I was looking for a similar channeled effect for my taillights. I ended up plopping down $65 for some AVS products from Moss Mustang. I painted them bumper trim black and put them on the car. I also added a magnetic black out panel from Latemodel Restoration Supply to the center. The car looks great, and if I decide that I don't like the look, I don't have to figure out how to remove any pain from all of the stock parts.

I may be getting some of the chrome trim for my taillights today. Right now I'm looking for an inexpensive dress-up, and this looks pretty good. One question though, if I want to upgrade it later, will I be able to remove the trim safely?

Well, I went ahead and did it...I think it dresses it up just enough. And someday, if I want to do a more expensive upgrade, I still can. This cost me $9.99, and was pretty easy to do.

Thanks. I figure later on, when I can afford more expensive things I can always upgrade. For now, I think it's a big improvement for only 10 bucks.

Here are some more pics.

That an old rental car? Those and other fleet orders usually only have the door ding molding thing.

Nope...wasn't a rental car. It was a factory demo, though (bought it off the Lincoln dealer's used lot in April '05). The day after I bought it, I noticed it only had the molding on one door, so I had them add it to the other one (easier than removing one and leaving a mark). I have seen others with this trim, though.

Just did some browsing of Mustangs for sale on eBay. Quite a few '05 V6's have the door trim, so I don't think it's that rare.

it's a cheap way to help keep dings off your ride (especially if work has a tight parking lot) and if they are installed right, dont look that bad.

Me, i'm not a fan of it. Takes away from the lines. And any I see on the road I assume its a rental, therefore no nod

ya until i feel i really would be safer with them, i'm gonna keep the sides stock, parking far away and walking is good. but those moldings can actually look good on like civics and corollas (if either of those could look good ) but w/e...................
