So I just install Oem cross bars on my rails
And they wouldn’t slide easily In the rails.
Right after I took cover and screw off the rail they slides in easy but right after 1 inch or so they get tight and won’t slide.
so I had to hit them by hand on both sides to get them going. Doing so they scratched the rail after the cover.

soon I realized there not going to go in without scratches so and Since I had already scratch a bit part of rail so I just tapped away and get them to the dimple marks.
I did had the screws loosen up a bit and try it bit tight still same results. And yes I did install them correctly marked left for driver and right For passengers sides.

So now I have white mark/ lines inside the rails. I did rubbed with cloth and few of the marks or scratches I think they are went away but few still remain.

not that it would hurt but I still like to try an options to hide them or fix them.

Any ideas to remove them?
thanks

Maybe use a touch up paint? Or use a bondo Putty, sand it then paint it but then it migh be a lot of work for something inconspicuous?

I put touch up paint on some of the bigger rock chips on my CRV so the beach air wouldn’t rust them out. No issues.

looks good didnt really had thought about that. just bought it to try it.
let us know how it goes. the color isn't a big deal i'm mainly worried about it chipping off due to weather and being on the roof.
