Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Extensive Review w/ detailed directions
The chin spoiler arrived in a box that was perfect for its size and was packaged very well. It had multiple layers of white foam sheet wrapping around the middle that continued onto the fender liner pieces that stick up. The part of the spoiler that goes into the wheel well and is screwed into the existing 3 wheel well screws was wrapped multiple times in bubble wrap and the same white foam wrapping. Overall, very impressed by the packaging.
The installation was very simple! The steps on the directions that came with the spoiler say to put the car on ramps first. That is incorrect, the first step is really to turn the wheel to full lock to either side to remove the 3 screws in the bottom front of the wheel wells. After these total 6 screws are removed put the car on ramps or jack stands. I used Rhino Ramps which worked perfectly. Next, remove and pre-existing accessory on the front lip and line up the spoiler. I would recommend not using the provided plastic push pins, don't risk the $200 spoiler over $25 worth of nuts, washers, and bolts. I used 1/4" x 1" hex bolts with 1/4" x 1-1/4 fender washers and 1/4" - 20 zinc nylon lock nuts which worked perfectly. The 8 pre-existing holes in the bumper lined up perfectly with the chin spoiler. I inserted a bolt with a washer into the holes and sandwiched it in with a washer on the top then the nylon locking nut. After the pre-existing 8 holes are all bolted up the next step is to drill the next 8 holes which are already in the spoiler. Use a handheld drill and a 1/4" drill bit to drill out these holes and repeat the same process as with the first 8. The next step is to lower the Mustang back to the ground and reinstall the 3 fender liner screws on each side. Make sure your new spoiler clears on the way down, mine definitely didn't. I had to physically hold the fenders and pull the car up with another person to get the load off of the suspension so the mustang sat high enough to clear, not as bad as it sounds, and it returns to normal ride height after roughly an hour. Back it off the ramps/lower from the jacks and turn the wheels to each lock to gain access to reinstall the 6 total screws while sandwiching the stick up part of the spoiler in the now 3 layers in that area. After that your installation is complete.

**MAKE SURE THEY ARE NYLON LOCK NUTS**
Overall, I am very happy with the new look of the front end of my Mustang. Make sure you watch out for debris on the road, curbs, parking lot blocks, large inclines, and speed bumps. A lot of the reviews talk about the spoiler flying off at speed, but I feel like it's because people are using the plastic push pins that come with the kit, I would HIGHLY recommend spending the extra ~$25-$30 on proper hardware.
