Ambient Blue/Orange Interior Lighting Around the Door, Rings, Gauges, and Dash(maybe)

Can someone please confirm the ambient lighting inside the vehicle for a 2LT with RS package. For what I read so far, if you don't have the inferno orange interior there is blue ambient lighting down the doors, rings, and gauges. Is there also blue ambient lightning along the dash?

For inferno orange interior, I know that there is orange ambient lighting along the doors. Is there orange lighting around the rings, gauges, and the dash. Some are reporting that the ambient lighting is blue...

If there are no ambient lighting along the dash, has anyone attempted to install lighting along the dash.

So far NOBODY has ambient lighting across the dash.

Hopefully now that GM has emerged from bankruptcy they can finish making the Camaro interior.

Look at the link above. It might help you out. There have been several discussions about this already. Use the "search" option and you will find numerous threads on this.

The only car which get's red rings around the guages is the US spec 2SS with IO interior. That's it! All Canadian, Mexican, Middle East or US spec 2LT cars will get blue rings around the guages regardless of what interior you have. That's as simple as I can lay it out for you.

Did you add it yourself to see how it would look or something? Just curious

You know, that "huge" expanse of uninterrupted plastic, is interrupted by an acrylic strip. The ambient lighting would not have broken it up more, since you can only see it at night, and at night you really can't see that huge expanse of plastic. It really wouldn't be too hard to fabricate the abl across the dash yourself. I will be attempting this soon myself. I'll keep everyone posted on how it turns out

Lets not talk about my blue rings, or us Canadian blue rings.
I must say, the first story we got for this issue was total bullshit.
The first story stated that it was an SS option at first only, so only SS clusters were made with the red rings.
Well how does that make sense when SSs that are not US have blue rings only, when the IOM interior was always an option for the SS.
I hate the cover up stories we get for these little screw ups.
I wonder who got the short end of the deal
P.S does anyone truly believe the "overheating" dash abl?

Um, how does it NOT make sense? The SS comes with blue rings for most but red rings for American IOM. That's not a "cover story" or a "screw up."

And who ever said something about overheating dashes? Nobody here that I've read. They've told us that when they tried dash lighting it was just too much light, bad for your night vision and an unnecessary distraction.

I agree, I think the ABL on the dash would be way too distracting.

Look at your post count, then your join date. Dont challenge me on what ive read on this forum.
And for your information, the first story stated that it was an SS option only that was then decided to be an option for the v6. But by the time they had made the decision, the order for the clusters was already put through. Therefore all SS were supposed to have red rings (if you ordered the IO interior). How does it then make sense if only US SSs are getting the red rings. By the time of order, both metric and Imperial SS gauges would have been ordered with blue rings and red rings.
So dont try to correct me if you dont have your facts to back it up.
And actually, the first answer we had to the ABL not being on the dash was that there was a overheating issue and that it caused some cracks.
How about you read a little more before making statements " And who ever said something about overheating dashes? Nobody here that I've read."

I can confirm that my Black 2SS/RS M6 IOM interior has the orange rings around the circles and orange abl on the doors. I did not realize that the 1SS or V6 with IOM interior did not have this feature or even cars that are sold outside of the US. Kinda makes my car a bit special though.
