    Default Rust spots on the roof...

    I recently noticed some rust spots on top of the roof of my Mazda 3 there are few of them all fairly small for now in form of paint bubbles. Pretty sure it's from bird sh1t that got left on too long.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    probably rock chips that landed on the roof and punctured the paint. youd have to leave bird poop there for a long ass time before it breaks through the clear then the paint lol

    I don't think so, there are no chips.

    Read your post, doubt my car will get covered.

    Looks like I'll need to get the roof repainted

    That's not bad for a dealership. I know a guy/business that will do it for half of that. Sill that's a couple hundred that I'd rather spend elsewhere.
