SLK with carbon roof

Anybody with carbon roof ? Im thinking to try to wrap my roof with carbon fiber but Im not sure how it will looks. My SLK is white and I think about black (http://www.corvetteblogger.com/image.../090613_16.jpg) or transparent carbon fiber.

What do you think ?

The one in the picture looks good, I think black Carbon Fibre on your white car would look really cool! Maybe you could also use it on other parts as well as accent points.

Take the cheap way and start with the C pillars first about $35

Here is better one: https://www.slkworld.com/attachments/...r-img_9880.jpg

I think it looks awesome. I would plasti-dip top, pillars and mirrors in black (be cheaper, easier, last longer, can do gloss or matt). Almost tempted to do this on top of my Iridium Silver 350.

Im not sure that I can wrap the mirrors. First think to try with the roof with black carbon. But Ill wait spring to come because now is too cold and have snow.

Only had my SLK just over a week

Am not sure on the stick on carbon fibre on the roof - it will be good for protection from soft racks when I take surfboards away
