: Has anyone done BLACK roof?

07-12-12, 05:22 PM
Hey guys quick question.
Iv been looking around and to be honest haven't really seen any silver v's with a black roof. I know a lot of people go with the black wheels/grill and tails but iv never really seen anyone do a vinyl or black roof top before.
I know it looks killer on a lot of other cars, IMO, so I'd like to see what it would look like. Any help would awesome if anyone has seen a pic. Am I the only one that thinks it could look sick?

With tinted windows it would probably look pretty good. Who's good at photoshop around here??

Actually...funny you should ask. I just got back from a week long trip to the coast in South Texas. Cruising back up North, I spotted a silver CTS with a black top (about 1 inch from the edges of the top of the fender to the top of the car). Literally, 2 miles or so down the road, I saw the exact same paint job on a Charger. IMO...the paint scheme looked much better on the Charger. I think the sharper lines of the CTS really doesn't help a two-tone paint job. But the rounded edges of the Charger made it flow a little better.

This is exactly like the one I saw: http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_images/4/617/3789/39041894010_large.jpg

I have it on my silver V. It looks tight.

I haven't seen a V1 with a black roof either, but I can't image it's good for heat..

If you're close enough, you can go take a look and "try it" before you buy it or maybe this was the one you saw?

Now that is hideous. I didn't like the way he went down the front but what really put the nail in the coffin is the fake fender vents. Thank god that's not a V but I really feel sorry for that car.

If done right it could be a good look for the car so the one with just the roof done was the best to me. I like subtle paint schemes though, let the body lines do the talking.
