ok I need a change which i think may involve painting my carbon fiber hood, What do you guys think? the hood is in real good shape so I am not trying to cover anything up. maybe some can photoshop the hood the same color as the car I'd really appreciate it
comments feel free

Re: to paint or not to paint (vwdohc993)

why don't you trade me your carbon fiber hood for my stock hood, then you can paint it any color you like

don't know for sure what it would look like painted, but i kinda like the way it is now. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: to paint or not to paint (hitman88)

nice try
I wantto do carbn fenders also but there is a lack of interrest in them so it'll be awhile(j's house of Euro picnic tables
) I was gonna wait until i had them before I had anything painted, maybe I will bo a Yellow sticker across the hood with a 16v on it or something, just do like to leave anything alone
I need my head examined

Yeah,
dump the hood and the rims, they're worthless. I'd be more than happy to haul them away for you.
Heck the whole car looks a wreck; I'll be generous and take it off your hands for towing costs!!!

JMO, but don't change a thing!!! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: to paint or not to paint (lawn-gnome)

it might not be as good as i think..... but first thought i had when i saw the pic was to paint the roof middle (between the two black strips) and the part between windsheild/hood a gloss black too. Kinda like the whole top of the car is black.

I think its a grand idea. Im having CF hood and fenders & flares made for my MK-I and im planning on painting them. I want the lightness but I want the car to look right too. Besides, ive seen too many hack hoods get cloudy. (Sun does some of that.) Nothing wrong with painting it. Do what YOU like man.
Picturing your car all yellow should be easy? I trthink it will look nice actually.

Re: to paint or not to paint (lawn-gnome)

the kit is part seidl and part reiger, with alot of time fitting it so it blended together, the kit was about 6 for the frn. bumpercover, 6 for the rear, both seidl, and 4 for the side skirts,(reiger) and alot of of money and time customizing,
I still welcom suggestions, maybe someone will come up with somethin I haven't thought of, I just want a car that doesn't look like anyone elses,, No offense to anyone else That's not what i meant, but you understand

Re: to paint or not to paint (mr. marlon)

i used to have a mono wiper on my old 82, it broke one day during a rain storm, and it wasn't pretty, needless to say if it doesn't already have it it is not getting it, Audi door handles are pretty cool, but i am trying to source a set of porsche 993 handles,, Not doing a moonroof Glass is heavier than steel, and tends to leak
Thanks for the suggestions though SK
