Justin: The SR Performance Caliper Cover shown here in red should appeal to the 2011 through 2014 non-Brembo GT or V6 Mustang owner who might be looking to spice up that factory caliper area, adding some bling behind your favorite set of wheels and reducing brake dust on those wheels at the same time. Now, this set of front and rear caliper covers will feature a very nice T6 build along with that bright red powder coat, offer right around the high $200 price point.All right, guys. So, I'll just come right out and say it. Yes, I know caliper covers aren't gonna be everybody's favorite modification. In fact, I would say they easily fall into that love it or hate it category. So, hey, if you're not a fan, then chances are you already have your mind made up. Now, on the other hand, if you're maybe on the fence, or you dig the look of these things, well, then hang out with me for a little bit, and we'll run down some of the benefits and features of the red options here from SR Performance.And right off the bat, I will tell you that the SR options have been built extremely well from high-quality materials. Now, that does include the 6061-T6 aluminum that has been finished off in this bright red powder coat for a striking appearance and one that is sure to pop behind your favorite set of black gunmetal, silver, or chrome wheels. Now, the next thing you'll notice is that there is absolutely zero logos present anywhere on these covers, both front and rear. And that is something that I personally enjoy. Now, listen, some companies out there like MGP, for instance, will offer different iconic logos such as your tri-bar, running pony logo, five-liter logo. And while that is cool for some owners, other owners might prefer to keep things a little bit more basic and just kind of forego any extra logos or anything like that. Now, if that is the case, then I think you might enjoy these options.Now, another thing I do really dig about the SR Performance covers here is they do feature more of a realistic caliper-like shape, if you will, and even include some things like these little faux brake lines and even a little faux bleeder there to really help increase the realism and the look, if you will, for lack of a better word. And that's something that the other options that you might find on the site just simply do not add. Now, again, these covers are designed to fit your non-Brembo GT or basically any V6 out there, and it will require the use of an 18-inch wheel or larger. So, just keep that in mind, guys. And then, last but not least, SR does kick in all of the necessary hardware and tools needed to get these guys in place.But now let's shift gears and get into the install. And really nothing too crazy here, guys, nothing too intense, I should say. So, therefore, site's gonna call this one a solid one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe a couple of hours to knock out all four corners at most from start to finish. But now to give you a better idea of just how things are gonna go down on your ride at home, here is an AM customer to walk you through the job. Check it out.Woman: All right. To get the caliper job done, you need the jack, the jack stands, the shocks, holders for the front when you're doing the rear, the breaker bar, here at the breaker bar, you need the Allen wrenches that came with the kit. If your car has locked your wheels, you will need their key. And you need the torque wrench to spec for this 2014 Mustang. It's 100 pounds. So, these are the tools you'll need to complete the job.All right. The first step to installing these caliper covers, remove the wheel. Since we have chrome, we're doing it manually. Electric might damage the chrome. Then you're gonna position the jack. Make sure it's on the frame, not on the side skirts, as it will bend. You align it exactly. If you have any additional side skirts on your car, be sure it clears. And you might wanna put a rag on it to avoid any possible scratches. Release the tight nut to be able to put the jack on there. It should have little grooves on the bottom of the car already pre-done [inaudible 00:04:09]. Make sure it's properly aligned. Double-check your work. All right. Slowly lower the jack. All right. The car is ready.Next step, remove the wheel. Once you remove the wheel, I'll probably stop the video because I'm gonna clean the wheel, clean the inside. After that, we'll begin the caliper installation process. Keep in mind that your car has a key. If you find that key, don't lose it. There we go. So, again, if you maybe don't have chrome wheels, you might wanna use the electric. It's probably a little faster than manual. But for us, just for a precaution, we don't want any chips from the chrome. We'll do a little bit the long way. This is the passenger's side, we already did the driver's side. So, I'm gonna go ahead and clean the wheel. Bob here will install the new rotors, the new brake pads, and then we will restart the video once we begin the installation of the caliper cover, which is a pretty easy installation. We'll be back.All right. Brake drop is done, now we're gonna be installing the caliper cover. We do need the two little tools that came with it, and we're gonna go ahead and begin. The back ones are labeled number 2. Just make sure that the little rubber black valve faces upward. I'm nscrewing it there preparing the brackets to mount. The little screw goes this way in. Let me see. Yeah. The blue part goes to the top rimmer. And we learned a trick yesterday. In order for it to be properly, I guess, on there, you want some of the blue part of the screw showing once you screw it in. The caliper cover job is pretty easy. It's when you're doing the entire brake job, and that does take some time. So, again, screw it in until the little blue part shows. At that point, it's correct. Then double-check for a fitment that rotate the caliper cover, rotate your rotor.Bob: You can now rotate the rears.Woman: Okay. So, this thing clears everything right. Okay. And that's that side. Then after this, mount your tire back on, lower the jack, remove the jack stand. We're gonna go ahead and mount the tire and then move on. So, basically, it's the same process for the driver's side over there. Once you mount your tire on, he's using the breaker bar. We suggest if you have chrome wheels are very delicate custom wheels, do it manually just for the safety instead of using a power tool that can potentially damage the chrome. Once things looks super good with the addition of the new rotors, it looks really nice.Bob: Torque it down to 100.Woman: Yeah. The specs he's gonna use is electric torque tool, and it should be 100 pounds on all tires. Just for safety for the rear, he did keep the jack and the jack stand, and he put the little blocks in the front of the car just so it doesn't roll forward. This is all for safety reasons. Again, when you are under your car, the last thing you need is something falling. All right. Bring the car down slowly. It will beep when it's to spec. These fields do have a lock, so don't forget about the lock. All right. All the caliper covers have been installed. It looks really good. So, there you go.Justin: So, if you are looking to add a little bit more flash behind your favorite set of stock or aftermarket wheels and just kind of spice up that boring factory caliper area, well, then you'll wanna check out the SR Performance Caliper Covers today right here at americanmuscle.com.
