Thanks for the Sail Panels. They look like factory-made accessories! To be honest, we didn't think they would turn out this great ... Great response time! If you need any references on this design please feel [free] to hand out my name. The Pontiac Racing logo looks so good they look like they came directly from Pontiac. Kudos.

Please add me to your reference list. I purchased a set of sail panels for my '88 Formula in March of 2000 and after taking it out of storage last week, I noticed some delaminating of the paint. After emailing Paul and explaining the situation he immediately said he was sorry for the problem and would ship me another set immediately. I received them today, just 3 days after emailing him 'NO CHARGE'. He is great to deal with and I just wish more people selling there products were as great. We could all have better Fieros". Thanks Bob Lesko, Johnson City, NY (rlesko@stny.rr.com)

"I am really impressed with the quality of these panels - they are truly superb. The fit is, if anything, better than the originals. The decklid decal is equally impressive. The only conceivable complaint I can come up with is feelings of guilt over having paid so little - these are a real steal. I will heartily recommend you & your products without reservation. Its been a rare pleasure."

"... I have to let all on the list know how fine the sails finished by Paul McKibben are. I replaced my panels with his replacement panels..and again...A GREAT JOB FOR A REASONABLE PRICE. Don't try to save your money on that item!"

McKibben Sail Panels (QTR Windows) Evaluation Report

"If you own an '85-'88 Fiero notchback it is not a question of if you will need to replace your quarter windows or sail panels, it is a question of when. I own 4 Fieros and the panels are going on three of them. This is because of age from being exposed to extremes of humidity, heat, cold and other environmental factors. They become brittle and often crack. If you are lucky and they don't crack the paint will sometimes flake off the back and of course scratches are common. Car washes really don't help matters either, especially when alcohol based cleaners like Windex are used to clean them. Over the course of a few years, these parts end up looking plain cruddy. So what is the solution??? Paul McKibben of GA. has been manufacturing replacement Fiero sail panels for quite a few months now and I have heard only good things about them. Having acquired one of Paul's panels for evaluation I set out to judge the fit, finish and overall quality. I had the pleasure to evaluate a sail panel with a custom look. The panel is black with a Pegasus logo. However, for those desiring the exact OEM look, Paul also offers panels with SE, & GT logos in addition to clear ones, all black panels and a panel with the "Formula" script on it. So how good are these panels? In one word excellent. We checked the fit in the sail panel frame and the fit was perfect. The graphic image (logo) was sharp and clear and appeared to be heat stamped from the back of the panel. The shine and black color of the panel also matched the original Fiero panel perfectly. Having seen and evaluated Paul McKibben's sail panels first hand, it is easy to notice that the craftsmanship is top notch. Paul has apparently duplicated the original panels perfectly and they are very easy to install. In fact they look so much like the original OEM panels that I doubt if an expert show judge could tell the difference."

"OEM sail panels are now getting harder to find and are expensive. The panels with the GT logo are particularly hard to find. McKibben's sail panels now offer a solution. In short this is an outstanding product at a moderate price. Great job Paul. If there were a best new Fiero product of the year award these parts would certainly be in the running."

McKibben Sail Panels (QTR Windows) Evaluation Report

I have to say that I agree completely! [with Dennis LaGrua] I recently purchased some sail panels and I am very pleased with the end result. Paul had a pair of SE sail panels ready to go and shipped them to me without even receiving payment! He communicated with me well via e-mail and was an overall pleasure to do business with. His prices are extremely fair when compared to buying a whole new sail elsewhere. Installation was straight forward and went smoothly. If you are in need of repairing your cracked panels, please drop Paul an e-mail. He is definetly an asset to the Fiero community!

"Well, spring is here and I finally had a chance to put my sail panels on. I decided to work on them with them still on the car, using extreme caution not to let any chemicals get on the car paint (it's going in for a paint job soon anyway). Once I had the old panel off, I used a small rag (for better control) soaked with a printer's solvent (I work as a printer) Varn V-120 and then used a putty knife to remove the old adhesive. You can only remove a little at a time but it took about 30 minutes per panel to remove, nice and clean. I attached the panels which worked out great. The craftsmanship was excellent and the fit was beyond compare. Thank you for the service."

Bill Cade, South San Francisco, CA, '86 SE

"I did not remove the frames and it was about a 4 hour job. Removing the old adhesive took the most time. 3M adhesive remover, Hook & Loop scrub disc, (the green pad) on my variable speed cordless drill, this did a real nice job."

I just purchased a pair of Sail Panels for my '86 V6 SE from him [Paul], and if it's possible they look better than the originals.... I guess I'll have to get the car painted now so it doesn't look bad by comparison! Thanks Paul for a job WELL done!
