    do a carbon fibre layup on top of your metal shouldnt be too hard to do if ya have done cf work before. I was thinking of doing a similar thing the other day but come up with something a bit more unique

    the roof is part of the main shell so there is no replacement part however the are firms that do carbon wraping in a sense check it out i think the site is carbon-skin.com or something similar its very high quality stuff and looks good.

    hope this helps

    there would be an awful lot of work involved to replace the roof with a carbon fibre panel, as said, a decent carbon wrap if your best bet

    it would be cheaper finding somewhere that does a really genuine looking carbon print vinyl wrap

    i think £280 will just be that 3M Vinyl Wrap!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
