Mustang Rear Bumper Cover ('87-'93 LX) - Unpainted - Installation Instructions

Installation Time

3 hours

Tools Required
  • Acetone or MEK
  • Burgundy Scotchbrite Pad
  • Cleaning Cloths


Prepping for Painting:

1. WASH the paintable surfaces with a heavy duty detergent degreaser i.e....Castro! purple stuff, Palmolive liquid dish soap, red hot, and USP90 scuff gel, using a gray scuff pad until the part is dull and then rinse thoroughly.

2. SAND across item with 400 grit or finer paper and check for imperfections. Repair as needed.

3. RE-WASH with heavy detergent degreaser and USP90 scuff gel or Palmolive liquid dish soap using gray scuff pad to remove any residue. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry with a lint free towel.

4. WIPE item down using SC159 plastic and anti-static cleaner with lint free towel.

5. SPRAY item with UPO7227 plastic adhesion promoter.

6. SPRAY item with P30 sealer base coat then clear coat.

7. DO NOT oven bake our parts above 100 degrees F. They should be well supported during any heat cycle to avoid the flexible part from warping.

Installing the Part:

1. Install the factory "plates" across the inside of the top flange and at both bumper flanges at the ends of the bumper. Again, this factory hardware installs on our part just like on the factory OE bumper cover.

2. After aligning the bumper cover secure the part by screwing on the nuts onto the factory hardware studs. Do not over-tighten.
