Would it be possible!

Would it be possible to wrap in carbon fiber the 2013 hood vents, do they sell then in carbon fiber already??

I don't see why you couldn't wrap them assuming they come off. Some places could paint them to look like carbon fiber too (hydrocarbon).

I didnt know that you could paint them to look like carbon. I will call some shops tomorrow.
The vent has many corners and would seem like a pain to wrap them.

Do a search online for Hydro Carbon.

I found one that looks like you send them plastic parts and they do it.

I'm not really into the hydro carbon/carbon fiber thing.

But to each their own... That's why we get stangs... Unique and personalized! Go with what you like.

It looks like a flat black until you get really close to it, maybe it was just the picture.
I like it but just to keep it simple i am just going to go with gloss black.

Hmm... I think white hood vents would look better with your theme instead of black... I don't know if there's a white plastidip

How wide is your stripe? It looks great! The black plasti would give it great contrast!

They sell white but I've only ever seen it online. Try Dipyourcar.com.
And am I just missing it or do you not have the stripe on the roof?

Re: Would it be possible!

I think AM has the carbon fiber hood vents for the 2013 already. I could have sworn I saw them on their website when I bought my GT500 stripes last week.

The stripe is 11"... I originally asked for 10" but the dude thought 11 would look better. I think he was right.

You aren't missing anything. There is no stripe on the roof.

I like it! Do you mind me asking what you paid for it? I have a similar stripe but it's too narrow for me and I want to redo it in a matte white finish. I want to do a 12 inch stripe, but I can't find that type of width in anything pre made. Here's a pic...

I thought it would look different and cool, but then i would have to go with the whole theme and i decided not to do it. I will be doing it in gloss black.

I paid about $175 for the hood, trunk, and sides. It wasn't premaid, they custom made it for me.
