Hi all,

I wrote about this issue some time ago ...

I guess many with coupes will confirm the fact, that targa roof plexiglass eventually starts to show wear, tint starts to fall apart, scratches appear and it looks old and ugly. I heard many water-sand it with 1000, 1500 or 2000 grit sand paper and than polish it.

I tried to fix mine with an external self-adhesive foil (carbon look), BUT the plexiglass started to outgass and bubbles have formed. So it's not a perfect solution. I was thinking of painting it, but I was worried outgassing could lift the paint too. So I didn't go any further with it.

I found out there are some people who painted it and the results seem to be superb. Here's a link to another forum, where I found this thread.

Anyone ever had the top painted, I want to know if the paint will stick to the surface since it's plexiglass?

Just had this procedure done on my black 97 coupe. The paint job was supurb and looked like liquid glass.

A friend of mine done it to his pewter 97, rather his Dad did. He kept the car for about a year after and the paint still looked great.:thumbsup:

why not just get a new roof panel? :huh: painting it seems like a lot of work to me.
