Hi all,

Just wondering if this had happened to anyone and is it possibly the starshield peeling off with paint on its own or a small object strike while driving?

There appears to me no damage like a dent or anything, but it would seem highly unlikely that the starshield would peel off so suddenly like that.

Thanks,
Oliver

Ok thanks, I took a closer look and do see a couple of really small ones where you said. Ugh first one (and it had to be big) on the front to break through the starshield.

That looks like a crater on the moon.
It may be too expensive to fix than it's
worth.

I would cut around the crater with a razor blade
and touch it up.

touch ups are always pretty obvious. Doing a touch up as you described sounds like a great way to

- put razor blade cuts in the paint
- increase chances of pulling off paint if/when the starshield is removed at a later date

If you're going to fix it, remove the entire piece and replace it.
