Got a call from dealer, had to switch colors!!!

I got a call from my dealer today, Findlay Chevy here in vegas, and he told me that GM was not going to be releasing CGM in the first production run of camaros and he needed to get the finished order to them today and in order for me to get my camaro by May then i'd have to change the color... If I didn't change the color then he could not say when the color would be available nor when I would get my car...

I changed it to Black

Did anyone else have to do this today????

No but i was expecting that call today. My dealer told me about constraints and how certain colors might not be available for this first batch. My dealer didnt find out his constraints today though. Im still waiting to hear from him on if i have to change color. Did your dealer tell you what colors they are making?

im sorry but other than White, i dont believe it when a dealer says anything about colors like that, the chassis are painted as they come down the line, what ever color the car is, it gets sprayed. its not like they run blue for a week then red for a week etc etc.

i call shenanigans

i dont think your right headpunter...there was already some discussion that CGM might be late because of the inability to finish the current impala grey

Last week I got a call from my sales rep and he said that GM is now offering the blue's for the SS models cause GM didn't offer it before hand. But they actually did offer the colors from November I think? I saw it in another post on here. Hmmmmmm?

They dont spray them anymore. they dip them. the way they do it now is they run them down the line and dip them into a tank and thats where the color constraints come in. they dont want to change their paint tank every car so they just run a whole bunch through one color.

OK, my dealer got 15 allocations and George was not BSing me when he told me that CGM was not going to be available..

Color change to black wasn't a bad choice I don't think... I Had to make the decision that minute, he told me that I was number 2 on his allocation list. The first person on their list is an employee there. and he wanted to give me the option to change colors if I wanted to.

He told me that the phone call he had with GM told him that CGM or summit white are not available at first production run cycle.. meaning the first 4 weeks of them making the vehicles, he did however not get information as to how many cycles would need to happen before Summit White or CGM were available...

Not true at all. One look at a painted body will tell you this if you don't believe me. They are sprayed robotically. They could spray a single car multiple colors if they really felt like it. They have a limited number of robots/buckets so they have a limited number of colors that they can use.

CGM is "awaiting validation" but *should* be available by launch which is still over a month away.

This should probably be merged with this thread as it's basically the same topic.

That sucks, i hope you guys get your cars soon, i know that Scott mentioned that CGM was the most preordered colour.
I thought the cars werent dipped and that any car can be painted at any colour and that they dont do batches. The only problem with the CGM was that the impala grey hasnt been completely finished due to the delay. Arc Angel was right about that
4 weeks, well i guess thats good for some, but i honestly think that sucks. Are these the only constraints now. Who care, another month is worth waiting for the colour you absolutely want.
Anyone know if these will be the only constriaints for the first batch of cars?
It seems like they must have ABL done because there are no constraints on 2LTs and 2SS, maybe a constraint will come in time for that, maybe they dropped ABL, or maybe they got it working!!!!!

This is a post by 80zedder explaining how the camaros will be painted

they go into a phosphate bath, ELPO dip, they are dusted with ostritch feathers in between steps "they are a pain in the ass to fix if they get stuck to the bodies and painted over "my job as a paint repair tech".

The paint in the car plant is electrically charged as well as the primer. All waterbased paint instead of laquer paint as well.

What you saw at the BMW plant on TV, i think it was Ultimate Factories " i seen it too" is how we do it as well with a few minor adjustments/steps.

When you seen the guys in the paint booth wearing the blue overalls "smurf outfits" wetsanding out defects and buffing the bodies to a shine is where i started off doing in truck paintshop and car before i moved up the ladder of asskissing.
