I don't have any photographs, but this simply looks like the roof took four golf ball hits between the sunroof and windshield. You would see two on each side of the antenna. Another area susceptible of overstress on heavily tracked cars is the sheetmetal under the fuse box. This will cause the plastic fusebox itself to actually crack so check for damage here. -SvB

It just surprised me. Anybody got pictures of this dimple effect?

Steve - still learning

Yep I have a 5 inch long crack leading up my left hand strut housing which stops just short of the fuse box! Pisser!
