you dont have to paint it there is a film you can buy goes on like tint would, and you can try this before you paint over that original paint

I wish I would have known about the vinyl trim before trying to paint my trim. I still have to do the passanger side so I will probably end up buying this and putting it on the car for both sides :)

painting the roof black is a drift look, is that what you going for?
it's a good idea to try the vinyl to see what its like first

Yeah go for vinyl first i thought about getting my roof done when the Aussie sun fades it beyond a polish.Just don't know about satin black or carbon vinyl if i did go with carbon it might be too try hard so maybe satin black.

DONT do the carbon vinyl, like you said it's a try hard look.

Such a perfect color should not be covered by anything.

with tint it might give a more two-tone look/contrast
