    Found a sail panel

    I found a 94 ttop camaro in the junkyard and I was wondering if the sail panel would fit to my 02 trans am, if so how do I get this off? can I get just the panel or do I have to cut the whole roof off?

    I would use a cable saw take the divider out and fish the cable saw threw the center and carefully saw away. This is the only way I've heard to do this with results and not breaking it

    also i'm pretty sure it would fit no problem the only thing they really changed in between the 93-97 to 98-02 trans ams was the front clip (i.e. front bumper cover, fenders, hood, and headlights), and tail lights and of course i'm not talking about any other parts like drive train just body.

    This is no doubt the best way to retrieve it.

    Dude, I just got mine paid for by GM, they ordered the part and did all the work, mine is an 01 with 70K + miles, all i had to do was call the pontiac costumer service line and complain and it was taken care of.
