Review & Install Video
Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the Blue Illuminated Door Sill Plate Covers fitting all 2015 and newer Mustangs. In this video, of course, we'll be going over the styling and appearance you can expect when picking up the Blue Illuminated Door Sill Plate Covers as well as their materials and construction. I'll top the video off at the end with the installation, which I'll let you know upfront requires a very minimal amount of wiring, so I'll still be giving it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, making it an almost plug-and-play install.
The Blue Illuminated Door Sill Plate Covers I have here today will be for any 2015 or newer Mustang owner looking to spice up the interior appearance of their Mustang by giving it a little bit of style when opening up the doors. Now, these door sill plate covers are exactly what you'd expect them to be. They're covers that'll attach on top of your factory door sill plates, allowing you to make no necessary modifications, and you can attach and detach them whenever you wanna make some changes. With that said, there's blue illuminating LED strips attached to the bottom of the plates giving you that blue customized color for your preference. Now, of course, that also offers wiring that will require a little bit of splicing. But, over all, it's still a simple enough installation, splicing right underneath your factory option.
One thing some people overlook when shopping for door sill plate covers is that they can actually provide that little bit of protection you might want for your interior. Now, of course, nobody wants to see their interior getting beat up. But over time, it definitely can happen and most likely will. Now, of course, if it's taken care of properly or if you've got a set of covers like these, you can keep your factory door sill plates clean and make sure they're in good condition, on top of the styling and appearance, obviously, being their main functionality.
When you open up the doors, you get the blue illuminated logo here with a 304 stainless steel material and a brushed silver finish just to give it that extra detail and design. The blue gives it that customization. And, of course, on top of that, it protects and keeps the interior inside your doorjambs looking good.
Now, if this is something that you're interested in here, you can expect to pick it up for just north of 200 bucks. Now, honestly, that's a pretty expected price tag. Now, door sill plates do normally go for a little bit less than that. But when you factor in the illuminating LEDs, of course, that bumps up the price just a little bit more. This one is definitely going to cater to the guys out there going to a lot of car shows and car events and are looking to make their S550 stand out against the very overwhelming pack.
Shifting gears over to the installation portion of the video, like I said in the very beginning, it does require a very minimal amount of splicing, but it's still easy enough for anybody to take care of. It doesn't really require any tools except maybe a flat-head screwdriver just to pop off the factory door sill plates. With that said, it still gets that one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and expect to get it done in about an hour, an hour and a half maybe, tops. One thing I do wanna point out before I go any further is that if you have footwell lighting installed on your S550, it might require a bit more wiring than usual. Of course, you get to tap into your map lighting or other similar options as the factory door sill plate wiring underneath will be taken, thanks to the footwell lighting.
So to kick things off, you'll use your flat-head screwdriver to ply off those factory door sill plates and splice your wiring into, of course, the factory wiring underneath the plates. Once that's taken care of, pop that factory one back on, peel off the backing on the 3M tape, stick it into place, and you're good to go. Keep in mind we are using the 3M automotive bonding tape application already pre-applied to the back of the door sill plates. So, of course, you wanna make sure the surface you're sticking it to is free of any dirt or dust just to make sure it gets a good and secure bonding. Repeat that process for the opposite side. Test it all when you're opening up your doors. Everything should work properly. You should see that very attractive blue LED lighting. And if you do, you're good to go. If not, you might wanna revisit some of that splicing. All set and done in about an hour, an hour and a half, tops, and a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.
Just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer Mustang and you're looking for a perfect way to get some customization when opening up your doors just to get that interior appearance a bit more spiced up, you might wanna check out the Blue Illuminated Door Sill Plate Covers, which are available right here at americanmuscle.com.
