Cowl hood color options!!!

So I am pretty much set on a 3 inch cowl hood for my 13 but Idk if I should paint it red with black stripes on the cowl or just gloss black.. Help
The red car is not black it is carbon fiber but you get the idea more less.

Although CF over red looks sick, I'd have to agree with this statement. With the south Texas heat, I spend a lot of time polishing this **** off and would only recommend CF if your car spent most of its days under a canopy or in a garage.

Thanks man. I'll be a lot happier with it when I move into my new house and it finally gets its own garage space.

It's less noticeable in red IMO. I'd go with black!

I've seen some sweet carbon fiber hoods that are painted in sections and allow the cf to show as well
