    Both of mine were cracked when I bought it. Still had factory warranty at that point so both were replaced. I'm sure they will crack again.

    No cracks on my T/A. I read several reviews of the 4th generation f-bodys that hurled insults at the interior quality. One reviewer suggested the engineers went on a lunch break and the janitors designed the interior. One reviewer said "...a $12,000 Daiwoo has a better quality interior and more attention paid to detail". I love the 1985 Sunbird switches for the windows and door locks. I love the 1979 Chevy Citation turn signal switch and heater controls.

    Just have some custom fiberglass door panels made... problem solved!

    Probably will end that way. I bet if you marketed some type of 3m Trim to cover the entire top of the door panel it would sell well! That would pretty much solve the problem.

    I have no cracks yet.. could someone set some pictures up here.. I'd like to see exactly where they're coming through... this could make for good project for me sometime over the winter while she's hybernating in the garage...

    I'm a wizz with fiberglass so I'm thinking a little extra backing for support to the area that keeps cracking for everyone might prevent the flexing that is causing the cracks and better distribute the stress to the center of the panel where a crack is less likely to start.

    If someone can send me a pic of where the crack is in detail.. I could possibly work up a solution and how to prevent - and possibly how to at least stop it from getting worse in the case that it already exists on your cars.
