Carbon Fiber Bowtie??

What do you all think about this? There is a company dragonplate.com that sells self adhesive carbon fiber sheets. What I was thinking is cut out the bowtie shape in carbon fiber for the front and back emblems. If may only look right on certain colors (black, yellow, inferno)??

might be cool but would have to see it on it. I know the challenger has a carbon fiber stripe package on the hood that looks good.

I think it would be sweet, the one thing to consider is how flexable would the carbon fiber be. Due to the curves on the bowtie you would have to get it molded to fit, or be able to stretch it to fit.

dipped in carbon fiber? i just woke up but i have NO idea how that would work...unless its a faux carbon fiber design they are dipping (cool technique, but not for carbon fiber - has no depth)

If it looks like wet carbon fiber, I'd do it. The Dry carbon stuff looks nothing like the wet stuff used in all applications.
