I must admit, years ago, I was a fan of vinyl roofs.

I had a light brown one fitted to a bottle green car and it looked classy, well I thought so.

What you need is a gloss black roof to match the Pan roof and rear window, not sure it works too well with carbon

Here is mine that i did last weekend

Looks decent, I struggled with that bit and ended up using individual strips over the handle and then putting the rest on with an oval cut out (looks okay but not fantastic)

I thought the best way would be to cut the handle off and then use a filler and then sand it to give a smooth surface and subsequently wrap it, might not be for everyone but I personally don't think the handle is necessary and it would make wrapping a lot easier.

well done it makes a difference on your car, you know you could have done the little cubby bit without taking it off,

How? I would love to know, it was a bit of a pane taking half the interior out just to get to that small piece

I want to attempt hydrographics. Unfortunately to remove the elements I want to cover I have to remove all 4 doors cards as I want to cover plastics around windows switches on all 4 doors.

On the 3 door taking the door cards off is only about a 5 min job, 2 screws and then just pull away and work around all the clips and then disconnect the electrical switches and lift out

Is that all? I'm used to at least 30 minutes per door job on my passat that's I was delaying my attempts to do it.

After removing elements they have to be sanded, then primed and painted in desired color. After that you apply hydrographics and last step is clear coat.

Just take your time and if you get good quality vinyal and you will be okay, the hardest part of wrapping is cutting the vinyal, as long as you don't stretch it, it will be fine, otherwise it will peel back at the edges
