You can do anything. The only limit is your imagination and the amount of Dremel cutting tools you have in your garage.

They will be carbon fiber. I highly doubt you know what you are talking about considering you said "carbon fiber color". Having been active in both the high-performance automobile community and having been a bicycle racer for a few years I can safely tell you, there is no "carbon fiber color". If there is, its dark grey to black. I think you are thinking of the carbon fiber weave, the kind you see on the hoods of some cars? You don't paint that on. Secondly, if you are saying the new PB will be made of that type of carbon fiber weave I'll be very disappointed. You'd be surprised how FRAGILE that is. When people want to build something out of strong carbon fiber they use a different kind of weave, which you probably haven't seen because its usually covered by the "checkerboard" type of CF.


All of that said, I think you are talking out of your *** about the G5 and i hate that.

...dude. calm down. The guy wasn't doing anything but talking about a rumor he heard. You can't jump all over someone because they don't work in the automotive paint industry, or would like to believe rumors they hear about the PBs.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.
