I like it, headlights blacked out, rear blacked out and the roof blacked out!?!?!
Describe what you did to make it look that cool?

Hey, Thanks! I used headlight covers for the headlights. I used nightshade for the trunk panel and tail lights. Then I used clear coat. I used black 3m vinyl for the roof.

Yes, nicely done and very clean. Reminds me a little of the RKSport Monte Carlo (but without the ground-effects package).

I especially like the blacked-out roof panel, and how it seamlessly flows from windshield to rear window so that it looks like one large, continuous section. It's pretty rare to see this on a car; from the factory at least, I think I've only seen black-roof panels on a couple of late-model Jaguar and Mercedes coupes, and not all cars can do it so smoothly either, so that right there can be a distinctive point of pride.

Thanks, I got the concept from the glass roof look. That of a Mercedes an lexus an as you mentioned. I also credit another monte owner as well for giving me the idea to black the roof on my monte. I will add pictures of their monte when I get a chance. Another thing I removed the sunroof glass to get the wrap between the seam. I'm not proud of how I shaped the vinyl but I used a razor blade so the clearcoat has been compromised with microscopic scratches. I realized it wasn't the best method I was just to excited to see the results. My goal is to remove the vinyl an have the whole car painted with the roof painted in the same manner in the future.
