    Like the title says are there any usual faults to look for when buying a WS6 other than cracked door panels?

    Be sure to check the sail panel for signs of bubbling. This is due to
    the factory adhesive coming through the paint finish and although
    i seem to have been lucky i understand the only way to correct
    is to either get a GM replacement ( good luck with that) Or perhaps
    a 6 litereater replacement panel.

    Sanding, prepping and re-painting will not work as it continues to do it's
    work beneath the surface!!

    Power window motors can be very sluggish and a fix can be had from a well known
    company who supply a fix.... not sure if they are a sponsor here so i won't name them,
    but i expect you'll discover them!

    There is other stuff so i expect others will chime in.

    If i wasn't using my phone I'd give a direct link.

    Look for the General Info sticky in this section. Click on it you will see a few threads about purchasing f bodies and some other info that should help.

    IIRC the "chicken pox" effects 99'< cars maybe 00<. Same goes with the door panels.

    Passenger window motor- every f body has this problem. There is a $40 fix and is simple to do.

    98's are the only yr that the water temp gauge works. Also are suseptable to oil pump issues.

    There is more but like I said look for the stickies and they will provide more.

    Make sure it's a real WS6, don't ask me how I know to ask . Check the door tag. Also check if the VIN on the door tag matches the VIN on the dash.
