    Vinyl sheet on the roof

    I have a silver Astra and i've seen a few people have done a sheet of vinyl on the roof,

    is there any perticular stuff i should get also whats the best way to apply it without getting bubbling cause i know it can be a bitch.

    Just get decent stuff from a signage place....ideally one that's UV stable so it does'nt fade

    As for application, spray water on the roof, and put vinyl on, then use squeedgee to flatten vinyl onto car, while pushing out water/bubbles

    thats what i thought but he seems to think black cars have slightly thicker roofs to withstand the heat
