I did the same to mine a few years ago after trying it in photoshop. Enhances the lines nicely. Not OTT, all over the car and only works with some colours.

I thought about removing it...

But it get's pretty HOT under the V6 bonnet, so I decided to leave it there...

But I certainly have to Polish up around it... :dance:

It's actually sound deadIng, and vibration damping nothing to do with heat retention....why would you want to keep heat in when hot air causes all kinds of problems under the hood
