My personal opinion, I liked how it looked before! But as long as your happy. A lot of work goes into wrapping (I know because I'm wrapping my own car)

I think thatīs real carbon fiber, since you can see the glow of if!, not sure but the wrap wont glow and have those detail spots, or I am wrong?

Yeah looks like he replaced the crashed bits with CF replacements where he could. Solid plan, but I'd probably wrap them to match the rest of the car.

Those are full carbon fiber fenders and hood, no layering. I love it, thats all that matters. Cheap? Theres over 15k in this car. Yeah it has ebay head lights, but I dont mind. And the black plasti dip is my winter look. Im no where near cheap with my stuff, but it may look cheap to you. Its cool no hard feelings, I been modding car my whole life and always had people hate and love.

I like it! Not everyone has to love it! I know how expensive carbon fiber is... and getting up from a crash is really hard... even so the car looks cool! keep it up!

You asked for opinions.

Money doesn't equal taste.

Opinions are fine guys. But just to clarify I never asked for opinions! It says thanks for looking, so thanks. Sometime in the future I will paint, but right now I can't. Once again thanks for looking either way.

By posting on a forum, you're asking for opinions.

You have a carbon trunk, fenders, and hood (stock hood is lighter btw), with the rest of the car plastidipped. That's why it looks cheap. Because Plastidip is a quick way to turn your nice car into a hooptie.

Fiberglass with a thin layer of carbon over it with a clear coat is not a carbon fiber part.

Glad you were able to get it back together.
