Hey guys
So while my engine is getting put in.... I was thinking of maybe redoing the look of my ride. Does anyone have a PB with some carbon fiber on their ride... I wanna see how it looks (especially hoods and trunks). Obviously pictures will be best! Thanks

Yea I know man I am a forum addict, cant help it... but if I were you I would get some rims first, not the basic black, go different like gunmetal or a dark gold/ bronze look... then get CF front lip and side skirts... then go from there

Just dont get a hood/wing/doors and all the extra shit, then it becomes scary to drive because all you care about is a rock from the salty Pburgh roads flying up and scratching the hell out of your CF.

I personally care for speed over looks.. and I know you do to lol... rims/lip/side skirt is enough

carbon fiber hood with 3m cover :)

One of the local guys has (or had) a CF trunk on PB. I think it looks great. It's more subtle than on other colors.
its not so "ooo look at me i gots carbon fiber. it suits the car while setting it apart at the same time.

It's not painted. One of the main reasons I got a black car was because unpainted carbon fiber looks best on black. It doesn't stand out and break the natural lines of the car. It also doesn't create a two toned effect. If you don't have a black car then you should paint your carbon fiber hoods and trunks.

thank you...

carbon fiber looks so tacky on colored cars.

IMO.
