I have a buddy who does the carbon fiber vinyl hood wrap on the first gen xB for 100 bucks. I'm sure the iQ would be less considering the size difference. What area do you live in?
The satin black looks great but I'm also a fan of the carbon fiber. It's all up to your taste and style. They would both look great.hey there surfcitylocal,im the guy in chilliwack, british columbia canada,i was at one of the very few places that offer such service yesterday,paint will be fixed on friday,then i will book to get the paint protection applied,i was quated at 160$ for the hood which i am doing first and 360$for the front of the car,mirrors included,but now that you got me thinkin,AGAIN,i could use the 60$ i would save if i seen your guy for gas and come see him HA HA HA,great excuse for a 20 hr drive.i like your price much better.as compared to mu nissan cube that had the hood done,it didnt get 1 chip in three years,but the iq hood sits much lowere and angles down.so thanks again for mentioning the wrap.do you think the carbon wrap would look okay,or should i just go with the clear wich would just show the sattan black,i ask you for the fact that you obviously have WAAAAAAAYYYY more car mod experience.peace.
Yes, it is removable and the color will last quite a long time. It's a much better grade of vinyl than what was available a few years ago.very nice,thank you kind sir,i am going to go with the carbon look,it is very different than your buddies but nice as well.and i guess its piece of mind knowing that underneath is my nice sattan black,like i said before,i wish i knew about this application before i put the 200$ out for the sattan paint,oh well,live and learn,and i have done allot of living and learning.do you know how and if it is even possible to remove this product if i were to chose to do so,allso can it discolour at all over time,thanks again for your help.PEACE.
Sorry but the paint has more than enough time to cure whilst shipping! Thats unless you're going for a full respray once you get it. Japanese paint is well known for being soft, if you want hard paint you go to someone like the German's (Audi/BMW)Gott let the paint full cure and harden if i were you before i do anything else. .. also do not tailgate people! lol
hey there fish,the chips are on the hood wich i had painted sattan black about five weeks ago,there are pics of this on my profile page.not sure if you realized that so i am just trying to clarify.when i go to get the hood wrap done i will decide then for sure if i am going to go clear,which then will keep the look of the sattan black hood,or i may go with the carbon fibre wrap,which would then cover my sattan black hood.peace.
