Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Alex from americanmuscle.com. And today, I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the Black Hood Decal fitting the 2015 through current F-150. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this quick-to-install and very inexpensive mod is going to appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this, what you should expect to be spending, and then we'll take a very quick look at the installation, where I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour to get this onto your truck, and we'll have a little bit more for you on that later.So, the Black Hood Decal that I have here today should definitely appeal to any F-150 owner out there that's looking for a very quick to install mod that's sure to turn heads and set your truck apart from the pack. I personally think this is definitely a great mod for anyone just looking to throw a little bit more color up on your hood as the recessed area on the 2015 through current F-150s is just begging for it. I honestly think that this is definitely something that, in my opinion, is gonna mimic some of the looks of what you might find on a special edition of Roush F-150 or maybe even a Shelby F-150. Not only that, it's definitely gonna be giving you a little bit more protection, but I wouldn't expect much here as this is honestly just gonna be a vinyl Decal.So taking a look at the construction and materials here guys, this is gonna be something that is cut, designed, tested repeatedly in-house right here to ensure that you're gonna have a perfect fit installing this every time. Now, this is gonna be comprised of a four-mil cast vinyl, which is something that you're typically gonna find on high-end exotic car shops as this is gonna be a material that's typically used to wrap cars. Now a great thing about this material is that it's gonna feature an air release technology on the underside, which essentially means that you're not gonna have to fight the product like you would find with an inferior style material or something that you might find from a couple years back.Another cool thing about this is that this is gonna have a built-in clear coat layering on top. As you can see, it's definitely got a lot of shine to it. If that's not your thing, we will have this in a matte black option as well. One last thing that I really do like about this is that we're gonna have this backed by an eight-year warranty. So in the event that you're gonna have any issues, be it fading coming up over time, we're gonna have you covered here.So taking a look at the pricing here, guys, you should expect to only be spending about 30 bucks here. In my opinion, it's gonna be a huge bargain for what you're getting as this is going to install very easily. It's gonna set your truck apart from the pack, and give you a nice much needed dose of flare upfront as that recessed area is just begging for something up there. I honestly think that throwing a little bit of black on any light-colored truck is just great as it's gonna offset most, if not all, other mods you're gonna install or just looking to go for that Roush look. It's definitely gonna compliment your front end as well as your truck build.So, switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said up top, you're gonna be looking at a very straightforward one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor to get this onto your truck. So the installation process here alone is a huge selling point for me as well as you're not really looking at rocket science here. You're simply gonna need the provided squeegee that we're gonna have in the box for you, a little bit of water and soap mixture to essentially coat your hood to get this into place, and a little bit of patience.What you're gonna wanna do is take a little bit of soap, get it into a water bottle, coat your hood really nice and get it saturated, just so you can get this into place, and then use the provided squeegee to move the excess moisture out. Now, one thing that I would definitely suggest doing is make sure you have a second set of hands to get this onto your truck. The F-150's hood is definitely on the massive side and it can be a little bit tough if you're gonna do this by yourself. So, it's just a great idea to have somebody else there to help you get this into place, and make sure it's fit and secure.All right, guys. So, just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. I definitely like this option, not only based on the fact that the install is a breeze like we just saw, but the fact that this is not gonna cost you an arm and a leg, like what you might find with some custom shops, the quality materials here, and lastly for the fact that you're gonna be giving your truck some very aggressive looks, again, something like what you might find from the special edition Roush F-150 and not looking like every other F-150 out there on the road. So that's my quick review and breakdown for the Black Hood Decal fitting your 2015 through current F-150 available right here at americanmuscle.com.
