What we have here is commonly referred to as a generational gap

Naugahide is made from Naugas. Top-grain Naugahide is the most desireable form of naugahide. The Nauga is a memeber of the Wombat family, and can usually be found in the company of Snipes.

Naugahide is also known by the generic trade name vinyl.

Haven't been on a Snipe hunt for years.
In Humber they have Super Snipes though.

so every mod has to add performance? Alot of guys in the Z/G35 community put cf roofs or black painted roofs on just b/c it makes the car look sporty. Are they trying to imitate the M car which has come out after the new M3? Cars have had CF roofs long before the new M...

Hundreds of members can vouch for Bluebat on G35driver.com and G35nyc.com

You can check out "BlueBat's" work here:

Anyone in San Diego or near by willing to have their E92 used as a test car?
BlueBat is famous in the 350z community that is where I came from his overlays are the best out there!!!

Yeah that guy has serious skills. When I had the g35 got some overlays for my tails and was very happy with them. Hmmm not sure about how it would look. I'd have to be really feeling it for it to work. I agree with the people here it be a B!tch to install if you don't know what your doing.

this is exactly why i called upon,Bat, if the overlay is anything like it was for the G35s, then it will be a small fraction of that price. im still waiting for a response from him.

Why would you want to stick a sheet of black vinyl on your roof?



Please tell me it's not to have the CF "look"


Oh please oh please oh please...

I think it's more of what it represents (lightweight, track, etc)

only works on the roof


I think if done right (goes the the RIGHT edges) it could look great on AW. I would be willing to try it out

Very true.

Good point if someone wants to minimize the CF look.
