- CDC Classic Chin Spoiler - 2005-2009 Mustang GT - Installation Instructions
Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me CDC’s unpainted classic chin spoiler and the pre painted Mustang GT chin spoiler fitting all 05 – 09 Mustang GTs. In terms of styling you can see both spoiler options really add a lot to the front end, which in stock form can sometimes seem a little bit incomplete or unfinished. Both chin spoiler options are not quite as radical as CDC’s aggressive chin spoiler for the S197, which does offer a little more rake and will stick out slightly further. But in the end, both chin spoiler suit the front end well, and it all boils down to personal preference. As for construction, both options are made by CDC using high pressure injection molded urethane, which is going to stand up to just about any kind of abuse you can throw at it. This material is going to allow the spoiler to bend and flex without cracking, which is good just in case you ever accidentally hung up on a curb or something like that. As for the finishes you can see our classic CDC chin spoiler installed on our 2006 behind me, is unpainted which definitely looks good as is, or alternatively you can opt for the pre painted version seen back there on our 07 GT. The pre painted version is painted right here at AmericanMuscle.com headquarters, using the same base and clear coat that Ford uses in their factories, making for a perfect color match, right out of the box. Installing the chin spoiler is very easy and should only take you about an hour from start to finish. Of course you can do the install with the car on the ground but it does help to get the car up in the air slightly, just to give yourself a little more room to work. Another good thing about the install is that it requires no drilling whatsoever, instead using the supplied 3M automotive tape, and the 3M adhesion promoter. This is a very important step because it basically ensures a secure bond between the 3M automotive tape and the chin spoiler itself. Your first step is to rub that 3M adhesion promoter on the inside of the chin spoiler, on the upper portion wherever that 3M tape will go. After you get the 3M tape installed, simply reuse your factory hardware along with the two included push pins to get the job done. The CDC classic and the pre painted Mustang GT chin spoiler offer good quality materials and great fit, and are a great choice for anyone in the market looking for a front chin spoiler for their S197 GT. Be sure to check out both options right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Exactly what every 05-09 Mustang needs!
This chin spoiler really changed the entire front end of the car. The car now has a much more aggressive look and for me, it covered paint imperfections. If you're trying to build an aggressive S197, this is definitely the way to go!Helpful (2)

Not too good unfortunately
Well, the first two had bad orange peel in the paint job. Then they ran out of stock and I waited 2 weeks for more to be painted. No biggie...I could wait... The next one had an awesome paint job! AWESOME! BUT when it was packaged the staples went through the box and dug into the spoiler. UGH. Also, the fitment was poor as well. I dry fitted them and there was a very noticeable gap between the bumper and spoiler. I could fit 2 quarters in-between. Its a shame, would have been a simple install and they look great, but I gave up on this one. Fortunately, AM customer service was excellent as always...I ordered a Cervinis Type III instead. Fingers crossed...Helpful (1)

Looks great and was an easy install. Turn the wheels to the left and right to make it easier to get the screws out of the back of the bumper cover. Take your time and make sure to prep the spoiler and the bumper cover with the alcohol pads and the Adhesion promoter. Very important to ensure best possible adhesion.Helpful (1)

Ground clerance I have an 06 GT. How much will this lower the front bumber clearance. I have a angle getting out of my garage. From the bottom of the bumber is now 8 to the ground. What will this add
It will add about 1 to 2 inches, I had one on my 05 GT the only time I had problems was only on really steep inclines.
Could I keep this the color it comes in as?
The CDC Classic Chin Spoiler features an unfinished black surface. It could be left as is and installed if you so desired.
why does this not fit the v6 models?
From my understanding, the V6 models have a different front bumper which prevents this chin spoiler from fitting properly.
color I know it says this part comes un-painted but I was wondering what color the un-painted part is?
This CDC Chin Spoiler is a high pressure, black injection molded urethane. We have some off-car images to show exactly what you will receive. Hope this helps!
can this be installed without sanding it?
Hello! The SpeedForm Chin Spoiler - Pre-painted does not need to be sanded to install on the vehicle.
No, different clip.
Unfortunately, this chin spoiler does not fit properly on the California Special bumper.
Unfortunately, that is something done locally. We sell this chin spoiler either completely unpainted or completely painted; we don't have the option of just the ends. A local shop near you should be able to paint the ends for you without much difficulty though. Hope this helps!
We do not anticipate carrying that color in the future.
You would need to contact your dealership or Ford directly for the factory hardware.
TheSpeedForm Chin Spoiler will only fit the 2005-2009 GT factory front bumper.
Yes, the CDC Classic Chin Spoiler would fit on your 2007 Mustang GT.
We would not be able to custom paint the SpeedForm Chin Spoiler for you.
Unfortunately, we do not offer this CDC Classic Chin Spoiler pre-painted.
You can get the additional material for your chin spoiler at a local vinyl shop. Or you can purchase a full set of stripes and use only the material you need. You can find our vinyl stripes here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/0509-racing-stripes.html
