I know there was a thread going around last summer - has anyone painted thier roof or hatch besides this one guy? I was looking for some ideas. . .

made a chop for an idea of how it will look. Stock one looks pretty ghey, but if i can pull this off right i think it will look hawwwt.




this was the only one i could find, has anyone else attempted this?

If you're going to paint it, do it like the first one, its similar to a 240sx lines to me, and if you're going to to do the second one, better be all carbon fiber, or you will look like someone who hasn't got their car painted.

I was thinking about this today, and instead of painting it, couldnt you just get some large vinyl graphics made. at least that way you could always take them off if you get sick of the look. Is there some reason that wouldnt work? I have no expierence with graphics of any kind but I would think you could just get some high gloss plain black ones and it would look just like it was painted.just a thought.

the only person i know that has put vinyl on their hood to color match their car actually is myufo. me and sqratch painted our cf hoods along with some others!!

anyways, vinyl is a great way to test the waters since you are stuck with it once you paint it! each way has it pros and cons, i.e. con of vinyl is that it never fully matches the color of the car whereas a con for painting your hood, when it comes to sell it, you need to find someone that has the exact same color as you!
