    Anyone got a black roof on a Europa Blue Coupe?

    Hi all, unsure if its the right section but has anyone done this?
    A little bored currently and fancy a change, just wanted to see if it has been done before - although I haven't got the money for immediately having just finished uni. But I can't wait until I get a proper job and can really add some personality to my car.

    Also, found my camera charger again, so he's some recent good quality pics of the motor for the first time in a while (sadly the sun wasn't out!)...

    if you are going to get the roof done black you should have it done in vinyl by a car wrapping company as you can remove it when you go to sell it or just want to but it back blue again

    Cheers pal! It does attract jealousy from some local chavys though that all seem to want to rev the shit out of their rust buckets when they see me. Got to laugh.

    Thanks for those pics will, was worried about whther I could get it to shine like the car but it looks like carl hasn't had an issue with that. lovely looking paintwork

    I think so long as you go vinyl it'll shine nicely. I actually think in that last picture it's leather.

    I'm pretty sure you could get some vinyl yourself and do it. Just take your time to get no bubbles etc.

    That does look like leather, but the other two shine pretty well.

    Just remembered I did this in Forza 3, thinks its a little too far with the vinyl though!
