Hood Decal

Anyone tried these new hood decals? I know the ones from LMR were Graphic-Express, and I read a lot of of, not the right size, shadows etc. I've also read how the NOS Ford stuff is just bubble city. My Mach needs a new hood decal, I really don't want to paint one on as I like the decal look.
Thoughts...?

Re: Hood Decal

I have an 04 SY had mine painted on glossy all the way to trunk I love the way the glossy looks on yellow. Either way is good.

Re: Hood Decal


The hood decals on my 2003 Mach-1 are finally starting to come off in small pieces!

It appears that it's already too late to do any repairs to the decals at this point, yes?

Here in late 2017, heading into 2018, what is the best option these days? Who is selling the best replacement decals? Since I'm afraid to try applying the replacement decals myself, what's a rough estimate of what a qualified person/company would charge to do a good job?

Thanks friends!

Re: Hood Decal

I just had my hood repainted and I got my stripes from Graphics Express.

http://www.graphic-express.com/ford-...ch-1-name.html

http://www.graphic-express.com/ford-...tripe-kit.html

I ordered them myself. They arrived in about a week or less. The paint shop put them own. They look great. I would highly recommend.

The paint shop charged $125.00 to put them on but I'm sure it was farmed out to someone else. They also put on the front rocker stripes (the fading Mach 1 stripe). The one in front of the door.
