3dCarbon did an excellent job packaging the spoiler. They shipped the spoiler with bubble wrap, foam, and even a very soft material to protect it from scratching. I ordered the spoiler in deep impact blue and the color match was perfect. The only issue I immediately noticed was their instructions for 2010-2014 mustangs had me drilling holes for an existing factory spoiler install. The GT500 spoiler utilizes your existing factory holes (if equipped with a factory spoiler) so NO DRILLING is needed! I used a combination of a plastic scraper, painters tape (to protect the paint), and 80lb fishing line to remove the existing spoiler. I purchased a 3M adhesive eraser (highly recommended) from an auto parts store to very quickly remove the 3M foam adhesive tape left by the existing spoiler. Once I cleaned up the left over 3M foam adhesive, the GT500 spoiler only took about 5 minutes to install. The GT500 spoiler completely added an aggressive look to my car. Highly recommended!
The biggest challenge to this modification is getting the old spoiler off your Mustang. I found fishing line cut the foam adhesive quicker than a razor blade. This is a great fitting, great looking spoiler. On my car (2012 Boss 302) the spoiler is an exact match for the original black on white paint scheme. Total time to install was about 90 minutes.
I'm very picky. Race Red color match is perfect. Install video was very helpful, I found the exact tool. I would recommend Two layers of painters tape for protection. Install takes about an hour. Looks great, should be the factory spoiler on a GT.
Finally decided on this spoiler. It was the right choice. My car had no original spoiler, but this was still an easy install. Read the instructions, and don't lose the included hardware. Just take your time and check twice before drilling anything.
You will NOT be disappointed....See my install review and a couple of pictures here... http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/2012-2013-boss-302-mustang-373/937020-ghig-gt500-spoiler-installed.html#post13089885
This is the best GT500 Spoiler on the internet. If you want it Pre-Painted. The Color match of my car 'Grabber Blue' was perfect. I had to drill Holes in my trunk but its very easy with the provided tools. Thank You, CJ Pony Parts
Easy install and fitment was great! Paint is 1/2 a shade darker then my paint but really not noticable. Price was right but communication on shipping was poor.
I picked up the 3D Carbon GT500 spoiler for a killer price from CJ. It was the cheapest I had seen it anywhere, and since I have a painter, I was ok with buying it unpainted. The item came very quickly and was packaged the best I had seen from a Mustang aftermarket supplier. It was wrapped securely in thick bubble wrap with styrofoam on the edges of the wing to keep it from being chipped in shipping. It seemed very sturdy and a great quality item and I am glad I went with it over the factory GT500 wing. I'm currently waiting for it to get back from paint, and I can't wait!
Extremely happy with this upgrade for my 2012 MCA Kona Blue Mustang. Provides a much more aggressive look and styling than Ford??s basic stock wing. I love seeing the 3D500 and black painted flap through my rear view mirror while driving. When I first unboxed the spoiler, I was somewhat worried about the paint match because it looked almost black in my dimly lit living room. My worries were unfounded though, because once I took it outside, it was a perfect match for the ever color shifting Kona Blue. Not sure why Ford used bolts to attach the stock wing, because the adhesive foam seems strong enough to hold thermal tiles on the Space Shuttle. Once the stock spoiler came off, installation was quick and the fitment of the 3D500 was perfect. This was my first purchase with CJ and will definitely shop here again.
Great spoiler, paint is a perfect match with my Kona blue color. Can't beat the price for a painted and delivered product. The factory adhesive on the original spoiler was a pain to remove, but that has nothing to do with the aftermarket product. Highly recommend this for anyone looking for an aftermarket spoiler for their 5.0
