Carbon fiber hood
 
Since I need to get a new hood, I'm leaning towards getting the full carbon fiber hood from black ops. Is there any special things I need to do to maintain the hood? Will the carbon fiber fade over time?

Keep it waxed and if you really want to add a layer of protection you could always run it for a while then have it clear coated down the road.

May be a clear Bra on the nose for the winter salt and such IDK?

I have multiple carbon fiber parts from Black Ops and none of it has faded.....even the engine bay stuff. I keep a good coat of meguiers #21 sealant and carnuaba on it.

could probably 3m clear bra the whole hood, not just the front edge. I think 3m has a UV protectant.
