Should be in exterior mods.

That being said, it's kind of a gamble.

The glue holding the fiberglass frame under the hood tends to melt and drip over time. That and the weave can be crooked because APC has some pretty shoddy quality control.

I thought all or most of APC's products were made in China? Wouldn't that make them crap by default?

i bought it, i love the style and it looks great in all the pics ive seen of it installed on focus's. $425 shipped is a great deal, so i went with it, if i dont like it i can resell it.

Had an APC cf hood on my old ZX3.It was a p.o.s. .The fitment was good,but the quality sucked,and the clearcoat was shot after less than a year.Wouldn't buy another APC product if you put a gun to my head
