At Mustangs to Fear we produce great looking, great fitting, easy to install body kits. But don't just take our word for it. Here is what some of our customers have to say about our kits.
Awhile back I made a phone call and since then I have been more than excited. On the other end of the phone was Rich from Mustangs to Fear. The call started with just ordering an "E- Body Kit Installation Instructional DVD", but Rich took time to talk to me and answer ALL my questions. By the end of the phone call I knew I was taking my car to him. He is a top notch body-man (artist), painter and person. Once I received the DVD I was sold after watching it. I invited buddies over and they watched it too - and everyone's thoughts were unanimous, the only other question was "When are you taking it to Rich?" I delivered my car on December 22nd, Rich and Michele showed me the operation and the complete product line. Again - I am impressed with everything they are involved with. I was completely comfortable with my car in their hands. I knew everything was going to be done right. Michele kept me updated weekly on the progress and any changes with the vehicle. She even sent me updated detailed pictures throughout the build process.
The kit install is the pivotal moment for ANY E-Build creation, and I know I made the right decision going with Mustangs to Fear.
Now with the car complete - it is a show stopper. I recently entered it in the largest indoor show in the state (Carl Casper - Louisville, KY) with 550 judged cars. The car drew unbelievable attention all 3 days of the show, literally causing congestion at its location. On Sunday Feb. 27, 2011 - My MTF E-Build WON 1st Place in the 1960 - 1969 Hardtop Resto-Mod Category - AND this included ALL MAKES.
Mustangs To Fear is Top Notch in EVERYTHING they do.
Thank you Rich and Michele!

I purchased a 68 fastback "Eleanor" which had a body kit from a major supplier installed about 4 years ago. I wasn't happy with the front bumper fit and had my body man take it off to straighten it out. It fell apart in 3 spliced pieces. I had seen the Mustangs To Fear kit on Ebay, so I called Rich to inquire. After about 20 minutes, I knew this was the body kit I needed. Rich's passion for Mustangs and his knowledge of the fitment issues of poor quality fiberglass kits was evident. I ordered the 1 piece nose, hood, flairs, upper and lower scoops, and side exhaust panels. It was shipped promptly by motor freight to our shop. My body man restores NCRS and show quality Corvettes, so he is well versed in fiberglass quality. He immediately commented on the thickness and finish on all the panels. He even said it was better than most press molded Vette panels being supplied today.
The install went smoothly with very little reworking of the flairs to fit the reproduction body panels. The hood was a perfect fit right out of the box. The DVD supplied by Rich and Michele was very helpful illustrating the install shortcuts. I called back and ordered the taillight panel and LED taillights. Both items were again shipped fast and well packed. Michele has emailed many times making sure everything was received in good shape. I just ordered the grill kit and exhaust tips as well. All panels are now installed and the car will go to final paint soon. The gap and alignment is perfect. We are impressed with how easy the one piece nose slips on and off with the pre-installed studs. The lower scoop fitment was easy and did not need excessive filler to align with the doors. The hood underside is smooth and looks great. The added height of the hood scoop is minimal, but allows clearance for my high rise intake. The two piece rocker panel gives the car a "clean" transition matching the door gap.
I would definitely recommend the Mustangs to Fear body kit for quality, fit, and finish. Add the customer service before and after the sale and you can't go wrong. My body man commented that this kit easily saved me more than half the labor hours of other kits he has worked with. I have included pictures of the install and will send more when car is in finished. Thanks for a great product.

After a horrible and expensive experience with another body kit, I began looking for a new one. I found Mustangs to Fear and my body shop stated that if the Mustangs to Fear body kit fits as nice as they show it does, I will save at least five to six thousand in body work. I moved my car back to my house and after getting the kit I began to put the pieces on with clamps and sheet metal screws. It took me two hours to rough fit this kit on my car and everything fit like it was suppose to. The body shop manager came over to look at the kit and was amazed. He said that it was bitter sweet at how nice it fit and wished that I would have ordered the Mustangs to Fear kit first. The body shop manager also stated that I would save myself a ton of money. My opinion is that this kit is second to none and I spent close to 10,000 in kits to get where I am today. Unfortunately, I got to see the quality difference between the two kits and there is no comparison.

The body kit has arrived :-) !!!! I can just say one thing "helemaal te gek" that means more than awesome. Wow!!!! Everything is outstanding. I've never seen a body kit with quality like this. Then the grills, shiny, heavy, solid, I'm speechless.....
Thank you for everything and we'll keep in touch.

