They only have a certain number of paint buckets/robots, lets say 10. They have to pick 10 colors that they want to spray all the cars with. If they want to change a color, they have to stop painting cars altogether, clean out the lines/containers of the old paint, and hook in the new paint supply.

And since the same robots are painting other cars currently, they have to finish up orders for the existing colors before they can swap in the new colors. I'm guessing that the delays in Impala production due to GM's financial issues set back their plans to put CGM in the system. I know it's been stated that the Impala uses the same paint line that the Camaro will use (although there could be other cars as well). If you look at the Imapala color options you'll notice a lot of overlap in the colors. They'll probably be replacing one of the colors (probably Dark Silver Metallic) with Cyber Gray Metallic. They likely already had orders queued up waiting to be built in whatever color will be getting the axe and since those orders have already been accepted into the system, they can't just not build them.

In the end (this summer when summit white is in), 7 of the colors will overlap, leaving 3 unique for each car. So my guess is that they actually have the capability of spraying 13 colors at a time; shared by Imapala, Camaro, and maybe others.

^^ At least some people understand how this whole process works... I am getting tired of "How come Gm couldn't have delayed a different color?!" posts/threads. Or the ever present "Just hook up another paint bucket."

If it were that simple, do you think GM would ever even consider delaying their second most popular color on a car with this much hype?

It is a relatively simple issue but they've made the decision to delay CGM by a few weeks. We don't have all the scheduling details of their other lines and the reasons I've stated above make perfect sense as to why they can't just do it now. It's not like they're delaying it by 3 months or something. If they have it in place by April, thats only 10 days of production lost and the only cars affected will be the ones that are #1 or #2 at their dealer and the dealers that can place orders in the first 2 weeks. It sounds like most dealers only got one allocation for the entire build month so half of them will probably still be able to order CGM for even their first cars. Shoot, they may just have allow the dealers to put in the orders still and the plant will just hold the CGM orders until it's ready. Who knows. This is a very small speed bump and I really see no reason to get worked up over it.

And I'm definitely not one of the people that has blind faith in GM especially when it comes to keeping us in the dark. See the numerous ABL thread where I've been outspoken in my argument that they should tell us what's going on.
