Review & Install Video
What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the standard custom-fit car cover fitting your 2015 through current S550 Mustang Fastback.
So in this video, I'm gonna give a quick overview on who this car cover's going to appeal to, the materials and construction that went into this, what you should expect to be spending, and then we're gonna take a very quick look at what's entailed to get this installed, even if we can call it that. I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and less than five minutes to get your Mustang wrapped up.
So no matter where your Mustang sleeps, and be it if it's a daily driver or a weekend warrior, it's always a great idea to keep your car bundled up as you spent the money for it and you're gonna want to be protecting your paint, as well as your clear coat from any type of elements, be it outside or inside.
So from inclement weather ranging from rain, sleet, or snow, or even having birds using your Mustang for occasional target practice, this is something that would not only make me but it should make any Mustang owner out there cringe. As if you're gonna be experiencing paint or any type of clear coat damage, this can honestly add up and burn a whole in your pocket.
So this is gonna be a great option for any Mustang owner out there that's looking to ensure that their clear coat, as well as paint, stays protected as it should.
So not only is this gonna be a great option for owners that are using their Mustangs on the weekend only, but if you're short on garage space like I am and your car needs to live outside, then this is gonna be a great option for you.
But at the end of the day, if your Mustang is inside, garages do have a tendency to pick up a lot of dust. And if you do live in an older house, it's more than likely gonna be affecting your paint. So this is still gonna be a great idea for any Mustang owner. And despite keeping your car either outside or inside, you're gonna be protecting your paint, as well as your clear coat.
So in terms of the construction and materials here, guys, it's evident right out of the box that this is definitely a very tough car cover. On the exterior side, it's gonna be tough enough so it's gonna prevent any type of moisture from getting through or dust or any type of small particulates.
Now, on the interior side, it's gonna be smooth to the point where you're not gonna have to worry about this shifting over time and scratching your paint. So, down to brass tacks, guys, we're gonna see that this car cover is gonna be manufactured out of a proprietary fabric material which is gonna feature four layers, as well as being light gray in color.
Again, those layers are going to prevent any type of UV light from getting through, as well as preventing any type of dust or moisture from penetrating the cover itself.
So a couple of cool, quick features that I definitely like about this. Like most, if not all car covers out there, you're gonna see that you're gonna have a little bit of a security device. When I mean security, I mean that this is gonna have holes built into the underside of the cover, or the elastic is, and that's gonna be great if your Mustang lives in a parking garage and you're just looking to protect it from prying eyes.
Additionally, another cool feature is that this is gonna be machine washable. So after a couple of months or maybe a couple of years of abuse, simply pull it off the car, go down to your local laundry mat and throw it into an industrial size washing machine as this likely won't fit in a household style machine.
So in terms of the pricing here, guys, you should expect to be spending only about 150 bucks for this car cover, which, in my opinion, is gonna be very aggressively priced. On the flip side, there's a couple of options that are gonna be a little bit more. That's gonna be based on the materials used, as well as if they're going to feature a Tri-Bar Pony logo or any other type of Mustang logo on there.
On the flip side, there is another option on the website which is gonna be a few bucks cheaper than this one, but I might suggest staying away from it just based on the fact that the material itself is a little bit thinner and I honestly don't think it's gonna cover the car that effectively.
So, switching gears to the installation, even if we can call it that. I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, just like I had said up top, and about five minutes to get this onto your car.
Now, I know what you're probably thinking. We've got to call this an installation. It's a car cover. I just need to do my job here. It's gonna be as simple as putting this on your car, rolling it out, finding your mirror wings, putting them on, wrapping the car, and that's it.
All right, guys, just to wrap things up, here are some final thoughts. If you're the 2015 through current Mustang owner, you're looking to provide your investment a little bit more protection despite wherever it sleeps, be it inside, outside, or in a parking garage, I would definitely suggest picking this up for your car.
