Nothing. We live with it, I think. It's a "feature" with Summit Whites. You guys didn't see the 'Two-Tone Paint Job' on the Car Sticker?

In thirty years when we are selling our 2010 Summit White Camaro's at Mecums Auctions will they say: "Oh look Vince, its another white 2010 Camaro that has the mismatched paint, too bad that knocks the value down 50%" or "Oh look Vince, its a white 2010 Camaro and it still has the mismatched paint that was typical of that year. Definitely the original paint, that car is a ten."

Yeah, it bugs me too. It hasn't bothered me enough to do something about it, yet. I might swap out the fuel door, that is the most obvious to me.

The mismatch is most pronounced in certain light. I think the fuel door seems to stick out more because it is surrounded by the quarter panel. I suppose I should see about ordering a new one from my dealer.

Nice to hear, that other fellow summit white owners are having same problems. I agree, fuel door is the worst, like light yellow against white. See what the dealer says, when i go there.

The first day I brought my Summit White SS home my neighbor came over to look at it and the first words out of his mouth were "Did you notice the front facia is a different color white". Until he pointed it out I had not noticed but I do see it now. The facia is a yellowish white. What the hell, I still love my car.

Guys,
I have a 2011 Summit White. Haven't noticed any of the issues you all are talking about but haven't looked all that closely I guess. I will check it out tonight and report what I find.

I could tell right away that the summit white is different between the plastic and metal, especially the fuel cap cover. I'd rather live with it than have them try to fix it and it end up looking worse. Nobody really notices until I tell them, and as a matter of fact, this car really gets some looks, people love the white.

White shouldn't be viewed the same way as the IOM's or other metallic colors that look different at different angles. Black also should not fall under this bulletin either.

Even Ray Charles could see it doesn't match.

Our IOM is definately like this. The front bumper cover looks so much different that the rest of the car, but then when you look at the rest sometimes it doesn't all match either. I say it adds character to the car and no one else has the paint job we do.

My Summit White also has this issue.Talked to the folks at S&T Body in Katy,Texas. They do all of Hennessey's work. Said that you could respray car and still have same issue.Front fascia and rear end are a composite material and some colors will never look the same. Gonna have to live with it or paint it a different color.
