If you're looking to make a subtle impact to the factory hood on your 2018 or newer GT or EcoBoost Mustang, then you might want to consider checking out this Accent Kit from the team at American Muscle Graphics. Now, this kit will ride the side of the raised portion of your hood to give it a little bit more emphasis, while the price point itself for the pair will hover at right around a hundred bucks. Install's going to get a strong one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here due to the design of this kit, but let's call it an hour or so from start to finish. And be sure to hang until the end of the video for our detailed walk through to come later on.So, I'm personally a big fan of vinyl for the simple fact that it does allow you to change up the look of your car, dramatically at times, but without being terribly expensive. And the best part is, if you don't like it or you eventually get tired of the look, you just simply pull it off. Now, I've had a few bouts personally with vinyl myself. And while I did enjoy the look of the GT 500 style stripes for a few years, eventually the time came when I was ready for a change and that meant just simply yanking them off with minimal effort. Now the look we are talking about, again, here today will appeal to the 2018 and newer owners out there who want to switch up the look of the hood on your new S550, but without making the rather expensive leap to an aftermarket hood which, as you know, also needs to be painted and quickly you're at right around a thousand bucks, if not more. So, that's where this kit from American Muscle Graphics comes into play. It's going to give that factory hood a bit more character, but without the big time investment.Material-wise, the crew at A M Graphics uses nothing but the best. Now, this does include that 4 mil wrapping cast vinyl which has been rated at eight years of extreme outdoor use, without fading or without peeling, thanks in part to the built-in clear coat layer up top here. Now, the bottom of the vinyl actually features what is called air release technology which will help prevent any air bubbles during the installation. Finally, you all should know that the crew at A M Graphics does test fit and tweak each one of these designs first on our own fleet of Mustangs before being sent out to you guys. So, expect a fantastic fit on your ride at home. But now we want to show you just what it takes to get this pre-cut kit installed on your S550 at home. So, without further ado, here is a quick walkthrough of the job and some recommended tools to get it knocked out easily.Tools required for this installation: a nice clean microfiber towel, this supplied squeegee, and a spray bottle of soapy water.All right, to start off, we have cleaned and prepped our surface just with a regular car wash. And we have a bottle of soapy water. So, what we're going to actually do is spray the area that we're going to be attaching this decal to. So, I'm going to start up here and go all the way down. We're going to start by peeling off the back here and also spray this down with that same soapy water mix. Go pretty heavy on this because you're just going to squeegee it out. Okay, so I'm going to start up here and work down while unraveling this. We're actually going to start over here by the quarter panel.All right, so what I'm doing now is I have this stuck on here. I'm going to try to get some more unwrapped here and spray it down. Just going to lay this over that soap down there and work this into position. All right, so what we're going to do next is take our American Muscle squeegee here and actually wrap it in a nice, soft microfiber towel. That way we don't scratch that new decal. Once you're satisfied with the position of your decal, what we're doing is we're following that hood bodyline all the way up to this top, the quarter panel. So, I'm actually going to start right here in the middle and work down towards the front of the car squeegeeing out that soap and water from underneath. So, one thing we're going to have to do is take a razor blade right here and, ever so gently, cut. So, we're actually going to take this piece off and just have our hood decal. Now we're going to repeat those steps on the other side.That's going to wrap up my install of the American Muscle Graphics Hood Accent Decal, for your Mustang. And for all things Mustang, keep it here at americanmuscle.com.
