Default Black roof? Done.

Ok guys, here they are - photographs I took this morning of my freshly vinyled roof. Thanks to John @ ProMax Motorsports for doing a great job at a great price!

Javy, looking good man! Are there any plans to black out the chrome window trim? It could look pretty nice with the black roof, but it does tie in the chrome lip on your wheels. Either way it looks really clean, especially the way the moon roof disappears.

The two side rails are color-matched pieces of plastic held in by (what else) clips. It would be easier to just order new ones in obsidian from the dealership than take them out and vinyl them. John said he could do it but since it's so small, but it wouldn't come out good. So, I'll just order black ones from the dealership, or just have the whole kit & kaboodle painted.

im not really sure about. i think black roofs are mainly for 2door sports cars. some guys on my 350z forum did the black roof and looked nice.

ps.
you park pretty damn close to the curb.
