Default Carbon Fiber Roof Install Time Lapse

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share the time lapse video I made of the installation of my Lang Racing carbon fiber roof. I did everything myself except for the welding of the roof brace and the reinstallation of the from and rear windshields. I also made a slower and longer version of the video if anyone wants, I just have to upload it. Enjoy!


Final product

Thanks! It took me about 24 hours over 10 days, with the longest day being 3 hours.

It's definitely an awesome mod but it's a lot of work. I never really used my sunroof anyway.

Thanks! I had a lot of people tell me I was crazy and that I was even ruining a perfectly good M3 but I'm happy with the end result

Nice work...I wanna do this eventually. Post more pics of the completed install with the trimmings. What was the soundtrack? Sounded a little like Deadmau5.
