American Muscle Pre Painted MMD Eleanor Style Side Scoops
 
Well, this is the first problem I've had with an American Muscle part. I bought them about 14 months ago, and today I was driving home on the highway in rush hour traffic, and the right side scoop just flew off. I had it all installed perfectly, with the adhesion promoter and all - and it just flew off. Didn't see if it hit another car or anything. Point is, it's gone.

And the killer is that I have a car show tomorrow morning, and I lost my job in August because I couldn't work enough hours (due to my classes) for them to justify keeping me on.

I'm fuming - and I don't know what to do.

That sucks, there are so many factors that could have lead to this happening. Not AM's fault. Take the other one off for the show, good luck!

I'm trying to see if my insurance company will cover it. I know they cover my aftermarket exhaust (after I got rear ended - they got me a new set of Flowmaster's just like the ones I had to begin with)

They probably got you the flowmasters because they are cheaper than stock.

Nothing you can do, it is an installation issue, not the part unfortunately

Why would your insurance company cover a $200 set of side scoops? Thats not an AM problem, its how it was installed/double sided tape issue.

Whether or not it was our fault, we still hate to hear when stuff like this happens to our good customers. I know it's not a huge gesture, but I'd love to at least get you a set at our cost if you do end up replacing them. Maybe that will soften the blow a little bit for you.

If you do, make sure to install them in a warm climate - a hot day in the sun after it's had time to bake is great. Making sure to clean the area with alcohol prep pads and then use the adhesion promoter. From there, let it sit for 24 hours to fully adhere and they literally should be difficult for you to get off!

Thanks again for being a great customer and we hope you still had a great time at your car show!

PM AMDanBailer or AMShaneLesky if you're interested in a replacement set at cost and we'll get you set up.
