Material looks great Vimal, check for any defects in the pattern before using it (duh lol).

im actually kinda scared to handle it too much, lol. should have seen how long it took me to cut open the cardboard wrapping aka "tube" they shipped it in.

so far it looks perfect but i only unrolled 2 feet of it. need a big open table to make sure i dont distort anything.


also i thought up a cheap simple way to protect the epoxy on the roof while it cures. im going to put a 10x10 canopy over the car's midsection and tape up a plastic barrier on all sides and put a little space heater within the canopy to maintain a steady temp all night while it cures. call it my make-shift booth, lol.

im honestly still pretty far from actually doing the project because i need to find a suitable clear coat for the roof, the HOK stuff you recommened is great but man its really pushing my budget on this roof. im not really negligent with my car so i know i'll keep CF parts properly waxed at all times so im willing to sacrifice on the clear coat just a little since the epoxy has UV blockers in it, the clear i eventually use will likely have some sort of UV blockers and to top it off, the sealant i use has UV blockers...Blackfire Wet Diamond Paint Sealant Product Review – Detailed Image

Honestly the resin is more important than the clear Vimal. If you can get past that stage without any hiccups, the clearcoat is a non-issue. The shop used a gallon of clear on my roof, and when you use that much clearcoat OF ANY BRAND...you'll have plenty of protection from the sun. Add in the use of waxes and sealants, and you should be fine even if you choose a less-expensive clear. Look into the PPG Deltron line...that's what Nexson uses (along with a lot of other shops), it should be more than capable to handle this job and should fit your budget better as well. We only used the HOK clear on mine because it was already purchased and was very convenient to use at the time, it was definitely overkill and not necessary.

I didnt like the BB Playbook and I didnt like the Moto Xoom. I might like the HTC Flyer or Sammmy Galaxy Tab 2 when they release.
