Only had it for a few weeks...but so far so good.

From what I've heard, it should hold up fine for 2-4 years. The way I look at it, it protects the OEM paint and is cheaper than a new paint job!

As for care; just wash with water/soap and touch up w/ a Quick Detailer. The glossy (not matte) vinyl CAN be waxed with something like a Meguiar's Quick Wax...but you should double check w/ the Vinyl maker. Matte shouldn't be waxed...and neither type should be polished w/ any compound. Hope that helps!

Sure. The "humps" on the hood are raised compared to the stock hood, and I'm working w/ Aero Jacket to develop an "air splitter" in carbon to go over the cutout. Pics of production below:

Ran into a little issue with the wrong barrels (40 bolt instead of 42 bolt) - so waiting for stock on the right ones. Should be soon
