Black roof on my '13 Grabber Blue

Looks good. Is it the rough matte or the type that is smooth and just looks matte? I don't like cleaning matte finishes but my buddy has a matte body wrap on his GT2RS and he said it isn't nearly as bad as cleaning the matte paint on his bike.
 
I like it. I was originally going to paint my roof kona blue because I didn't think I'd like the white roof. After I got the car and had a chance to see it in person I liked it a lot. IMO it really sets the car off compared to other Mustangs/cars. Mine's staying white. ;)

Had matte black 3M vinyl put on the roof of my GB today. Early Xmas present. I love it!9y7y3y5u.jpg

I like the white too, it pops nicely.

And the say if you ever saw it...you would even say it did 0-60 in 3.6 seconds.

It is smooth like the stripes. I figure it will be no different than cleaning the stripes. Normal car wash cleaner and a little windex on a microfiber cloth to remove any water spots.

I think it looks really good on the GB. My biggest issue with the GB's was it was so bright in person. This really helps soften it. Nice job Darth.

Thanks...I like the bright but I get what you mean. The all blue made the car look like it is sitting taller than it really does.

I saw pics of a black roof on a SBY and I liked that too.

I am currious how white boss stripes would look on Grabber Blue.

It would look good I think. More subtle like the GB GT500s.

I'd like to see a GB with red or heritage orange stripes. I like the GB GT500s with red stripes.

I actually saw that too and I liked it. I'm going to look into it at some point, it's just at the bottom of my to do list right now.

Nice work.

I saw a Race Red '13 with a black roof today. Looks great to me too. Not sure why Ford didn't go that way for all of the '13 Bosses.

Because us '12 owners are more special.
