Is it possible to sand down the carbon SVR hood to have it exposed like the factory exposed ones?

I was talking to 1016 industries about possibly buying a carbon hood, or an OEM one, and they said this is possible?

Can anyone vouch for this?

Thanks

Don't know why the hood couldn't be carefully sanded down to the gel coat and then sprayed with clear coat. Problem is you won't know what the carbon matting looks like until it's exposed so may not be as aesthetically pleasing as a hood built to show the mat.

I recently saw this on Instagram.

Looks like they wrapped the hood in CF.
But they claim it’s a factory hood, I think they could be mistaken? Factory hoods only have CF exposed in the centre of the hood and not the whole hood.
I could be missing something?

Something to think bout. If you want to see what it looks like, you can always test it on the underside of the hood that has exposed CF. I think that would give you a good indication of what it would look like?
If you don’t like it then you’ll never see it.
