1LE hood question (pics?)

Hi there,

Was wondering if anyone has attempted to peel the black vinyl off of the hood. It's the only aspect about the car I don't care for. Just wondered if there were any pictures of it around without the vinyl. Thanks!

Before I ordered it i already had planned on removing it. Don't get me wrong I did like it with the black hood but I like it so much better without.

If you have any trouble removing it use a hair dryer. Took my stripes off pretty quick.

This is what I did to remove my hood wrap. It was cold outside so I brought her in the garage, turned on the heater, and got a hair dryer. This is the result...
