INFORMATION

Bulletin No.: 08-08-51-002A

Date: January 16, 2013

Subject: Pre-Painting/Cleaning Process for TPO Plastic Fascias

Models:
2013 and Prior GM Passenger Cars and Trucks

Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to clarify Subject and add the 2010-2013 model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 08-08-51-002 (Section 08 - Body and Accessories).

All fascias, with the exception of the Corvette, Camaro and Cadillac XLR, are made of TPO. You may find other TPO parts. If the technician has a question as to the type of plastic they are painting, inspect the back of the part for the plastic symbol (TPO). Prior to painting, prepare the part by following this process:

1. Wash with soap and water.

2. Clean with a 50% mix of isopropyl alcohol and water (or a waterborne cleaner). Check with your paint supplier for product recommendations.

3. Scuff sand per your paint supplier's recommendations.

Note
The use of a solvent-type cleaner will soften, or begin to dissolve, the primer. Base coats do not have any affect on this primer.

4. Reclean with a 50% mix of isopropyl alcohol and water (or a waterborne cleaner).
