Carbon fiber hoods look okay on most cars; they only look genuinely good on cars that are black, gray, platinum, etc. If you get one, get one that has a carbon fiber frame and overlay, not just carbon fiber over fiberglass (most CF hoods are like this). Pure CF hoods are waaaay costlier, but are stiffer, sturdier, and lighter too.

:nerd: :nerd:


I wish my girls ass was ready to show...lol
it will ! it will u just have patience i know sometimes it seems like this junk is never going to be finished or even improve but it will and we got so much time to think about our new suits we are putting on when we put them on we wont go crazy we will be like laid back casual

just chillin looking good
:beard:

oh and mp take a look at your trunk when you do all this think about simplyfying the trunk lid maybe shaving some lights look at the g trunk and the sentra trunk lid alot more going on on the sentra

come on man just because you ccan fit projectors you gotta get some tight projectors headlights


ohh and back to carbon fiber here are my opinions on it on white cars it looks cool if trying to be sportier looking and same goes for red and the others except for silver and def black it goes with those two to me. but like all know Application is the key so someone might put it on one of those unsuggested colors and it will look classy still and not sporty --you never know
on the shopping list we must def add a cf hood for my g but i will paint it pearl white

well when you buy the hood, make sure you look on the bottom of the hood. And look at the sides. You can see the layers. The fiber glass hoods is just a carbon fiber sticker or paint...too give you that look.

Pay the extra money for the real CF. It's definately worth it. If you just want it for looks....some of those custom body shops can do the paint for you...and it's cheaper then buying the actual CF hood.

Allright no problem. Ok were walking in between cars looking at them like everyone else, then were walking in an empty space to get to the other side of this one car. then some chick in a hooked up jetta yells get the fuck out of my way, i will hit you, so she pulled in realy fast and alsot hit my girlfriend and my friend (the one who did the bumpers) wife. So they thought one of us knew her....but whatver we start waling away talking about how crazy that bitch was and she comes up talking shit. Like bitch move out the way when i tell you blah blah blah (some skanky trailer trash bitch--the good looking ones) then my friends wife says calmly "listen miss princess who do you think you are driving like that" so then the girl goes when i say move move so it went back and forth her boyfriend came started talking shit i stood my ground and so did my friend and they backed off, her boyfriend pulled away and that girl like a little BITCH. They were yelling we were just calm trying not to fight but i happens, then they realized they were wrong and walked away talking shit. End of story....sorry for this guys im bored

CF Hood Prices (here in SD anyways)

I called around places here in San Diego to find a carbon fiber hood for my friend's Civic. All the places I called make completely custom carbon fiber hoods (usually direct copies of the OEM hoods) so prices for G20s and Civics and Vipers, etc etc etc. would generally be the same (I asked to make sure). Generally:

Carbon Fiber over Fiberglass frame: $325 ~ $375, takes about two weeks

Carbon Fiber over Carbon Fiber frame: $575 ~ $720

Yeah, big difference, I know.

Those are really not bad prices. And if you live around San Diego, you can save on really expensive freight shipping and pick them up for even cheaper!

Anyway, here is another pic of a G20 w/ carbon fiber hood. This car is from Florida, bastard Domiken ;) got the rear from this car before me!! -YOU Stole my Potential Girl's ASS!-



*NOTE* copy the link and paste it into a new browser if the picture doesn't show up.

Thanks
