Wrapped roof in gloss black

Finally got around to getting my car's roof wrapped in gloss black. I think the results were very good!!! Wrapped the roof, shark fin and rear window spoiler...

What you guys think?

looks good definetly like the black roof with the grey and think it was the decision to wrap the roof spoiler in black also as i don't think it would have looked right as the same colour as the car

Does the gloss black vinyl shine like paint? I heard it doesn't.

lol Initially I felt the same was about the spoiler, but it's starting to grow on me. Humans aren't too fond of change so it takes a bit to adapt to it. lol

Yea, I even thought about wrapping the trunk lip but then decided not too because I felt it would've looked out of place.

eBay :-) Then had it painted Space Gray before wrapping it, so whenever I decide to take the wrap off, it will be already painted.

It does shine. Might not have the depth as a paint job with a clear coat but it does shine and looks great. Next best thing I guess.

Your car looks great id recommend you Wrap the trunk lip also it gives it that little extra. I just had all three on mine done i went a week without the window spoiler unwrapped and it bothered me every time I saw it, It looked so out of place with a black roof.

Those side skirts really pop on space grey. Love the wheel color on your car as well.
