This has been an issue for the Camaro. I believe there is a TSB out. I believe the dealership should know this. I believe they figured out how to put a spacer in the bumper somehow, not sure. I have to have mine done in the spring.

Have you taken it to your dealer they fixed mine up in 4 days, no more problems sense.

Originally it was to be 3 but they took an extra day

Yes. I had it done. My car was Rally Yellow also. The dealer broke some of the tabs on the bumper cover when he pulled it off to paint it, so I ended up getting a whole new bumper cover out of the deal.

When you pop the trunk up top, in back of the tailights there are two plastic push-pins. Push pin furthest back gets replaced with a j-nut and a bolt on each side. This hard locates the bumper cover so it doesn't rub against the quarter panel.

I put some door guards on last night, and I immediately noticed the paint peeling off around the inside of the door edge as I slipped the rubber piece onto the door.

I mean it peeled off so easily in a single sheet, scares the hell out of me for the future of this particular car's paint job.

Ours had the back bumper repainted. Kind of a PITA, but it looks good as new again.

Is it the two panels directly touching, and one happens to shifts a little, which peals the paint?

Is it possible this only happens on the solid colors (BLK, SW, VR, and RY)?

I don't think anyone has mentioned this about the metallics, except rock chips.

Ok here is my update......The car has now been painted three different times, the first came out way to orange the second was way to light and now the ****er looks green What the **** chevy. The pictures below were taken today right after i picked up the car from the dealer. There was also two huge chips in the door that were not there when the car was dropped off.
