    So, whilst inspecting the PPF install - I came across something peculiar. I looks like there's a piece of trim missing on the roof (both sides, see below) - asked the shop about it and they said there wasn't anything there when I brought it in. We checked another Raptor they had in there - same thing. There's a screw hole though... anyone else have any input on this? Is yours this way too? If there's not going to be any trim, why not cap the screw hole Ford? [please excuse the dust, I can't wash her for 2 weeks]

    That's not a screw hole, there should be a rivet there.

    Roger, thanks. Strange that both mine and the other Raptor in there both have the exposed holes.

    The hole is the rivet.

    Venerous...that is the rivet head that you are looking at. Factory correct and will not leak. Go to the hardware store and look at some rivets.

    No worries.

    Be happy that length of trim is missing. I had problem with both of my last 2 Tacomas trim falling off.

    @Mk1 Caddy @dmb359 @wheelman55 & everyone else - yeah, I might have been a little premature in asking as I found another thread regarding this topic and a little investigation revealed the same info. My apologies and thank you for your help. Just a small freak-out. Carry on.

    I bought mine used and my first thought was that the previous owner cut it off. After my experiences with them, I was actually happy. It was only later that I realized Ford got it right from the get go. So no worries!
