Review & Installation Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with checking out a very budget friendly way to change up the look of your rear bumper, thanks to this AmericanMuscle rear valence decal for all 99-04 Mustangs, available in either gloss black, or a matte black finish like we have on our 2000 V6. We here at AmericanMuscle test fit each one of our vinyl designs on our own fleet of cars first, to ensure a perfect fit every time. Now as you can see we’ve paired our rear valence up with a blacked out third brake light and also the blacked out rear deck lid panel which looks awesome. This decal blacks out the lower portion of your bumper thanks to the premium cast quality vinyl, eliminating the need for any permanent modifications or expensive paint. The result, a much more aggressive look that’s sure to turn a few heads. The decal installs in about an hour using the supplied instructions and a squeegee. Now a little pointer here, the decal does ship rolled up so a good idea would be to let it sit out on a flat surface for about 24 hours just to help make install a lot easier. So if you’re looking to change up the rear styling of your New Edge Mustang without breaking the bank, then you’ll definitely want to check out this AmericanMuscle rear valence decal.

Aggressive Styling. Black out the lower portion of your Mustang's rear valance (bumper cover) for aggressive custom styling that everyone one will remember when you pass them on the street or the track.

Perfect Fit Guaranteed. Our vinyl designs have been test fit, refined, and tested again on our very own fleet of vehicles to assure a perfect fit every time.

Superior Quality Materials. Made from the highest quality Premium Cast Vinyl available on the market today - designed to last at least 8 years of harsh outdoor weather. They are far more durable than our competitors cheap, calendared vinyl film which starts to degrade in just a couple of years!

Application. This high quality matte black Lower Rear Valance Blackout Decal will fit the 1999 to 2004 V6, GT, Bullitt and Mach 1 Mustangs as well as the 1999 Cobra with the factory style rear bumper cover.

I recently received this rear valance accent and it's wider than the area it's to attach to. Does it need to be trimmed off or is it meant to be folded under the valance? Also, the vinyl doesn't appear to have a protective layer over it to remove. Is this the way it's supposed to be? Thanks


  • The Matte Black Lower Rear Valance Accent is designed to be installed with the edge rolling underneath to hide the seam. Typically this comes as a 3 piece decal, with a lower film to remove for install, ad an upper film to protect the decal during installation, to be removed after installation. If this is missing, please contact our Customer Service Department.

Why does this only fit a 99 Cobra and not a 2001 Cobra? I know the 99's say "Mustang" and the 01's say "Cobra". Is the lower valance area a different size?


  • The valance on the 2001 Cobra is not compatible with the size and shape of the Matte Black Lower Rear Valance Accent.

Chrome rims How will this look on a rio red mustang with chrome rims? All I see is it with black rims


  • It depended on what you personally like. The main focus for these is to amplify the letters in the rear bumper. I personally do not like black wheels on any car and the chrome letters look gawty. I would say you will probably get the look you are going for with this product and chrome rims. Good luck

Just wanting an opinion. To all mustang owners out there, how do you think this decal would look on an 01 maroon mustang that had smoked headlights but white letter inserts? If I can get another ones opinion that'd be great. Thanks.


  • definitely think it adds to the rear end of the mustang with this, deckild, and letter inserts, your stang will be looking much better

air bubbles is it easy to install or is there lots of air bubble?


  • No air bubbles, dont be shy with the soapy water spray and take your time to squeegee it out. Wrap a cloth around the supplied squeeegee . After you get most of the soapy water out, wait half hour and go over it again. Install this in the shade or in your garage, if you are in hot sun you will have less working time to get the bubbles out. I did the hood, back deck , leters and valance in less than 3 hours. Tip: spray the decal as you remove it from the release paper to stop it sticking to itself.

    Didn't fit

    I just got the rear valance in the mail 2 days ago, I let it sit out flat for that time before I installed it. It was not a perfect fit like AM said it was to be. It over hang almost a half inch, I tried cutting it down but it looked sloppy. I was disgusted and ended up putting it in the trash. What a waste of $20.

    A little tricky to install

    At first, I felt the item was cut about a quarter of an inch too short length wise. As I was putting the decal on, I realized that my valance would not be covered as I would have liked. I was getting ready to pull it off and send it back for a refund and then decided to let it almost dry completely and stretch it into place. That was the trick. I was able to get all the bubbles out and it looks great. I coupled this with the honeycomb black out panel and what a difference this made. These broke up all the red in the rear nicely.

    A Nice Touch for a Plain Rearend

    Just peel and stick. Thats all there is to it, just be sure to get the sticker wet so you can get it placed before it dries. Looks great and is a perfect accent

    Valance Centerfold

    Thanks American Muscle for the endless amount of items available for my Mustang GT. The valance really defines the back bumper to be a show worthy car. Silver paint and black accent go together well. Plan on adding other things in the near future for both performance and style.

    Matte Black Lower Rear Valance Accent

    American Muscle provides you with what you need to complete the project, although the instructions included in the box mention a soap and water solution that isn't brought up prior to where it says to use it and isn't described. The decal itself is very forgiving and allows for some minor repositioning if you don't get it right the first time. You have to work with it a bit to get it to wrap and stick the way you want it to, but it makes a big difference to the rear end of the car and doesn't look cheap. It is just a small detail that works.

    Great styling

    This has been on my list of styling pieces to get for my car for a while, but I finally decided to pick it up. I have a silver convertible, so the black goes really nicely with the silver. The fit wasn't perfect, there seemed to be a little extra material on the bottom of it to go over the bottom lip of the bumper, but I got it to fit and look well. Installation is easy, just get some soapy water to place the vinyl onto the bumper. You then use a card in the box to smooth out all of the bubbles that will be under the piece. Finally, grab a hairdryer to get the piece to fit perfectly on the bumper.

    Dent Fix

    The previous owner had someone back into this car. Looks like the Hitch Ball from possible PU Truck. Minor dent, but major scrape. All I had to do was a little sanding smooth, and apply this to pretty much cover it up as if it wasn't damaged. Great improvement. And very easy to do.

    The product looked great but the installation wasn't very great. My dad and i are perfectionists and while we were putting it on and taking it off a couple times it stretched. So we had to use a box cutter to trim a little bit off the ends to fit. I recommend having a partner help you with this product. Other than that, the squeege that comes in the box is very helpful and also use a hair dryer to help get the air bubbles out. Also don't take the whole vinyl off at one time. You want to have the white paper (what the vinyl came on) still intact with it just in case you mess up and so it wont fold on itself.

    Rear matte black valance decal

    Pretty easy to install with directions given. Takes some patients. Be sure to keep blade and surface super clean. Its vinyl it scratches easily. Well worth the money. Will probably actualy paint it later in year or two. Depends how long it remains looking sharp, and fresh.

    This addition really makes my mustang thrive even more. It adds a nice touch with the mustang letters inserts. If you are looking to be a little more unique, definitely look into some matte covers! Was confused at first on how to install because I didnt skip step 2! If you get the normal matte cover and not the glossy one make sure you skip to step 4! (just peal that paper stuff off!) American Muscle=awesome quality products!
