I did not remove the ugly roof strips, instead plati-dipped them. I was very happy with the results and it blended well with my car.

Will someone link us to this tape solution, and also to the type of plastidip used in the roof painting. Thank you in advance.

Trimbrite IS blackout tape. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/slc-t9005

The plastidip is just regular black plastidip from Lowe's/Home Depot. http://www.lowes.com/pd_42849-61158-...dip&facetInfo=
