    Sail panel fix

    Gonna be back in cali soon and starting on the body work that the bird needs, one problem being my sail panel yay..... Going to pick up a new panel from 6LE but was wondering what glue i should use so that I don't run into the same problem I ran into before with the bleed through from the factory. Also if any one has pics of the CF sail panel installed I'd love to see it. Thanks in advance guys.

    I believe regular urethane will do the trick just fine. Obviously, that's not what GM used.

    I'm a CF fan, also if you don't want the CF look you can always prep and paint it too.

    The piece you will receive will be exactly what you would have received from GM, a FULL REPLACEMENT PANEL. Ours will be a flexlible fiberglass and will have the finish of our other flexible fiberglass parts.) All you need to do is rip off your old one (have fun tearing that beast apart and DESTROY it as retaliation for the pain it is putting you through! In other words, you can use a pry bar, putty knife, whatever you want HOWEVER piano wire or wire saw might be the cleanest and easiest way to remove it), remove any old caulk/glue/adhesive from the metal underneath, apply caulk/adhesive (we recommend Pro Grip, U400 HV Essex (Dow) or 3M Urethane 08690) and stick it on (follow instructions on the adhesive, you might need to clamp the roof on for a drying period)!

    This should help. It's straight from their site.
