    Thumbs Down Killer Roof Tile ??

    Hey , had a bit of an incident with a wind swept roof tile hitting my gsi spoiler last night, ive already bought the paint from halfords , but just wanted a few tips on how best to sort out the little dents the bas==rd roof tile caused ! They are not that big just 2mm deep and very annoying.

    and it scratched my rear window ? Tips please ?

    Was thinking of tackling it tomorrow , so any guidance would be much appreciated , cheers guys ,
    Mike

    Get it done properly lawson.
    I've been there at the begining of last year.


    Fixed it myself and had it professionally resprayed.
    You couldn't tell the difference.



    If you can afford the cost, get the body shop to repair the spoiler too, as i eventually had to replace it due to it cracking where i repaired it.
