Justin: If you're the owner of an '05 to '09 Mustang and you want to invoke some of that retro styling of the classic mid-60s Mustangs, well then adding SpeedForm's pre-painted side scoops here might just be a great choice. Now the SpeedForm scoops will feature a durable urethane build but with the benefit of being pre-painted of course, all for right around that $200 price point. Installation will not involve any cutting, drilling or permanent modification, so figure a soft one out of three wrenches here on the difficulty meter, maybe 30 minutes of your time as we'll demonstrate later in the video. Throwing a set of scoops on the early S197 really is a great way to increase the already iconic or retro lines of this particular car to better mimic the Mustangs it was originally styled after. Now the big two areas people often address here are the quarter windows which I think you'll find a number of options on the site and also the quarter panel which again you will find a few different styles. Now between the SpeedForms that we have here and some MMD options on the site, you will encounter some very minor differences in styling but I'd say the C-style scoops that we have here will be one of your more radical designs in the category. And if you're wondering where that C-style scoop name came from, well, all you really have to do is look at them and then you'll see this kind of curvature here in the design that is done so in a way to really flow nicely with the factory lines or flares over those rear wheels. As always, guys, this is where I'm gonna tell you to go check out some of the customer submitted images if you haven't done so already because it really is a great way to get a better feel of how these things might look on your own ride at home once everything is been installed. But aside from the basic design here, the best part about these scoops in my humble opinion will be the fact that they have been pre-painted to color match your S197 at home as seen with our red fire options here. Now if you didn't know, our state-of-the-art paint booth here in house does spray with the same base and clear coat that Ford uses on all of their Mustangs, which in turn will ensure a near-perfect color match for your ride at home right out of the box. In fact, don't take my word for it, feel free to check out the numerous four and five-star reviews that have pointed out exactly that. As far as your installation is concerned, we'll again, don't expect anything too crazy here guys, no drilling, no permanent modification needed, instead some cleaning of the surface. Adhesion promoter is gonna be the big here and then finally your 3M automotive-grade tape basically making it a very easy day in the garage or driveway. And to prove that to you, here's a quick detailed walkthrough of the job from our buddy Joe. Joe: The tools used for this install were detail spray, a microfiber cloth, and a razor knife. The first step to this install is gonna be to make sure that the area where you're gonna be applying the double-stick tape is nice and clean and free of all debris, so I'm gonna use some detail spray and a microfiber cloth and wipe the area down. The first thing I'm gonna do is to use the supplied alcohol wipes to wipe down the back of the piece to make sure that the double-stick tape adheres properly. Once it's all cleaned up, I'm gonna use the provided adhesion promoter and do the same thing. Now I can apply the provided 3M adhesive tape to the back of the panel. Using the same process, I'm going to install the grille piece into the inside of the scoop. Next, I'm gonna start the corners of the 3M to get it ready for install. Sometimes it's easier to use the point of a knife to get underneath the 3M backing. And I'm just gonna peel back the corners so that when I apply it to the vehicle I can pull the rest of it off on car. Just like I did with the panel, I'm gonna use the provided alcohol pad and adhesion promoter to wipe down the surface to get it ready for install. Now I can carefully place my panel, getting all my body lines to line up before I pull my tape. And finally, I'll just apply a little bit of pressure to get my tape set in. And now you can repeat this process for the other side of the vehicle. And that's gonna wrap up this review and install for the SpeedForm Side Scoops for your '05 to '09 Mustang. Thanks for watching.
