Re: Black roof, Yay or Nay

I'll need to take better pics of the roof area when I get the Jeep back, but the part I turned black lines up perfect with the rear window, still have a tinted 3rd tail lights which will look great there too.

Doing it door to door would be a no go I'm afraid. It would match the width of the windshield but due to the design of the rear quarter panel, it would mean doing a thin strip all the way along that at the top which IMO would look pretty crap. The WK has a more uniform roof.

Here's a real bad Ps of it from above, you can see how the rear quarter basically extends down to the windshield. From above it may look, alright, but from the side which is more important it wouldn't sit right. Bear in mind, the roof rails will be refitted as I can not stand seeing those stupid fixings and didn't want a 500 buck bodyshop bill to remove, smooth then repaint the whole roof to get rid of them...




Soon as I pick the Jeep up I'll grab a few shots and update this thread with real photoshops not the crap you are seeing here!

Re: Black roof, Yay or Nay

Ah! I gotcha, I see where you're coming from now dude. Didn't think of that. Yeah it wouldn't look that great if you did the whole roof. Better with the initial idea

I'm still tempted to do matte black viper stripes
