$49.99 (pair)FREE Shipping
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m bringing you a couple of different ways to customize your hood, thanks to the AmericanMuscle graphics hood accent decals, and the AmericanMuscle graphics boss style hood decals, available in three different colors for your 2010 and up Mustang. Both the boss style decal and the hood accent style decal are constructed from high quality premium cast vinyl, and are designed to last several years. As always with our AmericanMuscle graphics they are designed and produced right here in house and then tested out on our very own cars first to ensure a perfect fit every time. Basically, if they don’t work on our cars, they’re not going to end up on yours. The boss style hood graphic is designed to give your ride the same exact styling used on the 2012 boss and is available in either white, matte black, or gloss black. Now this would be perfect for someone who’s trying to replicate the entire boss look, by using the corresponding graphics found on AmericanMuscle.com , or if you just want to use the hood portion to give your factory hood a more aggressive appearance. Now if the boss style’s a little too drastic for some folks out there, then you might want to check out our AmericanMuscle hood accent decals, available in white, matte black and gloss black. Now these go on the side of your hoods cowls giving it a much more pronounced appearance. When it comes to installing vinyl, all you need are soap and water, a squeegee, and a little patience. A little tip to help the install go a lot smoother, it’s a good idea to remove the vinyl from the packaging first, and let it sit out on a flat surface overnight, that way when you do go to install the vinyl it’ll make life a lot easier. Now depending on what panel you’re installing, it should only take you a half hour to an hour from start to finish. Ford really broke the mold when they made the 2012 boss, especially when it comes with the model specific parts and graphics. So if you really want to emulate the styling of the boss, or you just want to change up the look of your factory hood, it’d be a great idea to check these AmericanMuscle graphics.

Nice to accent the hood of my 2012, but also ties my car into the theme I have going on. I really think they look nice only if they are even on each side. Took me a little longer than others reported but having it pleasing to the eye is something that I take very serious. Anyway, good product and would recommend to others who are looking for the same.Helpful (0)

Adds a nice look to the car.
I found that this was an easy way to add a very nice and noticeable change to the look of my car. It is very easy to install but make sure to take the time to properly prep and clean your hood before attempting install. Also, if you are unsure about your ability to install it is not a bad idea to get someone to help you if possible. Do not get into a rush and follow all directions and you will have no problems at all. My car is Kona blue and the white color looks great with it.Helpful (5)

I wasn't really sure how this would turn out with my hoodscoop, but it came out great! Could not be happier, I actually think that the accents look like fangs coming down in front of the hood scoop.Helpful (5)

Really sets it off
These hood accent details look awesome. It really sets off the cowl hood. Installation was a breeze, took me about 15-20 minutes. Always got looks and compliments before but it has definitely made it stand out more.Helpful (4)

The accent stripes or hood spears make my 12 GT look awesome! The install was easy, just be patient, get all the air bubbles out and let it dry completely before trying to peel off the backing paper. The stripes are high quality and I would recommend them to anyone!Helpful (5)

I have 2012 kona blue V6 and my questions is This white hood accent decal do match with my white rocker stripes OEM? Thanks
The White Hood Accent Decal (10-12 GT, V6) will match the OEM white rocker stripes as they are cut from the same material as the rocker stripes.
will the hood accent decal fit the Accessory package 5 hood scoop? My 2011 Mustang GT Premium has the accessory package 5 with the hood scoop, side scoops, window louvers, rear spoiler and trunk lid applique. The hood scoop is different than the standard hood scoop. Will the hood accent decal, which goes on the transition area between the flat hood on both sides of the actual hood scoop, still fit and cover the entire transition area? I am also looking at rocker side stripes and the rear fender decal, all in white to go on my Kona Blue 'stang. Thanks for your help!
Yes, your hood scoop is above this area
Apply before or after hood scoop? I plan to get the hood accent as well as the hood scoop for my 2010. But I will most likely buy them at separate times, and probably the decal first. If I were to apply the decal, would I run into placement issues with the hood scoop installation? Like would it overlap the decal or somehow cause it to peel off?
MY friend has both and it doesn't overlap. Looks good!!
