    Default passenger door fitment on 2008

    The inside panel on the passenger door of my 2008 convertible does not fit correctly against the instrument panel. The dealer said I might have to live with it. The panel 'stands proud' of the dash where the door and dash meet. I am taking it back for another look next week, but was curious if someone had suggestions as to the cause and solution for this. I have looked at many C6 Corvettes and have not come across one with as large a misfit as mine. I know there are male and female pins that hold the panel in place. I am guessing these may have slipped or become worn and are causing this. Any help is appreciated!!!

    Hi there,

    The panel should be removed and checked for warpage.

    Accept it?? I DONT THINK SO!

    Fit has been exceptional on interior components.

    How much did you pay for your clear bra???? I want/need something BAD for my Vette....the bugs in Texas are nearly as big as Texas....not to mention rock chips. I was cleaning my car last week and found SIX little rock chips.....now I need some touch up paint in a bad way....I was gonna order a new bra (for my car ) till I found out that 3M makes something thats clear....I saw it on a thread, but not where to find it or who does it....how much should I expect to pay....that's something else I've found....stigma....if ya got a Vette, you have a pocket full of cash to blow.... I hate being taken advantage of....

    I'll PM you Junkies contact info .I'm really not sure because he actually took delivery of my 08 when it was new.(thats how much I trust him).He did several modifications I wanted done and they we're grouped together.It is a 3m and I love it and it's already saved some serious chips.It has not discolored at all .
