Got the roof wrapped! Let me know what you guys think! I did it mainly so in case there is bird sh*t up there and I can't see it, it will not eat away my paint.

Glad to see someone else appreciates this look. I also did it to my Civic Si lol.

After putting them on, I feel like they are a little too bulky so I ordered the low profile ones.
