to trim in a lot of areas and not enough in some areas so they didn’t cover all the way.the drivers door did pretty good but my passenger door got a lot of wrinkles in it I would let professionals do it if it’s your first time like me , it took me all day Saturday to install them

      Great quality leather

      Very nice leather, good fit. I would encourage anyone to bring it to an upolstry shop to get it done professionally. The first one I installed I scuffed up the leather bad on the edges when tucking it in and cutting excess. The second install went much better, turned out better than the first but still isn't perfect. All together though the red looks great. Took me two afternoons bc the first install took longer than I planned

      Awesome

      After the stock door insert covers started to peel and come off the door. I had a professional install these red insert covers along with then modern Billet Satin Window Switch Plates w/ Mustang Lettering has made the interior look amazing! A must buy if needed but definitely get with the switch plates w/Mustang lettering.

      Door insert covers

      Material looked good. Quality is okay. Did not fit. For the price, you would think there would be a bit of excess material that would need to cut off. Stretching the material over the concave door panel would cause the same problem, loose/sagging door panels.

      Red leather door panel inserts

      Had it installed by an upholsterer for $100. Looks great. Doesn't exactly match the color of the red leather interior, probably due to wear and age of seats.

      Review from Alterum Door Insert Covers - Red (05-09 All)

      05 GT Intrior Alterum Door Inserts Covers

      I really like everything I have purchased from A/M I’m a big fan of this company. I usually don’t do reviews but I like A/M products and don’t think they should take the rap for Ford’s poor design choice or this companies attempt to provide a suitable replacement cover. You can tell the difference when they’re installed. They don’t match your interior. Drove me nuts. A/M is trying to provide cost effective alternative products to us motor heads. Sadly the Redfire interior door panel replacement covers don’t makeup for Ford’s poor original design and they do not look like the original material, (no perforations). The quality of these replacement covers is good but if you really want it to match your interior and want to spend about the same amount of money go to your local auto upholstery shop and have them install original material, then have them put a rolled edge around it to cover up the gap. This looks so much better than these covers and Ford’s poor original design. Hint: If the auto upholstery shop is trying to charge you a lot more than what these cost go to another shop. Don’t let them talk down to you! I ran into that at more than a few places. (Some upholstery shops think to much of themselves and that they are better than what they actually are.) I’ll try to post pictures if I can.
