Removing vinyl wrap from the hood

I am thinking about removing the matte black wrap from the hood since it looks a little faded with streaks and water spots it's hard to keep it clean.. anyone else removed the wrap from the hood on their 1le?

When mine gets a little worse I'm going to have it wrapped again but in a semi gloss black.

I used a vinyl cleaner on my matte black Rally stripes and it cleaned off very well. There were a lot of water spots, and a crusty white layer of something on them when I bought the car. I used the cleaner then a vinyl conditioner on them. The conditioner did make them a bit shinier into an almost satin but you don't have to put that on.

Agreed. Looks great and easier to keep clean. My car never sees bad weather and it's still a pain. Especially when other people feel the need to put there grubby fingers on the hood. Lol

I love the wrap. I personally think it looks great with the zl1 wheels, spoiler and splitter. My 1le and my brothers Hellcats

I replaced the original wrap because it was spotted up and looked like crap. That wrap lasted a year and a half. I had a satin black wrap put on last time and it looks great and is way easier to clean than the matte. Been 8 months now and no problems.

Why not get it painted instead of dealing with the wrap? Iíve had my car for 5 years and havenít had any issues with the wrap but if I did I think I would have the hood painted instead of getting another wrap.
