I got a vis 2 in carbon fiber hood for my vette. I have seen lots of hood fade real bad where Im stationed. At some point I will probably paint the hood to match the car. Just wondering if there is anything I can "put" on it or whatever to keep it from looking like crap later or if Im just SOL.

what you need to do to these hoods when you buy them is have them clear coated!!! because that clear gel coat crap they put on them offers no UV protection!!! just wash them with soap and water, scuff down wet with a grey scotch brite and have cleared....
even if they are hazey, or white looking, if it disappears when rinsed off with water, it will disapear when cleared..
Probably next week I'm going to get it clear coated with some red thrown in. Thanks Swiat 34 for the idea. Hopefully it will look pretty cool and not too ricerish.
Hey no problemo Bud! How about THIS idea, leave plain cleared CF stripes (clear only) and use the red-tinted clear on the rest! Assuming you have a red car, it'd look freaking AWESOME! Or even the word "CORVETTE" along the edges on both sides in plain clear. Kinda "ghost badging" where someone could read the nearest one standing next to the fender. Just to throw a few ideas around...
