NICE! Definetly never thought of doing matte for a roof. I think matte doesn't get enough attention as it should. Looks REAL good man, nice work!

Thanks guys...I live in Miami had it done in Ft. Lauderdale at Car Wrap Solutions...they did an amazing job. I opted for a 3M film which is the newest on the market, has a UV protection and comes with a 5 year warranty on fading, this was my big concern. Total cost was $450.00.

Looks really good, but wouldn't paint cost about that much? I was thinking $200 or so but wow!!!

Probably and it'll last a lifetime. 3M vinyl can be purchased in a size large enough for the roof for $85 online. I'm going that route. There is another brand that offers thicker mil vinyl that runs a tad more at $90 or so for a piece large enough for the roof.

I checked into having it painted, but with labor the estimate was about $800.00, plus Im a little lazy, so just had someone else do it. I will post more pics, getting new wheels in the next couple of days..Thanks for all the compliments, Im a new Forte koup owner, glad to see just a great community.

The vinyl wrap looks great, especially on the white Koup! I'm just curious MiamiBeach, if you get a sharkfin antenna would you vinyl wrap that too lol

If you do this yourself could you post a DIY or just the size of the vinyl you used for your roof? I have been considering this but not sure how to do it and everywhere I quoted is asking for $300..
