Sure did, but that didn't make sense to me....and I believe that's not correct.

The ZR1 vettes hood I'm talking about that had the "browner CGM" was from 3 years ago at the Austin car show. They brought in the Camaros and other cars too for the car show. The ZR1 vette was there. The hood was the color of my grill while the rest of the car was CGM. I talked with Scott then and there about the paint mismatch. There was no doubt about it....the paint was different and that's what' I'm experiencing right now.

I highly doubt this has anything to do with Japan and missing an ingredient. I think it has something more to do with maybe a type of paint...it's base...something. but, if this has been happening for years, well before the earthquake that shut down other plants and companies that produce paints, etc, then a missing ingredient can't be it.

oh, i didn't know about the ZR1 or when it was. i do know that's what i'd read from GM on here somewhere about why CGM & JSB went away. if they've got two different mixtures of the same color floating around, that's definitely an internal issue with them.

I wish I had pix. I think I was told why it happened...the color mis match. But, ...you know? I'm going to have to go back and ask again. I'm curious. I know it's pre earthquake internal issues. just can't remember why. I thought it was the paint manufacturer....the type of paint itself. Hrm...

Oh, you'll only need to take one quick glance to see if it's off. It'll be so quickly recognizable.... Hope it turns out great.

Apparently they knew it was just a matter of time before he had the fascia off and found it

I can't believe it.... that had to have been from two years ago when they took off the front bumper doing the paint. We got to PA, went to Toms place, saw the car, decided to paint the THR SS on the hood, and left for the night. The following day, we came back and they were just putting the front clip back on. Scott was there at the time as we were all going to Carlisle for the regular June car show. I can only guess that was the two of them screwing around saying, "one day he's going to see this...."

Pretty cool.

If the paint dries... No time for powder coating. I had them ship the bar bar. A little Rustoleum and we are ready for a test drive. Btw, do you like oversteer?
