Default Carbon Fiber Roof, anybody?

I'm pretty sure I am having the roof wrapped in carbon fiber but wanted to see if anybody has done this? I know mostly everybody paints theirs black "i did on my old 350z" but thinking something different.

Let me know if anybody has it done on there Z. Pics would be awesome

if you're talking about 3M DiNoc wrap then ive done it on my car. it looked okay but wasnt my thing so pulled it off the next day.



here's where it ended up... it's recycleable!

i wasnt considering vinyl... but instead going with real carbon fiber and then clear coated..... something to match my interior.

I am just not a fan of the vinyl look.

Here's SUNLINE carbon fiber (real, glossy) roof. Always admired it. I personally think it looks good.









if you can come up with something like that, do you think you'll have good sales?
