Re wrapped hood

After my OEM hood wrap was damaged from a detailer. I decided to re wrap in carbon fiber. Very happy with result....

Wow, that is definately different.

Do you plan to have the rear spoiler done to match the hood?

Very nice! I have thought of this myself. I am guessing you used the good (3M) stuff? Was it difficult?

That looks really nice!!! Does the material have a warranty?? I know the 3M carbon fiber was only 3 years on VERTICAL surfaces only. If this stuff is better than it would be a huge deal

super cheap. When I rewrapped mine I specifically stayed away from CF as it tends to discolor easier and the "waves" that it visulally creates with the raise in the hood.....I didnt want it to look too wavy or not aligned properly. Yours looks pretty good!

How is the upkeep compared to the OEM matte black. That's the main reason I would switch. I'm hopin the carbon can just be wiped down.

I know the original matt black can be taken off and the original paint stays intact - with a little detailing, will look great. But, is it the same for the Hexis?
