Best colors to go with CF?

Need help deciding what color to paint my 4th Gen. I will be getting a cf hood, if I can't find a JUN hood for a nice price.

So, what colors do you think go well with having carbon fiber parts? i.e. cf hood, trunk.

I like white. For some reason, cf+shiny white on a prelude just looks amazing.

Re: Best colors to go with CF?

Best colors are light colors usually (in my opinion ofcourse), whites silvers, any light shade. non dark blues and greens. I think black is the worst color. I have a white with cf hood and trunk and I think it looks pretty slick.

Re: Best colors to go with CF?

3rd gen yellow (think canary) with a dull finish would look cool and the gang with black hood n trunk, black wheels, pin striped body line and red brake calipers.
The interior would have to be black or charcoal.
Can't say I've ever seen a yellow 4th.

Personally I like the burgendy on that 5th in my previous post. I envisioned cf stuff when I first saw it with those tinted windows and gun metal wheels.

Re: Best colors to go with CF?

Quicksilver metallic from GM. It has a pearlescent fade to it, whitish when light hits it, silver for shaded areas. You could also get away with yellows like the AP1/AP2

Re: Best colors to go with CF?

This is twisty55's prelude, he's on this forum and also Preludepower. Imo this is one of my favorite colors to go along with cf, I believe it's called Midnight Purple Pearl?

Re: Best colors to go with CF?

I had 2 choices in my mind:
1) paint them to match my car
2) leave them alone

...choice 2 was more cheaper so that was my choice

my winter rims are graphite grey so they work pretty ok with cf parts (if you want that theres more that kind of style colour)

if I ever get my car re painted, I probably paint cf parts to match the body

^Carbon fiber goes great with white. BUT white is impossible to keep clean! Take it from a guy who's had 2 white Ludes!
