      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, I'm Justin with, and this is our appearance Bolt-On Build-Up for all 94-98 Mustang GTs. Now as you can see, we really raised the bar in regards to our exterior styling, with our Grabber Blue SN-95 here. We were able to do this using 15 or so different appearance parts that just about anybody can bolt up, in the comforts of their own driveway or garage. Now with the exception of these headlights a majority of the parts used in our appearance pack stayed true to the Mustang bloodlines. Take for instance, our Cobra R-style hood, Saleen-style spoiler, Bullitt wheels and Bullitt fuel door. Now that's just the tip of the iceberg. What do you say we take a closer look at some of the other parts used in our build, that really separated our GT from being just another Mustang build. For starters, we really went to town with our AmericanMuscle Graphics, and why not, since they're made right here in house? First up, we installed these Matte Black Rocker Stripes, which will give our GT a touch of that heritage style. In addition, to further help tone down the brightness of our Grabber Blue paint, we decided to tint just about every light we could, using some of our AmericanMuscle Graphics tint. This includes our Quarter Marker Lights, our 3rd Brake Light, and also our Tail Lights as well. Now using our AmericanMuscle Graphics tint is full of benefits. For one, it's very easy to install. It's also going to be pretty easy on your wallet, and I think we can all agree it really helps turn up the aggressive styling on our GT. A final piece of that AmericanMuscle Graphic can be found right here, with our Black Rear Lower Balance Panel, which is working nicely with our Black Bumper Insert Letters. Now these insert letters are a subtle addition to the rear bumper, and fill the void perfectly. Now these letters are made from 100% stainless steel, which is going to offer you quality, along with durability, and of course that black finish was a no-brainer on our build. These are a must-have for sure for any SN 95. We have a couple of Raxiom products spread around the car, two of which can be found right here in the tail lights. Now we, much like many other Mustang enthusiasts, love sequential tail lights. So we installed Raxiom's Plug-n-Play sequential tail light kit, along with their turn signal modifier. Now this slows the light pattern down, and really allows the entire package to shine. Moving on to the side of the car it's pretty obvious where I'm going next. Nothing says AmericanMuscle more than a set of staggered bullet wheels, and that's exactly what we have going on here. We were able to shove a massive 18x10 in the rear, along with 18x9s up front, all sporting some new rubber from Sumitomo, which should really help our grip, along with our looks, thanks to that black and polished lip combination. Wrapping things up on the front of the car, you'll see a very popular mod with this Mach1 style chin spoiler. Now this spoiler really finishes off the front of the car, and gives the illusion that the car itself is actually a little lower to the ground. Finally, we have one more product from Raxiom, I'm referring to their Smoke Projector Halo headlights. Now these are probably the most radical part we've included in our build in regards to modern styling. Now they feature the very cool Halo accent lighting, which is certainly unique to say the least. So what did we accomplish with our build? Well, we blacked just about everything out, we added parts with some classic Mustang DNA, and threw in some modern styling, just to mix it all up. The end result, in my opinion is understated and over the top at the same time, and what I mean by that is, look at any one area of the car, take the rear end for instance. We have the spoiler, the tail lights, the fuel door. All these parts have been modified, but they don't scream parts catalog. That's because they all work so well together that, to the untrained eye, could be mistaken as factory additions. So that wraps up our build with the 98 GT here. Be sure to check out some of our other 94-98 Bolt-On Build-Ups, where we get our handling in check, and crank up the power.

        2 1998 GT - Aaron Installation Time: Afternoon

        Terrible instructions

        The product itself is good. Nice quality tint that is durable and the adhesive is definitely in the forgiving department. However, the instructions are confusing and don't offer much insight into the actual step by step process. To make this much easier for the next person, you are going to want to remove the tail lights from the vehicle and remove the actual painted tail light cover from the tail lights... The tint cut outs are TO BIG to try and "stuff" them into the curved corners of each light.. Also... You will NEED a heat gun/blow dryer. AMERICAN MUSCLE should make a video on the installation process since I'm sure this is a very common mod.

        Cheap way for black look/.

        Happy I got this. It really sets the back of the car off. Was a little bit of a pain to get it right. Took out the brake assembly's to get a great look. Was not to hard but was for sure worth it.

        Waste of money

        I did the tail lights tint today and it would not stick to the lights I took my time to do it correctly and it looks like garbage.I think those sticker are not big enough and the glue not sticky enough I would not buy it.I read peoples reviews before I bought it and most people were happy wow not me.I see you can buy new tinted light for $80 than it makes no sense to do it your self spent $30 and it looks garbage.It took 4h to install like I sed I took my time to do it and not happy with the outcome!!!

        Tailight tint

        It was a short and quick install. The instructions really helped along with a couple youtube vids before hand. But I love it, the car like way more aggressive in the rear and people love the look of it,

        4 1998 V6 - AdrianV

        It did the job

        They give the back end a nice new look and looks great from a few steps back!! I had a few bubbles on the first two i did that popped up a few days later most likely user error because I had to remove the plastic piece that sits over the light halfway through the install which was a hassle. The cut outs were rather big and i couldn't tuck it under the plastic piece so I had to remove it. Also, no matter what i did it still wrinkled up in the corners but after reinstalling the plastic piece I was able to press most of the wrinkles up under the plastic so they were not visible. Other than that, plenty of light shines through so you won't get pulled over by the cops and I have the look I wanted!!

      How would these be installed? Do you use a heat gun or is it like in the video where all you do is spray some water on the tail light and stick it on or is water even required? Is it the same for the light on the spoiler?

      • You do not need a heat gun to install this. You will need water and yes this is the same for the light on the spoiler. I have added a link to a customer submitted install guide below!

      How is this tint different from window tint? A long time ago I tried tinting my tail lights with normal window tint, but it did not go so well. I know a flat surface doesn't fit well on a curved surface. Will your product fit my 1996 curved taillights "easily"?

      • These are pre cut and go on like stickers
