If I got one, I wouldn't drive it home with the wrap on! It looks like a ricer civic with a primered hood, but it's your car in the end.

I'm going to keep mine on for a while, I feel like I'm one of the few people on this site that actually likes the way the black hood looks . If the vinyl starts to fade after a few years, I'll probably rip it off and get the hood painted semi-gloss black

That should look pretty sweet. I used to not care for the black hood but after seeing all these pics I love it. It's amazing how these few changes to the SS add up to a great looking package. I think the 1LE is the best looking factory Camaro so far.

I wan't to know how much the black hood reduces glare.... It may be worth leaving it on if its effective!

dang...Becky is lucky to be in Michigan...the GM product trainers down here don't know sh**. I told one of them not too long ago that the 1LE's DID NOT come with magnetic ride like the ZL1. He thought I was lying to him!



As a dealership employee...I shouldn't be getting info from a forum

and thanks sukxost

I don't know much about wraps. If you take it off does it cause any damage to the painted hood underneath?

I'm looking at ordering a 1LE in the very near future. Not knowing much about the wrap, how durable the vinyl is, etc., makes me unsure what I will do with the hood. The flat/matte look of the hood had kind of grown on me.

Take it off! I paid for a paint job, not a sticker!

When I order mine it will be one of the first things I do. I will eventually either paint it black or get a ZL1 hood/bumper combo for it.

My exact thoughts including the ZL1 Hood/Bumper.

Dump it. Immediately. I hate the hood and the fact that it doesn't come with a rotatable setup even though the tires are square. I'd rather have 4 ZL1 fronts with 285s.
