Re: Dreaded bonnet catch caused roof damage

If the windscreen fits, the roof isn't structurally compromised.

If you want to save the cost of repainting the roof, you can fill the dents, smooth them out and get the roof vinyl wrapped (carbon-fibre is a popular option), this will help mask any residual unevenness.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
