I dont know what your working on but there is always a Dollar value involved.

If this is just some plain Jain low value car under 20k when done sand the Bead off seal with some fiberglass filler and call it good. I have seen much worse done.

I'm working on a Euro 320i E30 coupé, Less than 20K for sure, but still a great little classic car

Thanks for your advices, the roof is now way better than it was, it still needs a bit of work, especially since I went a bit too far and got a high spot, but overall it has worked really well !

I will take some pictures next week
