Howdy all,
Big fan of the white roof mini and was just wondering how far do most people take the white? Do they finish the white inside the rain gutter where it meets the roof or pain the inside and outside gutter as well?

Cheers
Simon

yeah, normally body colour runs up the outside of the gutter, the roof colour runs up the inside

Thanks guys, was thinking of using vinyl wrap but that'd be hard to do on the inside of the gutter.

White outside of the gutters look terrible in my opinion. I have seen a couple cars with it done and does not look any good.

Body colour outside and white inside only is the way to go and the way the factory did it on cars with factory white roofs.

you can do it with a wrap, just go down to the edges of the roof itself and leave the gutter body colour, people will only notice if they go and look, and they'll say "woo, cool, it's a wrap instead of painted, that's a good idea!"
