Hood spears on the hood wrap

I want to break up the all-black hood on my Victory Red 1LE with red hood spears on either side of the scoop. Does anyone know if the hood spears will stick to the vinyl wrap on the hood? And will the Rapid-tack stuff that you spray on the hood to apply the spears stain or discolor the hood wrap? Thanks for any input.

It's a vinyl decal that runs the length of the scoop on each side of the scoop on the hood. I don't particularly like the black wrapped hood, nor do I like the black wheels much, but I like the suspension options, and I want to keep the factory markings and identity of the car, so everyone knows it's a 1LE. I just want to break up the sea of black on the hood a little. I'm also probably going to put some Yenko-style stripes on the side of the car.

Photoshop...
Just post a pic of your car where the hood is straight on to the camera and I will give you a good idea of what it will look like.

I'm think the application process of the spears will destroy the flat hood wrap in one way or another.

Well incase you haven't noticed the black 10 spokes are in high demand and if you really are not crazy about them I'd be willing to be you could sell them with in a weeks time on here. People have sold the complete wheel/tire set for as much as $4,000 on here. Just depends on how fast you want to sell them. If you price them at 3,000 or less for the complete wheel/tire set I'd be willing to be you'd have them sold by end of the day.

Leave it alone or pull the wrap.

Just saw what you did with the photoshop. I kind of like it--it breaks up the blackness of the hood. Thanks for the picture.

I had to have my vinyl hood re-wrapped and the guy used a spray made up of water, a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid and a capful of alcohol to apply the vinyl and it left no marks at all. and he rubbed the hell out of it for over 4 hours with a rubber squeegee wrapped in a paper towel. so I would think if you did the same thing , it should be fine. The vinyl was made by 3M. Hope this helps......

Can someone photoshop the checkered flag hood spears and the checkered flag Yenko stirpes from MnP Customs on a Victory Red 1LE? I'n not computer literate enough to do it, but I'd like to see what they look like before I consider buying them. Might be too much, though. The graphics on the hood would be red, and the Yenko stripes would be matte black. Any help would be appreciated.