Let me start off by saying this has to be one of, if not the nicest, kits out there. Mustangs to Fear has taken all the trim and fiberglass work and reduced to a minimum, if any at all! I have used the other kits, they are junk, but I made them work. The hoods I had were terrible, so I had seen the ad on Ebay advertising a kit I had not seen before.
I called and talked to the owner, Rich, not someone who just knows part numbers, you talk to the guy who makes them! So I bought just the nose and hood, when I received it I put the nose on the car and it was almost a perfect fit out of the box. I put the hood on and got the same result.
I then decided to order the rest of the kit. I took all of my old stuff off the car we had painstakingly installed, keep in mind the rest of the car is done and ready for paint, and put all of the Mustangs to Fear kit on. It took me 1/4 of the time and was almost idiot proof. That is how nice these pieces are. It took me days to reinstall, not weeks of gluing, sanding, fiberglassing, filing the big bow out of the other “so called” premium hoods. The hood is awesome and required no fiberglass work at all, all of the quarter flares fit like a glove and are very solid. The spoiler bolts right onto a steel deck lid and once all parts are bonded on the car all you pretty much do is start seam sealing. Obviously, depending on how you hung the quarters, you may have a little filing to do.
If I would have had this kit when I started, I would not have wasted my money any where else. This kit will save you thousands with any body shop, and if you know anything at all about body work, there is no reason why your average Joe can’t install this kit. Rich has done all the hard work for you!!

I wanted to let you know how pleased I have been with the restoration and resto-mod work you have done for us. The 1966 Mustang Fastback draws attention every where I go. Your attention to detail, fit, finish and paint work are second to none. As you know we won best of show at several shows.
The most exciting was the 2005 Duck Tail Run (James Dean Festival) at Gas City, Indiana where we won best of show out of almost 2800 cars. I have had several people at the bigger shows come up and want to buy the car. My response is, "Sorry, it’s not for sale".
As you know I am a very picky person and some might even say hard to please. Well, all I can say is that I am very happy that you and I met. I found somebody that is as picky about perfection as I am and that person is you. I could not have been more pleased with the final finished product no matter who I might have hired to do it. I would put your work and attention to detail up against anyone in the country.
Oh ya, I better not forget to again thank you for the finished product on my 1968 Mustang convertible. You took it from a diamond in the rough to over the top beauty. This is one that I will never forget. An Eleanor Convertible with many modifications that turned out to be the most beautiful car that I have ever seen. Obviously, we are not the only ones that think so, as both of these cars are the main attraction at any car show we go to. The fiberglass part and again the fit, finish, detail and paint are second to none.
My wife and I both thank you for doing our cars and doing them to the detail as if you were doing them for yourself. You’re the best and you can count on us being return customers.

Hello Rich and Michele,
In October of 2006, I began restoring (restomod) a 1967 fastback. I spent many hours scouring the Internet and eBay looking for parts for my project. I happened across an Eleanor kit on eBay and decided to investigate further on the company's web site. As the Mustangs to Fear web site opened and I browsed through the tabs, it occurred to me that this company seemed to be different. I was very impressed by the well written product description for their Eleanor kit. Never had I considered building my project with an Eleanor kit, but for curiosity one day I sent an e-mail requesting some pricing on the nose and the hood pieces. My e-mail was responded to very quickly (unlike most sites today), the prices were very reasonable, and the e-mail was incredibly friendly. I could have deleted the e-mail, but something told me in the back of my mind to save it for now.
As my project progressed, my curiosity peaked and I decided to call Mustangs to Fear to ask some questions regarding their kit and other kits on the market. I spoke to Michele initially who was incredibly friendly and helpful. When the questions became more technical, I was transferred to Rich who answered every question professionally and honestly. I am by no means a body man and I have never worked with fiberglass before. I had read the other testimonials on the Mustangs to Fear web site and realized that they were right, I am actually talking to the owners, to the people that make and install the kits themselves! After less than a half hour on phone with Mustangs to Fear, I was convinced that with these people, their products, and their assistance-I could have my own version of an Eleanor. I called a few more times to clarify some questions and I was always greeted by Michele and immediately transferred to Rich if she could not answer the question. There was no leaving messages, no machines, and no frustration.
I purchased a complete kit and some other items to make the installation much easier. Mustangs to Fear have taken the guesswork out of installing the kit by providing all the other brackets, lighting, and more in a one-stop store. Now if I have any questions or problems, I only call one place to get the right answer! When I could not understand the answers on the phone, Michele e-mailed me photographs of the parts in question so that I could print them off and bring them right into the garage with me. Rich and Michele even took time out of their busy weekend to make up an instructional DVD to send to me that answered all my questions. Because they actually install kits as well, they made their instructional DVD while building one of their own cars. They made the DVD and shipped it within three days to me in Canada. What other company has ever gone to this length for support!
I cannot say enough about Mustangs to Fear, Rich and Michele, the quality of the products, and the sincerity in which they want you to succeed installing their products. I will continue to send pictures of my project as it progresses.
Sincerely, Steve J., Ontario, Canada
