It depends on what color your car is, but I wouldnt paint it.

if i get a c/f Hood or hatch, or any other pieces for weight savings... i'm painting them... no one else need to know what weight reduction i've done. Personally, i don't like the contrast between paint and c/f... if it were all c/f, great, otherwise i'm a paint guy.

While you might find it hard to believe, a lot of the "showy" cabon fiber pieces available now really aren't much lighter than stock. They are built to handle the rigors of being on a daily driven car (covered in clear coat, lots of layers of Carbon Fiber, some times steel that is wrapped in Carbon Fiber). They are far from the dry carbon body panels that are on the C-WEST S2000 and the HKS time attack Evo.

Keep in mind there are always exceptions. smile

what's the price? how much weight will you save? how's the fitment?

lets not jump the gun...it might weigh the same as the stock piece and/or it might have fitment issues, just like their hoods.
