Carbon Fiber?

i was curious what a lot of you thought about carbon fiber accents on the new camaro?

i think this is like a german version of Jynx's Z28 concept:


heres a better pic of the hood which is mainly what i'd like people opinions on:


I EVEN stumbled on some carbon fiber cloth that reminded me of Pink:

I can't understand why anyone would want their car too look like Frankenstein. You know, various different colored pieces put together to form one car. That's what the carbon fiber hood looks like to me.

For the hood... why? its already aluminum.. the weight loss would be negligible for such a large amount of money..

As for other pieces.. the whole carbon fiber look has gotten dated.. especially when you see them on 4 cylinder (no turbo) Honda civics and the such..

I was thinking the same thing. If you took the Cabon Fiber hood and painted it to match but left the hood buldge exposed or maybe leave the Rally Stripes exposed... same for a trunk and spolier.... I would at least like a nice CF fromt lip spolier.... I'm trying to get to SEMA to see whats coming....

Only carbon fiber I plan for mine is a kit for the interior accent pieces.

You're going with red exterior/black stripes, right? Those cf pieces would def. make for good looking combo on that ride.

I was thinking black w/ Carbon Fiber stripes instead of flat black ones a'la Challenger, but I'm not sure how it'd look.

I was going to see if SLP or someone was going to come out with a center mounted quad exhaust like I used to have on my '00 SS. It looked awesome on my old car and I'm thinking it should look pretty cool on the new ones too. So I'll hold out for that since it should come with some body trim pieces for both sides of the rear.

haha, i thought you would. it should match your color scheme perfectly.

i'm just hoping the Cyber Gray Metallic is dark enough that CF blends w/ it nicely.

as soon as I can get my hands on an extra hood i think i'm make one and see how it works out

not a lot yet, but i found this to be a good opportunity to get more experience (problemly start w/ small pieces, like trim)

i've seen vinyls, and no offense, but they lack the depth and don't look nearly as good (plus i'm not a big fan of mimicking, like "chrome spray paint")
