Original colour that was cirrus white,or close to it,it has a webasto sun roof that previous owner had refurbished,black ever flex material,I am still considering doing rest of roof in same ,but someone pointed out it would look like a rag top with roof up ?

Er, I believe that was the original intent of the vinyl roof...

Paint looks nice, don't spoil the car with a vinyl roof.

Excellent. Love the creamy-ness of the colour (at least in your pix). Looking forward to more. :mrgreen:

(and good choice to leave the vinyl off . . . :wink: )
