thanks for posting Chip. I wonder with all of the issues and delays on the carbon fiber roof panels if they in fact are still the supplier. Unfortunately the article did not discuss the transparent panel as well.

John; Did you happen to hear who makes the clear top?
The Lexan top is made by Lexamar (Magna International)

This is a dated piece, but I found it interesting none the less and a good read:http://plasancarbon.com/gm-is-first-automaker-to-use-class-a-cfrp-parts-from-new-pressure-press-technology
Recall that article from 2013, interesting new manufacturing process. Also recall a comment about the vendor who makes the visible carbon fiber roof, if it does not meet the required quality standards, it can be used as a painted roof. Assume the vendor only gets paid for the lower cost panels if that occurs! Real incentive to make the visible carbon fiber roof meet required quality!
