That is why you paint the carbon to match the car.

The real carbon stays unpainted. I paid good money to be able to show off that weave.

Hey now, someone has to work on the sedans.



I'll admit to wanting to keep the pace up and see what can be done with these cars. With the Grand Prix approaching what I can call 'done' in terms of modifications, I'm focusing on the new sedan and hoping to inspire others.

I'd say if you do the roof you should do the hood too. The roof alone just doesn't look right to me

It would be sick if you wrapped the roof and also the center of the hood up to where lines on the hood are.

The hood will stay yellow regardless. No wrapping will be done there. Sorry guys.
