View Full Version : Detailer or body shop to fix this?

07-12-2014, 06:46 AM

My whispbars damaged my roof after only being on 2 weeks. I am working a claim with Yakima, who is requesting 2 quotes. The marring is on all 4 spots where the mounting feet touched the roof.
My questions for this local group is should I be speaking to a body shop or detail shop? Any thoughts on how to repair? Any local recommendationss in the Boulder/Lafayette area?

For background:
I rode around for 2 week with whispbars on my roof, and when I took them off to clean them (and apply some film) the roof was marred. Half of my roof was also stained yellow (the side that had some 1up USA roof racks).

I used a clay bar, and then scratchX followed up by wax. This took the yellow off the paint. I thought it also took the marring off, but a few days later I noticed it was back.

Here is the yellow:

And here are two shots of what it looks like today. The shots are of opposite corners of the roof, so one was yellow and one was not. (Note, the quarter is there to help the camera focuse on the marring vs the reflection).
