It fits really good, even the guys at the Ford body shop said so. I think their direct quote was "typically carbon fiber hoods don't fit at all and look really bad, but this one fits as good as the OEM hood."

The only complaint I have is I could not get the latch off the old hood and the supplied latch is round and so is the push bar. I still haven't found out how to fix that...

Oh and do not take this to a drive threw car wash. I had a chip in the clear coat and the sprayer took off a 2" round chunk of clear coat.

This is for all models of the Focus ONLY. If you'd like, feel free to email me, PM me or message me on AIM with the year and model Mustang you're referring to and I'll make sure you get a good deal.

Sadly, we don't make an aftermarket hatch. If there's enough interest, it is definitely something I can forward to my Product Development team!

Still working on it! I'm going to let this thread run for a couple weeks and see where it lands.

Absolutely you can pick it up locally. You sir, just saved yourself some money by living in southern California! (kinda like switching to Geico, but not really lol)

^^^For once living in Cali has made something cheaper, lol.

I would be in, but I already have a fat discount coming to Me. Maybe I'll use My discount on the trunk lid and buy My hood though this group buy...

I think it might just be my car...the previous owner did hit a deer...



See even the stock hood has a little gap there.



Even on the temp hood...a little gap. I thought that was just the 05-07 thing...

yeah, that gap is pretty much normal on any 05-07 focus. You notice it more at a low angle like these pics, and with contrasting colors. Not so much on LG or Black. If you have the stock chrome grill it looks entirely different too.
