Painting TRD wing black too ricey?

about 2 get TRD wing and an absolutely red car.. was wondering if its good idea to paint it black to give it the carbon fiber look.. if i can't get a hold of the carbon fiber blade and actually paint the blade black.. you think it'll look too ricey?

dont do it. just paint the sides red, and buy a carbon fiber blade in the forsale or GB forum. i beleive simon is selling TRD carbon fiber ceter bar with brake light.

I think painting it black for it being black is cool but not if your painting it to immitate carbon fiber. If the black matches with other parts of ur car than i think it will look nice.

what pissprinkler said, paint it black if you want to go with a black and red scheme. if you're trying to make it look like a Carbon Fiber blade, then go with Carbon Fiber.

there's nothing rice about 2-toning it a bit thumbsup

get it all done in red now... and then when you have the money or come across an excellent deal, jump on it... no need to go "half-way there" and look like that's what you did in the process rice

your car will look fine with everything all one color - focus on what you can afford and look out for good deals that you cannot pass-up thumbsup

well said, isaac. don't ever go cheap on your car. always get the best you can afford, and if you can't afford something like the Carbon Fiber blade, get something good that you can afford.
