bodyshops are real busy here. with the bad weather. to me, i would pay the dealer, since they would be installing them, billing gm warranty. if they scratch it, or wreck it, they fix it. if you have a *X bodyshop in town paint, then take to dealer and shit happens, your beat as they will blame each other leaving you holding the bag.
mind you, i had called ina favor to have a high end shop paint mine, and i installed them, as i didnt want the dealer to skip steps. gm pays 4 warranty hours, and it takes at least 6. it is far from a gravy job for techs, and there are so many ways to cheat. remember when you have them sprayed, you lose GFX warranty.

choose carefully.

Funny how it makes you feel the first time you start her up. That feeling doesn't go away! Congrats, we all look forward to seeing it.

Cool

Nice ...Welcome to the gang...By the way, hate to rub it in but I called a dealer near Ottawa on June 19 and they told me that a black Camaro SSRS had just arrived minutes earlier . I bought it within seconds ......by phone and picked it up..... on June 22. YAHOOOOOOOOOOOO
Can't wait for april1st

My GFX was installed 2 months later in 3.5 hrs and was part of the option cost, just under 3330$ C TAX IN. As you can see I left it unpainted,as it accents the car's look and I think that the painted GFX will need touchups over time

Congratulations! Why did it take 9 months? I thought wait times were a lot shorter now.

as per instructions. skipped no steps. did an extra good job on the two way tape stuff.

i completely covered mine in paint protection film, so i am less concerned than you.

if i'm not mistaken, the stock front mudflaps should fit a gfx car.

I had an EPIC FAIL in my choice of dealer...I since found out that i was somewhere like 17th on their "list" and not where i was told at the beginning - the girl I dealt with was a little stretchy with her truth.

Camaro99 - you lucked out! Good for you!
