That looks just like my car except I peeled off the hood decal (sticker).

It was stuck on there really well. I waited for a warm day and just peeled it off. I didn't use my heat gun. It took a little muscle, but it wasn't too bad. I was a little worried that I would have to take the squirters off, but the plastic decal just stretched around it and came right off.

But the way, there is no saving it as it stretches out of shape (not that I wanted to save it).

I wouldn't mind the black on the hood so much if it was painted & shiny like the roof was. I just didn't like the matte finish "tape" that the decal is made from. I didn't want any stripes on my Challengers either.

I also use 303 protectant on my dash for a matte, non-glossy finish.
Great tip about using the 303, it's good stuff, thanks.

I haven't noticed any on-road glare from the hood. I really like the look of mine without the hood sticker.

^ What color is your vehicle? I ordered a white TH with the decal hoping it would help with any glare. I'm in AZ, so it's mostly sunny & my eyes are sensitive to bright light. Will have to wait until I actually get it to see whether it is effective or not.....

At least with the sunny conditions and a light colored car you'll stay cool while you're out, even when coming back to your parked vehicle that's been left out in the sun

I have an orange Latitude and have ZERO problems with glare...then again, I'm only like 5'9". I don't see much of the hood at all while driving...certainly not enough to be distracting or to notice any glare.

I'm in NY...but it was in the 90s for a few days last week and pretty **** sunny. Was wearing non-polarized sunglasses and I don't recall ever thinking that there was a glare or my attention being drawn to the hood because of it.
