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.

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...

The details keep on getting better and better.......... I love the grill, the CF hood (I always assumed it would look like the ZR1's)....
OldSchool, I know you'll hop on this one!! Imagine the Red with black top!!

I'm not a fan of cf, but If I do a stripe delete I won't mind. It'll be a fringe benefit of saving some dollars.

I love the new Ashen Gray on that 'vert, and if I can afford this car, that's the color I would choose. However, I would have preferred a better name, like Gun Metal Gray. As a firefighter/paramedic, I've seen some of my patients that are "ashen gray", and that's not a good thing. It just leaves an unpleasant after taste after saying those words.

It also sounds a little blah to me. Our other colors have some cool names like inferno, imperial, crystal, etc. But I digress. If GM called it sissy gray or wimpy gray, I'd still choose that color and love it. My .02
