    Painting a carbon fiber hood

    Is it possible to paint a carbon fiber hood to match the satin pearl white? I love the look of the Seibon hoods but I'm not sure I like the look of carbon fiber. If so, would I just be able to take it to a body shop and ask them to color match it?

    Any idea what that might cost?

    You can paint it whatever color you like. If the shop isn't familiar with painting CF it can look a little off. Many places should be comfortable with it by now though.

    You want to paint it. Or, it will look like crap as it ages (fades)...
