Hood Wrap Issue

So I tried to VRT my hood wrap tonight and it looks terrible. Are there any suggestions on how to completely remove the VRT from the hood.

There's an isopropyl alcohol solution that is recommended for cleaning. I've seen it posted / recommended here and elsewhere by vinyl wrap folks. Google and see what you come up with.

How did you do it? I use a sponge block for detailing and sparingly and meticulously work the VRT in back and forth in one direction.

It evens out after about a week and a couple washes.

If you are set on totally removing it, try a detail spray and work it in sparingly, rubbing diligently. If that doesn't help try a diluted citrus cleaner and keep it off the paint and from drying.

Be patient with the VRT and yourself. It's tedious but will work out in the long run. Always detail in the shade. Avoid sun at all costs.

After a few cleanings it will lose the shine.

Otherwise, for cleaning when it's extremely dirty: http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-Heavy...I1FWWK7VQ4VCAC

and for normal use: http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-Vinyl...I24D1RQQI0JMU3
