    Talking Can someone gloss black my roof please?

    Debating getting it wrapped, but will probably spray it... Also colour coded boot strip.

    Pics to use are here

    Also debating painting the pillars as the vinyls not the best and spray the full mirrors 1 series style (even if I keep the covers CC'd)...


    It's been subtle for years... Must be having a mid life crisis

    I took my RRS wheels over to Pitstopdesigns today for the their third re-colour (just want them darker) and the owner (Gary) mentioned plastidip, I've seen posts on here recently about it, anyway, he said that they were looking into using it for temp spray jobs, as it peels off like a vinyl wrap when you get fed up with it,only difference is that its cheaper than a vinyl wrap, may be worth giving that a try?

    Also, Over in the states they apparently use it to protect their wheels during winter, and then deflate a wheel and pull the plastidip off when the weathers better :-)

    Cheers Colin... Not sure if bit much.

    If I was to just do the top panel what bits would you Guys do, the top panel, roof rack strips and bit above rear window... Or would you leave the strips colour coded?
