i like the roof rails wrapped as well. i can see how it will double the install time since you have to make more additional cuts, but it keeps things uniform.

The only time I do not wrap the roof rails are if the owner of the car requests so.

Ah. That would have been cool to do it on your car I actually don't usually get too many modified cars that come by to get vinyl work done. Most are either stock or just lightly modded.

Maybe next time.

I've only done it with cars that have moonroofs (which are body colored, and not glass like sunroofs). It's always an option for those who are getting their roof's wrapped, however, as you can tell from the pictures, all of them opt to have me leave their sunroofs/glass unwrapped.

Some pictures on a 997 GT3 that I wrapped the 3M Di-Noc CF with, on the roof and spoiler element. Let me tell you, it looked hot! Haha.

Can you paint clear gloss on it? For engine cover, will it stand the heat? because my cover my engine cover it bubbles due to heat. I probably did not used the proper adhesive.

[QUOTE=Don Nguyen;10602187]It has a fairly large/high operating temp, so it definitely should be safe on engine covers.

You can probably paint it. However, I am not a painter, so I don't know what types of clear/paint you'd use on materials like this, etc.
