I say wrap the rails in satin black vinyl. That way when u get tired of it you can peel it off. It will look like it came from the factory that way.

Epic!!

Seriously though...OEM+ is maintaining the stock setup whilst subtly modding it, thereby keeping stock look with personal touches. OEM+

OEM+ is subtle mods either based on o.e. equipment or in keeping with the original theme available, e.x. swapping the aluminum headlights for the blacked out ones from the Titanium if you have an SE or something, or swapping over features that were on other models but not available on the car you wanted.

OEM+ isn't just one particular idea, and you can't just walk into a showroom and buy a car that way, you have to shape it into your own vision while not going too outlandishly.

It's simple: wrap the roof in black vinyl, or no? It'd be gloss black, or potentially carbon fiber to match the real stuff on the car.










Regardless I think I'll be getting a quote tomorrow from my manager as I'd likely do this at work with a coworker or two.
i say yes to the wrap. im gonna wrap my roof and whats a good website for stickers? my car needs some more

i say make it a gloss black, make it as close to a black glass look as possible, and paint the drip rails to match. that would make that thing POP! thats my plan on my focus.
