Does your 'Maro have stripes? Looks good btw....

 

Just some hood spears on either side of the cowling.

 

Thanks.

The fact is that if your vinyl is etched so much that it's actually physically damaged there may be nothing you can do but replace it.

 

Short of that sVRT will make it look as good as it possibly can.

Watch Dylan's video from about the 3:30 mark - he talks about Brilliant Glaze containing a solvent that cleans when wet.
 
FWIW, PaintTech, I'm happy with Brilliant Glaze and SVRT on my Shelby's matte black stripes.


Been using Brilliant Glaze since the day it came out... Love the stuff...

Just searching for best course since.... mY ENTIRE ROOF is vinyl!!!! Haha. That's a lot of vinyl to care for. Imma try Brilliant Glaze and quick sealant on hood and if that goes well... Hittin the roof panel the same.

Thanks Adam's and Dylan for the great video! Brilliant Glaze followed by SVRT is exactly what I was looking to achieve.

Has anyone used Adam's new Wash n Wax on cars with stripes?  How did it go?

Thanks for the tips.

Sorry for the thread resurrection, but I have a Camaro SS 1LE with a vinyl hood.

I love Adams, but the VRT is the weakest product they make. I have sent pic after pic of VRT running down my paint after rain to Adams. I can't imagine a worse suggestion than applying VRT to a large scale area like a hood.

Anything else available?

I plan on using Brilliant Glaze on my factory matte vinyl hood decals per the OP. That said, the bottle states that Brilliant Glaze should not be used on vinyl or trim. Has the formula changed in such a manner that Brilliant Glaze is no longer recommended?

 

Thanks in advance

Don't know, but why not use the new Matte Detailer?
