Covering the roof with "car wrap" -- options
I have the front 2 slots/openings "wrapped" in clear packing tape, so my wife could do a weekend road-trip without any audio accompaniment.
It even survived a rain-storm. But looks nasty, and I know it won't last.
By "wrap" you mean vinyl signage material AKA "car wrap", right?
I was looking into the exact same thing.
It seems that Avery Dennison and Vivid Vinyls are the 2 most popular brands.
First I considered something that looks the same.
My car is that odd light silvery blue.
Here are the Avery Dennison colours:
You can find most on eBay and/or Amazon, but mostly in 1' x 5' strips.
It comes in rolls 152 cm wide (approx 5') and it seems that folks are buying rolls and then slicing off 1' and 2' wide strips and selling.
Here's a 1/2 meter long piece of the closest colour
... CAD$48 for comparison.
I haven't measure the roof yet, but I think its pretty long, if you want to cover from the windshield to the rear spoiler.
Here is a 5' by 5' piece
. I need to see if that would cover it, from the windshield, but my wife has the car at work.
The price is great, at only C$40-. I can't get anything fixed of the original roof for that.
So, then I thought "if it doesn't match, then maybe pick something contrasting?"
Here's a 6' x 5' sheet of fake carbon fibre for under C$150
But it shouldn't be something shiny and smooth, as the old sun-roof panels underneath will look like crap.
So, I found this stuff: Black 3D Carbon Fiber 5ft x 5ft 25sq ft Cast Vinyl Decal New Bubble-Free Car Wrap
It should (maybe) hide the lumpy nature of the sun-roof underneath.
I might need to buy 2 sheets to cover the whole roof.
Then I can use the leftovers on ... interior trim? My motorcycle?
Better than 2 sheets, here is the bigger sheet: Black 3D Carbon Fiber 5ft x 10ft 50sq ft Cast VViViD8 Vinyl Car Wrap
for C$120 (less than US$100).
What do you think? Worth a try?
