Just ordered a silver trunk lid off of eBay to replace my hail damaged one. Looks like I've decided to keep it ... it's too young for it's untimely demise. Anyone know where I can find a silver hood?

You might want to try Norms Fiberglass he sometimes has take offs from customers cars .Riteway Auto Parts 855 895 9803 ext. 940400 has a listing for a silver one in "nice condition " I have a couple more places to look

Good idea on Norm's ... hadn't thought of that. Called Riteway already ... they don't have any Solstice parts. Not sure why that comes up on a part search.

Pushed the Solstice out of the corner and took it off of the dollies. Pulled the cover off and it saw the light of day for the first time since Thanksgiving weekend. A quick once over with the duster and it looks just as good as when I stored it away. Now it is off to my brother-in-law to touch up the passenger door bottom and front lower quarter panel that I damaged in October. It should be good as new in a couple of weeks. He is also going to touch-up the ding in the deck lid from the PO.
I put the '08 Grand Prix (winter DD) on the dollies and pushed it into the corner. Wow, that takes up a whole lot more room.

Installed my new-to-me trunk lid. It's got one of those OnStar antennas on it, so I guess I'll just leave that unconnected since my car didn't come with that option. Oh, well ...

Got my new to me tail lights today. Easy repair job ... off with the old, hail damaged ones, on with the new.

So that’s trunk lid and tail lights so far. Still searching for a silver hood ...

Vac cleaned the inside, did the windows and detailed the shiny stuff. Then took her for a ride.
