Review & Install Video
Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, we're taking a look at the Chrome Door Sill Trim Inserts, which are available for all 2005 to 2009 Mustangs. In this quick video, we'll be talking about the styling and appearance of the Chrome Door Sill Trim Inserts as well as the material and construction. I'll top the video off with the installation, letting you know up front it'll get a very, very simple one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. The Chrome Door Sill Trim Inserts will be for any '05 to '09 Mustang owner who might be looking to get a more customized appearance for the interior of their S197. Now, for your early S197, you'd be attaching these directly on top of the factory door sill trim. Now, obviously, this gives you a more chrome, shiny appearance or a show car appearance, as some guys might call it. If you're not really a fan of the chrome, there's obviously tons of alternatives out there that are as affordable as this particular kit is. Honestly, there really isn't a whole lot to say about this particular kit. It's really all about styling and appearance here. It is gonna be a peel-and-stick application. This is definitely gonna be a more chrome, mirror-like shine appearance to your door sills. When you open up the doors, this is the first thing that's gonna smack you right in the face when you're hopping in the car. Now, obviously, it has the Mustang lettering cutouts, which are also available separately here. Now, on top of that, you just get a couple of details, a couple of chrome trim borderlines like this one here, so there is a couple of different pieces. And also, if you didn't really like some parts of the kit, since they're so separate, you can remove some, add some. Whatever you like to do, it does give you a more free range of customization with your current trim.This is obviously geared more toward the guys who are looking for the show-car-quality finish with an application that does not involve removing the factory door sill plate, to like, splice in lighting and what-not for the fancier options. This is a more straightforward, more affordable, budget-friendly way to customize it with a very simple, straightforward peel-and-stick application. Now, along with the mirror-like shine you see here, I do wanna point out that this particular kit with everything you see here is not going to work, unfortunately, with metal door sill plates. So if your Mustang came from the factory with a metal option, this is not gonna be for you. It's strictly for the plastics.As far as the pricing is concerned, I wanna mention, again, it is a more budget-friendly part, coming in right around 40 bucks. Now, since it is a least-expensive option, you are looking at an extremely simple install. It's a peel-and-stick application, so it is geared for the guys looking for the less-is-more route and not really the fancy route that would run you a little bit more money.Speaking of that install, this one is just gonna be revolved around cleaning off your factory door sill plates exactly where you're gonna be sticking the chrome trim. Now, alcohol wipes are your best bet. It also does come with a little dropper that can help you clean it with a soft, felt-like tip, definitely something you wanna use that's included in the box for you. That's really the only hardware you're gonna need here. It doesn't require any wiring. Just peel off the backing of this. Stick it into place here wherever you'd like. Obviously, it's got the pre-cut Mustang lettering, and obviously, the logos and lettering included with it, so you can take full advantage of customizing the kit however you'd like. Overall, it shouldn't take you longer than 5 to 10 minutes, which will definitely be why it gets a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.Wrapping things up, if you're the owner of an '05 to '09 Mustang, you might be looking for a way to slightly customize the interior appearance of your early S197 with a very budget-friendly part here that's got a peel-and-stick application, avoiding any of the messy wiring, the removals, the hand tools required. This kind of alleviates all of that, making it extremely simple for the less-is-more crowd. If that sounds like you, it's the Chrome Door Sill Plate Inserts, which are available right here at americanmuscle.com.
