carbon fiber or no carbon fiber...that is the question...

yes i ripped off Shakespeare's line right there...

basically i already HAVE a seibon cf hood with cf flush mounts and was deciding to get the cf trunk and mugen rep spoiler in cf as well but then i thought... would they look good after i get my new rims. I'm getting the works VS-XX (JDM YO!) in gold and was thinking...black...red...gold...???? color clash?
my lude is san marino red 5th gen. should i keep the cf hood or ditch the whole cf look...? opinions?

I would go for the trunk but skip the spoiler. CF trunks are sick but they look kinda odd with a spoiler. I think the CF would look sick on the red paint and the gold wheels.

Dont think it will clash. Look up lilbill97. His lude is red, has gold wheels and a cf hood and trunk and I think it looks great.

I agree you should paint it all. Btw your link to your member's ride thread in your sig isnt working, for me at least

Re: carbon fiber or no carbon fiber...that is the question...

I also have a san marino red 5th gen so I've thought for days about many combinations including your current selection. Here is what I've come up with: Carbon fiber comes with a gel coating that peels relatively quickly so at least a clear coat should be applied to prolong the sexyness of it. I really like where the sides of the hood are painted to match and the middle is left cf, like oneredlude: :::OneRedLude::: 2001 Milano Red Base so I'd go with that look and I would get the carbon fiber trunk and flush cf mugen rep spoiler because it's pretty sexy too.
