Black roof
« on: May 23, 2012, 02:48:27 am »
Hi,
So I'm thinking about wraping my roof black,
Has anyone done this?.
Do you think it will look nice?.

    I would lean more to gloss than matt. Get some photoshops made up

    Gloss would look better although I still wouldn't do it.

    The red ones with sunroofs look a little odd, work slightly better with black stripes but not convinced

    It's the red bit behind the Skydome that makes them look odd.

    I will be transplanting my AGP spoiler for an EVO unit and getting it and the last bit of red on the roof sprayed black soon :thumb:

    If you've got a sunroof or glass roof finishing off the rest of the roof in Black could really complete the look but not everyones cupa tea, at least with wrap it can come off if your not feeling it

    I want to do it to mine at some point but I have Gloss Black EsseEsse wheels and Gloss Black mirror caps so it would all fit together. The only reason I haven't is it costs about £180 to be done properly by my local vehicle wrappers and so far I haven't been rich enough to throw that much money at something that 'might' work.

    That being said it works on my friends Corsa that looks like the one below:
