how deep are the scratches? As for the faded paint it should be easy, however i dont have a polisher, instead i would be doing polish by hand. If you need help, shoot me a PM.

Send me a pic. As well, I wouldn't wet sand anything without a paint thickness gauge. Some of the clears these days are dreadfully thin. Have a brand new S4 in my shop with readings under 100 on the trunklid. Scary thin.

Doesn't the Yakima racks come with stick on plastic that you can put on your paint to protect it from rubbing?

I'm not sure if there's any vinyl shops or places that do PPF that can sell you a small sheet that you can cut to size and stick on to where the roof rack will be placed to prevent it from happening again.

I'd say bring it by Ken's shop as well. Have him give you an expert opinion.

Out of storage? You mean a time machine? Looks like its in nice shape. We'd need to see it to give you an accurate quote. Single stage polish would be approx $325. Two stage would be around $495.
