The clear coat on the hood and roof took a crap last winter, on my red 2013 +, after rain purged under and froze leaving it bubbled like dead skin. Thought about repainting and decided to have the hood roof and mirror caps wrapped in satin black instead. The rest of the paint still fairing well had it buffed out and ceramic coated. Quite happy with the results, and love the satin finish on the hood when driving into the sun and bright areas, no more glare in the eyes!

Very nice Fred! Any special cautions or care needed for the Satin Black areas?
