Blackout hood decal vs. Plastidipped hood
 
Which is better in yalls opinion. What are the positives and negatives of each. Im talking blacking out the raised portion of the hood.

decal can be removed easily.

My opinion is that if you OEM paint is still in good shape, then leave it alone.

agreed

if you must change the hood, then add a louver

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

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.

Yes the darker areas in yours. Ive plastidipped alot of items on diffrent vehicles. Rims, emblems, grills, small things are fine to plastidip but bigger things look uneven to me. But to each there own. If you like it rock it.
