Thanks, it's an android 5mp camera and I have been shocked how good some the pictures turn out. That one has been resized so it lost a little quality too.

Do all metal flake/metallic colors have this issue? It really looks like they painted the front facia separate from the body and the gun pushed the metal flake differently. It isn't just a simple light shift like GM claims though as the seam between the facia and front fender is where the color shift takes place and the area below the seam on the fender is the same angle as the area on the facia above the seam. My wife drives a metallic colored Mustang and Ford doens't have this problem So come on GM, figure the paint out.

From what i have heard, yes all the metallic colors have issues matching flexible body parts to metal ones... it has been a big issue, almost as big as trying to match the paint for repair work... its a nightmare...

just don't order anything with metal flake paint now the only place that makes it is in japan and is shut down due to the tsunami! RJT is on indefinite back order due to that... and ford and Chrysler have the same problem with that

ha ha ha my spell check tells me that Chrysler is spelled wrong if it is not capitalized but doesn't say anything about ford lol

GM typically does not paint the front or rear fascia; it is delivered to the plant in color. Getting a perfect match even with the capabilities of companies like DuPont and BASF is still challenging.

Silver Stripes?
Haven't seen Silver stripes on a car in person yet but leaning that way. Do they "pop" in the sunlight like IBM does or are they more of a satin silver color? Hard to tell from here. Think I have finally found a '11 2SS/RS IBM/Hurst(1st choice) It's without stripes( easy to have put on at dealer. silver or white?)Black Interior(1st choice was Gray)
No sunroof(Ist choice was a sunroof but can do without.) Do any of you really miss a sunroof? Thanks.

how much is it to add stripes. I've seen the ones that extend below the hood line down to the grill and think they stand out more.

The stripes I saw on an IBM were more satin looking. Didn't like them personally. Now if they had them with a metallic like the IBM paint - then I'd go for it.

This may not be the best picture for comparison, but the top shows the factory silver stripes and the bottom shows my aftermaket Pewter stripes.


Here is a close up of the pewter ones I got from a local shop. There is plenty of metallic look to them. If you are interested, they can be purchased here: http://www.stewartdesign.biz/camaro-...ffc20faa97ab55. Select "060 Pewter" for the color I have.

Depends on the lighting. Hardly noticeable at night, pop nice during the day.

I like the look of the silver stripes on mine, but they are closer to satin.

I installed my heritage grille today too.

As for the sunroof - Got mine without them for the following reasons:

1. My other car has one - I think I have opened it a grand total of 2 times.
2. Saves some weight.
3. Gives a little more headroom.
4. Saves you $900.
