    I dig the flake. Need a full shot of the car too. Looks killer. It's your roof, do what you think needs done.

    I think the flake is subtle and doing the roof would be overkill. Looks sharp as hell as is. Nice.

    Is the car a wild or mild custom??? Need a full pic. That flake looks awesome and I would love to see that on the roof but it might be overkill in some eyes.

    Sweet, purple on purple rules. Gives it the lowrider feel. Show us a full pick and well give you our opinion on the roof.

    When or if it stops raining,I will pull her out and get some full car pics .......for now I think the roof will remain as is...it is a large canvas and requires lots of thought. Lowlidx50

    That is a very nice touch, agree with above roof being so big may be too in ya face. Love to see those pics of the rest of the car when you can!

    Ohh Do the roof haha It looks great in a full picture. Its actually mellow flake from the picture where your 10ft away so I dont think doing the roof would be to drastic. Either way you have one sweet ride

    I think it looks good, but work on the alignment of that front bumper! :)

    Looks awesome, I say panel the roof in flake with some subtle purple kandy fades.

    I'd flake the roof, but...
    with silver to break up the purple. It will probably help set the chrome off to.
    Good Luck,
