    No no no no no no NO lol.

    Black roof may work, but the pillers as well will just look too much IMO. Makes it look like a convertible lol.

    not a fan of it while the pillars are black, but perhaps just the roof upto the rain strips would look good.

    It looks like a bodged cut and shut.

    Red coupe with roof damage.

    Taken the roof off a black/dark grey coupe and stuck them together.
