civicdude will become famous soon enough
I dont know if the clay bar will remove the residue...You should try it first....I wouldnt use any solvent or any other storng chemicals on the hood because you could risk wrecking the may cause scratches. To wax and keep your carbon fiber hood up...I recommend using the clay bar to clean the surface. Do not use any compunds, polishes or cleaner waxes on the surface because you can scratch the surface. I would use Carnuba waxes that will leave a good protective coating on the surface....I recommend using Meguires Gold, Mothers Yellow wax, Gliptone Creme, and Kit wax.
