Hey..i plan to get a Cf hood (the other one i had wasn't to good of a fitment so it was returned, and i wasn't digging it to well, but now i want it again with this so...) was wondering how much would it cost to get the sides painted? a great example would be

(hope they don't mind)

i was wondering would anyone know the estimate? or would it be cheaper altogether just painting my hood because of the rock chips..i really hate my hood and it needs to go because the rock chips is an eyesore

thanks

i wouldnt pay more than 200 for it. all they do is tape off the middle section, prep the carbon and paint. the material isnt crap and the labor is minimum.

i called up a few places that were not closed..such a rip just for it..IMO if you do it urself then its good but hiring someone the labor kills it

If you clicked the links you would see that painting the sides of the hood makes it look really clean and finished IMO.. It's not like he's painting the whole hood here.
