Why dont you trim them yourself its really not that hard. I have done many roofs and pillers even with some mad builds in and as long as you take your time and use a good glue its easy. Alcantra roofs do look good i did one in a golf not long ago but he wanted a grey so was easy to match the pillar builds.

When i do it i use a contact adesive thats heat resistive cause if you use normal pray glues when the car gets warm it falls off. If your using alcantra then its better to spray it on or could end up with bubbles and lumps where the glue is not even. Other than that its easy just take your time. Find out how much your getting charged for alcantra i might be able to get you a better deal as we get loads in for some jobs.

Sure mate will look into it for you as i am going to be redoing mine soon. Not sure if i want to go down the alcantra route as many people seem to be doing it but it will be black what ever i use so no problems. As for the glue i might even be able to get some for you letr me know when your ready and will sort it.
