    Hmmm. Old thread. I still have the replacement painted roof panel setting in my garage awaiting installation. Might have to actually get it done this winter.

    thankfulley my dealer gave me a replacement 10-11 years ago ( at time could barley see problem) I stored it unopened in the top of my shop and it /I hope is still there. as stated box is unopened, hope it is not a empty box. I may repair it later if problem get worse, but untill then I an't going to.
    Just thanks to a great dealer,Johnny

    My wifes SS has that issue. Been that way for years. I have no plans to fix it at this time since it's her daily driver. I figure I'll fix it and a week later some idiot would total the car anyway. That's my luck. So I leave it as is. Doesn't really bother me and my wife couldn't care less.
    At some point we might get her a mini to squirt around in, at which point I'd retire her SS from daily use. Then I might think about fixing a few things.

    Not likely but there could be some foreign substance in the metal itself causing the hood paint to bubble.

    Mostly it happens to the plasic componets where GM used a caustic adhesive to join panels, like the sail, and spoilers.

    I had mine replaced under warranty years ago when the car was out of warranty. Not without some fighting tho.

If it were just a matter of removing mine and putting it back on with urethane I would have done it.
    was this something that happens to a certain year? Overheard a guy talking about his problem with this at Carlisle and he was saying he had traced it back to a bad batch of adhesive that was used, did not catch his year but he was pretty pissed about it...knock on wood I don't have any issue like this

    I'm not sure that I have seen model year info for this issue. If there is a difference, then definitely the later model year cars have the problem as our roof panel literally bleeds on a hot day.

    . Didn't realize this thread was this old at the start I thought you just had this problem after much more reading seems to be the later models are more prone to this..boy it's been a long week I think I need to shut down for the night still another day of work left....lol

    thankfully this has not happened yet. my buddy has this on his z28 and was about to get it repainted, and thankfully i came across this, i didnt want him to spend his money just to turn around and get screwed bc gm switched adhesives.

    i personally havent seen this issue on anything 98 and older mines a 98 no issues whatsoever. my brother has an 02 ws6 with 78k and his has mega acne (thats what i call it) he had it sanded and repainted just to see and it was good for maybe a week. wasnt expecting a fix but the paint is no longer scratched on the sail panel haha. jeff start ripping that panel off id like to see the destruction involved!!

    May get to it over the winter. My focus will probably be on the Cutlass restoration -- need to get going on that one again.
