    i was just wondering your opinions on the carbon fiber hoods, i think they are too ricey. I was looking at hoods and found a heat extractor carbon fiber hood on ebay for like 350, not really into it though. Where are some other places to buy hoods besides mrbodykit, jegs, ebay, and cervinis? Im either looking for the heat extractor, or the cobra r rise hood with the 2 scoops at the top.

    if its on a black car....its okay, but fast and the furious kinda ruined it. The whole point in carbon fiber is less weight. Just paint the outside, and if your worried no one will believe you keep the underside carbon fiber so when you go to car shows, people will see.

    theonly way i would buy anything carbon fiber was if i planned on making my car as light as possible for the track...that means it would have no interior besides one light as fuck seat and a cage. and i would paint the carbon fiber too.
