The new hood is not quite as clear as the paint. so I am wondering what you might recommend on the gel coat? as a start and then something with a high UV protectant to keep it from yellowing.
Okay I gotcha. I guess my answer is somewhat the same but I would now just use those polishes I listed on the carbon fiber pieces. The polishes will help make sure the surface is optically clear and shinny. I would continue to polish them at least 1 - 2 times per year to keep them clean and clear.
After you are done I would use a good combination of sealant and wax to protect the carbon fiber and other painted surfaces. I put down a sealant first because they are more durable and follow up with a wax for added protection and that really deep gloss.
Here are two of my favorite combinations:
Chemical Guys Jetseal 109 - sealant
Chemical Guys 50/50 Limited Series Concourse Wax - wax
Blackfire Wet Diamond w/polycharger - sealant
Dodo Juice Wax (pick the right wax based on your paint's color) - wax
Both of these combos provide exceptional results! If you need more advice please let me know!
