Steve (flame suit on) now has all this in carbon. I owned Flatouts car.

    It was Steve’s products but he said there were some fitment issues but ended up looking amazing.

    So if I do purchase the parts. What paint scheme or what carbon should remain exposed?? I have a Gen3 with OEM gen4 hood. Just paint it all red?? Go with the ACR scheme with exposed carbon like Flatout??

    Below are photos of Andy’s car and my current car. The one area on the trunk he left exposed.

    Despite the amount of work i dont see anything in these
    pics thats permanent so, if you like the looks and have the
    money to spend, then why not do it? Its very easy for some
    people here to say "dont ruin a masterpiece" but personally
    one of the things i like about Vipers is that its so easy to
    make one youre own.

    I’m not worried about anything like reversible. They should have come with a coupe rear anyway instead of the Dodge Stealth rear. My question is this... it’s all CF... how could I incorporate some exposed CF into the color scheme??

    I don’t own a viper yet but I have had quite a few cars with carbon fiber. No matter what it i have had I have had fitment issues. My last one being a 2015 mustang took two weeks for the. Body shop to fit the fenders and doors to make them look right. Still a little gaappy but nothing worse than the factory. Carbon fiber looks awesome when you throw a little paint on it especially with a red car. If it were me and it will be one day I would leave the rear “spoiler carbon and paint the rest. And I would spring for a carbon hood those hoods are heavy.
