    2011 WRX Black Gloss Vinyl Roof

    Hey guys, so I decided to change up the look. I removed my roof rack and got Premium Auto Styling to wrap my roof with the best 3m Wrap they have. Turned out well! Holding up well too. I also recorded a video for your viewing enjoyment.

    btw, he gave me a 15% off coupon code, its good to go with you guys too if interested.

    Coupon code: Smurfin15

    That video was recommended to me on youtube a couple days after you posted it, and it actually inspired me to wrap my roof. I chose a carbon fiber vinyl myself, and wrapped my roof just a few days ago. It's not the best job, even taking my time with it and using a heat gun. I think the total time I spent on it was about 4-5hrs? I know it seems like a long time, but I was really trying to be patient with it and really trying to get all the bubbles out and preventing creases. Though its not the best job, but it was a great learning experience for when I have to replace it! I'll post a picture of it tomorrow to show you guys. Also, I really enjoy your videos Mike, keep up the good work!

    Vinyl roofs back in the seventies were notorious for trapping moisture and promoting rust. This is something that needs consideration if one is considering having this done.

    Don't think these are the same type of vinyls from the 70's bro.

    I felt the same way so I payed a little more to have it installed. It's worth it for me because I can't even put a damn sticker on straight haha.
