Installing StangMods 99-04 Vinyl Tail Light Decals

Mustang Tail Light Decal Installation (Flamed, Outline & Honeycomb Kits)

Tools Required:

  • Squeeggee
  • Spray bottle
  • Liquid soap
  • Terry cloth or towel

Use rubbing alcohol to wash all dirt and road grime from the surface of your tail lights.

Mix your soapy water solution by adding a few drops of liquid soap to warm water in a spray bottle.

Generously spray the solution over the lens you are working on. Then remove the vinyl decal from the paper backing and apply it to the lens.

While the solution is still saturating the tail light lens, align the decal for a correct fitment and use your squeeggee to remove any excess solution from underneath the decal. Start from the center and move your way out.

Wait a few minutes, depending on the temperature, and then try to remove the transfer tape (top protective paper) from the vinyl. If the paper comes off and the vinyl stays in place, then you are good to go and you can move on to the next one. If the vinyl comes off, rather than staying on the car then use your squeege to apply the decal over the lens again.

Finish up by wiping off any excess solution from the body of your Stang.

Installing Vinyl Mustang Bumper Inserts on 99-04 Mustangs

Installing Mustang vinyl bumper inserts is probably one of the simplest modifications that can be done to your 99-04 Mustang. We go over the rather quick process in this installation write-up.

Tools Required:

  • Spray Bottle
  • A couple of drops of liquid soap
  • Q Tip
  • Hair dryer or heat gun (optional)

You first want to make sure the letter area on your rear bumper is completely clean and dry. This is absolutely important to ensure the letters adhere to the bumper properly. After this is done, you’ll want to mix a warm water and liquid soap solution and put it in a spray bottle. Any liquid soap will work.

Next, take your water/soap solution and spray down the letter area on your rear bumper. It is better to work with one letter at a time. Here we are starting with the M.

Once the area is wet, take the vinyl bumper letter and peel off the thicker paper backing as shown below.

Now, line up the vinyl letter with the indentation on the bumper. Take your time and be patient as you want to make sure the letters are lined up correctly.

Once the letter is lined up with the indentation in the bumper, take your q-tip and begin smoothing out the letter onto the bumper.  Work from the center towards the sides. Try to get as much as the liquid solution out from the letter.

It is important to note that if you are working in temperatures below 60 degrees, you may want to use a hair dryer or heat gun to help warm up the vinyl. This makes it easier to adhere to the bumper.

Once the letter is firmly in place, you can peel off the transfer tape. Start peeling the paper away slowly. If the vinyl letter stays in place on the bumper then you can remove the rest of the transfer tape.

Repeat the above process for the rest of the letters. Take your time with the “G” as it is more difficult to line up correctly. After your done, you’ll be left with this:

Installing StangMods’ Mustang Shorty Antennas

Installing a shorty antenna on your 94-09 Mustang is a very simple process that takes less than 5 minutes. We go over the process in this write-up.

Tools Required:

  • 3/8 Inch Wrench (optional)

The first step is getting the stock fishing rod-like antenna off of the vehicle. We were lucky and able to remove the antenna by using our bare thumb and index finger. Turn it counter clockwise and it will come right off. If you cannot unscrew it by hand, use a 3/8 wrench to do the job.

After unscrewing the stock antenna…

Your new shorty antenna comes with one threaded adapter base. Screw the fatter end of the threaded base into the stock antenna location as shown below.

Now, simply screw on the new shorty antenna onto the adapter base in a clock-wise motion.

Your installation is now complete!
