    Going to be applying a ceramic coating when my care comes in. I optioned the vinyl hood stripes. Do you put the ceramic coating on the stripes?

    I always wax over mine but they are gloss. It makes them look great. If you have stripes with a matte finish, there’s special wax just for those stripes.
