2 new mods quick pix

Whats up everyone
i recently bought a cf m3 spoiler. i think the cf is a nice touch i was debating getting it painted but i kinda like the cf. I also bought some vinyl and attempted to wrap my roof. i must say i contemplated ripping it off 100 times it sucked putting it on. i kinda screwed up a few times i cut the vinyl to short in some spot but some how in the end it came out pretty decent. i might take it off or leave it on im not sure yet

please leave me feedback.

ps im going to get the performance exhaust installed this weekend ill put a video up and do a proper photo shoot.

the vinyl really was hard it took me like 5 hours. i think if i was to do it again it would be much easier. i didnt feel like trying to vinyl the shark fin so i just put it on with the original color do you guys think it looks fine like that?

my advice for anyone thats going to vinyl their roof be careful how you cut it make sure u have extra slack. idk how people wrap their whole cars i legit only gave up and the roofs suppose to be the easiest thing.

leave me feedback
Thanks
John

looks alright from what pics you've given, but it looks like you might want to redo it if you want it straight clean install...it might just be the pics or lighting, but there are bubbles/wrinkles in some shots? about the fin, i personally would get it done too, but stock looks good too. hats off to you for doing it yourself! i would probably be too scared to mess it up so i'd probably have a shop do it hehe.

trunk spoiler looks awesome too

Good start man, I like the look. Feel your pain on the vinyl, took like 10 hours to shadowline my trim and grills last year. Pain in the ass!

Just did the same thing to mine. I wrapped the rails and the fin. The fin was a major PIA to get right. Took about 10 trys... I ended up doing my window trim matte as well because I didn't think the matte and gloss black looked right. The trim is easy compared to the roof. But your car looks great man!

Is your diffuser painted to match the Montego?

Personally I would leave the CF look only if you can get your hands on a CF diffuser as well...which will really bring it all together nice

If you dont plan to get a CF diffuser then maybe paint it...
