I apologize if this has been discussed, but it is hard to find in a search. Just today, I realized that the paint marks / flaws / uglies on my roof are actually caused by the forward-most trim panel on the trunk lid rubbing an the top when it is stored. Anyone else seen this? I THINK it will be a simple process to modify the panel to sit closer to the trunk lid.
I’ll share how when I get it solved, but in the meantime, I’m wondering what everyone else is seeing.

Morning MPRCTCL. I'm only spit balling here. Take a look at any movement in the trunk lid sound proofing pad. Or if it is secured properly to the lid. Looks like the most forward section of the pad aligns with the scuffs. I wonder if that's causing the scuffs when the trunk lid closes when stowed.
