Installed mine last night. Nothing lines up and the color doesn't match. I'll be ordering a Ford Performance panel. I'll put up with those stupid lines before l put up with how bad the Accelatec panel fits.
Try the MP panel from American muscle. About the same price and everyone who has installed it, likes it and has had no issues it seems.

Well the Accelatec one I received didn’t fit to my liking. So much for my optimism. Lol. I will be returning it and getting the Ford Performance panel with the small horizontal lines on it. I was really hoping this Accelatec would fit properly, and it didn’t.

Anyone know if the Ford Performance panel has a dimple in the center?

As far as I’ve seen it does have those horizontal lines on it, and no holes or dimples in between those lines. American Muscle has it for 145.00 I believe. I have my Accelatec ready to be shipped back for a refund.

Well if they ask for pics they’re out of luck. I reinstalled my stock one until the one I just ordered gets here, I’m not reinstalling it just to send them pics of it not fitting. I didn’t realize one of their terms of conditions for a return would be a pic. Wonder if they do that for everything they sell?

My Accelatec decklid panel was fitting tighter to the passenger side and was about 1/4” below the taillight bezel. I didn’t get any pics of it as I reinstalled my stock one until the Ford Performance one I ordered comes in. Returning for refund to CJ tomorrow.,

Are you going to replace it with the FR version? Since I don't want to take this one off until I have a replacement, I guess I'll have to fork out $150 for a new panel and them wait them them to credit me.
