I decided to make a third attempt at vinyl wrapping my roof (due to clearcoat failure) First attempt the vinyl caught a gust of wind and stuck together badly, Second attempt, I bought a different vinyl wrap, and it was too thin for me, because i tore the crap out of it. This time, I figured out that I needed a heat gun to install it (duh) I have a couple bubbles in the back, and when I was 3/4 finished I tore the front section trying to reposition it getting a fold out, and I tore it. I decided to go ahead and finish the install for practice, and also because even with a tear and a couple bubbles, it looks better than my paint on the roof. I think I can still work the air out the back edge when I feel like attacking it again. The fit around the sunroof was a pain, as I didn't want to ruin the seal, but anything I tried use to slip the vinyl in behind the seal was thin enough to want to tear it. at 40.00 per sheet for the vinyl, or 500.00 quoted to me for it to be professionally done, I can screw it up a couple more times and still be way ahead.

Can’t understand why you wouldn’t have a garage?

That vinyl wrap on the roof is horrible. I'd rather see pealing clear than that ****.

Not sure I feel the CF wrap on the roof. If you are doing it again why not go with piano black? From how the sun hits the roof and the pattern it just looks off. Almost like the roof is already sun bleached compared to the rest of the car. Have you thought about taking the car to a shop so they can re-clear the roof? If the paint is fine and only the clear coat is failing that shouldn't be hard at all for a body shop to take care of and it shouldn't be too expensive.
