My wife's co-worker just got her 45th last week. She freaked out today when she found some scratches on the bumper corner, passenger side. Not really sure how it happened as she was parked out in the middle of nowhere at work. I think they were going to check the security cam footage to see if someone did anything.

Knowing how much of a nutcase I am about details and overly OCD about our 45th, she refused to let her husband touch the car and brought it over to me to look at. Took out the trusty Adam's Polish and got some of the initial surface scuffing out but there was still some surface scratches. Out came the 1000 and 2000 grit sandpaper to which everyone freaked out again to what I was about to do.

While I couldnt get all of the scratches out, I was still able to knock down quite a bit of the area and polish it back out. I didnt trust myself to go to far as to not cause any damage to the paint or mar the look of the metallic. Our paint is so soft, its very easy to get down into it fast. Overall, unless you catch it at the right angle and know exactly where to look, the remaining scratches are light enough to not be noticed anymore.

That was my good deed for the day

Good deal! You're a good man!

I've got some scratches on my paint where someone let a dirty tire roll 50 feet and SMACK my passenger door.

So I used polish at first, got the big scuffs to go away. Then I used ScratchX by meguiars and got more out. Then tried a tiny bit of wax over it to see if it would cover it. Unfortunately, its a very light scratch into the clear coat. Do you have any suggestions?

Depending upon how deep it is, a full buff maybe wet sand may be needed. Only issue is if you do either that panel will look so much different from the rest.

If it's really shallow, just take some detail spray and 1500 grit and go at it. Go slow, wipe and check often. Switch over to 2000 grit, wipe and check often. Dont go crazy, the orange peel will start showing and of course the area your sanding will dull out. I didnt risk taking out all the orange peel to get it perfectly flat....just wasnt comfortable since it's metallic paint.

I used the Adam's swirl and haze remover to cut the dull spot down which basically brought all the shine back, then went over it with paint revive and then buttery wax. Probably spent 15-20 minutes doing it.

I was a bit worried since I had never seen it in person, but also really doubtful about the stripes.

All I can say is "Wow". What an absolutely amazing car... Stripes?? Perfect. Color? Best. Ever.

I'll post some pics soon, but even the guys at the dealership were taking pics of it because they said they rarely see any...

Haven't stopped smiling all day...

Congrats and welcome, enjoy your new 45th. I'm just curious, are the Camaros exported to Dubai Euro spec?

Yeah that's what I'm worried about with a buff, that it'll stand out from the rest of the car.

Ok I'll pick up some 1500 and 2000 grit and go at it the next weekend I'm home. I probably won't do much, don't want to mess it up.

Hi Ocikat,

Not Euro, seen the funky taillights and side mirrors. The cars here are called 'gulf spec' they do something to the radiators to keep them cooler.

I had Eibach springs and sway bars installed last week. Did the bowtie delete on the front grill and removed the bowtie from the rear. Replaced the factory floor mats with diamond plate SS Logo aluminum mats. Forgestar CF10's, 20 x 9 front, 20 x 11 rear with Nitto Tires (275 front/315 rear) are ordered. Once they arrive and installed I'll post some pics.

I like these with the 45th on the side. Don't think the logo will get stepped on with it
off to the side like that.

Shoot, just saw this. Yes, out of stock online. Thanks for the offer though.
Just got the update this morning, car is built and bayed for shipping. I think I might give her the preliminary ins card for it and see if that triggers what I have done.
Seems ALL the 45th stuff is a coupe also, no convertible stuff that I have found.
Am also going to update the GMConnects with her email on her birthday too.

Anyone been keeping track of how many 45th's are here now? I heard they are only building 2500 units but I am beginning to think that was just another rumor......

I contacted Scott (fbodfather) and he said they will know the total number of 45ths when 2012 production closes in June, and the numbers are released in July.

I think it's definitely more than 2,500. But that's just me.
