Justin: If you're looking to recreate a very small piece of that certain iconic movie Mustang, then adding the MMD Eleanor Style Scoops to your 2005 to 2014 Mustang should be an absolute no-brainer. Now, these groups will combine a durable impact-resistant plastic with our super convenient pre-painted finish all for right around 250 bucks. Now, installation, as you might imagine, going to be pretty straightforward here, gang. So, figure soft one out of three wrenches on the old difficulty meter. And I would say about 30 minutes of your time to get everything in place from start to finish as we'll demonstrate, by the way, later in the video. So, if you are watching this video, then chances are you already know the inspiration behind these extremely popular five-star rated scoops. And that is a certain 1967 GT500 from the cult classic "Gone in 60 Seconds" remake. And while sure, these scoops aren't necessarily identical to the ones used on that special car, they do still invoke a bit of that wild retro styling. But movie car appearance aside, the construction, again, will feature that injection-molded ABS plastic build. It's going to be very lightweight and very durable overall. Now, the kit will, of course, include two scoops, along with all of the 3M tape needed to get everything installed. And the scoops themselves will completely cover those quarter windows on your S197.So, with that said, don't expect to retain a great deal of visibility out of those windows with everything in place. And because of that, the site and myself here will recommend picking up the quarter window blackout decals, also available here on the product page, once installed to cover the unsightly backside of the scoops and all the tape. Without those decals, of course, you will be seeing some of this through those windows, not necessarily the end of the world and totally not necessary, but as you can see will certainly help clean things up a bit. And again, you can pick those up here on the product page for about south of 50 bucks. But aside from the basic design and inspiration of the Eleanor Style Scoops, I'd say one of the best parts about these options is the fact that they're offered pre-painted right out of the box to color match your S197 perfectly. Now, if you didn't know, we spray all of these scoops in our in-house state-of-the-art paint booth using the same base and clear coat that Ford uses on their Mustangs, which basically equates to an excellent color match again, right out of the box. And as always, guys, don't take my word for it. Feel free to read up on the numerous four and five-star reviews back on the product page and check out the customer-submitted images to get a better sense of just how well that color match really does do. Now, as far as your installation is concerned, well, again, don't expect anything too crazy here, guys. You don't need to bust out any Bondo or body filler. Instead, everything is done using the included 3M automotive-grade tape along with the scoops themselves. Very straightforward job, but it really does come down to the prep job as well as cleaning the surface first before adhering your scoops to ensure they stay put at all speeds. But to give you a better idea of how things will go down, check out our detailed walkthrough and breakdown right now.Man: Got a really, really easy install for you, guys, today. All it's basically going to be is peel and stick. You're going to just want to make sure that you're starting with a clean and dry surface that's free from any debris so that you get good adhesion when you stick this on. So, let's get started. So, I have my window louver laying face down on a microfiber cloth just so while I work so I don't scratch anything. I'm going to use the provided adhesion promoter, and I'm going to go all the way around the edges of the window louver as well as on this large section and this large section here. Now, I can begin applying my 3M back. I'm gonna start with the large piece and lay that across this large section here. And then I can apply to this large section at the back. And the rest of my 3M will be applied all the way around the perimeter of the louver.Once you've applied all the 3M backing to one of your louvers, you can repeat the same process on the other. Now, I'm gonna use the provided alcohol prep pad to wipe down the area around the window so I get good adhesion for my window louver. So, now I'm ready to install my louver onto the vehicle. I started by peeling back just the corners of my 3M backing. This is going to allow me to have a little bit of wiggle room if I need to make any adjustments before I fully adhere this to the side of the vehicle. Once I'm happy with my placement, I can start peeling the rest of my 3M backing and then apply some light pressure so I get good adhesion. Now, I can push down lightly just around the edges where the tape is. And once I'm done with this, I can repeat the same exact process on the other side of the car.And that's gonna wrap up this review and install of the MMD Eleanor Style Pre-Painted Window Scoops, fitting your 2005 to 2014 Mustang. Thanks for watching, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.
