Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out the pre-painted radiator cover and radiator cover extensions fitting the engine bay on the 2005-2009 V6 and GT Mustang. This three piece kit is going to be a great dressup item to the engine bay in any S197 Mustang, sure the factory rad cover does a great job and all, but it doesn’t get you any extra style points whenever you pop the hood. In addition, the lack of the extensions from the factory tends to leave a lot of dead space over the headlight area. This three piece kit takes care of all of that, and as you can see it really enhances the under hood appearance. The kit includes a pre painted OE style radiator cover and the two pre-painted extension covers. All three panels have been molded high impact ABS plastic, so they’re not only going to offer great durability, but they should all fit like an OEM part. In addition, all these parts have been painted right here at AmericanMuscle headquarters, using the same base and clear coat that Ford uses in their factories, so you can expect a perfect color match to your ride, right out of the box. Getting all three panels installed is a real piece of cake and should really take you no more than 30 minutes. You want to start with the center panel first, removing the factory rad cover, the reinstalling the pre painted radiator cover in reverse order using the factory hardware. After that move over to the side covers, remove the factory bolt, then install the extension covers with the supplied 10mm bolts. So if you’re looking to make a dramatic visual improvement under the hood of your S197, then you’ll definitely want to check out this pre painted radiator cover and extension kit available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Very nice piece. Looks great. If you have hood pins you will have to modify it some. I just cut out around the brackets in order for it to lay down like it supposed to. I’m happy with it.Helpful (0)

I don't have it
I sent it back, it looked nice bUT when they showed in the video it showed it with a 3 pice set but it only comes for the center radiator cover. If you want the 2 pics you have to buy them and take and have them painted.Helpful (0)

Lime Green GT
For the filler on the right/left side I went to the hardware store and purchased a 3/8" black rubber grommet and a black speed screw. This fills the stock hole and secures the filler to the radiator support. The center filler fits like a glove. All in all it took 10-15 minutes. Less filling....tastes great!!!Helpful (8)

This is follow up to my previous question. I think you're misunderstanding my question. The video is clearly titled as, "Radiator Center and Extension Cover Kit - Pre-painted, 2005-2009 GT, V" Mustangs" and it shows 3 pieces, painted. I'm asking if such a pre-painted, 3 piece kit is available. If not, then the video is very misleading and should be changed.
We do not currently offer the extension covers as a pre painted option however we do offer an unpainted option found here:https://www.americanmuscle.com/radiator-extension-cover-black.html . I will also be submitting site feedback to have this product video looked into as well and we appreciate the feedback.
I have a 2006 GT with the 4.6L and in black but the 06 option don't have a black will the 2007 option work on a 2006.
Yes, fitment-wise it will all be the same. The year difference just comes down to the color choices for the most part.
I was reading the follow up on the Pre-painted Radiator cover .In the video it shows and said that the radiator cover and the Extension cover Kit looks great on the car .So I thought I was getting all 3 Pieces pre-painted ,But I only got the center piece.
The SpeedForm Radiator Cover only includes the actual radiator cover. The radiator extensions are sold separately.
how do clips come off cover
Using a flat blade screw driver, remove the factory center cover by prying up on the centers of the six push pin retainers . The flanges on the push pins are slotted to allow easier access to the center pins. Make sure the center pin is pulled as far out as possible ,and then pry up on the flange part of the retainers to completely remove them from the factory cover.
The item description seems to show only the center rad cover, but the accompanying video talks about a 3 piece kit. Is this just one piece and the video's in the wrong spot, or is it 3? If just 1, then what's the pn for the 3 piece?
This item is just the center radiator cover. If you wanted to get the radiator cover extensions, you can find those here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/radiator-extension-cover-black.html
Hello, we do offer an unpainted version of the Speed Form Mustang Radiator Covers here (https://www.americanmuscle.com/radiator-extension-cover-black.html) item number: 41219-00.
Hello! We do not have a SpeedForm Radiator Cover that comes pre cut for hood pins.
This radiator cover will not work with the GT500 model as the front end on the GT500 models is different than the ones on the GT and the V6 models.
If you are asking if it can fit a 2006 Saleen, unfortunately we do not have that information. Please contact Saleen for further information.
We use a heat resistant base and clear coats. These radiator covers won't get any hotter than the stock cover would and there won't be any damage to the paint either!
