  1. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hey guys, I drove my 2005 for the first time since January, and as I came back to the garage I noticed a loose plastic bit lying on the floor where my engine bay usually rests. Naturally I am worried sick; it seems to be broken on one side, as one of the lips that snap into another part is...

    Hi, I was able to remove some vinyl decals using a hair dryer and elbow grease, however, the middle of my hood has what appears to be a 20" wide plastic race stripe; which I couldn't even begin to peel using a hair dryer. Does anyone have any suggestions that I can use without damaging the...

    I'm sure I've seen somewhere a plastic door panel for the 05 Mustangs but I've been looking online and can't see them anywhere. Did I imagine it?

  7. 2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    So I recently Sold my 2005 Mustang and was planning on buying a new 2011, however one thing I HATE about the new model is how much textured plastic is on the exterior, rocker panel covers, front bumper chin, rear valence, all cheap looking black plastic.

    I have a 1998 GT Mustang. What is the name of the plastic piece that surrounds the windshield wipers? Mine is brittle and cracked in pieces when I put a little pressure on it. Any place other than junkyard or dealership I might be able to get this? I searched the web but maybe I'm not...

    I know my 1999 has a plastic (SMC) rear decklid but I was wondering which other body parts are composite materials. I think the sides of the roof (A and C pillars) and the hood, is that correct?

    What the title says. I've heard quite a few people using tire gel to shine up the plastic under the hood and was wondering if it was okay and durable for the side view mirrors and grill? thanks,

    What is the best way to maintain unpainted black ABS Plastic (that is currently in perfect condition) to protect it from UV discoloration and keep it looking good? Also, what is the best product to make dulled, whitish ABS plastic look black and glossy again?
