Should a carbon fiber hood be the same color as the body paint?

Im trying to convinve my dad to buy me a old honda prelude . The car is red but the carbon fiber hood is black. My dad is convinced that the hood should be the same color as the car and because of this, he wont buy the car. I said that he is wrong and thats just how the hood should be. Whos right?

Your are right I dont think i have ever seen a carbon fiber hood that is the same color as a car. Most carbon fiber is always black and kinda grey. So you are right.

yes,crabon fibre is suppose to be that color.i dont suggest painting over it.You neve know what chemical changes you might cause.















im pretty sure you can buy colored Carbon fibre,but it may still look a little off.















































Itll get you MAD street cred with that CF hood.Next thing you wanna get is 14 inch wheels////////
