OEM looks killer with the adjustable flap

That does look good!
Between the store, being sick, and normal life, I haven't moved on buying anything yet. I spent the money I was going to use on the Mustang on um... Something else. So I'll have to wait until the wife forgets how much I spent on a comic boo...er, That other thing.

and now looking at them closer, this is reason enough for me to consider replacing my AM one with the Ford one...unless I get the Saleen wing instead.

I have made purchases!
I went pre-painted because my paint shop hasn't had the HD color code before and I didn't want to be the test specimen.


I have already received my Painted Headlight splitters From American Muscle.
I am waiting on a painted GT500 Style Spoiler from CJ Pony Parts.


I will report back about quality when I get them unpacked.


CJ pony parts said I would receive my spoiler in 10 to 14 days (I'm guessing AM had the splitters in stock 4 days from order to my house) and CJPP has to whittle one by hand out of a oak tree in the back.
And trust me, that is FINE as long as the Gotta Have It Green paint is correct.

Unpacking the treasure

So here is the review on what I've received so far. I will have another review after the install.


First to arrive is the headlight splitter from American Muscle.
Packaging is good. Thick box. Secure inside the box. Looks like everything is there. Parts arrived un damaged.

The main event

Second to arrive is the spoiler from CJ Pony Parts.


Arrived at 10 days if you don't subtract the weekend.


Package looks like the UPS guy had to sit on it to get it here. Still arrived un damaged. Thinner cardboard. Wrapped extremely well. Inside the box Polyethylene Foam and thin soft fleece like wrap protected the spoiler. Smelled like it was just painted, fairly strong.

Color match

It's been raining here so the Mustang is a bit dirty and there is some cloud cover. But here they are on the trunk. (I am excited about how much larger the New Spoiler is compared to the old one.)


Gotta Have it Green VS Gotta Have it Green VS Gotta Have it Green.

Are you going to install it yourself? I didn't enjoy trying to get the stock one off. that stuff is sticky.

I dig the way the GT500 spoiler looks on your 'vert, Darren. I'm strongly considering the same on mine while it's under wraps for the East Coast winter.

I may be calling upon you to pick your brain.

My friends over at the paint shop are going to install it for me when he paints the stripe on the Mustang.
I am built like an ogre. Fine motor skills are not my thing. If you want something totally destroyed, broken, mauled, scratched or ruined... I am your man.
I'm better suited for swinging a two handed sword on a battle field somewhere then to take on something like this that I care about.

yeah I think the bigger spoiler makes a big difference, especially after i did the quad exhaust. needed more muscle.

My advice to you for wing install.. Painters tape, and fishing line. Once the wing is off, the real fun begins. (Getting the old strip off)

That is good advice.
But I have even better advice. Let the guy who owns the body shop who just happens to owe you a favor do it for you.

So you're really digging the CJP GT500 spoiler I take it. I have a race red GT 5.0 and I'm thinking of putting a black GT500 spoiler on it.
