I just broke the poll tie. Just do it already and get it over with. It's not like you can't remove it if you don't like it. I'm not too big on the CF vinyl for the roof, because who's really drive around in a Focus with a CF roof? Go straight gloss black.

So only EVO's have real carbon fiber roof's, huh? If its made I can bond it on & it gets rid of the sun roof & excess weight too.

its his decision to get rid of a sunroof or not, which he does not have on the car, so that makes absolutely no difference. I personally would much rather have a sunroof on this car than sacrifice it for minimal weight gains. If I want a true sports car Ill buy an ST. Or a base mustang and start from there

Im also pretty sure bonding a CF roof is a lot more expensive than a vinyl wrap, the latter which can ultimately be removed should he change his mind later

Finally getting back to this little poll.

It still irks me that due to the design of the roof, wrapping it in black will not create a straight line from the windshield to back window. I don't like the fact that the A- and C-pillars come up and then curve in above the windows slightly before reaching the black roof rails.

Also coupled with the horrible weather we have currently and how much on my plate wrapping the roof is out for now. Thanks for all of your inputs though!

Looks better with the black rails.

Adds some contrast to the massive yellow expanse of the roof.

Believe it or not, that was yet another idea I pondered, after seeing the Cosworth Focus from SEMA 2012.

So many ideas, so little time.
