Input by painters and anyone on new front lip.

Ok I just ordered this exact same lip.. Its the two peices as in th epicture but the one I got is Carbon Fiber. Now I would just leave it bare carbon fiber but I think it takes away from the clean look .. My car is sebring silver really light silver. and I dont plan on getting a cf hood so I'd like to somehow paint a portion of these so they are silver and match the car but still leave some of the CF showing... I think its a shame to paint over all of it.

So what im asking is its kinda obvious the two areas I could leave clear of paint..

which do you think would look nicer? the outter portion left CF or the innner toward the car.. IM leaning toward the outer left CF..

Oh and how hard would it be for a painter to do that? can they jsut mask it off and paint? or is it going to be difficult?

yea....its a flexing agent. pretty much the same concept as painting a bike. Im lucky that was my dad was a painter back in the day. In fact there isnt much my dad didnt do concerning cars and bikes and such.

Leave it bare carbon fiber for a more aggressive look...

appearance mods before performance mods...hmm...i think open cf would like a total ricer. if he paints most of it to match the car that's not. but open cf on a car that nice just looks like you're competing with civics lol just my honest opinion

paint it all gray except "stone fitness" about 1.5" high and 10 long somewhere on the lip. so you really gotta look to see it

Val I wanted a C-west bumper with a CF splitter and Cannards but $1750 for a bumper on a machine that will never be 20% as fast as my gixxer I think is sort of pointless. I admit im going for a cleaner look with minimal performance mods.

I put better springs on, intake is on the way, catback exhaust. then CF mirrors I want when I get back in town. haha and want a new spoiler. the M style it just sort of goes straight back. not up at all. Then im done.

Well, for me, a cleaner looking mods is not a rice as long as you don't put any dumb stickers with parts that you don't even have or any rediculous non-functional body kit and wings...

Anyway, just don't over do it and it's all good...
