painted coil covers

Okay guys I know this is not cost effective, but I'm thinking about ordering the carbon fiber coil covers and having them painted over with a blue candy to give it a blue tint. What do you think?

I think you'll have really expensive blue coil covers. I would just paint your stock ones blue.

I love the carbon fiber look but want a hint of blue in it. Too many people have the blue coil covers. I want something different.

U did mention not cost effective... U can get an opinion of a body shop, I'm sure that's your best bet

Hydo carbon is a painting process I think. I bet they could do a blue hydro carbon. I would contact a body shop. I bet they could creat a blue tinted clear to shoot over the carbon fiber.

I would do a solid blue fading into the carbon fiber actually. That would look very unique.
