Noticed some sort of stamping imperfection on the roof of my 5 door right behind the moon roof. Could this possibly be due to moonroof hardware whelded to underside? Anoyone else notice this large (about 9 inches) "wavy" section?

i have an SEL sedan and a sun roof but no imperfections at all on the roof.
Yes, same with other sedans I have seen locally. However given that the tooling is different for 5 doors and at least around here in Charlotte, there are not a lot of 5 door moonroof cars, I am not sure if it is just mine or a bigger problem.

Hi, perhaps a photo illustrating what you're on about might help?

Will give it a try but is really difficult to see unless you "Chickenhead" and follow reflections.

Wow...after several photos in various lighting conditions, there is no way a photo can show the issue. Maybe a movie will illustrate it better...when I have time.

My yellow hatch with moonroof roof is smooth as can be. perfect IMO.
When I polish my hood, it is a little weak in some areas. So I cannot push down hard at all on it or it might buckle, so it seems. that is the only area I note some odd sort of stuff on the sheeetmetal.
(i remember an aluminum hood on a Mustang at the dealer, Jeez it was soft.)
