Are you saying there is wax residue on the hood?


If so, I would wash, then dry. Follow up with a mixture of 50/50, Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol/Distilled Water in a spray bottle. In the shade, spray generously and wipe clean gently with an MF towel. Repeat if necessary.


I would look into having the hood sanded and clearcoated (currently it sounds like its gelcoated). Furthermore, look into a paint sealant instead of a carnauba wax (more friendly for residue). When applying, apply very thin.

You're supposed to wax/polish the hood...its still clearcoat and needs to be shined up. If you have whitish/greyish areas on the hood that have no luster, then that could be the beginning of your clearcoat going bad (in which case it can just be re-cleared)

CF hoods come GELcoated. It is reccomended to sand that down and CLEARcoat them.

Right, thats true if you have to re-coat it. I was just stating that if it is dull or faded, that might be the reason. And that you are supposed to polish/wax it.
