Swap Interior Door/Dash Panels (45th to 1LE)

I have a Summit White 1LE--which of course comes with the silver door/dash panels--it looks okay with the dark gray leather seats--however--checked out the interior of a friends 45th Edition Camaro yesterday and those have white door/dash panels--I think swapping mine out to match Summit White exterior would look AWESOME--does anyone know if these door/dash panels are universal fit and I could swap them out--if so has anyone done it and how hard a project is it (I.e. do you have to remove dash)--finally I am assuming I could buy these white door/dash panels through GMDIRECT.COM--thank you in advance for advice--have a great day!!!

I have the GM interior panel kit with the 45th logo on just the strip on the passenger side. There is a Summit white interior panel kit from GM, however if you look closely to the 45th panels....they are PEARL white. Upon first glance they look the same but I caught it when the sun hit just right. I would just get the plain white.....and they are sold in a kit of 4 pieces. ~$650-$700

I have the 45th logo because mine is a 2012 (45th year) I also have the piece that matches without the logo in my attic.





The white panels lighten up the interior a lot. My Blue Ray Metallic 1LE on order with the Blue-Ray panels is gonna be DARK!

I remember seeing them for about 450 from one of the GMparts websites, not sure which one. I want them too, just hard to drop 5 bills on plastic.

white, yellow and orange as far as kits go. There are ways to get other colored panels(if GM ever made them on production cars) on your car but PM me and I'll have to tell you how to going about doing it there. Corporate GM watches these boards....and I don't wanna screw up my blue panel order.

Did GM ever make gloss black panel kits? If not, why not?
If so, PM me.

CORRECT! And to order them you have to provide a VIN# to a ZL1/HWSE or TF3 edition to get the parts.

Seriously? Why?
There are a couple vendors that have the door panels but not the dash pieces.

...so what you are saying is, that GM won't sell them to you unless you provide them with a real legit VIN#?

What about the online vendors? Would they need a real ZL1 or TF3 edition VIN#?
What would stop someone from "borrowing" a Vin# from a "friend"?

Are you referring to fibreglass door panels from RPI?
Do you know of any other places where I can source gloss black door panels from preferably OEM?

I'm also looking for matching dash pieces, and on the fence whether to go black chrome on the instrument cluster bezels or stick to gloss black like the exterior of my car, but in either case, I can't find anyone who sells, I'm very surprised by all this!

sometimes they want proof of a vin # if the part goes backorder or (spac)
That's what I had to do to get the Dusk edition panels (Blue-ray)

I want to add IOM panels this winter. But I think you have to cut off the studs on the old ones. The dash is easy.

the factory ones are painted behind panel, so you would have to remove all the paint. i would think if you painted on the outside you would be more prone to scatches.

Indeed, not only that, but you would have to clearcoat, in order to somewhat prevent those scratches. I think this is what RPI does as well on their FG copies, but don't quote me on that.
