Yeppers. They put a clearcoat over it so it can be treated like paint. Unless you got some super crappy CF part.

You wouldn't need to spray any additional clearcoat on a carbon fiber part unless it was shipped to you in craptastic condition. If it's glossy you're pretty safe to assume it's been clearcoated.

yup, mine is painted to match and it is absolutely perfect

my bodyman said that there were tiny holes in the gelcoat and he had to go and individually fill them in or it would look like **** when he painted it.

can you see the CF through it? at one of our ohio meets over the summer, we happened to come across another black 7thgen that wasnt in the meet and he had a CF hood painted black, but they did a shitty job painting it because you could see the CF through the paint.
