I’m wondering if
you can be of any help?
I have the paint / bubble problem on 3 of my 7 GMMG 4th Gen Camaro’s & TA’s
Bulletin # 03-08-98-001A
I’ve been asking every dealer in the area if they can help me out & I am not having any luck.
Is there any chance
you could assist or point me in the right direction?

You're not going to like my answer......
We stopped covering the issue about 2 years ago -
I'm attaching a copy of the note I just rec'd from
our Quality Manager -
I know that it's near impossible to find the Non-T-top roof panel - the 'basket handle" --
I believe, may still be available
via some dealerships.......
feel your pain - as our Historic Fleet is suffering the same fate.........
Scott: No is the only answer available.
Sanding and repainting will not prevent it from
It is the migration of the urethane adhesive used to attach the roof and deck lid.
The only corrected identified
in the bulletin was to replace the panel.
Unfortunately there are not any panels left.
There may be some roof bow at
a few dealerships but the deck lids have been gone for some time
unless someone has come up with one from the aftermarket.
