Thanks Peter. I had done a search for "hood script" and nothing had come up. Figured you would know...you are man! Thanks for pointing me in the right place.

Searching for terms can sometimes be a bit of a game in that members sometimes use various terms for the same thing. Don't give up. ;)

My 2017 Explorer. Special thanks to @jonnoriega for his posts and upgrades. I used a lot of your posts as inspiration for my own upgrade (i.e. Velgen wheels and H&R springs). Next upgrades are tint for driver and passenger windows and black ford nameplates front and rear.

How many times have you redone the powder coat and vinyl wrap? I've lost count. :crazy::laugh:

Nice vehicle but from looking at the last picture I would guess the front side tint is too dark and the windshield tint goes too low. Did you check the tint laws in your state before applying it? I think the pinstripe is a nice touch.:thumbsup:

Could be. No issues with it where I live. Never have a problem unless you drive like an a$$ here.

Windows look a bit darker when you look at them from certain angles.

Thought I would post and update. I finally had a moment and installed the Hood Letters on my Limited. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. Here's a before and after picture:

2015 Ford Explorer Sport
I spent the last couple of weeks washing, clay barring, water spot removing, sealing, and waxing my 2015 Explorer Sport. It has 98k miles on the clock. At the same time I swapped out the Ford emblems for a Magnetic/gloss black emblem in the front and a matte black/gloss black emblem in the rear. I also debadged the rest of the liftgate for now.








I have both a gloss black and matte black Sport emblem. I'm looking for a black Ecoboost 4WD emblem about the size of the OEM emblem but I haven't found anything yet. If I find something, I'll use whatever Sport badge matches as they both go with the Ford emblem.
