It drives me nuts that ground effects come unpainted

I love this car, but why can't the ground effects come painted! The Mitsubishi EVO has this option and I consider that car a competitor to the Camaro! Now I'll have to get someone to paint them and pray they don't screw it up!

And I'm not buying this car until the hideaway lights come out. Yes I said it, I want the hide away lights!

Otherwise I love the car.

Hideaway lights are gone with bad hairbands of the 80s. Although i agree on the ground effects. They should be painted... very very weak on GMs part.

Did they? Because the package sure is selling well despite the insane price. That says everything right there!

Anyone know the cost to get the kit painted? I was thinking of buying it after the fact because of the non paint issue.

That must have been the pearl paint guy because $2,500 is insane to just paint the 4 pieces.

Seems so unfinished that they didn't do a paint to match GFX kit. Exactly why they are going bankrupt. Hopefully the gov't has better quality control.

This is the kind of response I would expect from a guy who owns a Honda.

Hideaway lights are hardly an 80's throwback. Hideaway lights have only been available on 1st generation cars.

Hideaway lights on this car would look great. I have, and I'm sure many on this site have seen photoshoped versions, and would probably agree that if done properly it would look great.

It doesn't make me completely ticked that they don't come painted...but the price is absolutely outrageous.

I thought the $2500 was the Kit and the Paint job?? I am pretty sure that was it.

I ordered mine with gfx but thought it should have been painted too. Will check around for paint cost.

I can see why they would come Un-painted for those that want a Custom Paint Scheme on the Ground Effects. However, the price should be lower for Un-painted and Higher for a Body Color ones.

Maybe, once they caught up with demand, they will have time to Paint the Ground Effects.

I Agree that is a High Price for Un-Painted Ground Effects.

Is this coming from performance parts or normal order?

If it's from GMPP then it should be unpainted and expensive.

Ground effects are basically a "look how much money I can spend" option anyway. Why should it matter if they're black or color?

Most of the 4th generation Firebirds had hideaway headlamps!!!! At least '93 -'02.
Some of the 3rd generation Birds did as well I believe.
