I had a couple of scratches fixed at a very reputable body shop and it looks
like the glue on the back and even part of the front got hot enough to allow
Only one spot is really noticable and I'm wondering if I should ask them to
It looks like the easiest way would be to heat it up again and push it back
into place and let cool, i.e. use a 2x4 or something to hold it into place.
Any thoughts on any of this?
04 couple, silver/black
Actually, it looks like the heat deformed the front and rear, as well as did
a number on my rubber seals.
I need to know what else might have been ruined on this.
Should the car even be exxposed to 160 degrees?
Baking the parts before assembly is one thing, but now I'm worried the heat
might have damaged rubber seals on mechaniocal parts and elsewhere.
Please someone tell me what I should do here.
I'm going to call a body shop out of town I know about that specializes in

I have no idea what you're talking about. What glue, and on the back
of what? Separation of what? Heat WHAT up again?
The glue on the back covere, where it's glued to the the quarter panels.
I don't think the body shop had anything to do with it, as heat from the sun
can do the same.
I think there was stress at the joints from the factory and the heat just
allowed it to separate.
