Because of the extreme heat in the car, I am going to paint the roof.

Does anyone know where I can find my paint code on the car?

Also a good place to purchase some color matched paint?
(with flexible additive)

I am going to paint it the same as the body panels, but
adding some Insuladd ceramic microspheres to help reflect the heat.

Insuladd.com :: 1 Gallon Kit of Insuladd by Eden Pure

Probably using a roller rather than spray.

Our Carrabbas has all kinds of vegetation on its roof to make it look pretty. Just sayin.

I should have shot my roof yesterday. I painted my mirror caps and mixed too much paint. Now I have a green surfboard and some green iron lawn furniture too trying to waste the paint.

THAT is an AWESOME camouflage smart. I should get ahold of some that turf and do that to mine for hunting season.

I don't understand all the effort, just to block the UV. Go to Walmart, spend $7 on a large windshield sunshade, cut to fit the roof opening, insert, close shade and drive away cool. Nice part about this mod is, it comes right out for the cooler seasons. If you get the big screen, you'll even have a spare left after cutting to fit. Dave

Once your roof has crazed, things will suddenly become clearer and you will fully understand all the effort.
