Hey Guys....I'm in the process or thinking of getting my hood wrap with 3M matte black finish and my question is for those who had their car wrap how durable is this tape against stone chips and i guess how does this fair against the weather(extreme hot and cold). And also I was told that you cannot wash the car on those touchless car wash because the pressure of the water is too strong and could peel the tape off. I just want to cover all angles cause i don't wanna spend money and to have to removed the tape and throw the money down the drain....thanks

From what I can gather, that stuff is pretty tough. Should resist stone chips better than the clear coat.
I don't know about car washes, but I assume that if it's applied correctly with some overlap onto the underside of the hood, it should hold up fine.

I would shoot a message to Zoup (flat black wrap) and Nordic Wagon (flat titanium wrap) just in case they don't see this thread. Let us know what they say if you get some info from them.

I got this done last friday..i was supposed to get matte black but the guy who was doing the wrap was given the wrong material by his supplier and got carbon fibre instead and so instead of me leaving empty handed I decided to go with the carbon fiber wrap...here's some pics.....:D

It looks pretty close to matte. I like it.

not sure what wrap you have as all you posted was that its 3m.
3m has two lines now. The older 3M Di-Noc is indoor AND outdoor use. The new line is 3M Scotchprint 1080 (include colors & textures, CF, & brushed aluminum). Both have I believe 1yr horizontal warranty & 3yr vertical warranty. The new Scotchprint CF differs from the Di-Noc line as its not as perfectly symetrical. Also, the Scotchprint is easier for larger areas & contours.

KEEP IN MIND, that removal may damage what it is appied on, the substrate.

that's a good point....I'm not sure about which kind it is but the box that it came with is 3M and the guy said that it would not damage my paint if I decide to remove it so i'm guessing it might be the scotchprint....

O wow not bad at all. How's the durability with weathering and extreme hot and cold? R those prices with everything (materials and labor)? Thanks Jeff!
