... Don't... buy... the magnetic panel...

Waste of money.


Go for a solid 1 piece. I went with the gloss black GTS panel for about $65.

I was never too sure if I liked the blackout pannels or not, but today I saw a Grabber Orange GT from a distance with one and it looked good. I only got a quick look so I couldn't tell you what kind it was, but the black on GO sure did look good.

Sorry, but I must disagree. I have the magnetic panel and it looks great. I can try to take a close up pic if interested. I will readily admit it was a ***** to install because it wanted to curl up......they really shouldn't ship it that way as it develops a pretty strong memory. I had to be very P A T I E N T and use a hair dryer to get the material to relax. Others have used the oven on the lowest setting (~ 150-200F) should be okay. Once it relaxes, it is a breeze.

The panel is one piece with a hole cut out for the fake gas cap. When you first put it on it will curl a bit, but that comes out within a day or so. You can also use a hair dryer to help it flatten out quicker. I have had mine for 3 years and it still looks great, just the same as when I first put it on.

I had the magnetic panel but tore it a bit when removing it once. I would only consider it temporary until you decide you like the look and want a permanent panel. I replaced it with vinyl.

I have a magnetic one and I'm pleased. I found the best way to get it to uncurl is to place it on your refrigorator and let it flatten out before putting it on the car. And they do have a large whole in the middle. I got mine off ebay for like $30.

The magnetic blackout panel was the first mod I did to my car and I get comments about it all the time. People find it funny that it's just a big magnet. I just set it on a table with a stack of books on both ends for a day or two and it flattened out. Mine did tear a little bit but that is because when you take it off you need to make sure and pull it from both side and work towards the middle, not from one side to the other. 1 1/2 and no issues.

My mod list finally got too long to post in my signature. I must be doing something right

Mine tore, scratched, and overall looked terrible after about 5 months. Glad you had better luck!

Buyer beware.

I too have the honeycomb panel from Silverhorse Racing and couldn't be more happy with the quality of the product. It's been on my car a little over two years with no problems whatsoever.
