Review & Install Video
So the matte black tail light conversion kit that we're working with here today is going to be a great and affordable option for any '05 through '09 Mustang owner that's looking to give their rear end a dose of customization and modernization. As well as pulling some of the looks off of the 2013 and 2014 Mustang. But before I get ahead of myself, I do want to let you know that decals or any type of tint are not going to install that difficultly. You should expect to be spending about 30 minutes to an hour, and a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. But something I really like about tint or decals, for that matter, is that down the road, if you're looking to save up to get into a new set of tail lights, this is not a permanent modification in the slightest. In the event that you are going to pick up a new set of tail lights, you simply peel them off and throw them away. But like most, if not all of the decals and/or tint pieces that come out of American Muscle, we design, print, and test repeatedly all of our own product on our fleet of Mustangs, to ensure that you're going to have the best fit possible. Taking a closer look at the material itself, we predominantly use a 4-mil cast-style wrap. Now, that's going to be that much more durable than a calendared style of vinyl. A couple cool features that I really like about this. First and foremost, up top, this is going to have a clear coat, protective layer, which is essentially there to make sure that this isn't going to deteriorate when it's exposed to the elements. Then, on the adhesive side, it's going to feature something called an "Air Release Technology." Now, what that essentially means is that when it comes time to install these, they're not going to fight you like you might have found with older styles of vinyl. It's going to work on very easily, and I'm going to show you how coming up soon. But piggybacking onto the installation, just like I had said earlier, this is only going to warrant a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You should only expect to be spending about 30 minutes to an hour to get these onto your Mustang. Now, looking ahead, some things that I would make sure to have on hand before you install these will be the supplied squeegee, a couple microfibers. That's mainly going to be just to remove any type of grease, wax, or dirt or grime picked up from the roads, just to wipe off your tail lights before you throw these on. Then, a small water bottle with just a little bit of soap inside. So to begin, what you're going to want to do is take that microfiber that I just mentioned earlier, give your tail lights a nice, liberal cleaning, just to make sure that when it comes time to put these down, that adhesive is going to cure perfectly. Now, up next, what you're going to want to do is take that water bottle with the small amount of soap mixture, and then you're going to want to lightly mist the back of your tail lights. You don't need these to be soaking wet. So once you have that mixture of soap and water misted onto your tail lights, it's merely putting these onto them themselves, working out that moisture and air, letting them sit for a little bit of while, and that's it. So I'm Alex, and that's my quick review and breakdown of the matte black tail light conversion kit, fitting all 2005 through 2009 Mustangs, which can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.
