Orange Carbon Fiber Wrap

I have a new hood not painted I want to have the hood wrapped in carbon fiber my cobalt is sunburst orange and I saw online that they have orange carbon fiber I was wondering how close the 2 colors would be or if i should just go with black carbon fiber wrap I was thinking of doing some of the interior trim in the orange carbon fiber also

If you want to see how closely it matches then you might be better off picking up a sample piece and comparing the color. Most places have small sample pieces for pretty cheap

It will never match because they are 2 different materials. As long as it is the right tint. To many black fiber hoods, be different.

Not a fan of faux carbon fiber, but it'd be nice to break the black hood/roof/truck look with something different.

If it looks good together I will do the hood and maybe the trunk I will do some of the interior in it like the center console and the part around the radio and if possible I would like to do the door panel inserts this site is the best everyone has been so helpful I cant thank everyone enough

i know your in the hospital and this is a little off topic, but i think we all would love to see pics of the orange beast with the butterfly doors, not only is the orange cobalt my fav color but it would be awesome to see some pics of the mods you are getting done to this thing, can we hope to see a thread with some pics?

P.S. if its too much don't worry about it i know its rough being stuck in the hospital for a while.

I can try to I will see if my friend Doug, who has done most of the work on it can send the pics to my phone of what has been done so far so far the doors are done to give me more room to get in and out of it easier with my wheelchair the hand controls are installed and i did the dash lights with the orange led's (I wont know till sat if I got all the led's in correctly ) I have orange and black seat covers in it and I want to paint the interior all black with orange carbon fiber around the radio , center console and the door inserts and on the hood I want to paint the wheels satin black I am looking for some (cheap) used lowering springs because I really want to lower it I just love how good the cobalts look lowered when its all done and I get out I will have to get the courage to drive it

its always rough after being in a wreck (especially a wreck of the magnitude you were in), but i think you'll be fine, you toughed it out through all the crap in the hospital and your even fixing parts in your room there, i think you'll do fine when you get in it, the cobalt is a great car and it will take care of you well.
