good places to do vinyl roof wrap in Vancouver?

So im thinking of doing a glossy black overlay on my roof, and I was wondering if anyone has done it locally and knows a good/inexpensive shop that is willing to do it? I want to find someone that doesn't overcharge for having to do the sunroof and shark fin antenna. Any suggestions? thanks

i was actually thinking of doing it. N-motion wants around $ 400 for the roof, shark fin and channels. I believe without the channels its 350.

I went to blitzgear they want around 800

Then I talked to this guy in the ubc area, although i havent met him in person yet, he just started his own business, and i ask for an estimate he says around 200 maybe? he has to see the car first to give the exact quote.

Only problem with N-motions glossy black vinyl is, its only about 2mm thick so it may tear easy. Blitzgears on the other hand is a little bit thicker.
I am not sure how thick the vinyl it is for the other guy. But as far as i am concern, I will only have my car till about July of next year i believe so I may just go with n-motion to save some money. It will probably last me that long. Not unless i can get an exact quote from the UBC guy

Yea i asked n-motion recently, they said $400, i think that's pretty expensive for a roof wrap tho.

Ive been in contact with a guy from this place, http://www.vehicle-graphics.ca/ and he gave me a quote around $200 to do the roof with a sunroof, but not sharkfin antenna.

Snipersix if you're interested in doing it, maybe i can talk to him to see if he can give us a discount, so that he can do both our cars including the sharkfin antenna for around $200-250? Let me know.

whatever you do just make sure they use the 3M Di-NOC stuff..all other stuff on the market doesn't even look close to as real IMO
