SG, Have you looked closely at your '23? Wonder if "this is the way" included in the manufacturing process now. I haven't checked mine too closely to tell...Not sure if this is a "fix" or a hack. After reading what needs to be done, I think I'd pass having a dealer attempt this. I can see far greater damage happening by just attempting the "fix"
I have checked mine each weekend since purchase, and just looked at it again. I have ZERO issues with mine and hope it remains that way. It clearly doesn't impact all ZR2s, but for those that are impacted, it would upset me greatly as I would not trust a dealer to do what was asked in the bulletin...and have to have my hood repainted, but that's just me.SG, Have you looked closely at your '23?

I said the exact same thing...not a fan.I spoke to my service advisor over the phone. They just made a note of it and said that since it will be documented it can be addressed anytime.
I think the fix looks like a fucking hack job, so I'm gonna see if they can come up with something better.
I really like my family owned dealer, their service department, and their body shop. I trust they will do good work and they always go to bat for me with GM.Thanks AXE, its been over 6 months for this fix, but at least problem has been acknowledged by Team Bow Tie.
Ill report what my service team in So Cal has to say.
For the life of me, I can't figure out why they didn't just stamp these hoods like they do for the Duramax. It would look higher quality and be virtually problem free. They created a problem that should have never existed.In agreement here. Good to see the issue has been acknowledged, that’s step 1. But relying on a dealer to get parts from Amazon seems a little suspect. I would feel better if GM put a parts kit together, with proper neoprene tape for the dealers to address each truck that has the problem. So far, my hood is fine. Mine is a 2023.
That doesn’t sound good. Good luck.I really like my family owned dealer, their service department, and their body shop. I trust they will do good work and they always go to bat for me with GM.
My paint appears to be really poor quality, lots of rock chips, now I'm seeing paint coming off bottom of doors. Paint chips look like craters with cracking on edges, not just nicks. Paint seems like it is very soft. I do have the hood cowling issue as well. I've only got 1600 miles on it and it won't look good by 10k. We'll see how it's handled.
