so i have a white 99 sunfire gt and ive been wanting to paint my roof black for a while. but my fiance has talked me out of painting it for resale purposes (hopefully not for a long time, i think its an awesome little car). so i ordered a 5x5 sheet of gloss black vinyl for twenty five bucks, i figure its cheaper then painting it, and if i screw up or change my mind later on its easier to undo then paint, so my question is how hard is it to do a roof wrap. i have a sunroof and i am basically just doing the center skin of the roof, from the windsheild to the rear window, and from the drivers side weatherstrip to the pass. side. has anyone done this before, im assuming it will be like putting on a huge a$$ decal, just work slow and squeegie it from one end to the other, correct me if im wrong, thoughts and input welcome and appreciated!


Please tell where to get GLOSS BLACK wrap. Only could find matte or lesser than gloss. Dying to know.

Looks good. A suggestion for anyone else going to do this. Just before you go to put the vinyl on spray it down with windex. The vinyl wont stick to the windex but when you squeegy the vinyl on it pushes the windex out and then the vinyl sticks. It makes it much easier to get all the bubbles out and make sure its all lined up correctly. Its how we put all the decals on the racecar last year, worked great because we actually got all the numbers level and crap.

That is exactly how we put all the vinyl on the brother car.

How do you maintain vinyl wrap? Can it last like paint? I'm considering this on my delaminating finish because I don' t have time or money to put into a paint job. I wonder if the vinyl wrap will adhere well to black primer.

Just make sure you wash the roof and surrounding area very well before applying the vinyl. If you get dirt on the adhesive, it won't stick very well.

Roofs are pretty quick. I did the roof of a 2011 camry in about 15 minutes. I was lucky enough to not have to worry about a sun roof though.

I have about 20' of car.wrap in the garage left over from a training. I've thought about wrapping parts of the car for giggles.


What color? I would take some of it off ur hand if its black gloss or flat doesnt matter.
