    I had my hood wrapped in 3M satin black. Anyone recommend a product to protect/enhance it? image.jpg

    all my vinyl is flat black.. its mandatory I wipe all dry with a micro fiber to avoid spots.. however I too would like something to at least hide what stains remain without sacrificing the flat look

    The guy who wrapped my hood suggested I use this.

    So far it has worked good. Use it after I wash the car to wipe the hood down. My hood is wrapped in Avery Dennison satin black film.

    The guy who wrapped my hood said to use water and on stains to use 70% rubbing alcohol.

    I have 3M Flat Black vinyl on my hood. Ever since I picked up my 2001 Viper GTS, I have used a mixture of Isopropyl (or Ethyl if you can find it) Alcohol mixed 2 parts alcohol to 5 parts distilled water (as recommended by the car detail man at the CAAP Viper Plant) in a spray bottle to clean and detail my cars. It removes bugs, tar, daily grime, water spots, etc. with use of a microfiber cloth. I have no swirling or damage to the painted finish and it cleans the vinyl as well without any spotting or shiny spots. I recently had PPF applied to the front fascia of my Hellcat and the installer used the same thing to clean the fascia before application and all through the installation / smoothing process as well. He was surprised that I knew about this detail "trick". When I had the hood wrapped, they used the same mixture as well. For "troublesome" bugs that the alcohol / distilled water mix won't get off (this is rare) use a wet fabric softener dryer sponge. It has never failed me and is also another detail "trick". Neither method takes off any wax or harms the finishes.

    I have been using Aerospace Protectant 303 since 2012. Supposed to have UV protectant. Should not be applied in direct sunlight.

    I have a 2014 Bentley Mulsanne that is completely wrapped in satin white. The only product that I trust using on it is Dr. Beasley's matte products. They are not cheap but you know the saying - you get what you pay for. Easy to find on Amazon.
