Carbon Fiber hood

Despite it's main purpose.. (to free up weight) I'm not really a big fan of the many cars that have an aftermarket hood a different color then the rest of the body.

Has anyone seen a carbon fiber hood on a black car, Is there much of a contrast between the colors? I'm thinking about buying one but I don't want that color contrast that sticks out like a sore thumb.

Any input?

Lates,
Paulie

I think the carbon-on-black look is tight, Im also a big fan of it being two different colors, if you're buying it and then painting it, nobody will know the difference, thats pointless, youd have to be rich to do that, because then you're stricly buying it to loose like 20lbs for $450 ouch!

Exactly, if you get carbon fiber please don't paint it. If anything get colored stiching for the fiber weave.
