    I'm thinking of wrapping my B5 Challenger hood in 3M Black Satin... With the help of RS I can approximate the build date/week so armed with this info. how long after the build should I wait? I would think the paint needs to fully cure/harden/de-gas before applying the wrap? I ask because there may come a day when I want to un-wrap the hood to reveal an unblemished factory painted hood. Thanks!

    i doubt you got your car before the paint was less than 30 days old

    it was probably 60 days+

    Thanks for the info.! I'm just planning ahead as the car is not scheduled for production until the week of 4/27 and delivery around 5/15 (+/-).

    just to temper your expectations....add a month to that schedule. Most of us have had our planned production build weeks slip 2-3 times.

    You can wrap on day one. Wrapped mine yesterday, took delivery 12/26. Only reason I didn't do it sooner was the very cold weather we had over the winter.
