    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

        • 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

        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.

        Helpful (3)

        Does this come in any other colors? Can I request a color if possible?

        • At this time, we currently only offer the door insert covers in black or red.

        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.

            Tuff install

            If you have upholstery experience this is a pretty straight forward install. If not, do the passenger side first... you learn a lot doing the first one. We were 2 seconds from calling it quits and getting them done at a shop. The passenger side was tuff, you don’t know how to trim and not leave too much or too little. Or making sure the blue tape is not anywhere you want glue. In the end they look great, we know the imperfections... most people wouldn’t but still I would never do this again. It is a small job, but unless you have good skills, let the upholstery guys do it and save yourself a few hours of frustration.

            My 05 GT’s door inserts were falling down and after many attempts to get it to stay up. I went and got these new inserts and am very satisfied with how they came out. Don’t cost a whole lot and change the whole look of your door

            This is not an easy install. One wrong move and your money is wasted. I used a razer blade and made a bad cut. All my money went in the trash. Just pay someone to do this project.

            Red Door inserts

            These door inserts are Italian leather, very nice quality to work with. Love that they are precut to fit your door . Only down fall is you have to do alot of trimming prior to install. Other than that , they are very impressive

            Great value

            I bought these to replace my son's sagging door panels on his 2006 special edition mustang. They are way better than the original material! Being real leather and oversized to make it easy for trimming, they fit so much better once installed. The material is easy to work with and fits like a glove. I would definitely buy this product again.

            Nice finished appearance

            This project took a little more time than I anticipated. In order to get satisfactory results you must take your time. The most difficult part is removing the originally padding behind the factory vinyl trim. After peeling the old stuff off, I used a small grinding wheel to get the old glue off. I also used a small plastic putty knife to tuck the edges along the perimeter while using a razor. Finally, i used 1/4 vinyl welt to trim out the edges for a more finished appearance.

            This takes about a day if you have other priorities. The prep work takes a lot of time having to remove the door panels remove old glue, tape, then spray new glue. I used Gorilla glue spray adhesive and it worked great. You just have to work fast once you start spraying. I gave it 4 stars mostly because I wish it was trimmed a little better to save my door from the so so cutting job I had to do to trim the material after instal. Overall, if you put in the work, you'll be happy with the results.

            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.

            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.
