Minimum wage kids would call it, “cleaaan”

I don’t like vinyl wraps in exterior or interior. Like hiding a flaw on your car with an oversized sticker.

My daily has a black roof, done at some point by previous owner for unknown reasons. I don't hate it, but would I have paid money myself to make the roof black? No.

The Black vinyl usually appears cheap, and orange peeled.

I recently checked out Black PPF, and it was INCREDIBLE. Extremely smooth and glossy, like high end paint.

I asked what it cost to do a roof and was quoted ~$600... LOL.

Seems like I'm in the minority here... My whole car is wrapped. I'm not sure I support ONLY wrapping the roof since I have heard about problems from other people, but if that's the look you want then go for it. As long as it's put into place well it won't have any issues.

The only negative is people looking at it up close and they get to turn to their friends and laugh "ya I knew it's a wrap broooooo it's not paaaaaaaint I knew it I knew it!" as if it matters lol but you get used to it. I like different colors so wrapping is a great thing for me. If I had the money I'd put a new wrap on every 6 months. That being said, I have seen plenty of wraps that look god awful.

..... I don't recall saying there was anything wrong with it? Is that what the stigma is? People think that bc I wrapped it then I don't like the color underneath?? The way I see it: I have a bitchin color underneath and a temporary bitchin color on top.
