    bit of advise please carbon bonnet

    im looking at getting a carbon fibre bonnet for my gsi and im debating if to do the roof and boot so it looks carbon down the centre. what are peoples views on this and if it looks ok do i use carbon wrap for roof and boot and spoiler?

    yeah i was thinking that, but everyone and their mum raves about the textured stuff from 3m or whoever
    might be worth a punt?

    i havent seen the 3m stuff in the flesh so i cant comment from experience

    if you cant get a good match then how about just a black vinyl for the roof, boot and spoiler? removable if you dont like it, which is pretty handy

    Ive seen it in flesh and a real carbon bonnet will look awsome, but next to the 3m stuff will make it look stupid, imo ofcourse, theres a place here that does carbon roofs for about £600 including all the work fitting them, which are replacments for the real roof

    my cars black, but i was going to have the bonnet, roof and spoiler done, not the boot... think it would look quite cool, but would stand out lots more on yours, as said try get a photoshop
