If you own a 1999 to 2004 Mustang you probably heard of the Mach 1 style chin spoiler. Now here at latemodelrestoration.com, we've got two options for you-- the factory Ford original, and our SVE brand. Now, out of the box it's real hard to tell the difference between the two.
Texture almost identical. All the holes are in the exact same spots. That way it's a direct bolt on for a factory '03-'04 Mach 1.
The Ford unit has these Christmas tree style pushpins already installed-- one in the front center, two in the back corners-- to ease with installation. That way you can snap it up in the place. And it holds itself while you put in the rest of the pushpins.
Now the main difference here, flip these over and use the pushpins to line it up and give you a real good representation is the rear length. You can see that Ford one there is a little bit shorter. Our SVE one is a little bit longer. It takes it all the way back to the edge of the fender well.
Now in a factory Mach 1-- this is a factory '04 Mach 1 we're working on, in fact-- you have a little bit of gap at the back of the chin spoiler and the wheel well opening. This is factory. That's the way it came. And our SVE chin spoilers are a little bit longer. That way it takes up that gap, and moves the chin spoiler all the way back to the wheel well opening.
Now a common misconception is that these factory chin spoilers are almost indestructible. Well, that's not exactly the case. This factory chin spoilers very wavy and beat up, scratched from hitting parking bumps. It's just not in real good shape, makes this car look a lot worse than it needs to.
So we're going to take this off, replace it with our SVE chin spoiler. Now removal is simple. All you have is three of those Christmas tree style pushpins, and then 14 of these screw center pushpins. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver, and possibly a pushpin removal tool to get this chin spoiler off.
I'm going to go ahead and pull this factory chin spoiler off, get everything cleaned up, and then we'll show you how to put the new one on. Installation is relatively simple if you're working with an 03-04 Mach 1. But let's say you don't have an '03-'04 Mach 1. Let's say you're going to put this SVA chin spoiler on your '99 to 2004 GT or V6. Again, not too terribly hard.
Couple of extra steps, though. You want to grab you a buddy or two, take your chin spoiler, and line it up under the bumper cover, lining up the back of the chin spoiler with the wheel well opening on both sides. Have a Sharpie marker handy, and mark the two rear-most holes and the center round hole on the bottom of the bumper cover. Once you have those marks made, take the chin spoiler back down, grab you a drill with a quarter-inch drill bit, and drill those three holes.
Now we took a cue from Ford, and include all the original type hardware-- the three Christmas tree type fasteners, and then 14 of the screw type pushpins. You want to take these three Christmas tree fasteners and put one in each rear hole try not to drop them. They can be a little tricky to get in, because it's a tight curve in the back.
And then one in the center hole. Now what that's going to do is allow you to put that chin spoiler up into place just like this. And it'll hold itself.
Now the chin spoiler is held into place. You can grab your Sharpie, mark the rest of your holes, and drill them out. And then install you push type fasteners. Now if you've got an '03-'04 Mach 1, all you've got to do, slide a fastener in the hole, and push the screw center in. I'm going to go ahead and finish this up.
All right. I got all the pushpins in. This thing is securely mounted.
Man, it really changed the front end look of this car. Now I can't stress enough just how much of a direct fit this chin spoiler is on an '03-'04 Mach 1, and how easy it is to put one on your '99 to '04 GT or V6. Really can be done in your driveway.
Common hand tools. Not going to take a whole lot of time. And it's going to add a bit of style to your GT or V6, or completely dress up a once tattered Mach 1.
Now the big difference comes in here at the back. Completely flush with the wheel well now. Before we had almost a thumb's width gap at the back. Now it's completely flush. We took care of a factory issue. Now for more accessories and restoration parts for your Mustang, check out latemodelrestoration.com
