Anyone have a brand new fabric top put on their solstice and the window start separating before it’s even out of the shop?  My solstice is a 2007 and the factory top I never had that issue. Got a brand new one put on and 2 days after install it’s doing it.

It can happen.  The tops were pretty much all made during the production run, and, depending on how they were stored in the interim, the two-sided tape that was used during the original construction of the top can/may have dried out and lost adhesion.

Mine needed to be repaired within a year of taking delivery, during the summer of 2006.

YMMV.

Oh well then I guess.  Just not sure if I should let them repair a brand new top or demand a new one again.

I seem to remember a couple of other new tops where this has happened recently.
