They can be painted the same color as the car but some people enjoy the look and/or the cost saving of not having to get it painted. I'm leaning towards one of these as I've heard quotes of $1Kplus to have a fiberglass hood painted and having my fenders blended so the paint matches.

Thanks for the posts guys. That silver SRT is by far my favorite car on here. (no offense to any members) The reason i'm looking for a CBD hood is while i was at a buddy's house, some idiot thought it would be fun to run across the hoods of parked cars. blahh. but anyways i wanted to just go carbon, seeing as a carbon hood is about 899.00 and a stock R/T hood was 952.00.

How big of a weight difference is there between the CF hood versus the stock hood, and would there be much improvement as far as performance is concerned? [I have a 2.7L] Any pics of CF on Inferno Red?

Stock RT hood: 25-26lbs
CBD Fiberglass hood: 22-25lbs
CBD Carbon Fiber hood: 20lbs
CBD Race Hood: 4-7lbs (racing only/all carbon fiber)

No diiference in performance, more cosmestic than anything. You would need to do a lot more weight reduction on other body panels to see a difference. The stock hoods are aluminum so already a light hood from the factory.

Can't remember who has the Inferno Red but here is a TorRed

Are those stock rims that have been powder coated?
That ride belongs to BOSChargerRT. No, according to his signature block they are 22" flat black SRT replicas.
