Review & Installation Video

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.

    Sleek

    My old factory door panels were peeling off, as Texas heat isn't great for leather specially with the top down, after multiple attempts of trying to keep the door old panels on, I figured I get new one and these are definitely far better quality. Very sleek and a must for improving or restoring the interior. Great look and a great price I asked around and just for making a custom fit door panel most shops wanted ~$300. Overall very happy with my purchase/upgrade.

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

    These Look GREAT!

    I purchased my 2006 Mutang used and it was missing the red driver side insert and the passenger side was sagging. I purchased these covers and they turned out great (see photo I uploaded). My word of advice is to TAKE YOUR TIME installing these! There will be excess leather that has to be trimmed. Take your time trimming and use a new razor blade. 3M Super 77 spray adhesive worked really well. Just be sure to mask off the plastic to keep the adhesive from going where you don't want it to go. To trim the inserts I used a PVC welt/piping around the perimeter which also helped set them off.

    Not to impressed

    They were cut so close to size they were almost to small to install. Then the upholstery shop that installed tem asked how much i paid. When i told him he laughed and said i could have bought a whole hyde for the same price. They look good. But way over priced and cut so close they almost did not fit! If you need them replaced i recommend just going to your local upholstery shop. It will be cheaper

    Refreshed my ride!

    I ordered these to replace my old inserts that, like everyone else who lives in Texas, peeled off because the originals could not withstand the heat. The first door took me while, but I did the second door in half an hour. Installed they look better than the originals. I am very pleased with the look of these.

    High Quality Product!

    This turned out to be an awesome, high quality product. It took a lot more time than I had anticipated to complete the install correctly. Most of the time was spent sanding and prepping the door after scrapping off the OEM insert. But all of the work and time was worth it! Totally changes/improves the interior!

    A necessary evil

    This plague that inflicts the door panels of 2005-2009 Mustangs is a giant eyesore that drove me crazy. My 2007 GT 500 is my project car, so I couldn’t stand by ideally and let the door inserts just hang in the hot Texas sun. I ordered these insets after months of repairing the OEM inserts. I became quite proficient at gluing door panels. The process was easy, but the prep proved to be difficult. The felt door liner is difficult to tear off and required quite a bit of adhesive remover and Dremel work, but once completed I thought that the reset of the process would be a snap. The problem that I ran into was the inconsistency of the NEW Door inserts. My passenger side door is perfect, the adhesive stuck to it, it cut perfect, and no problems. The driver’s side door material was not manufactured correctly, the surface vinyl that covers the suede/leather pulled away from the base. Once it was adhered and cut into place the top separated. This left the top floating and the side pulled up from the cut exposing the suede backing on the door grooves. I believe I just got a bad cut of leather. It is labor intensive and it looks ok until you look closer, so I’m waiting until my OCD kicks in to repair it.

    Requires trimming but quality leather

    Quality product but comes oversized, and due to the nature of the door setup, even with removing the panel from the door, installation was much more difficult than anticipated. Pleased overall, but would never choose to do it again.

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

    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.

    Good quality but overpriced

    When I received the door liners I was surprised at how little material was received for the price I paid. I could have made my own template out of butcher paper and bought the leather locally for a fraction of the price. There must be a 1000 mark up on this material.

    Door panels make the difference

    Material takes a little time to install if you have one of the panels from your door that you are removing you can see where you will need to Cubans shape the material to properly tuck into the door itself. I used gasket sealer as the adhesive and it tired out perfect.

    Tough fit

    At the time of the purchase, I was under the impression these were a more exact fit. I had to take the door panel off, and cut the leather with a razor to get the material to fit. Still, wasn't a very difficult task to compete and only took the afternoon. Looks good with the tan interior of a gtcs.

    This was the first time I have ever even attempted to do upholstery so I basically dove in head first. But, even having no experience it turned out looking great only because I was very, very patient with it. Take your time and pay attention to detail and they will turn out great.

    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.
