Considering CF stripes?

Here is some help for you.....I have no intention of adding stripes so you are on your own after this

Ordered samples of every CF Vinyl I thought might to be close to the B92 insert as I wanted a close match to hide the Gold BowTie

Here are the 5 choices followed by close ups of the two best in Sun and then under Fluorescent lighting.
If I was trying to put them next to each other then the Gloss Black is probably the closest.
I would however get both and compare for yourself

If you only plan on doing the roof and trunk then either will work and it's a matter of taste.

Finally got my ZL1 and got the 3M fake carbon fiber stripe done. It is a pretty good match to the hood insert. I'm really happy with the results.

Where Did You Get The Black Bowties? They Do Not Look Like An Overlay - Did You Change Them Out?
