Could pick up a sheet of vinyl for less than £20 probably. Recommend a heat gun. Just cut and overlap the corners underneath the bonnet and wrap underneath about 20mm so its nice and secure. Here's my effort:

Its more or less flat... dont use heat especially for carbon... you can easliy distort the pattern. Work from the middle out.

Once you have "finished" then go over with a heat gun on light heat and use a cloth to wipe over. Dont use those plastic things... if u heat a spot too much again you can distort the pattern, you'll also see it in the sun :)

Forgot to mention that part! Only heat for slight adjustments! But yeah it's an easy bonnet to wrap, only the two grooves.

Try and do it in a warm garage as it'll fly on due to the vinyl being softer if it's cold it's a battle to put on. Also don't buy cheap vinyl it's crap get something decent like hexis it's worth the few quid extra as if you decide to remove it or leave very very little adhesive.

Got a quote from Boss Dog in Dorking last week, was £150 but then they dropped it to £100

I cant do it at the moment but they seem to have a good rep
