I think it looks pretty good with the Area 51! I probably would have preferred matte black roof/mirrors. And I think brushed silver door handles that match the grille bar would be look even better than body color.

I'm happy to see that the hood decal isn't too over-the-top. I was afraid it would have some cheesy "1st" icon on it.

Do you think aftermarket chrome handles would look ok on this 1st Edition?

I don't think shiny chrome will look good at all. To each his own, but I've removed/painted/plasti-dipped every chrome piece on my last three cars. I just think it looks really fake on everything except a luxury car.

Now if I can find a way to modify aftermarket chrome handles to get a brushed/satin silver look, that would be a different story.

Guess I am not a ‘car/truck’ guy deep down. I just don’t get how having a black roof is a feature one would want. Maybe on a bmw Mini Cooper at times and such though even on a miata ND hard top it does nothing for me. Well maybe on the older NC Club PRTH it looks good against a White body color.

Well, at least that would be the only gloss black areas one must keep clean vs an entire black color Mav :)

Also, that graphic on the hood, maybe with certain Mav colors might be ‘ok’ or good. Not seeing how it would look good with Area 51 but that is just my take. Slide graphic is fine.

Ever since I read a post on this site…those rims in this photo make me think I am seeing ‘P’ things that don’t belong on Rims lol. That plus the more basic gray coloring interior makes the XL hybrid of more interest then XLT due to these rims.

Though...I do confess...if ordering iconic silver these this graphics kit would probably be kick ass. wonder if ford will allow us to purchase it after the initial release? Guessing not though just the hood and side graphic film would be a nice addition to a base XL model I feel. One would figure there must be a zillion companies out there that offer this sort of thing to jazz up a ride.

Anyone can black out there roof with $20 of wrap vinyl on amazon. The rest will be a little more work to figure out. This will look good on the race red and white for sure.

Have to admit that is a cool feature. Sort of like what HD did with their tank graphic for an anniversary addition one year

I feel like it could use a third or forth offset interval to break up the repetition of the pattern. Also not fond of the color flecks; makes it look like the decal is chipped all to hell. Kind of iffy about the perimeter line being gloss while the main is mostly matte.
