painting carbon fiber

Can you paint a carbon fiber hood?

And on these cars can you just rely on the factory hatch to keep it closed or do you need the 2 pin holders as well.

Re: painting carbon fiber

You can get CF locks, if you line up the weave right it looks pretty good.

Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer

Re: painting carbon fiber

yeah get the locks, or else! Painted CF can look good, like if you leave the middle section CF and paint the sides.
