That pattern of stripe would be called a variation of the 1969 Boss "reverse C stripe" used on the original as well as the recent Mustang Boss 302 of 2012. It really works well on the Fiesta too!

Not available at this time. I could find no such offering at the most common sites that sell Fiesta graphic kits here in the states. You could just download the image file and have a local graphics shop work one up for you that is similar. I like the side stripes but the hood does not appeal to me. My guess is those graphics were painted on the ST at SEMA. They may never have existed as vinyl.

I may go for a set for my ST, possibly get the roof wrapped and then something for the bonnet to finish it off.

Been thinking of the original Boss hood design but not sure it'll work with the Fiesta's bonnet shape, it'll look like those terrible 'Euro look' cars from a year or so back instead >_>

As soon as hes got the template sorted any colour vinyl you like or carbon fibre look alike

I'll be getting black as of blue car, but on a black car its personal preference tbh if you've painted the callipers a nice colour match it with them but like i say personal preference :) have what you want and want you like!

I think 3M corporation offers a reflective black vinyl. I do not know if they market their vinyl products in the U.K. It was first used here in the late sixties. It is very subtle in normal daylight, but at night gives a very interesting sparkling grey reflection when under artificial light. That would look very sharp to have what are literally "glow in the dark" stripes on a dark colored Fiesta.

For black you really want white if you want the Boss look, otherwise go with whatever you please. I'm going for white on my Molten Orange ST, don't think I'll bother on the ZS.

I looked a little deeper at what was offered back then. A 1970 Boss 302 buyer could get the reflective black material as O.E. Ford and other manufacturers were trying to give muscle cars some political correctness by offering "high visibility" or "safety" as a feature on muscle cars. Insurance companies were starting to punish the buyers of these cars with high rates. So,just like the decade they came from, it looks like pretty much anything goes!
