Paint job

Hi, i'v had my R170 down my mates paint shop at the w/e priming the wheel arches ready for silver/clearcoat. Now I'm thinking of just doing the whole car. But might do the roof and A/C pillers black!!! Maybe tint the glass too. Any of you seen a R170 in Blilliant Silver with a black roof. I'm sure I'v seen one on the net but can't find it again. Thoughts please.

Have you tried to photoshop it to see what it would look like?

It's an interesting idea..but from a distance it almost looks like a rag top version.

I have seen that car in person, it's from the Philippines, what I think he did was just to paint the roof without painting the pillars, to emulate the design of the r172's magic sky, or the popular sky roof you see from hyundai sonatas

Right on. Try also the 3m vinyl gloss black sticker. So you'll see how it looks before painting it.
