    If you wrap the hood and the trunk, you should wrap the roof as well

    Goo Gone is oil based and not good for surface prep, not sure what you're doing with it just putting it out there. Plain rubbing alcohol would work just fine for surface prep prior to wrapping.

    Judging from the items removed, he's using it to remove the left over adhesive from the double sided tape.

    Yes. I am using it to get rid of the glue. It has caused no noticeable damage to the paint.
    I am not spraying any paint. Except the spoiler will be painted black eventually. I have to keep it because I am trying autoX and want to be in F-stock. I will need to put the faux gas cap back on too but I will use magnets for that.
    I will be wrapping hood and trunk. I know that I have to clean w/ alcohol based cleaner before that. I have a solution especially for wrap to clean with.
    I haven't decided if I should try the wrap myself or pay someone.

    My 06 didn't come with a spoiler. I like that look. I did the Raxiom tail lights as well.

    I think raxiom lights are hella ugly but they look a lot better than those chrome trimmed stocks.

    I like the “gas cap” delete. I’d like to do that myself I think it cleans it up a lot.
