The '05-'08 Mustang is a sure-fire hit among enthusiasts, so much so that it's almost impossible to own one without another one just like it showing up down the street. Fortunately, there are a myriad of products available for dressing up a new Mustang. Among the most popular -and easiest to install - are the covers for the C-pillar side windows on '05-'08 coupes.

Made from molded urethane, the Classic Design Concepts' louvered C-pillar covers are delivered ready to paint to match the car's exterior color. Double-sticky 3M acrylic foam tape, along with isopropyl alcohol prep packages and Adhesion Promoter, is also included.

Classic Design Concepts offers the covers in both louvered and non-louvered versions. We prefer the louvers for both their aesthetic appearance and because they provide some rearward visibility in situations when you're pulling into traffic from an angle.

The CDC covers are made from molded urethane, and as such they must be painted to match the Mustang's exterior color by an automotive paint professional. From there, installation is about as easy as it gets. The covers are supplied with 3M acrylic foam tape, isopropyl alcohol packages for cleaning, and Adhesion Promoter to properly bond the tape to the urethane. All you'll need is 80-120 grit sandpaper and masking tape for positioning the covers on the car.
