You would need to sand and prep the carbon fiber anyhow so I don't think the weave pattern would show. I'm not a ainter so I could be wrong but I would figure once it's sanded smooth it would be like any other material that you spray.

Make sure you painter can prep the carbon fiber properly. I've seen cf hoods painted before, some came out awesome and some just looked very dull compared to the rest of the car.

ewww sanding on that much carbon fiber would be the very last thing i would want to do, ive never itched so bad in my life. I think i would rather have poison oak in my lungs.... well its not that bad, but pretty close
