hey guys, i bought a TRD carbon fiber spoiler off ebay not to long ago, and i need some opinions. i have a Auburn Sky Pearl color, and i was wanting to know, should i paint it the same color, or should i keep it Carbon Fiber? i'm probably going to get a carbon fiber hood, and 2 tone it like everyone does here on the fourms, and i think it will look good with the carbon fiber spoiler, but, then again i'd like it painted....what do you guys think i should do...paint it or keep it carbon fiber...???

Do both. Just like you are going to do with the hood. Paint the spoiler and keep a little edge of it open, so you can see the carbon fiber. It will be a great way to tie the front and rear together. Just a 1.5" strip across the edge of the spoiler should do the trick.

it sounds pretty cool...i'll keep that in mind, but, if you guys had to choose either, painted, or keep the carbon fiber, what would you do between those two?

I'd go painted. Something about C/F on that color. I had a C/F hood a few years ago. I got rid of it. It really took away from the color of the car. When I had the MSM, the C/F hood complimented it so well.

You could have the shop just pin stripe it off, and leave some exposed (c/f) and some painted.

But I think I have seen Flatlines with the C/F and he is right it takes from the color
