Default The roof is wrapped...

So last week I wrapped my hatch and wing, which was an experience for me since I haven't used vinyl wrap before; it was a learning experience. So this past weekend I wrapped the roof. I took the antenna off and removed the sunroof glass just to make it easier. (don't mind the water spots on the roof )





I will say the roof went better than the hatch and wing probably because I had an idea of what to expect.
Next up is the hood. Not sure if that will get done this weekend but I can hope.

Good job on the wrap on your roof. I remember when you did your hatch and wing.

thank you for the kind words. I am still amazed the sunroof glass is held in by only 4 screws...and I thought that was going to be the biggest pain.

the hood is next. my only question is do I wrap the whole hood or the center part that comes down to a point towards the bumper? Really most of the hood will be covered either way.

Nice job!

4 screws for sunroof, that's a little disturbing... Hopefully decent sized screws then.

(4) Torx T-25 screws, two on each side and that's it. Quite honestly I don't think you need much more, it's pretty solid.

You have to drop the back part headliner to expose the 24mm (i think) bolt that holds the antenna on. The best thing to use is an open end wrench.

Looks good Bill. Also saw the thread about you getting the hood done too. You're a wrapping pro now

After seeing the thread about guys painting the 2 grill surround pieces black, I'm strongly leaning towards doing that to mine. But since it's a lease I'll get them wrapped instead of painted.

Great job. I wanna do the same with carbon fiber. Roof and wing only. Thanks for the insight on the antenna removal.

Just do the middle part. Thats would look hella clean! My Ct F sport has black roof also. But i got mine like that. Yours look really nice!👍
