To me, you just can't do better than Red Jewel Tintcoat!

It's like getting 2 colours in 1

I love the slight color change due to light. That and either way this color looks really deep. I just can't wait to see what mine looks like with a couple coats of Zaino!

What you see happens but it does not make it through final check. There is a shade difference allowed between panels but apparently it is so barely visible you can’t see it by the naked eye! One of the base coats thickness is likely out of spec.

Don't be afraid to buy the RJT, this anomaly won't happen to our production Camaro. You know if this made it to your dealer you would get a paint job to correct it but you do not want the GM dealer’s body shop finish. With the priority GM is placing on this car , trust me, GM would rectify to your satisfaction.
I have ordered ABM and seriously considering RJT even with this faux pas. I wish there was a GM paint dept person to speak up on this cause this is a gorgeous color that needs to come out. But then again......if less buy it cause of this the showing, the more "Rare”! My car will be if I get it RJT!!
I, too, would think, "They would have to be stupid to release a car where the color of the bumpers doesn't match the rest of the car", but this is GM we are talking about. He he he....But in all seriousness, I'm torn between black and RJT. I think the car looks great in both, but I am really hesitant because if I ordered RJT and my car came out like the pics on here with the miscoloration --- I would be furious. But then again, black is a b*tch to take care of, so i'm torn. But a clean black camaro cannot be beat!!!

Yes, it would be nice if GM paint person could alleviate my fears.
For now, I'll just have to wait to see it in person at a dealer to decide.

Who knows...by the time they on dealer lots I might fall in love with ABM or CGM or IOM --- so many good choices!!!

I had an '07 Cobalt SS Coupe in a color called Sport Red Tintcoat,(it was available on '08's as well, I am not sure about the '09's) which to my eyes is identical to RJT on the Camaro SS I saw at the Cleveland Auto Show . That color cost $295 extra on the Cobalt, just as RJT is extra on the Camaro. If they are not the same color, they are awfully close. It looks like a burgundy almost in cloudy weather but the sunlight really makes it look like a metallic Ruby red. Actually, I liked the color enough that I would have ordered my Camaro in RJT but, I really liked the ABM so, that is what I ordered.

Again about the color. It's 2 materials / same paint. Not really GM's fault. If they made it metal it would not give the 5mph flex requirement.

Don't sweat it. But also don't blame them. Complex paints change when they dry and depending on the surface it can appear different. If it's that much an issue get one of the colors that does not dry as contrasting.

Remember they have to bend.. they have to shrink etc. It's not just how it looks. It's how it holds up. You want a paint that can bend when you shoot it onto a plastic component surface.

arcangel..thanks for the hd pics. they went a long way towards my decision to pick rjt.

what a classy color. for me its perfect, i'm 49 and didnt want to go with too flashy of a color. i'll take enough grief from friends who think i'm trying to be young again,but hey whats wrong with having some fun. anyway i have'nt been this excited about a car in a long time.

cant wait to take delivery on my 2lt rs rjt with polished 20's

You should post those two pics of it in the driveway next to the bright red car.

Here they are:

I was seriously considering RJT and really love the color but I have a 79 Z28 that I restored that is very similar and didn't want two cars that close. So I ordered IOM just to be different. I don't know, maybe I should have................

Here's a pic of my '79, it looks a little darker because it was a cloudy day.
