Cover is pointless if your doin it for weight. Proper carbon roof, the roof skin is removed and a carbon one put int place.

We have one on our focus rs, bought a new roof skin from ford to make a mold, then cut the old roof off and fitted the carbon one. Seen a few wrapped and covered ones bit if your going to do it do it properly IMO!

If the car flipped over and landed on the roof, would stuff that it landed on like rocks or curbs or other cars lol not just come straight through and twat u in the head ? or is it as strong as the original metal one for such impacts ? also how much weight did u save approx for fitting it ? or is it just for purely the pimp status lol

The strength is in the A B and C pillars, not the sheet of metal (or carbon) in the middle.....

i mean if like something was to try and puncture it not like just if it flipped, i realise the strength is in the outer frame. i was thinking if u landed on something that was pointed and was to come through the roof in the middle for insanse a metal roof will bend will a carbon roof split of shatter ??
