NHB, White vinyl roof, Opinions ?

So I stripped off the old worn carbon effect vinyl off the roof and thinking to go with gloss white. I've put some on (very badly) to see how it looks before I go and get it done professionally, I'm 70/30 inclined to go for it, So opinions please.







Cheers

Tony

Well, I'll be honest. I bought the white wrap to do the roof thinking how hard can it be, it's almost flat ***.......

Well after covering about 4 inches it all went boobies up. wrinkles and creases everywhere.

I've seen the other post by bennyboi2005 and looks the dogs whole car wrapped in matte white. Thats the way to go.......... But cant help thinking, what does it look like with the doors open ?

Roof is easier as a two+ man job. That way you can stretch it out
