looks like it came out really good. did you use the soap water to clean the roof as you went along, or does it also function as an adhesive? i tried PMing the same guy when i saw that he was elling it but he hasnt gotten back to me. anyone know where he is

The mild soapy water is only for lubrication while your working.

Looks good from the pictures. If you usually don't get a reply within a day from me, that means I might have not received your PM.

Great job, that looks awesome. Does the car get hotter now when it is sitting in the sun?

Totally Different than for the windows.

I would imagine it might get a bit warmer in the car, but I haven't noticed any difference yet.

Cheap! PM him or shoot him an e-mail at donathon@gmail.com

Edit: To my knowledge Don was ban-ned by the m0derators here for selling the vinyl without paying e90post for a 'vendor account.' (Make your own decision, but I say he's a stand up guy) Email him for info on the material.

FYI to those reading this. Don now has the carbon fiber look vinyl.
It looks really sweet on car roofs!
