Exposed CF hood insert?

So far...the Ashen Gray Convertible ZL1 has seemed to be the most current ZL1 (in terms of aesthetics) so far.....

With that said...take a close look at this picture below (a crop of the original pics from GM)...

Am I the only one noticing the CF weave around the edges of the insert? Could it be exposed using the ZR1's resin for production??

I thought I saw something that looked off… Good observation! That is very interesting. What does that mean – an unfinished CF hood option? Hmmmm… Well, that changes things.

Look at this picture. Looks like the Stripe would be vinyl over the CF... So a stripe delete leaves exposed CF weave? Note you can see the CF on the edges and inside the vents but not on the surface...

I think that'd be one of the coolest things! I would consider skipping the stripe package for an exposed CF extractor

Yes… what I was once sure of is again thrown into question.

It sure would be good to get some high resolution and detailed photos when we order since a production version won’t be released until after that date.

I am going with stripe delete on my car. It will be interesting to see if the CF is exposed on all stripe delete cars. I would prefer to see the carbon fiber much more than a vinyl stripe.

I want to see the vents now!!!

This one has no vinyl over it as can be seen in the convertible sticky.

It does look that way, it would be nice if there is a CF stripe package to really copliment the hood insert.

I thought the same thing (about only seeing the weave on the edges/vents), so I went back and took another look at the other set of pictures, and it kinda does look in this one like the whole thing is CF! Very very cool....

I too would definitely go with the stripe delete to get exposed CF!!

Awww man that is just awesome....thanks Dmerk, the CF is badass. I think I'm going to have an aneurysm when I see the CLJ, CF, and black 10 spoke wheel combo..... I'm going ino sensory overload...

Darn I was just trying to post those pics Dmerk, but you beat me to it. Pretty cool though if that is an option.
