Review & Install Video
The Black Hood Accent Decals I have here today are a great option for any F-150 owner out there that's after an inexpensive and a quick to install appearance decal kit. It's gonna help accentuate the lines on your truck's hood while also complementing and playing off their blacked out bits that you might have on your truck. And the install here is gonna call for an easy 1 outta 3 wrenches on our difficulty meter here, about a 30 minute to an hour job, and we're gonna show you how coming up real soon.
So your truck looks great on its own, so why bother adding something like this to your F-150, but more specifically, your hood? Well first and foremost here, guys, the lines on the 2015 through current F-150s hood are great, they're massive and robust, but you really feel like they're lacking something, they almost seem to get lost in the sauce and hidden among all that gloss paint. So this blackout vinyl brings out the lines of your hood. It makes it more prominent and aggressive. So if you're after a retro race-inspired look, maybe something that looks a little bit like the current generation Raptor but a little bit more sharp. Or you just wanna bring out some of the lines on your hood, this is gonna be a great place to start. And these are a great alternative to painting your hood. And if you're on the fence about them, maybe you don't want a permanent change in looks, they peel off just as easily as they go on. Now additionally, I think this is a great option for owners that aren't too into the idea of the larger hood decal we carry. I think this is a nice alternative for someone who wants to do something that not everybody has on their truck.
So looking into the construction, this is a high-quality 4 mill wrapping cast vinyl, which is typically used when your wrapping high-end cars. Now this material has a built-in, protective, clearcoat layer up top that's designed to last upwards of eight years of use no matter what part of the country you're from or whatever type of weather your truck's gonna be seeing. This is an incredibly strong vinyl when you're comparing it to something like a thinner calendared style, which is gonna come apart or fade pretty fast. And something I really like about this and all the vinyl that we use here, is that it features something called an air release technology. And that's gonna be on the adhesive side, which means that when you're working out all the air and moisture from under this during the installation process, this material isn't gonna fight you and it's not gonna bubble up or form any type of wrinkles.
So looking at the pricing here, guys, expect to be spending only around 20 bucks to get this on to your truck, which isn't all that bad considering that this is a high grade of vinyl, a styling add-on that's gonna set your truck apart from the rest of the pack.
Now install-wise, just like I had said a little bit earlier, you're looking at very easy 1 outta 3 wrenches on the difficulty meter here, about a 30 minute to an hour job, only needing a small water bottle and a soap solution. So there's really not much at all getting these on. In my opinion, it is considerably easier than doing the larger hood decal or any other type of vinyl, because you know exactly where these are gonna be going.
So you're gonna wanna start by taking a small amount of soap and a water bottle, mixing that together. And then you're gonna wanna spray down the sides of your hood where these are gonna be going. The reason why you're gonna be doing that is so when you go to place the decals on the hood, it's just gonna buy you some time getting everything to place and making sure that they're in position. Now I will throw it out there that while it is not the largest piece of vinyl out there, it's always a good idea to have a second set of hands or eyes around you to get them into place, along with making sure everything is lined up. But once your satisfied of where it's located, you can then work the air and moisture out with the provided squeegee, and then you're good to go.
So that'll wrap up my quick view of the Black Hood Accent Decals, fitting the 2015 through 2017 F-150, that can be found right here at americantrucks.com.
