    Now that im almost done horsepower-wise for now(note the "for now") I want to make it look better. At first i was looking at fiberglass hoods but since you have to paint those i (UPS GUY JUST ROLLED UP MY DRIVE WAY.........EIBACH PRO KIT!!! :banana: ) umm ok continueing on.....oh yeah...since you have to paint the fiberglass hoods im thinking maybe ill pay a lil more for the carbon fiber since you don't have to paint them. However im worried about a maybe a lil ricer look because of the carbon fiber. Hook it up with some pics

    p.s - my car is black so i would prefer black stangs

    You live close enough for me to come over and give you a beat down. Don't want to read the words "Carbon Fiber" on this board again. For that matter "Clear tail light" threads are getting locked.

    Vibe is right, CF does not belong on domestics. They are for riced out imports to put on there cars.

    What about a painted carbon fiber hood? You'd never know it was CF unless the person said so... But then again the ricers get it for looks and dont paint it :nonono:

    On the "rice" subject saw a 94-95 stang drive by with ricer decals on the side of the car and a big out of place erector set spoiler, you know the ones you buy in a box that says some assembly required.It was about 12-14" inches off the deck lid and angled in the wrong direction causing lift not down force. It look so funny I almost wrecked because I was laughing so hard.

    Keep the rice off our cars.....

    I like the old look of the boss mustangs with the primer black hoods. I'm not saying that you should go out and buy a "kama...wutever" cf hood, but you dont have to paint your hood if you dont want.

    I'm not a ricer fan either...but I think vib was a bit harsh...these boards are to learn, everyone has different tastes. They do make them so imo it's a valid request. The guy just wants to get away with not painting one.

    Agreed, I mean I dont think everyones Mustang should be just alike, I like my Stang b/c its a little diffrent from the others around here, Not to many Red SN95's around w/ White Cobra R rims. If you buy a hood and get it painted does it really matter what the hood is made out of? If someone gets a CF hood as long as it matches the car black on black then I dont see anything wrong with that.

    I find it stupid that its viewed that we are limited to do certin things to our stangs b/c its considered an "Import thing" Correct me if Im wrong but havent we ( Mustangs/Demostics) Been around longer then them? Just as long as your not doing a big gay Aluminum wing or Euro tail lights then there isent much you can do to rice out a stang as long as its done Tastefully. Now alot of people think Neons are Ricy but thats only from b/c of that stupid Movie, Ive seen black Mustangs w/ Purple Neons under them and it honstly look really good and I saw that way before the movie F&F was even thought of being made, now all of sudden b/c of that movie that stang would be considered rice :shrug:

    Just my .02

    "You live close enough for me to come over and give you a beat down. Don't want to read the words "Carbon Fiber" on this board again"

    how about Saleen S7 and the Enzo and the F-50, so I fail to see how Carbon fiber (which got big in Indy car) is totally rice?
