I'd have to see it on a Fusion first... No offense, but it just looks like a metal louver vent plastered on a Fusion hood. :shock:

I could be wrong, but I think I'd rather see it on a Fusion first.

ugly, its way too high and its made of fiberglass....just get a VIS carbon fiber hood once they start making them. Fiberglass is not gonna fit well i think.

Almost all aftermarket hoods are fiberglass...if it's a quality hood it will fit with no issues. Here is the driver and passenger side body seams on my current fiberglass hood.
Hoods on the production ended Chevy Camaro SS and all Corvette hoods along with a few others are fiberglass from the factory.

Yeah, my buddy that does all the paint work on my car said it'll fit like shit. But I still think it's a cool hood.

Does it look like its a quality hood? its on ebay for gods sake. I know manufacturers use fiberglass but i would def go with a better company or reputable brand if your going for that look. Ive worked at a body shop @ a ford dealership so i have experience with shit people buy off ebay and try to put on their car (specially on fords with all the crap they make for focuses)

Backside,
Your original statement was..."Fiberglass is not going to fit well I think"

My comment is that certain fiberglass hoods do fit and they have for years on many cars. I made NO comment about this particular hood!

I would like this fiberglass hood, but without the vents. There
are any carbon fiber hood for the fusion. Can I paint a carbon fiber
hood to any color, or you can't?

Yeah you can paint the carbon fiber hood. Carbon fiber is designed to be lightweight and strong, not look cool.

[/quote]your factory hood is most likely made of fiberglass... the exterior part anyway... laid over a metal frame.
