Bought some ViVViD vinyl and a toolkit from Amazon and started doing some vinyl on my 2016 VT with Pano roof. I used some gloss black vinyl to cover the roof line to make sort of a cap on the top that blends with the glass.

Also used some carbon fiber vinyl for the back window. Note: Probably not quite legal.

I did a few pieces and overlapped them. I found that overlapping is almost unnoticeable even with a texture like the carbon fiber. I will probably end up redoing the roof cap again anyway after I wrap the rest of the car. I am thinking about matte gray. I actually didn’t watch tutorial videos. This was mostly about just exploring on my own. I plan to watch some videos before wrapping the whole car and compare the guidance to my experiences.

10 out of 10, will never plastidip again!

So I decided not to go with the gray for now and got some more vinyl to experiment with. I am actually going to try a smoked clear vinyl (actually intended for tinting headlights/taillights) over the orange so it will still have the character of the orange but will also be very distinctly different at the same time.

It's pretty cool how it looks very different depending on where the light source is. At night time the smoked part looks very dark except for when street lights hit it. When I get the whole car done I might set up a GoPro or have a friend record some passes by the camera to try to show the color shift.
