I did stripes on the magnum as a way to keep stone chips from the paint in a decorative way without a homosexual looking car bra. I just carried the stripes up onto the roof about 3 months ago to protect the roof from the crap that falls off of my bikes when they are on the roof rack. Its on the rims too. I have only had to redo the rim right below the gas filler because I overflowed trying to go to the nearest dollar. The hood has been on just over a year. the only fading I have is where I didn't get the spray perfect on the hood and there are pores in the rubber. It has a haze to it. I plan to take off that half of the hood to redo it.
