- SHR Mustang Honeycomb Taillight Panel (05-09) - Installation Instructions
Hi everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, giving your S197 a dose of classic Mach 1 styling thanks to this SHR honeycomb deck lid panel for all 05-09 Mustangs. This honeycomb deck lid panel is designed to be a throwback to the classic stylings of the 70s Mach 1, and really gives the rear end of your ride a dramatic retro facelift, it’s also a nice alternative to the less expensive magnet or vinyl options. The panel itself is molded from durable high impact plastic and is UV resistant so you won’t have to worry about it fading over the years. As you can see on our 2006 GT here, the fitment is absolutely dead on, even down to the center trunk emblem. Usually when you make this big of an impact on styling, usually would involve some expensive body work, drilling or messy bondo. Not with this part, simply clean and prep the area first using the supplied alcohol wipes, remove the backing on the 3M tape, and install carefully. Everything should take you about 30 minutes. Many of you on the site have mentioned the quality and fitment of this piece is top notch, looking at it installed on our own car, it’s easy to see why, it really finishes off the rear of the car well. So if you want to completely alter the rear stylings of your 05-09 without hitting the body shop or dropping big money, you’ll really enjoy this honeycomb deck lid panel from SHR.

Honeycomb Decklid Panel
The Honeycomb deck lid panel was solid and well built. Looks great and gives me the style I was looking for.Helpful (3)
Will this fit my '05 Mustang GT with Raxiom Gen5 Tail Lights installed?
Yes, this should fit just fine with that set up!
Will this fit around the matte black MMD trunk emblem surround?
No, unfortunately it will not fit over the MMD Trunk Emblem Surround without trimming down one or both of the parts. The SHR Honeycomb Deck Lid Panel was designed to fit over the original trunk emblem with minimal gap; adding the MMD Trunk Emblem Surround increases the diameter of the emblem which will consequently not allow it to fit through the opening in the deck lid panel.
Is it to cold to for the 3 M tape to stick? My honey comb deck lid, tail light trim and cdc chin spoiler came today and it's winter here with temps in the 20s and 30s. My garage is attached to the house but not insulated.I'm worried that the 3 M tape may not make a good bond to the cold metal. Should I wait for warmer temperatures? Thanks, George
Hi George, To be on the safe side, I would wait until it gets warmer.
Does the chrome Peace come with the honey comb deck lid
Unfortunately it does not. The SHR Honeycomb Decklid Panel only includes the decklid panel itself, it'll reuse the factory gas cap.
Hi, I just bought an 05 Mustang GT. It has the SHR Honeycomb Decklid Panel on it. My question is, I wanted to know if y'all have any tips on removing the panel? Thanks!
The SHR Honeycomb Decklid Panel is held on by 3M double sided tape. One method to removing items with 3M tape is to work a piece of fishing line or dental floss behind the item to cut through the adhesive. The only issue you may have is the residue that the tape may leave behind.
The SHR Honeycomb Decklid Panel (05-09 All) is made of a UV resistant automotive-grade BASF plastic which can be hard to paint. Painting this item would require custom work including making sure the paint does not puddle in each honeycomb.
yes i have both, my tail light trim is the thicker style and it fits fine.
Use a good camel hair brush and while brushing have a shop vac. hose right at the brush head.
No, the 2005-2009 decklid panels do not fit the 2010. The available decklids for the 2010-2013 can be found here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/1011-decklid-panels.html
