Sup everyone. I'm getting a new paintjob soon (still keeping it black but just my 95 granada black isnt what it used to be, not to mention all the dents that have accumulated over the years). I have a CF hood and was thinking about painting that too. But I would paint it along the body lines. Anyone have any photos of this? I found this one but it isnt exactly what I'm talking about. The hood for jdm fronts has more of a "V" style to the lines as well so I think it might look good.

I've seen a red CF hood but it looked kinda lame.

I think the best color for CF is CF :)
i think a red cf hood would look hot but ive never seen one on a teg, only a civic....

nah, I didnt mean colored carbon fiber, I meant painting OVER the CF but just on the body lines (like the picture above but up to the creases.

You're car is black so wouldnt really work, but I've seen CF hoods painted with a thin coat of color so that it matches the car, but the CF shows through. Looked pretty good.

Look at Outkast24's Cardomain site. His wife's civic has the body lines painted. Also, PM me if you wish to have me photoshop you a pic. Just supply a car of the color you're painting =)

My friends uncle has it done on his Lexus IS300's carbon fiber hood and it looks very nice. The only color car i recommend doing it on is black or charcoal.

I think carbon fiber would look bad ass up against a new black paint job if you paint the body lines or not. Whatever you choose make sure to post some pics.

I really really think it is a waste of time, especially on an already black car. The CF is already black!

That's just my opinion, but if you want to do it, do it and post pics!

IMO, paint it. I like my CF functional and hidden (although for true functionality and really light CF hood, I guess the hood pins would give it away
).
