Default Plasti-Dip Roof Black / Paint / Vinyl Wrap?

I thought it would be nice or "cool" to update the look on the Ti a little bit by making the roof Black.

Things I am considering are Plasti-Dip if I can find a shiny black gloss one, vinyl wrap or painting it.

What do you guys think?

Plasti dip first. If you like it, remove and carbon wrap or paint it proper

I'd probably paint it proper if I like it. I'd really like it shiny, glossy black. I am not keen on the carbon fibre wrap thing.

I might try vinyl wrap since it is also reversible.

Personally I would vote for the carbon vehicle wraps. They are convenient and are super easy to install on your own. Whenever you donít need that you can easily peel them off! Just watch some video tutorials and you would know the entire process.
