Review of the Weather Tech Easy-On Rock and Bug Shield Deflector on a 1999 Ford F-250


Today in our 1999 Ford F250 Super Duty we're going to install the Weather Tech bug shield, part number WT50035. Here's what a bug shield deflector looks like once it's installed. As you can see, it's a real nice, sleek and stylish deflector as it molds and contours to the front of our vehicle and the engine hood. It's made of an aerospace acrylic, so it's construction is very sturdy. It's also a scratch resistant surface, and once installed, will help protect the front of our vehicle from rock chips, bugs, and stains, that can build up over time. With included hardware and protectors, this bug shield is really easy to install as it uses manufacturer's existing holes on the bottom side of the hood. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install it. We simply use just a spray bottle with a soap and water solution, a clean rag, and a standard Phillip's screwdriver.

Now to begin our install, we first want to go ahead and clean the front edge of the hood where our bug shield is going to sit. So just using a soap and water solution, I'm going to spray it down and use a clean cloth to wipe it off. Next we're going to go ahead and pop the hood, so we gain access underneath on the inside of the hood. Now the area we're going to be looking at here, is the front edge underneath the top of the hood, and the four attachment points. These are pre-drilled holes in the hood, two on each side. So each process we do here to one attachment point, will get repeated identically on the other three. Now for each of our attachment points is a supplied self-threading screw and flat washer.

The screw will go through the flat washer, through the attachment point on the bug shield, and then into the sheet metal. Now let's go ahead and put the shield in place, and line it up with the attachment points. I'm going to start here in the middle two fasteners first. That'll hold it in place while I get my hardware started. Now when you tighten it down, be careful not to over tighten it. That's why I recommend just using a hand screw driver.

Now with the two center fasteners in place, I'm going to move to the outside two fasteners. Now with my last fastener in place, I'll just go head and double check all of them to make sure their nice and tight. Now with our shield fastened down, we can go ahead and close the hood. Now also supplied with the install kit is going to be four clear rubber buttons to help protect from the bug shield from hitting the paint. We can simply take it, peel it off, and locate the area where the shield is closest to the paint or the front of the vehicle. Now since we have a total of four of them, I'm going to put one on each corner, and the one here where the wind deflector is closest to the hood.

Now with the passenger side done, I'll move over to the driver side and repeat the same process. There you have it for the install and review of the Weather Tech bug shield, part number WT50035 on our 1999 Ford F250 Super Duty. .
