Sadly I won't be wrapping my hood since it is actual cf :)


But I will be wrapping the roof. Was gonna do satin black but since I got the cf hood I am thinking about doing cf vinyl instead now.

Looks good. Sure 3M Di-Noc is nice, but pricey. Very easy to work with though.

You may be able to clear coat over that carbon vinyl. I've covered some A-pillars in the past and cleared over them to help protect against UV light. It seemed to help i think, although i had nothing to compare it to.

3M dinoc is ok for exterior but 3M 1080 is a much better choice.
