any color besides black for a carbon fiber hood is pointless IMO. who would not want a black carbon fiber hood?

You can see the fibers with the red and blue hoods guys! If you have a red civic, then a red carbon fiber hood is k3wl I think. Same goes for blue. The colors kinda have to match though. The car car be a lighter shade, but it would look stupid if the hood was a lighter shade IMO.

Black CF Hoods look good on (IMO) Black cars, dark green cars, dark blue cars, and white cars (and that's a maybe).

However, I believe that there are CF hoods made in Yellow/Black, Blue/Black, and Red/Black. The yellow obviously helps with yellow cars, the red with red cars and the blue with blue cars.

The point is to shed some weight since carbon fiber hoods are at least halve the weight of stock hoods.
