    You have a chameleon, correct me if I'm wrong, doesn't that mean it's been painted?
    If not, your lucky, very common problem.

    Mine was garaged also, probably why it isn't bubbling all over but just in a straight line. The glue is still going to release gas, the darker the car, the more heat, the faster it will happen.



    UPDATE!!! I got the guys name and number...even his extension.

    His name is Scott Summers, his number is: (866)790-5700 Ext.- 22482

    Went down today, they took all my info and they will be ordering the parts.

    Remember guys, having him approve it, is half the battle, the other half, is finding the "right" dealer, 'cause even if it's given the green light by Scott, you wanna make sure the dealer you choose, has done this before...you want it to come out right.

    Good Luck!!!

    GM said yes. Manager at dealership told me. No I can warranty that and you didn't buy the car new from us.(Buying a car at 12, I don't think so) Its not a major problem with the F-bodys. I've only seen about 5 of them. It doesn't affect the value of the car.

    The dealer will always give you the run around. He must have ment 5000 f-bodys. And you dont have to buy the car new. It gets fixed under the GM good will. Thats what they call it.

    My girl need a new car and i will be looking else were for a new ride. And unless the roof has been fixed already. This is my last f-body.

    I wanted to thank everyone for this information. I went to Dealer 1 1/2 years ago about this. they said they would only pay 1/2 of the repair. Went back with this information and now they are going to pay all but $200.00 deductable. Only problem I may have is that the NHRA decal for sail panel may no longer be available. Thanks again

    Holy cow! I wish I would have read this post before I posted one of my own. Just washed and waxed my car today and when I got to the roof between the t-tops and rear window, I was like "What the f... is that?" Thought it was rust pits, but now after reading this, I'm taking my car straight to the dealership. 23000 miles and it's falling apart on me.

    Hello,
    Stopped by a Chevy(Elco Chevrolet) and Pontiac(Moore Pontiac) dealer today here in St. Louis, Chevy pushed me off to the Pontiac dealer. Pontiac first said "No" because it had too many miles, then said, no because I was not the origional owner, then said no because it is not "through the sheetmetal".....whatever. That 6 year warranty you guys are talking about is up in 10 days for me and the bird, so I called that 866 number today, hope something goes my way on this one. Thanks for this thread!!! Sail panel looks like chit!

    Hey guys......just wanted to give you an update......I have been monitoring this thread and so I called them today. I talked to GM Customer Service.....they gave me a case number and said "Yes" we know this is a big issue......I go to the dealership tomorrow.....I will keep you posted to see how everything goes. My Z is always garaged and I dont drive it to work....I have a company vehicle so it is out of the sun most of the time.

    Thanks T.

    i think all of you who say "this will be my last gm or f body" are all a bunch of crying baby's i understand that everyone with an f body is probably suffering from this problem and some of you are having a hard time getting it fixed under any kind of warranty or recall, but to insult an amazing car or maker like gm cause your little black sail panel has pen hole size bumps in it, give me a break, im upset about the fact that they couldnt figure out a better way of mounting it than glue, but you know what it was the cheapest and most effective way to get it done, this is how they keep the cost down on there vehicles and how gm makes the most bang for the buck performance cars out there! hands down

    so suck it up and stop crying about spilled milk, drive your car, love it is a fuckin camaro not a rolls royce or lamborghini,

    p.s i do not have a mullet but just love f bodys and gm.
    but i do drink coors light, so...

    I am a body tech by trade, I cut appart and rebuilt cars of all makes/models every day. GM builds some of the better cars and trucks on the road.

    I wont bash any of the other manufacturers but I will say I see some crazy things in the way some of these cars are built and I wonder how they get away with it.
