Recommendation for Vinyl Shop

Can anyone give me a recommendation for a Pittsburgh area shop to apply vinyl to the roof of my Countryman?

I'm thinking about gloss black, but not as glossy as a patent leather. I really don't want to try it myself with the sunroof, luggage rails, and all the curves on the roof spoiler.

I was just kidding about doing it yourself. Certainly lots of things to work around when doing the whole roof.
I'll bet there's a shop in Morgantown that does vinyl.

Any sign shop in your area should be able to do it. That's usually where company/promo cars get wrapped.

343 Graphix in Belle Vernon did my sunroof vinyl. It's not perfectly cut around the edges, but they were very reasonably priced and it still looks good after a few years.

A friend of mine had his entire car (VW GLI) wrapped at Blackout in Latrobe. http://blackoutempire.com/Home_Page.html They don't have vinyl wraps on their website... but I know they can do them. (They use 3M products i believe.)

I had to leave my car overnight, so just something to consider when you pick a place.
