Do what you want man, already looks great to me! I think the Carbon fiber would look very good though with the red...

thanks, ive been on this site for a while but never posted up my pics before. so these are my first. i will post more later. i know most ppl hate decals and think they are way too ricer, but i honestly like them. as long as u actually have the part, i think its ok. its kind of an old style but hey, i like it. on the sides of my car on the bottom i got doch vtec, borla, dc sports, aem, megan racing, and hopefuly soon vis. my goal is to fill up a line all the way from end to end with every aftermarket product i put on. but i am against ppl who put those decals to lie to ppl and those who get a radiator cap from mugen and put a sticker on. thats kinda gay imo. i know to most its kinda cheesy and rice but i think it will look great once the whole line is done. :)

Re: should i?

I think the invader style bonnets are horrid looking. If I was spending that much money on a carbon bonnet I would get the OEM style for sure.

Re: should i?

I actually kinda like the invader style. Im not sure if I would take it over oem tho. But I do think it looks good. Just check out akaprepreludesh's ride. He has an invader style cf hood and it looks great on his car

Re: should i?

i personally its not only that i like invader, i need it too because the vent is right next to the headers and since i have aftermarket headers i dont have a heat shield and it gets really hot under there. heat wraps are bad for headers so that is definitely not an option. i looked at other vented hoods but they look rly crappy. so im jst gonna go with this one if i end up gettn a CF hood. my only concern is will carbon fiber look good and match my car since my lude has that slight custom color.

Re: should i?

That is fugly, lol. Hood risers? That will give you better air flow. It's all personal opinion, but It's way too "BAM" for me.

Re: should i?

i looked at hood risers but they jst make yr car look like the hood wasnt proffesionally installed. imo. especially if the hood is stock. and hood risers lift the hood more to the rear. our ludes are pretty old, n i have had two hoses get so hot and burst because of the extreme heat the headers are putting off. n the vent there will be perfect to relieve the heat. but again its not the style that is my main concern, its if CF will match and look good on my lude. i already had over 80 views but about 4 replies. im hoping to get more soon. i only have a few days to make a decision.

Re: should i?

Well I still say it's ugly. There must be a better way to reduce the heat. Do what you want man, it shouldn't matter what others think.

Re: should i?

I personally think a CF hood is just too random. It's like "BAM carbon fiber" then gone, lol. The style is too eh for me. If it would look good on any car it would be a red one though. It breaks up the beautiful lines of a Prelude IMO though.

Re: should i?

thanks for the opinion bro, but i got sum plans that im actually planning to do not jst say. here is my exterior build plan: the invader cf hood, lowered, greddy front lip with the lettering painted white, nice black rims, CF rear spoiler (not a huge one, sumthn subtle and clean, i hate the rice look so if u have seen a clean one send me a link) and cf rear view mirrors not the cf look, but actual cf lol) and to top it off lambo door kit is all i want for exterior. oh and the decals in white of course down on the bottom sides. :) to make my lude, mine.

Re: should i?

That might look good. Either way, you have a clean ass lude. I also noticed that your hood doesn't line up very flush (notice the gaps between the head lights are different). I would look into straightening that while you're changing hoods. Just a thought, no offense.

Re: should i?

yea it rly kills the look of my car. its a rly expensive fix though. what sux is im gonna get hood pins, the ones with the key lock cuz i live with my wife in apartments n the area is rly bad. my lude got broken into, her civic got stolen, (we found it though) n a hood is rly easy to steal. jst a couple of bolts n its gone. so im gonna have to drill holes through my hood and the pins are gonna be slightly off from eachother. one a bit higher than the other. not super noticable but up close u it will be noticable.

Re: should i?
