What is a carbon fiber hood wrap?
The carbon fiber hood wrap is a special kind of film that imitates the look of the expensive and durable material — carbon fiber. It looks like a high-tech black-grey mesh, and it’s almost impossible to distinguish a film from a real carbon fiber! The application of this tint will give your ride a sleek, stylish appearance.
Why do drivers choose to wrap their hoods in carbon fiber films?
Chicago drivers wrap their hoods in vinyl because it is a super easy and affordable way to upgrade the look of their cars. The hood is wide enough to become a surface for a variety of designs. Visible to everyone on the road, it makes your ride truly stand out. Last, but not least, it protects the original paintwork of the vehicle from any damage: chemical, mechanical, UV, etc.

What if I want to switch from a carbon fiber look to something else?
Carbon fiber vinyl can be easily removed and replaced with another film. We strongly recommend doing it in a professional shop as the removal of the tint requires special skills and equipment. If you have decided that you want something new, you can easily go from carbon fiber to matte black, chrome, or even camouflage design! You can contact Tinting Chicago 24/7 customer support and request some fresh ideas.

No, it’s not. The wrap is a high-quality textured film added over the original paintwork, it just simulates the carbon fiber. Changing the entire hood to true carbon fiber would be a much more difficult and expensive process than wrapping.
