How would this look?
I own a white Celica and I want to get a new Hood although, the Hood I want is Carbon Fiber. Do you think it would look alright if I maybe put some other stuff on the exterior (wing center piece, Mirrors, etc.) and put a white Hood scoop and Hood spoilers back on. Or should I just save up and buy one that I can paint to match the car? Thanks for the advice.
BTW I finally hit 100, it took long enough.

It is hard for me to picture it. But i don't think it would look bad. It would be very unique and different from the other celicas. I say go for it. thumbsup

Does it cost any more to paint a carbon fiber Hood then a regular Hood?

Oh God PLEASE don't do it!! If you want to go Carbon Fiber then STAY Carbon Fiber. Get your Hood, hoodscoop and wing insert and Mirrors. It'll look a lot cleaner and mesh really well w/ your white car. If you don't have it, tint your windows dark too to add to the effect.

I had a Vis c/f Hood on mine for a week "No sir I did'nt like it" it all depends on the color of things like your whl's etc. My whl's are wht and it just did'nt match but if you got stock or a dark whl (gunmetal) it may look great. You don't paint carbon fiber and I wouldn't put on Hood spoilers the scoop would be ok.

Thanks for the opinions. I'm trying to make my car look different from the others but not "Ricey". I would like to see if I could get my car into some car shows and hope for the best from there. I will be putting it in two car shows at the end of this month and in June (for car stereo though). And since I have no more bills I have some play money now, so it is time for mods. And yes this is a mod question, but I thought I would might get flamed for the idea.

if you get a white scoop, go with a raised scoop. I think that Hood spoilers look good on show cars, it gives it a unique/aggressive look. But you gotta do what you like.

if you go with a Carbon Fiber Hood, make everything on the Hood match. If you have white Hood, same thing. Plus, if you want Carbon Fiber, the rest of the car has to have some black or Carbon Fiber in it to blend with the Carbon Fiber Hood. I am getting the veilside Carbon Fiber wing and I am making sure that I have enough black to go along with it because carbon fiber is really different looking.
