The last time one of my club members checked with a GM dealer about buying a sail panel it was quite expensive. I want to say $700. OUCH! What did you prep your panel with and what paint and clear did you use? You did a fantastic job. Thanks for posting it.

It must take a lot of balls to rip off that panel on your car.

06-01-2008, 01:33 PM
this was my car we did the replacement on. it scared the crap outta me watching us rip the stock top in pieces, but nauty99 had done this to his car before so i was fine with it. this is MUCH better and cheaper doing it yourself than having GM do it...theres a total of about an hour-2 hours at MOST once to take your stock one off and put the new one on, thats if everytihng is already painted and what not. after 8-9 hours of interstate driving its still in place and looks great...just gotta wetsand the pollen out of the clear coat.

MAKE THIS A STICKY!!!

Awesome write up! Just out of curiosity, why did you make a point to leave some of the old adhesive? Is there a possibility of the old stuff eventually wicking up through the new stuff into the panel? Also, do you have a part number or description to make sure I get the right adhesive so it won't bubble up again?

Thanks!

Edit: Also just looked up the panel on GM parts direct. The part number is 10254708 and the current price they quote is $388.61 with $85.49 S/H. I put in my 2002 Firebird. I imagine it would be the same across the board for t-top folks.

kyles2000z
06-01-2008, 11:02 PM
when we removed the top, the adhesive was perfectly intact from where it was put on from the factory. we believe there is somethin in the resin on the factory sail panels that doesnt react well with the adhesive. if you notice, if your bubbling top gets bad enough, the bubbles will pop and constantly ooze a clear oily substabce, a substabce nothing at all like the black adhesive/glue that holds the top down, but it DOES follow the same pattern as the adhesive. the adhesive itself neer even comes close from going through the fiberglass panel, its something in the sail panel itself that reacts bad with this adhesive and bubbles up.

BigE
06-01-2008, 11:22 PM
So how do you prevent it from happening again? Did you coat the underside of the sail panel with something?

Thanks

You use a different adhesive.

Nauty99SS
06-02-2008, 06:26 AM
yes, go down to your local windshield install shop (NOT your local chevy or pontiac dealer) and buy 2 tubes of cold adhesive . we done mine 2 plus years ago and it still looks great ! as for leaving a little on the car it acts as as base for the other to bond too.

could the old adhesive come up through the new adhesive?

Nauty99SS
06-03-2008, 06:30 PM
the old adhesive , im guessing, had a reaction whith something in the old panal,the back is dry as dust , like stated before mine has been on for a couple of years now and still looks great .will it do the same ? i don't know , only time will tell. if you want to remove all the old adhesive i'm sure it will be fine too, but the old is no longer touching the panal.i hope this awnsers you question.:nod:

found mine on ebay , got lucky , 138.00 total . can't find them on there anymore. bitch at gm and they should give you a deal on just the panal . or find someone at a body shop to buy it for you at wholesale . gm offered me the panal for like 270.00.

ponchoV8
06-06-2008, 09:57 PM
I think an alternative, if some company had the resources to do so, would be to make a cap/cover that completely goes over the factory sail panel....maybe make it out of plastic or aluminum or whatever. Perhaps attaching with some kind of strong 3M tape or some other form adhesive, rather than having to go thru the hassle ripping off the old bubbled sail panel and so forth. They could even maybe make this cover already prepainted or a carbon fiber print or whatever. I bet this cover would sell well.

I just recently noticed the bubbles on my '02 T/A's panel and I just bought this car in March.:mad:

Nauty99SS
06-07-2008, 09:56 AM
it would sit to high , wouldn't blend if you will with the t-tops and back glass . only one way . rip it off !!

ponchoV8
06-07-2008, 06:12 PM
I believe it depends on how thick the material used. A sheet of thin gauge aluminum might work. There is plenty of clearance to hide additional thickness in the huge gaps for the hatch glass and where the sail panel forms a gap by the top of the rear quarters. I would think the only major problem area would be where the T-tops rest on the sail panel itself. Wishful thinking I guess. If I had the means I would so attempt this.

