Oh man fail. I was thinking about putting a vinyl on my hood to try to hide some of the imperfections. I was hoping this DIY would give me the confidence to try it but after seeing that... maybe I should go a different route.

My hood. My car is already all black so if I did the roof I would have to something other than a dark color. I don't know how a lighter color roof would look on a black car, could be cool. Probably won't try it anytime soon.

I think the comments are mainly for the funniness of the entire situation, not so much that it failed.
