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 :wondering:

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.

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.

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.

i think everyone agrees we all have an area where we are proficient (unless your coby and you know almost everything) we all help each other learn more, none of us started off knowing it all and someday youll be at the point to help others. just take your time, keep asking and posting, youll get there lol

thats the lifeblood of this forum is people helping people and thats how it should be, we argue sometimes and give each other crap sometimes but we are all in it to help the others succeed, just keep at it. :nuts:
