I don't think it looks that great at all. Just my 2c.

After looking closely, you actually lose the rear quarter windows..

Nevermind.. I'll stick with the hardtop afterall. Spend the 4-5K on a used '00 -'03 Honda Nighthawk 750.

I'd feel safer waiting for the factory version. I'll never forget how bad the cowl shake was on my 69 SS/RS ragtop. I don't feel any cowl shake on my GT500, although there is no way it can as rigid as the coupe and I have not hit any bad railroad tracks with it yet.
I'd love to see a black Camaro convertible with red stripes in my garage parked next to the red GT500 convertible with black stripes!

I don't like it! I don't like that they took the quarter glass away, and that 3rd brake light is just a bolt on. It looks terrible. BTW the placement of the onstar antenna could have been better too! that just looks bad! I think I will just wait for GMs!

Too pricey 4-5k Plus labor and it takes 4-6 weeks. That ain't gonna cheap.

Also, it looks cheap with the 3rd brake light and antenna.

Also, raise your hand if you want to wait another 4-6 weeks to drive your car after we waited all this time.

Good thing I like the coupe.

No thanks.

...yeah T-Top Mod might be doable, but I love the Coupe look vs. Vert. And the placement of the Third-Eye and Sat-Antenna are hidious. Please mod that!!!

won't the rear quarter window be gone in the official convertible as well? its a convertible...its not that big of a deal if the plastic cover doesn't have a plastic rear quarter

and from what i remember the official convertible mule had a tacky third brake light as well and the antenna was in a more awkward position...

i say it looks good...only concerns would be the safety compared to the official one

The sharkfin antennae is for XM, and it *might* be a combo for Onstar/GPS but I'm not sure. Satellite signals need line of site so that is pretty much the only place it can go unless you want it as a hood ornament.

I think GM has a diversity antennae setup for Corvette Convertibles (two antennas, one on each mirror) but who knows how much trouble it is to convert the wiring and match it to Camaro's non-diversity tuner in the radio head unit.
