    There are folks on here that have done this, I am sure they will chime in. I considered doing this, and was quoted $300. They did tell me the shark fin would need to be sprayed instead of wrapped, FYI. Ultimately, I have decided to have my roof sprayed 15 CBS, though my wife has asked me to slow down a bit on mods, so I will have something to look forward to. Good luck, and post pics when wrapped!

    Plastidip is relatively inexpensive, and if you don't like it.. Peel it off.
    personally, I'm not into the two-tone look.. But hey, it's your car, not mine.

    Careful with dip. On painted surfaces with with a lot of sun/heat it might peel the paint or clearcoat

    If your going to wrap a dark color either got matte or maybe a textured pattern. I would go the plasti dip route. You may want to check out do DGM Picture threads to see what others have done.

    I much prefer the gloss black look over matte.
    There are a few cars with glass roofs like the Kia Optima, and the black gloss roof looks sharp. I've always found matte to look a little rice, but to each their own i guess.
