    Pontiac enthusiast had an article on repairing & pulling the staples that cause the stress. If you find some not cracked yet on ebay or elsewhere, do the staple removal or you'll soon be in the same boat. Really, the epoxy repair is amazingly clean. You have to look close to see the crack after it's fixed.My vote is pull staples & repair. Good luck!!

    Thanks,Ebay has a couple. I hope to find some new ones or aftermarket replacements. I would like to restore to a new look but I may end up getting used and touching up.

    The body shop I normally use did it - johns auto body in imperial, mo ... But any reputable body shop should have a very good idea of what you're talking about when you describe it to them - it's common. As long as they epoxy
