$74.99 (pair)FREE Shipping
Hey Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m here with a very unique hood stripe option for all 2013 Mustangs, I’m referring to our AmericanMuscle Graphics outer hood stripes, available in your choice of either matte black, silver, white, and gloss black. The truth is, even though GT500 and lemans stripes look great on Mustangs, they’re probably one of the most commonly used vinyl designs out there, if you agree and you’d like something a little more unique for your Mustang, then these outer hood stripes may just be for you. Taking a closer look at the stripes here on our 2013, you can see what the design consists of, the two stripes cover the low lying portion of the factory hood, while leaving the center bulge and the two vents exposed. If it were up to me I’d probably pair these stripes up with some of our hood vent accents available on the site here and personally I think that’d be pretty badass but ultimately it’s up to you to decide. It is worth pointing out that these stripes are produced using what is called premium cast vinyl, this is one of the most durable vinyls available on the market today, and is designed to last for years on your ride without fading or peeling. In addition, our crew in the vinyl shop spends countless R&D time, testing and tweaking each design on our very own cars here in the shop, so you can expect a perfect fit for your ride. Because the fit is so dead on, the installation of these stripes should actually be pretty easy. Of course you’ll want to make sure you have your spray bottle with soap and water mixture, the included squeegee, along with the detailed instructions before you get started. Since you’re going to use the edge of your hood here as a guide, this project should be way easier than some other vinyl projects you may attempt. Because of this, you can expect to spend about an hour from start to finish on this job. The GT500 or lemans stripes will no doubt always be a favorite of Mustang owners everywhere, but if you want to give your 2013 a look totally unlike any other Mustang out on the road, then be sure to check out a set of these outer hood stripes available from AmericanMuscle Graphics.

I have a 2014 and discovered that these stripes were not the proper size for the hood. I had to cut off about an inch from the end by the headlight and had to trim the top by the windshield as the curve wasn't right. I have them on, but not sure how long they will last (especially that thin strip as the inch I cut off was where the thin and thick strip tied together). Other than fit, they went on well and look great. I get lots of compliments on them.Helpful (1)

Decals came in round packaging but had two bends in it. Laid the decals out on my wife's dining room table for couple of weeks. In order to get the bends out. Stacked books on top of the decal. Poor packaging. Small border stripe a pain to say the least. Decided to do option #2 and cut it off. Made install a lot easier. Use lots of water. Actually installed mine in a light rain. Guess god is a mustang fan.Helpful (0)

Do pin stripe separate
My 1st time doing vinyl stripes. Did back quarters before putting these on so if I screwed up it would be so noticeable. Didn't like the added paper on top of stripes, made it harder to line up w edge of hood. If I was to do this again I would cut pin stripe away from main one and install after. Trying not to push the pin stripe while working bubbles out was a pain! It also stretches more as youre pulling the top paper off so there's a bit of extra you have to contend with. My only big gripe is the wrinkle in drivers side from the way it was packaged. Not a bubble, just a wrinkle going across main stripe.Helpful (7)

hood stripes for 2013 stang
i found it better to cut it out spray your hood with soap water mix and peel back off 3m side too then use soft rag to get water off , a lot less air gets trapped under stripes, then u can move it right into placeHelpful (9)

Instructions that came with vinyl kit was very straight forward. Follow instructions and have someone there to help. It's important so you can lay the vinyl down where it needs to go. I bought the vinyl install kit which aided in installation.Helpful (10)

How well will these hold up to going through the car wash?
The American Muscle Graphics Black Outer Hood Stripes can go through a car wash safely, but if you are using a power washer or any high pressure wash keep the nozzle at least 2 to 3 feet from the vinyl.
Would these stripes work with the Cervinis Type 4 Ram Air Hood?
The Black Outer Hood Stripe Decals will only fit 2013-2014 Mustangs with the stock hood.
Does AmericanMuscle have outer hood stripes similar to these available for 2005-2009 Ford Mustang models?
At the current time, we do not have outer hood stripes similar to these available for the 2005-2009 Ford Mustang models.
Would these stripes fit a 2010 v6?
Unfortunately, these stripes only work on a 13-14 Mustang. The hoods between the years are shaped slightly different, thus causing them not to fit properly.
Wondering if these stripes would fit on a 2010 v6 mustang.
The hood on a 2010 Mustang is a different shape and size than the hood on a 2013 and 2014 model Mustang. Unfortunately, this will not fit on your 2010 V6 Mustang.
I think so. But your question us purely one about style. But in my opinion, I wouldn't do it.
