vinyl roof

I was just wondering if the roof can be customized with like a vinyl sheet cover. Like a silver body and black roof?

Sure you can vinyl wrap it, I've seen it done on plenty of other cars before. As long as you have a nice, clean surface to work with, the vinyl should stick fine. I've even seen people use the 3m fake carbon fiber to wrap roofs with.

careful with your clearcoat up there tho, it can discolor from the heat after you remove it

can you elaborate on this???

are you saying that peeling off the vinyl will pull the clearcoat?
i know mitsu's paint leaves a lot to be desired but most vinyl shouldn't pull factory paint/clearcoat off cars... if you have personal experience of this, please share!

if possible, mention the brand/model of vinyl you were using...

i think u misunderstood him, he wasn't saying it would pull of the clear coat. he was saying it would be discolored from the heat. i too would like to know more about this because i've never heard of it. I've heard that wax can discolor, but not clear coat.
