    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.

    What type glue is used

    michael

    • 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?

    PaulR

    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

    Eddie90

    • 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.

      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.

      Non Duplicate material

      Unfortunatly the material in this kit is not an exact duplicate of the material used by Ford. The OEM Vinyl material has perforated little diamond shapes. The material in this kit is a grainy leather material without the foam backing. I had a local trim shop inform me that leather is not a good material for the weather in Indiana especially for a convertible. I sent a sample of the OEM material to American Muscle so they can see what the OEM replacement should look like. I ended up going with similiar material available from the trim shop.

      Leather covers

      The material is real good. I don't know about the fit yet as they haven't been installed yet. On a call to you we were informed that the best results for install would be between 60 and 70 degrees but since we won't get those temps back till late March or April, we'll wait till then. Since these are do-it-yourself items I think they would sell just as well at $20.00 less giving room to buy the 3M glue.

      Easy to Install

      These look harder to install but in reality they are fairly easy. I took my time and started from the bottom and work my way up. After the glue dried I trimmed around the edges and was done.

      Simi okay for DIY novice.

      These are okay for replacing door panels on the 07's. I removed the old backing from the panels that kind of acts as noise, heat barrier. - star The hardest part was the tuck and trim at gap.- star Make sure to have good tools, to do the job. I'd like to have seen just a hair more material edge to edge, on the product for being pre trimmed, the placement is close, and tight in a couple of spots, the material will stretch a bit, its just faux leather. -star For price, - star, If next time, I would pay someone to install material, or buy my own material. Kept old panels for templates, and would have extra material for mistakes. Over all the product looks good except for a couple of my own mistakes trimming the gap tuck on the first one that are barely noticeable. For the DIY novice your second install might come out better than the first. : )

      Door Insert Covers

      After the original OEM covers started deteriorating and falling down, I started looking for options. Since I do show my modified '06 Mustang GT at national MCA shows across the country, I wanted something that with improved quality. These were the answer. Plus, they were less than an uppostery shop wanted to make them. They look great (better than OEM) and several people have asked where I got them. Even the uppostery shop asked and said the fit was spot on.

      Over priced, low quality, different shapes

      American Muscle ALWAYS pulls through for me but with this product, just "no". I opened the package, both were cut differently (not even close to exact fit), the material is not worth $159 and the driver side had a crease in it. I continued on, taking my door panel off, sanding, etc etc. (I've worked in a garage for 12 years so I know how to do this stuff) but when it came time to apply, it sat unevenly on my door panel, there wasn't enough excess material to "cut" or tuck for that matter and every time I DID tuck it into one area, the other side came out! I asked two friends from two different body shops and a local body shop who I never worked with before and my friends told me "The material is over priced we would've done that for you for less than $159" and the owner of the local body shop told me, "I could've fiber glassed the door panel for you for cheaper." It's nothing against American Muscle, I've worked with them since 2007 and I will certainly continue to support and buy from them, but this product...LOL NOT WORTH $159.
