latemodelrestoration.com makes it very easy to upgrade the appearance of your 2013 and 2014 Mustang.
One way is by using this front inside splitter kit from Roush Performance Parts. While technically these are bolt-on pieces, they're not exactly direct-fit because they do require some drilling and cutting for installation.
Luckily, Roush does include very detailed instructions, along with all the needed hardware, so follow along, and we'll show you how to install these splitters on this 2014 Mustang GT.
We'll begin the installation with the front chin spoiler. You'll want to lift the front of the car to gain access to the underside of the bumper cover. You will need to remove the two 7 millimeter hex head screws at the lower front portion of each wheel well.
Remove the six 8 millimeter screws from the front of the closeout panel, and then remove the eleven remaining 7 millimeter panel fasteners and save these for re-installation.
You can remove the closeout panel from under the car. While you don't have to remove the bumper cover, we did so just for filming purposes to show you a clear view of all the fasteners you'd be touching.
Remove the two 7 millimeter screws from the chin spoiler. Remove and discard the six retaining pins from the inside of the bumper cover.
Depress the six tabs and push them through the slots in the lower bumper cover to remove the factory splitter. Remove and discard the eight factory plastic U-clips from the lower portion of the front bumper.
You can remove the six tabs from the chin spoiler either by cutting them off or breaking them off with a pair of pliers. Measuring from the end of the splitter, measure inward 47 centimeters or 18 and 1/2 inches. At your mark, use a straight edge to draw a straight line continuing around the splitter to the lowest body line.
We used a body saw to cut along the line. We cut downward, flush against the retaining end, to finish the cut and discarded the trimmed piece.
Now you can clean up any rough edges you may have using sandpaper or a file. Repeat these steps for the other side.
This is what your factory chin spoiler should look like after you've performed the cuts. Install the eight supplied J-clips along the front lower edge of the bumper cover. Temporarily install the new chin spoiler on the front bumper cover.
Install three screws found in the hardware kit and center the splitter up on the bumper cover. Mark your three holes on the right hand side and the three holes on the left hand side.
Before drilling, remove the splitter. And drill your six holes, first using an 1/8 inch drill bit and then stepping up to a 1/4 inch drill bit.
Install the six J-clips supplied in the hardware kit onto the six newly drilled holes on the bumper cover. Remove and discard the six factory J-clips from the lower closeout panel.
Hang the new chin splitter from the bumper cover, using six screws from the hardware kit. Install the remaining six J-clips from the hardware kit onto the new splitter.
Grab your factory splitter and slide it up underneath the new splitter. And install two of the take-off screws, then install the two screws removed from the wheel well opening on each side.
Slide the closeout panel into place. The panel must be sandwiched between the factory splitter and the new chin splitter.
Install six of the 7 millimeter screws that we removed in the beginning. Install the remaining six screws from the hardware kit into the front portion of the closeout panel.
Install the remaining five take-out bolts, removed in the beginning, to the back of the closeout panel.
After you finish up with the chin spoiler, you can move on to the rocker splitters. On the underside of the new rocker splitters, they're marked left-hand and right-hand. We'll start with the left.
Wipe down the four rectangular areas outlined on the top surface of each side splitter with a clean cloth and alcohol. Once dried, apply adhesion promoter within these areas.
Apply one strip of tape to each of the four rectangular areas where the adhesion promoter was placed. Keep the red side of the tape facing up. Do this on both rocker splitters.
Hold the rocker splitter in position and visually note where the foam tape is attached to the factory rocker molding. Lower the rocker splitter. Do not tape it into place just yet.
Clean the noted area where the tape aligns on the factory rocker moldings, and apply some of the adhesion promoter to the factory rocker panel. Remove the eight push-pins from the left-hand rocker panel molding and discard them.
Prepare the new rocker splitter by bending and creasing the pull-tabs for the tape. Do not expose or touch the foam tape.
Loosely install the left-hand rocker splitter and eight of the new supplied push-pins. Ensure that the foam tape pull-tabs are accessible and, starting at the front, ensuring that the rocker panel molding is nested into the recessed feature in the rocker splitter, fully insert the eight push-pins.
Pull the four tape tags to remove the tape backing and press the rocker splitter into place. Apply firm pressure at 3 to 4 inch intervals along the entire length of the rocker splitter to ensure a strong bond.
To keep from drilling too far, you can use some electrical tape on your drill bit to make a drill stop. You'll want to place several wraps of tape down about 1 inch from the tip of the drill bit.
Using the rocker splitter as a template, drill five new 1/4 inch holes into the factory rocker panel molding. Install a new push-pin into each of the five newly drilled holes. Repeat all of these steps for the right-hand side.
With the rocker splitters in place, we'll finally move on to the rear splitters. Take the supplied template, cut out along the dashed line, and fold at the lines marked "fold".
Position the template onto the underside of the left-hand part of the rear bumper cover. Align the rear-most hole for proper positioning, aligning the edges of the template with the inside edges of the rear bumper cover.
Tape the template in place. Once you're comfortable with the splitter template alignment, drill four 1/8 inch pilot holes into the center marks shown on the template. Remove the template and drill the four 1/8 inch holes out to 1/4 inch size.
With rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth, wipe down the rear splitters on the edge with all of the alignment holes.
Align a straight edge to the center of the four holes to use as a guide while applying adhesion promoter. Do not apply beyond the holes so the adhesion promoter will be visible once the splitter is installed.
Remove the white backing from the tape pieces and install the tape 4 millimeters from the edge.
Again using rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth, wipe down the bumper cover installation surfaces. Install the force applied J-clip fasteners over your 1/4 inch holes. Remove the red film from the tape to install the rear splitters.
Position the left-hand rear splitter mounting holes in alignment with the J-clips and loosely install the screws. Stick the rear splitter into place then fully install and tighten the four retaining screws. Do this for both sides.
The chin spoiler and side splitters are available separately or in this complete kit. And I know it's hard to believe that a few pieces of plastic can make a difference, but the difference is drastic. Your car will look better.
As always, Roush includes all the hardware, instructions, and even templates where needed.

