Photoshop and/or pic request

Ive been thinking about my next cosmetic mod, I have to say Im jealous of the altimas with black roofs on white or silver. But what about the black alti's!!!!? anywho I was wondering about a dark gunmetal or even a carbon fiber vinyl overlay on my roof, thoughts? Pictures? Photoshop it?

I will be doing my radio and a/c control trims, since they are black smooth plastic(dash kit for my double din) in carbon fiber vinyl.

With a dark overlay, you're gonna have to point it out to everyone. Unless they walk right up on your car, most people aren't gonna notice it. What about a brushed stainless steel overlay???

Or you can get the "Crystal Ninja" to cover it with Swarovski crystals like Ryan Friedlinghaus did for his wife's Mini Cooper.

on a black car, the only think that will be noticable but not ugly as sin is either flat black, or Carbon fiber wrap. There are a lot of Black Maximas with the CF setup if you google images or check out the maxima forums. It'll give you a good idea of what to expect


PM me for Overlay or Projector Retrofits

I was going to say a carbon fiber wrap like these:

Carbon Fiber Sheets | 3D Twill Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric Vinyl Sheets

not sure if transparent would work or be noticeable:

Twill-Weave 3D Transparent Semi-Clear Carbon Fiber Sheet Vinyl Decal



2009 2.5s with Takeda sri, Stillen front strut brace, 6k HIDs, black matrix depo tails, glossy black roof vinyl, LED drls., Plastidipped oem bumper, BrakeMotive package
----
future mods: lowering springs, Racingline or Stillen rear sway bar, 4 channel amp, catback exhaust, 2JR pulley swap

already ahead of ya man, check the generic photoshop thread, I already asked of it
but I just tried to tackle it on my black 3rd gen two days ago but vinyl was harder than I thought lol anyway here was how far I got with flat black vinyl on glossy black.. it looked so good!



it looks amazing with flat black as soon as my new vinyl arrives Ill be putting it back on!

Anyways I did alot of searching for flat black roofs on black cars and these were what I found since its not too common.. hope this helps!
