cleaning the carbon fiber roof

Do you guys just wash and wax the roof like the rest of the car or do you do something different?

I'm assuming you have the carbon roof so yes just wash and wax like any other panel of the car. It has a clear coat over it.

That is what I thought but just wanted to make sure. I put sealant on my last car. I don't think the roof will need it on this car though.

Treat the CF roof as you would any other painted (clear coat) panel on the car.

The roof with a couple of coats of wax or sealant really sets it off
