Default Blacked Out Mustang Roof

Tomorrow morning I'm going to look at/purchase a White 2011. I'm pretty excited because I actually like the pearl white color. Besides I'm getting a fantastic deal on it. I've always admired how this car looked and sounded and I know he probably has the glass roof (mine wont) so is it possible to get the roof painted/blacked out so it "looks" like the one in this video? Thanks.

Yes you can, check out the Boss 302 performance white. I looked through some of my pics but didn't have a good one of the roof to post.

Yep, you sure can. You can get it painted or just wrap it in vinyl. I've always been a fan of a black roof on a white car.

Thinking about the same thing myself. I will go the vinyl route, not permanent.

Vinyl is the way to go. Find a place that does vehicle wraps in your area. See what different materials they have. They can laminate the vinyl to give it either a matte or high gloss finish. Won't cost more than a $200 to get it done. I'm thinking of doing mine in the black but with a "ghost" image of the mustang logo. I can print it here at my office and install, so it won't be very expensive for me

That was my car in the video. It's actually vinyl. I had the local vinyl/tint shop do it for about $100... they also did the spear stripes on that hood.

It looks great. I get a lot of compliments. In fact, I loved the black roof so much, I got it on the 5.0 too.

Some cellphone pics of the roof:

If you want the glass look, I'm pretty sure that you can have a glass roof installed on your car. They're pretty expensive though.

Great looking ride. I know the glass roof option is expensive, but I have glass on mine and it's really nice. I really have no complaints about it at all.

Not to hijack the thread but I thought this would be a good place to get some feedback. I'm toying with the idea of a gloss vinyl wrap on the roof of my 08 GT/CS. I recently had the decklid done in matte vinyl. Should I do it or would I be crossing that line?
