Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Added the perfect finishing touch
After buying a lot of the light trim and some other pre-painted parts, I HAD to do something about the hood. Like a lot of people who own a circa-2006 Mustang, I had the problem of the paint bubbling/peeling on the lip of the hood and spent way too much time trying to patch it with touch-up paint and so-on. I actually got online to shop for a new hood, and ran across this. I was a little leery, but decided to take a chance to cover up the paint problem and see if it added a little pop to the exterior. I am SO glad I did.
It only took about 30 minutes to install. The one thing I can suggest is really look over the installation diagram you get and take your time. I am one of the worst people when it comes to following any installation instructions...I just lose my patience easy...but after taking a few minutes looking at the attachment pieces and the diagram that came with it, and measuring things out a little, I could not be happier with the result.
It completely covers any of the paint issues and really just adds the finishing touch I needed on the exterior. Even when I do buy a new hood with a scoop down the road, I will keep this part and put it on the new hood...it just looks really cool to me. You don't see a lot of Mustangs with it...so you'll stand out in a good way.
