Justin: If you're looking to emulate the same styling found on one of the baddest production Mustangs of all time but without breaking the bank, well, then the OE GT500-Style Spoiler here in gloss black will be a must-have addition to your 2010 through 2014 Mustang at home. Now, this particular spoiler will combine a durable, yet lightweight ABS plastic for the build, along with incorporating that pre-painted gloss black finish to go with just about any color S197 there is.Price point is gonna hover in that high $100 range, and the install, at least according to the site, it's gonna get a solid two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and take a couple of hours or so to complete from start to finish as we'll show you guys later in the video. So in my humble opinion, this is one of the best-looking spoilers out there for the 2010 through 2014 cars as it just balances the right amount of aggressiveness, but still maintaining a bit of that OE feel.Now, of course, I might be a bit biased as I have this exact same spoiler installed on my S197 at home, but reality is, guys, I have no intention of taking it off anytime soon as it really just helps complete the rear of the car. But as I did mention earlier, guys, the inspiration behind this spoiler is pretty obvious, right? And that is, of course, modeled after the same spoiler used on the later S197 GT 500.Now it is going to feature very similar styling cues like the subtle rake, along with the detail here towards the end. Now, unlike the factory Shelby spoiler which does include a gurney flap back here, this particular option just kind of paint-matched that portion and incorporated it into the mold. So there's really no adjusting it or anything like that, it's just there for visual purposes.Now, as far as the materials are concerned, pretty standard stuff here, guys. And that is the pressure molded ABS plastic for the overall build before being sprayed in a gloss black paint job here, which again, will offer a nice contrast to any color S197, or if you'd like, you can always paint it down the road. That is totally up to you.Now, if you haven't already done so, feel free to read up on the new numerous four and five-star reviews along with checking out some of the customers' submitted images to get a better idea of how the gloss black option might look on your own ride at home. But let's shift gears and get into the install, guys. And again, if you have a factory spoiler, then you will not need to drill. However, if you do not have any spoiler on your ride, well, then, obviously, you will need to break out that drill.But either way, to give you a better idea of just how this install will go down, here's a detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown now.Man: The tools used for this install were, 1/4-inch impact driver, 10-millimeter socket, alcohol prep pads, a damp microfiber cloth, a Phillips head screwdriver, and a clip panel tool.Hey, guys, we're gonna watch some previous uninstall footage from Joe, and then we're gonna jump right back into the install.Joe: So the first step to this install is you're gonna need to pop your trunk and to remove the 13 clips that hold the interior panel to the trunk with. Next, we're gonna use a 10-millimeter socket to remove the 4 factory nuts that hold the spoiler to the deck lid. With our hardware removed, we can go ahead and remove our factory spoiler. Now, ours has been off a few times, so it came off pretty easily.You may have to deal with a little bit of 3M stuck to the deck lid, and you can remove this with a plastic scraper, some adhesive remover, or an eraser wheel if you have one.Man: So first thing we're gonna do on our install is we're going to look what comes in this kit. We have our four Phillips head screws for our bolts that's gonna hold this to our deck lid. We have an alcohol wipe, which is going to be used to clean the surface then. We'll go over that then. And then I have our 3M tape or adhesive that we're gonna put down on here.And it also gives you these, which are to be able to draw holes in case your car doesn't have the holes pre-drilled. Ours does, so we're not gonna be able to use these. These would just go and sit in place where the holes are. Lay down, you would tape them to the trunk lid, and then you'd be able to figure out where your holes are gonna be and place them accordingly onto your deck lid.So now let's get started, we'll start installing our 3M tape. So the first thing I'm gonna do is I'm gonna start with taking our square pieces of 3M tape that we have. I'm gonna place them over the holes like this. And this will allow that when we put our Phillips head screws in and pull down, they will actually adhere to the trunk lid. I'm just gonna peel these back. Get these in place.Now on our vehicle, we're not gonna remove the red just because this is an installation to show you how to put it on. This will be coming back off our vehicle. But on your vehicle, you're gonna wanna peel the red tape off that then, get that off, and then it'll be ready to stick on the vehicle.Next, we're gonna put our 3M tape along our line here, and I'm gonna show you how to do that. And then we'll show you how it's gonna sit and peel when you get it on the vehicle. And I'm gonna take my 3M tape that's supplied in the kit. I'm gonna start over here. I'm gonna run it right in the center of it.When you get to that point, you're gonna wanna give it a slice right there. So now I'm gonna take 3M again and run it into here. Make this little corner. I'm gonna make this little corner right here. And when we get it down to this point, you're just gonna wanna make another cut right there. So now that we got our red adhesive tape on, all I'm gonna do is peel the red back a little bit, push down on it so it stays this way right here.That way, when we get it on the vehicle, we'll be able to just grab it and pull it off. Same on this end, we're gonna pull this up, make a fold in it right there so it stays up that way. And the same on the bottom. Just take it off about that far, fold it so it goes underneath. That way, we'll make sure when we set this down on, we could just peel the tape off once we get it semi-bolted to the vehicle.Now on our vehicle, I'm not gonna pull the tape off because this piece is coming back off, but you'll be able to do it on yours and then press down on it. So now we'll go over to the vehicle and clean the trunk lid. So now that we have our factory wing removed, I'm gonna take some quick detailer, spray our trunk lid here, get the dirt off, and then we're gonna use our alcohol wipe to clean it and get it so that the 3M tape adheres to the trunk lid.Once I have that all clean, all the dirt off, I'm going to take our alcohol wipe. Now, if there is adhesive still on your trunk lid, ours isn't because this wing's been off a couple of times, you're gonna wanna take some kind of light plastic scraper or some kind of adhesive removal to get the glue or the two face tape that we're is on there from the factory.So now I'm gonna take my alcohol wipe. We're just gonna wipe where the tape is gonna stick. That'll remove all the wax and any kind of stuff like that's still on the trunk lid. So now we got that done. Now we'll start our installation of our wing. So now I'm going to install our wing. And kind of try to eyeball it in place here. Again, leaving the red plastics out so that you can get to them.And then I'm gonna lift the trunk lid up to see. So now what I'm gonna do is line up our first hole here and get this one started. You gotta be careful so that you don't drop the bolt down inside here. It happens. Trust me. So then I will go over to the other side and start the outer one on this side. And I can move on this side with my Phillips. And I'm just gonna get it started. Just get it snug so then I can start my inner ones.So now we're gonna stick our inner ones in. Get them snug. You don't wanna tighten them up because we gotta pull that tape off. I just got them snug. Now we'll put it down so we can pull our tape off.Now that we have our four Phillips heads snug, you're gonna want to remove this red tape. You're just gonna pull on it, pull on this one, pull on that one, just pull across. You'll pull the tape right off. On this vehicle, like I said before, we're not gonna do that because this spoiler's coming right back off, but on yours, you're gonna pull it off and then just give it a good, nice press all the around on the top and then go underneath and tighten up our four screws. That's what we're gonna do right now.So now that we pulled our tape off, we're ready for our adhesive to stick. I'm gonna start by tightening up our Phillips head screws. Now that we got those tight, we're gonna go and install our cover underneath onto the trunk lid with our push clips. So now I'm gonna install our panel back on in our trunk lid. Line up our holes, put our push clips back in. Now we'll finish putting our two top ones in.And that's gonna wrap up this installation. That wraps up this review and install of our MP Concepts GT500-Style Rear Spoiler Gloss Black for '10 to '14 Mustangs. Thanks for watching.
