Racing Hood Stripes V1
Let's go racing boys and girls! We just wanted to make something for the Bronco Raptor in particular. This design follows the natural vent lines on the upper hood and continues them down to the front.
NOTE: 2 sets are sold at a reduced price. Keep it as a backup or in case your first install proves to be difficult.
Matte black is one of the easiest colors to install in general. It stretches and responds to heat very well.
The gloss black we chose has air egress channels and that is why it is a little more expensive than standard colors. Air egress channels assist in providing a path for air to escape during installation (less bubbles). Some cost is also due to the fact that it is cast versus calendared.
All options have high outdoor durability ratings.
Clean the application area to prepare it for installation. Just use a wax free detailing spray if your vehicle is not too dirty. Make sure you also clean under the front of the hood as the vinyl will wrap around it.
NOTES: We recommend that the installation area be free of wax and not under direct sunlight. The center stripe is used for alignment so that you can space out the main stripes. It is removed at the end. See last product photos for a visual representation.
- Detailing Spray
- StickerFab Application Fluid or Soapy Water
- Heat Gun or Hair Dryer (optional but recommended)
- Felt Tip Squeegee (supplied)
3 items available as a kit here.
We always recommend StickerFab Application Fluid for these wet installs. In a pinch one drop of dish or hand soap in a cup of water can work also. Apply to the vinyl and install area so that the first attempt doesn't make the vinyl permanently stick to the surface. Then you can slide it around and push out the extra water once it is in place with your squeegee.
Try doing the install in the shade so it doesn't heat up the vinyl rapidly.
