    No regrets here. Hood wrapped about 1 month ago. I just clean it with a mixture of Ethyl Alcohol / distilled water in a spray bottle and a microfiber towell. Mine is matte black rather than satin black, but I doubt that it makes much difference. Eazy - peazy!

    Or you could even consider buying the mopar shaker hood($1390...I think) like the one featured in fast furious 7. Just paint it or even wrap it in satin/ matte black... as per personal preference. I'm guessing this is for your sublime scat pack. You could make the scat even more versatile by adding the shaker feature(in black)

    Awesome look and you can still hold on to the original green hood as a spare for later and keep switching b/w both.

    Do it. I just mean it's a ***** to keep clean because 1) rain, 2) pollen and 3) tsc is a garage hog.

    PS. We use Dr. Beasley's to clean both hoods. (Avery Satin Black wrap on both).

    If it's a vinyl wrap just use a simple vinyl cleaner or spray wax or spot remover. Meguiars makes a good cheap one.

    Yes very cool. Is this a wrap company or a company that does it?

    i really want to do this.......but after owning a 2011 IE with white seats i said id never own another car that has special needs......i knew the painted version would be special needs, but it sounds like the wrapped version has just as many......i still may do it eventually.....i have to park next to one and see the difference in person.........sounds like a PITA
