Ok, I just bought one (carbon fiber hood), and am wondering how you take care of it? Do you wax these things or just wash them?

i clay barred mine the other day, and i swear to god it feels smoother, and i wax it every time i wax my car. It seems to be fine. and i guess its some protection.

I heard your not supposed to wax it for about a month (just like if you got a new paint job) ... I guess so the clear coat cures. I should get mine in the mail monday as well... any other tips??

there is no clear-coat on these hoods, just a gel coating. i clay bar mine twice a month and apply several coats of wax in between.

Did you guys get your hood from the current or most recent groupbuy that iMoto hosted?

Hmm, is it worth it to put a coat or 2 of clear coat on the hood. I've been comtemplating about it. It doesn't have a sheen to it like clear coat paint
