Here is a bit of advice for those of you doing this swap that will make things much easier and better for your Camaro.

The little 4 legged "spider" that goes on with the bolt to hold the antenna to the roof is only intended to be a one time use part. They are made specifically to have a certain spring / shape retention to them once installed. This is to ensure that with age, temperature changes and so on, that the antenna still stays sealed to the roof.

Since it appears they are being reused here they are sprung, and won't work quite as intended. I would recomend carefully trying to rebend them onto the original shape. The four legs should all be close to parallel with each other, think of it as being shaped like a tiny table.

When the spider is properly shaped, as when they were when new, they are installed on the antenna with the bolt catching the first couple of threads. This way everything can be assembled outside of the vehicle and it will all fit through the hole in your roof with the bolt already on. The small plastic clips will hold it in place while you tighten the bolt. As the bolt is tightened the legs of the spider will spread back out and have a proper retention to hold the antenna tight to the roof. This should make it much easier to install without having to try to get all of the parts in place under the headliner, and will make sure the antenna stays tight and does not leak.

Another suggestion might be to have a second person hold the antenna while the bolt is tightened, otherwise the antenna might twist slightly in the hole as the bolt is tightened and end up slightly crooked.

I am not sure if the instructions list it, but proper torque on the bolt is 9N-M.

That's why I kept my original clip.

are there any pictures of a 2010 summit white with the painted antenna installed? i know it's REALLY hard to get a genuine OEM color match...i went to my dealer last week to get a bottle of touch up paint and they told me summit white was an invalid color! i'd like to order this but want to be sure it's a real tried-and-true match

Are the convertible antennas the same? Since they're painted at the factory, is there an option now to order one that is factory painted?

Buicks have had factory painted antennas for a while too, and they're the same antenna. But I don't believe a factory painted antenna will yield any better results than the antennas offered in this thread.
