Default 08-14 WRX/STI Used 3M Clear Bra To Protect Roof From Being Scratched By OEM Cross Bar

Saw my cross bars scratching up my paint so I used 3M clear bra to hopefully prevent any more scratches from the oem roof rack. Hope this helps someone.

or they should've just included precut film paint protection.

anyways just a little tip to get a perfect trace, use a marker and lay it against the feet of the crossbar and trace it around.
