bought a sheet of 3M DiNoc and wrapped it myself, well ... with an extra hand from my sister.

Anyone know if a defroster can be built to fit underneath it without it peeling off for the snow we get in the Eastern region? I would hate to scratch the top layer of the carbon fiber.

I would have preferred the satin black (or maybe even a gold to match your wheels) Di-Noc instead of the carbon fiber pattern, but the installation looks good Roger and I'm sure it's an improvement from the "cancer".

more then likely from a crappy windshield install (cutting out the old windows scratches the paint under the window trim on the lip the windows mount too, and quite a few places do not repaint there (or touch up since it is hidden anyways), and the cancer starts from there....



so i would pull those window trims, and make sure it is properly sealed done there; but then again kinda too late though, without respraying the roof though

just use a brush to get the majority of the snow off

as far as making a heater grid underneath it, very possible, BUT by the time you pay for that you might have been able to just recover it again though

if it was different shades of black, i think it'll look more weird than it is now. satin black would look nice if everything is wrapped. i know the carbon "look" sets the color off, but thats what how it looks like even when you have the real carbon. in other words, it's more acceptable to have a different shades of black since it's carbon.

Sun (UV rays) "eats" through the clearcoat over time.

cancer is rust, so being exposed to the elements, and not be properly protected from them (or protective barrier/paint haveing been compromised, as for the OP with a improper windshield install)

If you really want to get technical with me, cars don't get cancer. Period.

Obviously the degradation works in a way that's similar to cancer since it continues to spread once it starts, and if you find anything wrong with this statement or my previous one then please enlighten me oh knowledgeable one.

If you think rusting of the metal body isn't first caused by the degradation of the clearcoat from overexposure to the sun, then you're sadly mistaken. You keep referring to an improper windshield install, even after Roger's told you that it's a random spot that didn't start at the end of the roof as you keep suggesting.

I like how this guy talks like he really knows wtf he's talking about. Cars don't have cancer and I was just saying it like analogy, but here you are telling what is cancer on car and what is not. You didn't even see how my roof looks like and claiming that it had rust?

Seriously. Stop embarrassing yourself.

Looks great, I wish I could do this to the whole top half of my car, my clear coat is starting to bubble. Also, I noticed the tracks in the roof and the seals around your sunroof are looking dull and white, I'm not sure if that's wax buildup or they're just old. What I did on my tracks was use leftover blackout tape that I used on my chrome trim, makes the trim look brand new.

In defense of fries, when most people say their honda has cancer, they mean rust. And usually its on the wheel wells.

This is the first time im hearing clear coat failure referred to as cancer on any car related website.

Lol, you guys are ridiculous. Like children arguing over semantics. I'm sure the point was taken from both sides.

Roger, at least you got rid of the imperfection in a quick and affordable way, and it looks great. Props. In the future you should just overlay it with real CF!
