    I have come across a few threads on the forum wherein some members indicated that they had wrapped their satin hood with XPEL Stealth (Satin finish). My question is, did you consider wrapping the rear spoiler with the same film?

    If I'm not mistaken the spoiler has the same satin finish as the hood and is also troublesome to maintain just like the satin hood. Is that something which should be considered? Any problems like damaging the paint/finish when removing the film? if in case you decide to that in the future.

    I don't know that it is the same. I did not do anything to my SRT8 spoiler or this one. Never had any issues washing it.
    The spoiler is a black plastic. Different finish. No issues. And my satin hood is wrapped in stealth. Whole car is wrapped actually. But hood and mirrors are stealth. The rest is just regular Xpel.

    Ok thanks. I never knew the spoiler was plastic, was always under the impression that it had the same finish.

    In the satin finish paperwork you get with your car, it states satin hood, fuel cap area, and spoiler.

    Exactly, that's what I also read and that's why I raised this question. Actually the fuel cap is also satin.

    I used Xpel stealth on my hood for protection purposes only!! I'm sure it would work for the spoiler!!

    Agree, the spoiler has the same satin paint/finish as the hood, albeit not on the same material. I do follow the directions for cleaning my satin hood the same as I do for the spoiler. Don't think you need to clear coat/protect the spoiler though, as it's not an area typically prone to rock chips and debris.
