    Getting ready to do the matte black hood wrap and want to know preference on Avery vs 3M.
    I searched for the wraps and found some quite useful posts but, not sure which material to use.
    TIA

    Do you have any stripes or black hood cubeman? Billet looks good with stripes or hood/roof

    Really thinking about the hood, But with my current issue with warranty work I'm not sure if SRT is taking the car back or not. Monday i'm receiving another call from SRT on what's going on.

    My 08 (In my avatar) had the carbon fiber stripes and it looked great. My only issue with vinyl wrapping the hood black, while most car guys get why. Regular people think you couldn't afford to paint the hood.

    I agree on both fronts with you. Don't spend the $ if Chrysler is buying it back. That doesn't sound very pleasant (I hope it works out for you). Non car guys just don't get it and prob couldn't tell the difference if you didn't say anything. Did you see that thread last week of the charger wrap that was a white build and Was a complete graphite wrap of the whole car?

    By my sig it's kind of obvious I'm a car guy, my restorations are some of the top in the country.
    I Just want to try a wrap using the best material and if we like it, if so I'll shoot the hood in organosol black or base /matte clear in my booth.

    99.9999% of people looking/commenting on my hood have no idea that its wrapped (with 3M 1080 Satin black)

    Same here. I mentioned the same thing on another thread. The 3m 1080 satin black is spectacular especially when administered by a seasoned pro. When I went in to my dealership for a oil change, they had a brand new HC with the black hood option and no one could establish that mine was wrapped. In fact some people commented that the hood on my car looked flawless.
