Ford Mustang Vehicle Wraps  

A lot of our customers ask us how much vinyl they should buy to wrap for their Ford Mustang. In the past, we weren't able to provide the best answer which is why we teamed up with Justin Pate from the Wrap Institute. Now, we can give you an accurate amount that you will need to wrap your vehicle. Even better than that, with Pate’s help, we can tell you how to measure and prepare the vinyl wrap and cut it into sections so you can wrap all the surfaces of your vehicle. You can watch the full video below and pause the video so you can accurately follow each step for the best possible result.



How Much Vinyl Do I Need to Wrap My Mustang?



First Generation Ford Mustang (1965-1973)

The first Mustang was launched in 1965 and it came with two engines. The first body types that came out were the convertible and the notchback with a fastback. In 1967, the Mustang saw a longer, wider, and heavier body type. And from 1969-1973, the Mustang grew even bigger and heavier with the performance packages like the Mach 1, the Boss 302, and the Boss 409.

For the first generation Ford Mustang, you will need about 15 yards of vinyl wraps to completely wrap it. The vinyl wrap is going to cover the entire exterior besides the windows, lights, and tires. That includes the doors, trunks, hoods, roof, pillar post trim, bumpers, mirrors, rocker panels, and fenders. For partial wraps, 5 yards is a great option since that covers one side of the vehicle.

They followed that up with a King Cobra in 1978.

In 1984, the Mustang SVO was released and did a limited run. The V6 was replaced with two engines and models: the Mustang LX with 2.3 L engine and the Mustang GT with V8.

We saw the return of the 4.9 L V8 with 215 hp and the 3.8 L V6 base engine. In 1996, the 4.9 L was replaced with the 4.6 L OHC V8 which has a lower torque. The Mustang saw another change in 1999 when it saw the "New Edge" styling and also saw the V6 replaced with the 190 hp and the V8 to 260. And the SVT Cobra became the first Mustang to have independent rear suspension.

I watch some videos on YouTube and as they said Avery film is a good choice for apprentice like me. Easy to install, move and release any air bubble behind. If you don't have any experience with car wrap I highly recommend watch some videos of this brand and do it.
