Thumbs up 2011 Mustang AM Hood Scoop

I just installed a new pre-painted hood scoop this last Saturday that I picked up at AM.
It went well and with drilling the holes for the mounting screws, I see how thin the hood sheet metal is. And it is thin.

Just picked up the GT500 pre-painted spoiler today and will try and install it in the next few days.

Looks good. I'm glad to see it fits well. The rear corners of mine don't sit flush.

Looks good but I'm biased! That said, you are a braver man than I. The gt500 rear spoiler uses the same mounting holes as the stock spoiler. The difficulty will be the 3m tape removal but can be done with some curse words and patience. Good luck

Best way to remove adhesive (IF and ONLY if you have a steady hand and some patience) is with an eraser wheel. You put it on the end of any standard drill and let it do all the work! I've become pretty experienced with mine on previous/other people's cars.

Back on topic, How smoothly did the install go? Ive heard of some horror stories of the corners not fitting flush with the hood.. It looks like yours went on without a problem! Unfortunately, AM doesn't offer prepainted goodies for Yellow Blaze but thats perfectly ok as I have plenty of hookups for painting

Or do like I just did (removed all my trim for paint so many of it had VHB tape) and vinyl stripes. Use a heat gun to initially strip the large tape pieces, then Goo Gone the adhesive afterward. Gotta be careful with eraser wheels and burning your finish if you are not used to using them.

Let us know when the rear corners start to pull away from the hood.

Looks great! The GT500 spoiler is a easy to install especially compared to that hood scoop. My factory spoiler was not as hard to take off as people make it out to be just a little patience i used my thumb and rolled the left over 3M tape off then Goo Goned that rest of it.

They work ok. I had to use a dremel to adjust the hole a little. The instructions say to use a 3/16" drill bit but had to use a 1/4" bit for the privided hardware. I did mention it to AM when I stoped in and picked up the rear spoiler
