    This task is in WIP, so have to research on this issue.

    I removed Variable Geometry Turbo sticker from my cars Boot Lid from 3M (they used some liquid) and it didnt affected paint of the car. So I think I will go ahead with Radium.

    Update:-

    Planning to make roof Black. What should I use

    1) Glossy Paint
    2) Matt Paint
    3) Glossy Vinyl
    4) Matt Vinyl

    My choice is glossy (confusd in Paint or Vinyl). What are the pros and cons of both?

    Gloss all the way. Don't even think about Matt finish or i'll have to personally come down to Pune and scratch it off from your awesome Abarth variant 90Hp. :p

    Glossy vinyl is better as it would be easier to switch back to white roof in future if you want.

    I too vote for gloss vinyl. In case if you want to switch back, it will be very easy if you use vinyl.

    :eek: :lol

    Dont worry PS I will not use Matt Finish.

    Thank you so much guys for your suggestions.

    Now 2 tasks pending for my car.

    1) Black Glossy Roof
    2) To remove current Abarth sticker which is in Vinyl and make it in High Quality Radium.

    Current Abarth started getting peeled off. :sadblue

    Karan Black Glossy vinyl means the black vinyl on number plates. My cars Abarth Graphics (Strips) are Red Glossy vinyl.

    One more thing to ask, Suppose in future I want to switch back to white roof, and I am trying to remove the vinyl, does this affect the paint quality of roof. Is there any possibility that the paint getting peeled off. :confused.