Yours came out nicely BTW.

Mine's a hardtop (and it looks like hell at 8 years and 125K miles of living outside in the sun all day in the parking lot at work)...but you made me a LOT LESS afraid to try this. New hardtop panel from GM is $453.92...not too bad I guess.

07-17-2008, 09:22 PM
I am supprised that it's a urethane caulk rather than an epoxy glue under there. Most likeley the culprit is release agents from the modling process that got trapped under the paint. You can fix it how it is outlined by the OP, or I'd imagine you could strip it and repaint it. Either way great job!:chug:

When replacing the top on a hard top does the windshield need to come out? And is the new panels fiberglass or something else?

we tried sanding ,but you could see the oily stuff just ooze out . so no way strip and paint will work

it has 6 or 8 screws and some double sided tape holding it down , reinstall before you install the panal, that way you don't get the panal to close top the t-tops

if you can get something mega-sharp and work your way around the panal and cut the caulk ..maybe , all i can say would be take your time and good luck

I had a hardtop and i now have t-tops thanks to the conversion. Id very much like to have a t-top sail panel now so i can get a real nice defined line for the cut we made for the roof. Is it possible to do this since i converted? How much does it cost? Id gladly drive up to SC for someone to do it for me :)

Also how much does the sail panel cost?

If you go to the gmpartsdirect online catalog, you can find the PN's and then you can also see GM list pricing as well as the GMPD pricing...they usually charge a lot for shipping...but "their" pricing should be comparable to what you can get from a dealer if you're friendly with the parts guy.

Does anybody besides me think that would the perfect time to add a permanantly mounted satellite antenna to the sail panel? I am going to replace my sail panel sometime around the first of year and am seriously thinking adding the antenna to it. Of course I would use one from a corvette due to the fact they are a little more of a lower profile. Has anybody done this yet?

Hey guys, found this tread and thought I should reply. Dealers still do these roof swaps under warranty. In fact I know a hard top V6 car getting one tomorrow. Service and body shop managers can and still do these replacements under good will sign offs if they feel you are good customers. Deal is you have to request it. Underline you have to request it.

Reliablevetteman
06-19-2009, 11:38 PM
Works at any delaer if you request it. Go to the service or body shop and request the repair. This is the crucial part, you have to request it from GM. The warranty period has expired for most f bodies on the roof campaign but managers have the ability to sign off on repairs if they feel you are a good customer. All I can say is these are still done all the time and it still surprises me on the cars they are willing to do it on. Hint. Be very nice, it will go a long way.

If it is a miracle then praise the gods of fantasy island in the land of BS. Everytime I think this campaign is done I get another run of roofs to replace. Also still doing the c5 coupe rear hatch replacements under warranty for bubbles. Just thought people would like to know their is hope.

I am replacing my passenger side quarter panel on my 02. I have to remove that panel to get to some of the seams and spot welds. Is there anyway to get it off without destroying it?

i went to a junk yard today and got a nice sail panel 50 bucks the junk yard dude used an iron that they use to remove glass he heated it and i peeled it off. clean with naptha and replace with pro grip

has anybody thought of mounting a satelite antenna to the panel before attaching the new panel? I am thinking about doing that seeing I have to replace my sail panel and just wondered if anybody else has done it yet?

I second that.

Where are the names and numbers vetteman?

I have been told to go pound sand by a HUGE Chevy dealer and a Pontiac dealer, despite having a claim # and pre-approval from Government Motors.

So do tell...where is this place?



And to the OP, thanks man, you have balls of brass to do this and you have given many hope for this ridiculous problem which plagues our most cherished.

Just got word on the first installed CF piece...

"Just finished install today. turned out even better than I had hoped - I was concerned because mine is a 35th LE that used to have a red sail panel... this one looks much better. Fit was really good for aftermarket. Was worth the wait. Thanks.

PS Didnt take pics yet because its kinda dark and you cant see the fiber. You want any pictures of it installed?"
