    This reminds me of a few years ago when the John Force team started painting their cars flat black because the paint didn't weigh as much....

    I vote no, I think it looks just about as bad as a un-painted carbon-fiber hood

    My vote - don't ask people what you should do, make the decision yourself.

    Flat black... not gloss.

    I've seen it in person and it really does look hot.

    I concur, it looks better with a higher contrast color.

    I think it might look good if you also did a pin stripe down the belt line, tinted the windows dark (if they're not already), and shined up/painted all the black parts on the exterior.
