Default Carbon Fiber weaved hood PICS

well its photoshoped but does anyone think it might look nice in real life? Sorry I didnt do a good job photoshoping, the weave pattern scale will be much smaller in real life.

Im getting a WC Hood so im wondering it It should look like this or simply Velocity Red.

I could have saved you the trouble photoshopping.

I love Jason's hood

I think the hood "style" on the Katech car looks awesome!! However, an unpainted carbon fiber hood on red car is about as Rice as Rice can be.

What about unpainted carbon on the red ZR1? Don't get you started on that? I plan to get the ZR1 roof to match when it is available.

Exposed carbon is not rice. Form follows function. Pick up a copy of Modified Luxury and Exotics magazine sometime. Exposed carbon is everywhere.

My WC hood is currently being painted. I'll post pics as soon as it's done. It'll be partly carbon fiber expose weave, black & velocity yellow. Very excited! By then my long awaited upgraded external oil cooler & dewitt radiator will be ready as well.

not saying it looks rice but it has to be done in a way so as not to screw with the lines of the car. the dark hood alone does that

I think the ZR1 has plenty of ugly ques also.

i appreciate the weight savings/performance aspect, but i don't care for it unpainted. even on my black z i wouldn't have it. and no, i don't care for it on the zr-1 either. although on the cyber grey it's acceptable as it seems to blend pretty well.

the difference btween the pics of those exotics is that they are tastefully done and do not clash with the colors of the cars in the way red z does.

the red z makes the outline of the hood painfully obvious and screws up the lines of the car. it just looks like the hood needs to be painted.

whatever floats you boat but comparing those exotic cars and how they are done to the red z is apples to oranges

Just out of curiousity, do you think this exposed carbon on red screws up the lines of the car?

not very much because its a different panel of the car and doesnt visually cut up the paint like the hood does.

I can understand where you are coming from. I like it though and so do about 50% of the people that see it in person. I get better response from people that actually see the car. Internet pictures do it no justice.

I like the exposed carbon on the ZR1 because it does not look out of place.

Everyone has different taste in what looks good on their car. If they want to put exposed carbon on their car and they like it, then more power to them

Looks quite nice to me. I like the contrast.

Keep in mind that looks are so subjective that it is impossible (or at least unfair) to tell someone that one thing is better than another (so long as it is done with some taste).

The funny thing is I am not too crazy about the interiors in CF. I think most of the cars put too much CF in the interior although if it is functional (less weight) then I have no quibble with it.

To each his own.

I love exposed carbon Fiber, if I had the money, my whole Z would be that way


Jason, your car looks fine, add some more carbon, and it will be fantastic.
