Have you ever or can you paint carbon fiber?

I am just curious how or if it is possiable? I want a carbon fiber Hood but my car is black so the Hood will look brown and thats not cool... so can you have them painted to look nice? or They just stuck that brown color on my car?

You can have it painted, but why? Look in the gallery there are plenty of black celicas w. C/F hoods and none of them look brown, the happen to match very well

you can have it painted but a black celi with Carbon Fiber Hood is the best combo imo...

if hes going for the weight difference as opposed to appearance, then does it defeat the purpose? is car paint that heavy?

How does it destroy the entire purpose? The purpose of replacing your Hood with a Carbon Fiber one is for a lighter wieght. spineyes
