    Looking to add some side scoops to the car, does anyone have experience of the quality / fit of these from ebay?
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-MUS...rentrq:8a3c009016f0a9e0a7eec931ff8cebb3|iid:1

    Looking to get them colour coded to the car but i presume these are then glued to the bodywork?

    Presuming that many others will have done this mod already so happy to hear suggestions for the best scoops and advice on fitting

    I ordered mine direct from American Muscle and pre-painted in race red (to match old car). Colour match was perfect and fitment was perfect.

    Simple install using 3M trim tape. Make sure you use adhesive promoter etc to ensure best quality adhesion

    Also I would recommend getting the faux grill inserts to finish them off you don’t want it open really.

    by coincidence my previous side scoops as being painted in Orange Fury today to match new car DBFA2E0D-3FC4-4AC9-ABB3-85B105C8FE74.jpeg A2D36B32-D437-445C-8B08-4DE567A7FC7E.jpeg

    that ebay price is crazy - for what they are!

    I bought some - very similar (ie the same - but at about 70 quid) - they came covered in a black "waxy" stuff - which when I removed it with white spirit showed cracks and scratches

    After a lot of sanding, filling, sanding and priming - I was spraying the first top coat on - when one of them fell of its hanger onto the floor and was covered in dust etc

    walked straight out of garage to my computer and contacted Guy at Nemesis - bought some "proper" pre-painted Roush ones immediately

    arrived swiftly and fitted well (not perfect - but well)

    3m tape on a very clean paint surface

    the roush ones have been on my Mustang for over a year and a half - no issues

    They are exactly what i am looking for but from what i can seen American Muscle doesn't provide International shipping (since Dec18) and the Nemesis Roush ones are double the price of these ebay items which i thought was a little steep for a coat of paint. But i guess you get what you pay for!

    might look for someone selling off some used ones and re-spray

    So you're recommending Nemesis for some adequately fitting scoops then Bob?
