My wife wants the roll bar on her Gen 2 Boxter painted or wrapped to match the body work.
Can anyone advise if this is possible without removing the roll bar . Which is the easier to do paint or wrap.

Thanks

Very tricky to do properly in situ.

I ended up swapping it out for one the correct colour.

Not that difficult to do if you are comfortable with taking the hood off.

Thanks for the photo ,interesting as I thought the whole roll bar would be the same colour. Just wrapping the hoops in the body colour might be achievable
I don't fancy attempting to remove the hood.

I've attached a photo of what we are trying to achieve.

The roll bar is all the same colour, the black bits are the padding
