Firstly apologies if I should be adding this somewhere else, new here, first post. Read a lot about bonnet wraps and just wanted to know some opinions, I have a 59 2.2 type s gt, car is mint except the bonnet which has a fair few stone chips which have been covered (but not very well), it detracts from the car. I am unsure how a matt fibre wrap would look against the shiny black paint, would a shinier option be better or even a contrasting colour. I drive a lot of motorway miles so the chipping will only get worse. My own thoughts are a shiny carbon fibre weave as this should sort of "blend" with the car.
Finally anyone know any decent companies that would fit around Glasgow area. Any photos much appreciated of black on black.

Thanks, that was my first thought, like the look of the wraps though, never seen black on black hence my hesitation

Ive seen black carbon vinyl on black, it looks ok! you still have a bit of a shine to it. But If some of your chips are bad you might see them through the vinyl...

I had my bonnet resprayed along with the front wings due to chips. Its held up so much better ever since. The bodyshop respray would be A LOT thicker than the honda paint.

I had my roof wrapped due to similar damage, motorway stone chips and some (expletive) decided to run a key down it!

You could go the Gloss Vinyl route but it depends on how close a match they can get to your paint.

However any imperfections will show straight through the gloss vinyl same as your paint now, any chips etc as it should be wrapped that tight over it, even when using quite thick stuff.

With a CF wrap the imperfections will get lost in the weave of the CF I had a massive ding in mine where they jabbed the key in and you cant even tell its there!

You can always consider other colours of CF but if you are any good on photoshop I am happy to get some pictures of the CF used on my roof so you can layer it onto your bonnet to get an idea of how it would look.
