Black or CF?

Look at my avatar. My hood is currently black along with my grille. In the spring I would like to change it to a carbon fiber hood with the same TM paint on the sides as I have now. The problem is going to be the grille. The paint job flows well right now because the grille and hood are both black. I would like some opinions on what I should do? Stay black or go cf?

"Once you go black you never go back" This may apply here too

Re: Black or CF?

Yeah I have had the car the way it is for a year now its time for a change. I know they do make the RS grille in a CF but I am thinkin' the jdm mesh grille. Next question should I paint the carbon hood like mine is now or leave it plain?

Re: Black or CF?

Leave it plain.
Then when the clear starts to fade, paint the sides and reclear the center. This way you can change the car twice.

Re: Black or CF?

Leave the hood plain.

Then if you do not like it you can paint it.

Re: Black or CF?

Leave it that way, I have my paint that way with the CF and the hood cracked along the top, its ok from a distance but if you get up close you can see it. It was cool have the CF but I'd rather just have a painted hood.
the first day I got it back after new paint

1 year ago, about 4 months after painted (has cracks but not noticable)

Re: Black or CF?

ya I had to replace my hood, someone jumped on my original OEM blue one. Put a used OEM black on there, never getting it painted, car looks gangster.
