Had nothing to do today,so finally after MONTHS, I decided to go out and block my CF roof.so snapped a few shots after I was finished and washed her up and noticed a some spots I missed,SO KEEP in mind its still not 100% done yet but its alot better than wat it was.
Even tho there are about 5-6 places where the weave had imperfections or where I sanded through the resin before clearing,I still think its decently nice and still unique.*Maybe not show car quality but o'well*Especially since it was my 1st attempt at CF overlay.
what do you guys think? keep it or rip it off and just paint it..
-The back will be covered with the group buy window spoiler also. :rolleye2: ..so itl hide the one big bad spot

The front and even around the sunroof looks alright, but the sides and back are horrible.

I wouldnt have that on my car, and my cars a POS.

If it was done perfect, it would be nice assuming you have a CF roof and trunk. But its kinda ricey to lay CF over the stock, making it heavier than before.

Keep trying to wetsand/buff it until you've done your best, and if it's not up to your standards redo it. I really recommend doing a roof overlay in the summer when it's warm, the cold weather & occasional lack of humidity really mess with the natural curing of the resin & clearcoat.

i think it looks wierd and needs to come off ASAP. this type of stuff is really tough to do and should only be done with loads of practice. I for one would never practice on my own car until i've had 100's of hours of perfected experience. but thats just me
