  8. Cabrio Roof Bars, how to dis-assemble?

    Hi All, As with most cabrio roof bars I've seen - mine too have corrosion near the ends. Is it possible to dis-assemble them to remove the metal outer skin from the reset of the structure, so I can safely get it cleaned up, welded, painted etc. ? Thanks in advance Regards
