Justin: The MMD Ducktail Spoiler that we have here will be a great choice for the 2005 through 2009 Mustang owners who are looking for a slightly more aggressive GT500 style spoiler but with the added convenience, of course, of that pre-painted finish. Now your construction here we'll utilize that durable yet lightweight ABS plastic for the overall build while the ducktail will be available for just about every factory color available or offered in this year range. Price point is gonna hover right around 300 bucks and the installation will be indirect bolt-on here as the MMD option will utilize the factory holes left in your decklid panel by that factory spoiler. So, with all that said, figure a soft two or three wrenches on the difficulty meter here, maybe a couple of hours to complete from start to finish as we'll show you guys a little later in the video.So, the ducktail from MMD is without a doubt one of the most popular spoiler options currently on the site for those early S197s with well over 100 five-star reviews and a host of customer submitted images. So, as always feel free to check those out if you haven't done so already. Now, me personally, I love the balance of the ducktail spoiler from an appearance standpoint and what I mean by that is you are getting some of those GT500 style vibes here but with a bit more angle or kick up when personally, I feel like that's why this is a slightly more aggressive option by comparison.Now, as I pointed out earlier, the build is all durable ABS plastic here. But more importantly, is finished off in one of the many factory colors straight from the AmericanMuscle paint shop. Now, if you didn't know the crew here at AmericanMuscle paint does spray with the same base in clear coat urethane that Ford uses on their Mustang. So, essentially, you can expect a fantastic color match right out of the box as you're looking at with our red fire here. Now, this is super convenient for one because not only does it allow you to get the spoiler essentially onto your car instantly the moment it arrives, but it also saves you the hassle of having to track down a local paint shop and just hoping they do a good job on the color match for your ride. Again, we do offer just about every factory color available for this particular gen. And as always to be on the safe side, I would double-check on the product page before pulling the trigger on the ducktail. Now, if you're not sure exactly what your paint code is, you can find it either on the internet, of course, or by using the sticker in the driver side door jamb or on your VIN plate. Now, it's also worth mentioning that if you're either handy with a spray gun or if you already have a solid paint hookup locally, well then you can always grab the ducktail spoiler unpainted and save yourself a few bucks in the process.But either way, now we wanna segway into that installation and again, the MMD ducktail here will install using the pre-existing holes left by your factory spoiler. Now, if you have a bullet or maybe some other car without a factory spoiler option then obviously some light drilling will be required. But for a majority of owners out there, early S197s, you will be reusing the factory holes as we're about to show you with our red fire GT here at the shop. Check it out.Man: The tools used for this install are: Detail spray, a microfiber cloth, a Phillips head screwdriver, a 10-millimeter socket, a quarter-inch cordless impact, and a clip removal tool.The first step to installing your new ducktail spoiler is gonna be to remove your factory spoiler by removing the four 10-millimeter nuts located inside the trunk lid. Once the nuts are removed from the inside of the trunk, you can use a panel removal tool to start prying apart the double-sided tape that also holds the spoiler down. Now that the original spoiler is removed, you can clean the surface and get it ready for your new ducktail spoiler.Next, I'm gonna use the supplied alcohol white pads to clean off the surface where the double-stick tape is going to apply. Now, we can just peel the corners of the double-stick tape to get it started and get it ready to install into the trunk lid. Just peel them back and fold them over the edges so you can get to them once the decklid is put on the car. Now that the double-stick tape has been peeled back a little bit, you can apply it to the trunk and line up the bolt holes on the bottom of the panel with the bolt holes on the trunk lid. Keep a hand on the spoiler while you lift your lid to get the holes lined up. And then using the supplied screws, put the screws into the threaded inserts. Once the screws are started, you can use a Phillips head screwdriver to snug them down making sure that your spoiler doesn't move out of place in the process. Okay. Now, we can close the trunk lid. With the screws snug but not tight, you can start to peel back your double-stick tape that you'd peeled off earlier. And with your tape peeled, now you can tighten up the screws fully.And that's gonna wrap up this review and install for the MMD Ducktail Spoiler for your '05 to '09 Mustang. Thanks for watching. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

Easy to install but mine did not come with any adhesive tape. I just put it on with out it for now lol. I was too excited to put it on and didn’t want to go to the store to get 3m tape. The biggest pain was getting the adhesive off from where the stock spoiler was. The tail obviously cuts about half your back window view but it’s not something that will become dangerous. Very happy overallHelpful (0)

MMD Duckail Review
The spoiler came in good condition, but did require moderate rework prior to paining. Install went well and the fit was okay. It would be good if this spoiler used both mounting holes for installation. Currently only the back mounting hole is used which can cause the spoiler to have the tendency to lift in the front. The front hole is very close to the edge and may not lend itself to a ribnut / sunk in threaded hole; however, a stud set into the molding would be helpful and make installation / alignment easier.Helpful (0)

I got the prepainted spoiler within 2 days of ordering it and it was packaged well without any scratches. My only problem is that it is held on with two bolts and double sided tape. It’s doesn’t feel very secure and the tape didn’t adhere very well. I made sure I cleaned the entire trunk lid with alcohol before installation. When the tape stops holding I will go find some higher quality tape and redo it.Helpful (0)
The holes dont really line up with factory holes for spoiler. Its a pain in the butt to try to get on and i still cant. Any tips?
Hello! Please give us a call at 1-844-494-7745, and we'll help troubleshoot your fitment issues.
I have a 09 gt with a factory wing, can I use a ducktail spoiler will it cover the wings holes, or do I use them to mount the spoiler??????????? thanks
The MMD Ducktail Spoiler will install using the OEM holes in the decklid, so no drilling is required and all holes will be covered.
Rear viewing challenge? How's the sight line out the rear with this? Any difference from the OE pedestal spoiler? Thanks for your insights!
It does block an inch or two of visibility but its not too noticeable. The only difference in sight between the MMD and the OE pedestal spoiler is really the amount of light that shines through the rear. Less light will shine through with the MMD Ducktail Spoiler from other driver's headlights than with the OE Pedestal.
Can someone tell me if the.mmd ducktail for the S197 covers the holes in the rear deck lid ie: trunk lid?
Yes, this spoiler would cover the holes left by the factory spoiler when installed.
Would it be possible to add a wicker bill to this? I was looking at this spoiler but I'm not sure if it'll fit due to the curves...
Unfortunately, we do not offer the Mineral Grey paint code at this time.
We would recommend contacting our customer service, as we would be able to send out new tape. You can also go down to your local autozone, etc, and they can assist with different tape!
The MMD Ducktail Spoiler should use a set of M6x1.0 bolts, however some older variants may use a different thread.
When purchasing off our site this will come equipped with 1 duck tail spoiler, the 2 mounting screws, 2 washers, 4 alcohol prep pads, and printed instructions as well.
The install instructions for this kit, and the kit itself, is designed for mustangs that already have a factory rear spoiler. Unfortunately, there is no instruction guide to install without a factory rear spoiler already on the car.
The MMD Ducktail Spoiler mounts up to the factory spoiler bolt holes and is designed to be a direct bolt-on replacement for your Mustangs factory rear spoiler. The Roush rear spoiler uses different mounting points that need to be drilled out in different locations. The MMD Ducktail spoiler will not use the same mounting points as the Roush Spoiler.
This will come in a gray primer.
Hello! Give us a call at 1-877-574-0821. We may be able to get you replacement hardware for your MMD Ducktail Spoiler
Hi, This spoiler is a direct fit replacement for factory spoiler, no additional body work or holes to be drilled or filled for a simple straight forward installation.
This would not come in a matte black. This would be a grey color when it is shipped out.
