    It could be he is seeing the bubbles on the panel? This is caused by the glue that was used. There are several topics on this issue in varous forums.

    true, it's a classic ls1 issue. Depending on how much you bitch, you should be able to get that section repainted by the dealer. Only that section is known for it. the rest of the car should be straight.

    LOL! That is not a recall, it's a TSB. Most dealerships don't give a crap cause all these cars are out of warranty. Good luck trying to get that fixed. Costs anywhere from $800-$1,100 to get fixed out of pocket. Buyer beware.

    That's cool. Just if I were that guy lookin to buy that car I wouldn't bank on GM fixing it for free. There's a thirty somethin page thread on LS1 Tech.com about alot of people pissed off cause GM won't fix this for them.