You can add some aggressive styling and improve the air flow to your 2013 or 2014 Mustang GT or V6 with a Roush performance upper grill. This grill is a great option if you've chosen another fog light mounting position, such as the Roush performance fog light kit.
The hardest part of this install is going to be removing the front bumper cover. Follow along and we'll show you just how easy that part of it is.
Installation begins by opening the hood and removing the eight pin retainers along with the upper radiator cover.
Remove the four pin retainers and the four 8 millimeter bolts from the top of the front bumper cover. Remove the three 7 millimeter outer lower bumper cover bolts on both the right-hand and the left-hand side. Remove the front six 8 millimeter bolts and the rear five 7 millimeter bolts from the lower air deflector.
Pull down and back to remove the lower air deflector from the car. Disconnect the two side marker light connectors-- one on the right and one on the left. Remove the ambient air temperature sensor by prying it out of place. Pull outward to unsnap the right-hand and left-hand sides of the bumper cover.
If equipped, disconnect the fog lamp connectors. Pull the bumper cover away from and off of your Mustang.
Remove the three 7 millimeter bolts from each fog light and remove the fog lights from the factory grill. Release the 14 retaining tabs around the perimeter of the factory grill and remove the grill from the bumper cover.
Take this opportunity to clean the opening.
Slide the new Roush grill into position and install the 14 supplied U-clips.
Reinstall your bumper cover, reversing the removal steps.
The Roush upper grill is an easy snap-in installation that requires no modifications and no painting, plus it fits both GT and V6. If you have original grill-mounted fog lights, you can either zip-tie your old pigtail harnesses out of the way or, if you're installing something like the Roush fog light kit, they need to be routed down and plugged in to the new fog light adapter harnesses.
You can go to latemodelrestoration.com to pick up your Roush upper grill, as well as check out our entire offering of Roush performance parts.
This looks amazing when installed and has a factory fit and finish. I didn't have the tools so I had a Roush authorized dealer install this kit as well as the Roush fogs and couldn't be more happy.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

New Frills & Splitter
The Grilles and Splitter look great and took us from start to finish & 3 1/2 hrs. The directions ar not as clear as viewing the videos available out there. With that said. I really wish that Roush just made it directly replace the original equipment without any cutting. They could if they put a little more effort into it. If the Lower grille and Splitter were a direct just snap in or bolt on replacement, you'd be done in an hour. (KISS) Keep it simple is the best enginnering motto. Looks great !!!

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service. Very rare in this day and age, and because of this I will be a customer for life, and will spread the good word ! Great to know some honest and Classy companies still operate in the good ol' USA.
