1996 American Eagle Roof

Looking to do some resealing on the roof and was wondering what it was made of. Rear section is fiberglass and the paint has worn off under the Spoiler? down to the fiberglass. That part I can tell but what about the rest of it? Fiberglass or Rubber? Thanks

Don't know for sure about a 96, but our 98 has a fiberglass roof.

Seems after some brief research you have an EPDM Rubber Roof- Very Common for the year - Perhaps post some pictures to confirm !

Post a picture of your roof. In your other post with the trim question it looks like you have a fiberglass roof ... my eagle is a 1997 and it is fiberglass and it looks like your trim picture from the side view.

took a little bit to get back to it(honey does and racecar). Here is some pictures of the roof. Don't look bad except the front and rear caps needing painted or sealed. Any opinions on shape would be appreciated. Thanks

That's fiberglass. Easy to maintain. Clean it really good, remove any questionable sealant and reseal. Use exploding rivets on your drip rail wherever there are questionable looking rivets ... I would dip the rivets in sealent before inserting them with your rivet tool. Also put sealant behind the drip rail before you pull everything together with new rivet. You can also paint the roof. I'm from the boating world and would use a quality marine paint available at most good marine stores. Prep it and use a roller on the non skid portion of your roof which is 90% of it.
Hope this helps!

Thanks that helps a lot. Been looking a boat paint as well as some stuff called Bus Kote. It is an insulating roof paint originally made for school buses but now used on rv roofs too.
