should i do the top of the scoop satin also.. or cf?

i want to do my roof satin also.. if it wasn't for the whaletail.. i would do cf.. but it would look odd since it would go from real to fake...

depends on what you are wrapping... roof should be relatively easy.
make sure to keep it moist til you get it where you want it.
a little soapy water does the trick, then squeegee it all out when you have it where you want.

For large fairly flat area like hood and roof I wouldn't really say hard just awkward cuz of the size. Helps to have someone there to help lay it flat initially and then work any bubbles out towards the edges til its all smooth and then trim.


I want to do my hood mainly cuz the paint is really really rough. Then hopefully get a certain cf hood eventually.
