Hey their toutlnone,

The roll bar itself is actually structurally welded to the uni-body of the car. Did you damage the paint, or want to change the color, or what are you wanting to do to it?

Hey their toutlnone,

Unfortunately like I said, the roll bar is actually an integrated structural part of the body itself which is welded into the sides of the PT so to answer your question, it is literally a part of the body and isn't meant to come off.

How badly was the paint damaged? If you could you post a photo of the damage, I could see if I could better try to help figure a good solution for you.

Depending on the severity of the damage, instead of taking it to a body shop their are mobile services that specialize in bumper, and other related small types of repairs using an air brush to professionally fix the paint, ad clear, color sand and buff the paint out to perfection at a fraction of what a shop will charge for the same type of repair.

If the damage is significant across a good amount of the part, a decent shop will want to re-shoot the entire part which should run ballpark $300.00. On the other hand a mobile service would charge roughly $100.00 - $150.00 for the same type of repair without re-shooting the entire part.

Like I say, if you can post a pic I can give you a better idea of the best route.

Go easy, and I'll catch ya later.
