Black Top: Yes or No

I have been considering for a couple months now whether or not I want to paint the top roof and hood of my car black. I have seen other members on this forum that have done it to there car and I am really jealous, Lol. I like how it adds some flare and color to the car without looking too over styled. Plus, the hood has some serious stone chips and should be repainted anyways so why not black. The problem is that I also really like the blue and may miss it if I cover it up with black. So, What do you think?

Here are some pictures of the car the way it looks now:

There's one of them. I have you to blame for me even considering this, lol. Yours was the first one I had seen with that design and I have loved it ever since.

Yeah, I forget who it is but he's got part of the hood black which is part of what I am considering. There is also at least one silver car that I have seen on here, but I haven't seen any blue yet.

I voted yes for the roof, but I am on the fence about the hood. If that is what you like I say go for it. Sonic blue and black look awsome together.

As someone who had the roof of their last focus black, I voted yes! Do it with blue flake to match the sonic.

The other option is a wrap (big sticker). Which is far easier to remove if it happens you don't like it after lets say a year.

I don't mind a 2 tone Focus at all. Most that I've seen on here look good.

I like the idea, but IMO I wouldn't paint the hood black. I think it looks better with just the pillars and roof. Would also look good with the black wheels

My vote is for vinyl as well.
I hate to see Mods on a SVT that are hard to undo,be done on a rare Car.
Plus vinyl will be really cheap.
