Gloss black and I cut around the shark fun. Alittle bit of a pain in the ass but it was worth it

Re: Vinyl roof

Oh you didn't remove the shark fin when you installed the roof? I meant 3 pieces to cover the fin.

Edit: I think I read that wrong, did you vinyl the shark fin or was cutting around it the pita?

The 14's sharkfin can't be removed without dropping the interior headliner

Re: Vinyl roof

When we did mine we were able to pull the clips down enough to looses the clip and bolts on the shark fin. Not a fun job but certainly doable and makes it a whole lot easier

After a lot research, I feel like you can do it yourself however you will need some helping hands on the project. The sheer size of vinyl is what makes this difficult.

I've asked a couple times what guys are paying for this not sure what the answer is. The materials are under $200 for the top 3m stuff though...

I'm going to try my luck with the trim first then do the roof if I feel comfortable.

Cut around the shark fin! As Scott said I wasn't dropping the headliner

Re: Vinyl roof

I paid $300 for the roof, mirrors, front cowls and 15% tint on the front windows. All 3M stuff and it took about 3 hours. We removed the roof rails and the shark fin when we did the roof and I had the mirrors done but have since removed them. Honestly with a helper I think the roof will be easier than the trim because it is basically flat. Be sure to clean it really well, use a heat gun on low to stretch it and move slowly. Might even want to practice with a small piece first, you can easily pull it right off when you're done.

Thanks for the tips dirtycity. I was thinking of getting some knifeless tape as well to knock out the spoiler...
