Added a lower carbon fiber look piece to the lower center panel. Purchased from same maker as the upper piece added prior. The nice thing is the material matches and the pattern is in the same direction. I added 3 coats of ceramic coating for protection and easy cleaning. Install was easy. Alignment fairly good. The upper piece was a perfect fit and the tight fit made it easy to align. Not real CF but few pieces exist for most brands and a Ranger CF piece would be rare. But for my CF brake handle I still need to install.
I think the cover might make finding buttons easier as it help create zones and break up the flat surface of buttons.

1hp and 8 cool points when hood open.
Not needed but I liked the red.
Well made 1 piece injection molding.
Fits like OE. Larger opening and fits OE filter box.
10min install. I removed filter as it helps me to install and push from inside the box. Nice. Plus some free stickers and license frame.
I also see new muffler design posted in last week. I think new.
If you have read my build thread you know I have found tape throughout my engine and cab electronics. This black masking tape I believe is used to hood wiring harnesses to boards when transferred to assembly line. I assume when installed , being black it is either not removed or workers are leaving behind. In the engine bay I wonder if it ever fell to a hot location and caused the burn smell some mention. Under my dash on drivers side I have always had a small vibration which sounds like wires vibrating on plastic. Very lightly. Last night I was looking up under dash driver side and found more tape. With driver seat back I also found some under the seat. Will see over time if my sound is gone.
Not sure I can call it perfect. Based on another thread on subject I looked up some matte beige/tan film to try and cover.
In certain light it looked close so I cut it to fit. Film is good, easy to cut and install. I used paper cutter at work to cut even and hand trimmed corners. How it it?
Better than yellow warning stickers.
Not perfect, so somewhere in between.
Color and finish will be hard to get perfect.
To think an American Flag or Ford Logo might be better but would also stand out. The flag would to go upside down so when visor flipped it would show right side up.
What do you think? Keep? Try something else?
