    So after searching the web and this site all night tonight at work I am getting sick of trying to find and answer. My CF hood looks like shit. My buddy said its just the clear coat peeling. How do I fix this??? Just sand it down real fine and put another layer of clear coat on?? Or are there other steps I need to do??

    Any input is appreciated.
