Whats your opinion on this setup!

I have a silver Celica and the VS body kit im putting on this week. What would it look like if i got the Invador Hood and also painted that? I think it would look tight. I don't like the carbon fiber Hood look on my car but i would love that Hood painted to match my car. Let me know what you think!

This is prolly a stupid question but on a celly does a Carbon Fiber Hood actually do anything? Since the car is front wheel wouldn't it actually lose traction over the front wheels or is the engine enough to keep it grounded? confused

the difference in weight is probably not enough to really make a difference in traction, especially if you have upgraded rims/tires.

but it does help reduce the overall weight of the car.. and besides, it looks awesome! thumbsup

i would just want everything to flow, im not all about the flashy carbon fiber. I love how it reflects and everything and its benifits but i would rather have it the same color of the car and i think after you guys see it you will like it.

I'm with these guys. Keep it Carbon Fiber.
Here's a suggestion though. Put it on, see how you like it unpainted. If oyu do not like it, paint it. thumbsup
