Looks great- the 2GS lends itself very well to this treatment.

A wrap always looks like... vinyl. Paint > vinyl!

I did mine black with blue flake a few years ago. I still like the look!

Well I figured I would update my post after more than three years. I've done a large amount of work to it including suspension and interior and the latest being a brand new custom diamond white paint job and a fresh coat of black on the roof.
Most of the black was still in great shape and Shiney as the day I painted it but after two winters and over 30k miles the front part of the roof had a large amount of rock chips so I just resprayed it since it was already apart and in the paint booth.

it just shows the faith people have in the reliability of the 2GS, people spending almost more then the car is worth just fixing it up because it IS that special of a car... I always felt like I spent too much on my car but seeing stuff like this makes me warm inside lol...

Is there any special type of black paint (glossy) needed to pint the roof or regular black paint would do? I would like to paint my Infiniti FX roof in this color.
