Some people may not want to or aren't ready to cut and drill into their hood. So doing something that gives it a different look without it having a permanent effect is where a decal or plasti dip would come in handy.

TJspeed A decal may leave residue if you remove it and plasti dip may not peel off as easy if it wasn't sprayed correctly.
