Default my freshly painted black roof!

So I just finished painting the roof black on my gs400 and I'm so happy with how it turned out I will be color sanding and buffing it in the next few days so it looks like glass.
I used dupont basecoat and dupont clearcoat so it will last even through years of hot sun
I will be working on the car for the next few weeks to fix all the paint and body flaws and then hopefully some L tuned springs and new wheels

Thanks and painting it is easier for me because I can do it all myself and if I want to pearl white again I will just sand it off and repaint it, but I'm very happy with the way it looks so I don't plan on going back
