There are a couple guys here that have done the entire middle of their hoods. I'd have to search to find the pics though.

WHEN i go thru a drive thru car wash, it has never affected my dipped wheels...
i prefer to wash by hand, but when i don't, i make sure its a TOUCH FREE wash with no guide rails.
i have had decent luck with them.
it should hold up unless there is already a nick or blemish in the dip itself. then it would just peel it with the water jets...

I went about 1" wider on each side. I also ran the pinstripe straight up. I'll keep messin' with it until I'm satisfied. I've changed it 3 times already. I went to a 1/4" pinstripe too.

Looks better, a little uneven. Looks to be a little closer to the drivers side. IMO I would just color-match the entire hood.

It's off just a little. The pic looks worse than it is. ( cuz I just went out with a tape measure ) Are you suggesting all plasti dip ? I did my daughters whole car and it was tough to get large surfaces to blend smoothly. I really don't wanna go in that direction.
