    To vinyl or not to vinyl...

    Hey guys, Im looking for reviews on these two vinyls. I am doing my roof, my car is yellow, and I reaaallllyyyy like the look of carbon fiber with a yellow weave, I think itd look mint with my car. ONLY prob is... Im super skeptical about vinyls. I dont want it to look cheezy, or fall off in a month, or to look like a rice-special!

    Here is option A: 2d carbon fiber Picture - More Detailed Picture about Glossy Surface Yellow 2D Carbon Fiber Vinyl Self Adhesive Carbon Fiber Wrap Picture in Drive Elements from Guangzhou Eagle

    Now option B is a vinyl without the yellow weave.. its called Dinoc by 3M, from what Ive researched this stuff is pretty decent! And obviously I want the best quality I can get.

    INPUT/REVIEWS>>>>>

    Thanks everyone!

    I think the yellow with CF would look a bit on the cheesy side. Might look gold and wouldn't go with the car. I do like the idea of straight up black CF vinyl roof on a yellow Rex. Would look pretty authentic. I know 3M makes good products and tons of supercar aftermarket companies use their products to wrap cars, so I think it would be fantastic, if done right. I've had bad experiences with 70's A Body Mopars and vinyl roofs done improperly...not good.

    Sounds good! Can't wait to see how it turns out. I haven't seen anybody try it on a Rex yet and I think it'd be cool.

    Off colored body panels look terrible on every car.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    I saw it once on a 06 sti, and it looked gorgeous! Unfortunately I didnt get the name of vinyl cause I was still young in the industry and it didnt cross my mind.
