Good news about people waiting on LPO ground effects

I just got back from the 2010 Equinox training and I had the opportunity to sit down with some of the trainers to ask some questions and apparently GM did find another company to build the ground effects kit. They just got clearance for shipping and the new ground effects kits should be at dealers soon! So if anyone ordered them and was waiting for them to come in, your wait is almost over...

The original supplier of many of the LPO's (ground effects, stripes, car covers) unfortunately went under a while back, so this is great news.

Thanks for inquiring about them and passing this good news to us here. I ordered the GFX and was concerned they would not arrive within acceptable period after delivery of the car due to the supplier issue. I can now hope the GFX will arrive before or with the car (uninstalled of course).

Hooray! Had my new car for 3 weeks now and have been unable to get any news on my backordered GFX Kit.

Dealer sent me an email today, stating that my GFX are scheduled to arrived next week.

Good news! Hopefully they start shipping soon. I lost my "chin" piece in mid May and am still waiting for the replacement.

Does anyone know who the new supplier for the ground effects kit is? I believe the original supplier was a company in Windsor called Ground Effects Ltd.

I searched on Google for 2010 Camaro ground effects kit on the shopping section of google search..Found a ton of them for anyone needing the now..I settled on www.pfyc.com (parts for you car.com) and received my gfx kit within a normal time frame...so you guys may wanna check there if you cant find any, and you need them now..

Anyone know anything about the high wing spoiler yet..Talked to a dealer beginning of June and he told me that the high wing spoilers were made prior to the Camaros being made and that after the cars were made they found that the spoilers didnt fit so they had to recall and scrap the old ones..Was then told that they should be out during the first week of July..First weeks here no news..Anyone else know anything???

Why would they release privileged information to you? No offense meant to you whatsoever. Just trying to validate the credibility of your information as I've been impatiently waiting for what seems like a month for mine to arrive. Thanks!

SOB, the ride in your sig is sweet. Yours is the first I've seen with white stripes that I honestly like. I also like the contrast with your gfx.

This isn't his info. GM Trainers gave it to him. It's their credibility and, well, they work there. I know things about my company.

I have it on good authority that Ground Effects Ltd was at one time or another, the supplier of the Camaro ground effects kit. If there's any truth to there being a supplier change, does anyone know who the new supplier is?

Does this guy work for GM? I mean he walks into a dealership gets a once over on a 2010 Equinox and then is entitled to information about the Camaro's ground effects? Seems sketchy to me. Who is this guy?

Where are you getting that he walked into a dealership and was given this information? The way I understand it is he attended a training for the 2010 Equinox and obtained the info there. Sounds like he is a mechanic for a Chevy dealership.
I know what you mean though. But then again, look at how many people believed in "the mole".

"I just got back from the 2010 Equinox training"

Well the opening sentence in the thread does say that he was in training. I have never heard of a consumer (or casual shoppers) being "trained" on a vehicle. Salesmen and mechanics get trained on vehicles. I dont see anything that would suggest he isnt a GM employee. Whats with the bitter cynicism too? If the info is not correct, is it really gonna ruin your life?

Guys, Chevyrocker has posted info on the site since early April and he does work at a dealership. I believe he is a salesman and if you want to check out his post history, I think that will answer any of the questions you have about him. Thanks for the info Chevyrocker.

Well no, not at all man, but I was given "training" on my Camaro by my sales representative and I don't work for GM, although for the next 5 years I do apparently paying off my car. "Training" and "Instruction" are relative terms. Just seemed a little strange that if he presents information like this, which I'm VERY grateful for because I'm desperately awaiting my ground effects, if he could explain a little bit of who he is, interpreting his information would be easier and give him much more credibility. Relax, I'm not personally attacking this guy. Believe me, please! Ever hear the lyrics, "Quit playing games with my heart?" That's what I feel like and the wait is unbearable. Though if it made the front page headlines here, I'm inclined to believe it is the truth, but I would like to know more about this guy. Does he have to explain himself? Not at all and life will continue on regardless. I ask because it would make me feel better. Nothing more. I swear I mean no offense. :(

thats cool. I sold Toyotas for a year and my comment about traing was based on my experience. We called it a "walk around" where we showed the customers all the tricks of the car.

Although i havent put in an order yet, I understand waiting. I have a job offer for a law enforcement gig which I applied for in Nov 2006. Yeah...still waiting to get the call to start training...trust me, I know the pain of waiting for something. Hopefully, the waiting list will be short when I order my camaro (2SS Manual, IBM, CGM RALLY'S, RS, BLACK INTERIOR, SUNROOF, GROUND EFFECTS, VR ENGINE COVER)

When I tell you this car is everything and more. You better believe it! I just feel like my project is incomplete because the ground effects are missing. I want to do full body rally striping from the front ground effects lip all the way over the top of the car, over the spoiler, and down to the very bottom of the ground effects attached to the rear bumper. I've been talking about it for awhile now and I'm anxious to see how people will react to it. Do you guys thnk it would look stupid to have bumper to bumper striping like a Mustang or just stop the stripes after the rear spoiler?

As stated in this Thread the dealers were installing them incorrectly, so of course your dealer wants to blame it on the design.

why does it matter who he is..hes just trying to be helpful..not trying to piss you off or anything..but hes not asking for money or down payments for anything, so what if he is sketchy, his post was just to help people out..even if it was wrong what harm would it do..just be thankful that people are actually out there that want to help us camaro owners out..even if it was misinformed info they are still looking out for us..so lets forget about interrogating people for their info and start interrogating the info..thats just my thoughts though.
