i think the cost of painting ur stock hood is abt the same as the cost of buying a cf hood, esp when u're in cali..... besides, buying a cf hood means u get to keep ur stock hood, and u can put the stock one back on should u decide to part out in the future...

Real carbon fiber = the sh!t
Painting hood black to imitate carbon fiber = ghetto

Start saving.

i think these guys have got the hood part of your question covered. now for the vinyl.....BIIIG no to that...in my opinion. unless you're being sponsored by someone...and you've got like full body decals...keep the big stickers off the car =]

yea, painting it black to imitate CF is a no-no.... i bought another stock hood awhile back (due to an accident) and they came black, everyone thought that i couldn't afford CF so i bought an unpainted black hood... lol... losers.... for the vinyl, unless you've got a show-ready accord, i wouldn't put full body graphics just yet, and make sure it's tasteful and clean, people seem to just throw anything on their cars lately....
