$900 to remove stripes and paint new ones on

Sorry,

Yes! One painter has quoted me $900 to remove the factory stripes and paint on the new ones, another painter has quoted me $800!

We just got word today (2/14) that our 45th was through production and now it is waiting for the invoice paperwork & delivery schedule. I have a VIN in hand so now it's just a matter of time.

Tell me about it. A pile of parts at the house now and more arriving this week. Most bought from site members with the exception of two items from SLP. Next after delivery, install mods, dyno and then we'll be good to go!

I'll have the wifey snap some pictures and I'll post them as soon as the car arrives at the dealer.

There is a detailed DIY available here. Do a search. I found it by accident. Good info.

You know I wasn't sure about the white either, but now that I have the car it's really not so bad. And when it's dark it's actually really cool because the light on the door almost makes the whole white panel glow.

Have you seen one in person? It goes well in my opinion, I like it a lot! And I'm not just saying that cause I drive one, I saw the interior before I knew I was even getting a camaro and I liked it!

Although if you want, I know people who want the 45th interior trim. A buddy of mine would surely trade you the gray painted interior out of his brand new 2012 2SS/RS for your white interior pieces. He wants them mostly because of course, his camaro is summit white!

Holy crap that looks awesome!!!!

Probably too in depth though. It'd require custom airbrushing and plenty of clear over it.

A guy I work with does custom body work and paint in his spare time and told me $400 to do it. (hardly charging me time) but people keep saying paint wont be good enough that I would need to powder coat them.

Sounds like a good deal but I do question the durability. I know that powder coated rims are tougher. And painted rims will always get a few dings. But with enough clear coats (but not too many), it should be just like our rims are now. Our rims are painted right now after all.
