Brand new to the community - so brand new, the car isn't actually here yet.. It's on the way (truck transport) from Texas with a clean Carfax and great pics. We got a 2008 Solstice GXP, and are super excited!

Thanks for the great welcome!!!  I'll have to get a few pictures of the new car. It's red with a black interior. Two things we are wondering, one is in regards to a good source to check out the original Monroney (window sticker) label for the car, and the other is how in the world to obtain a replacement part for a car who's brand doesn't exist anymore. LOL...

We are in need of the spring up flap on the driver side for the top (right behind the driver headrest); our's is broken unfortunately...

Cheers, everyone!

Welcome to the forum.  As for that flap, good luck on finding one.  My understanding is that they are made from unobtanium.  There are several people from this forum and a few others talking about printing new flaps. For what it's worth, the Solstice and the Sky use the same flaps, even though the rest of the tulip panel is unique to each brand.

Do you need a flap or do you need the clip that holds the cable to open and close the flap?
