The more I see the Synergy Green the more I like it. It would have been an option for me if the SS was available in 2010 when I bought my Camaro. Great looking car!

I'm still trying to find a Synergy Green w/ no strips- does anybody have a solid green Camaro?

ur opinion count synergy green owners...i am going to paint a redline around my wheel edges. i have 2 test stripes, the rear is 1/8" and looks etched, and the other is 1/4" and similar to SLP ZL wheel look...i have been torn, favoring something in the middle such as 3/16" many thanks...since color on the car matters i posted this in this thread...

1/8" stripe...more suttle...but maybe too thin...


1/4" stripe...prob too thick, but more like modern SLP ZL wheels


i considered the tires, but have had 2 quotes 1 at 500/tire(new nitros) and the other were perellis about 330/tire..this is more affordable and tasteful. i favor a retro theme, but on a budget..

other note, i am painting my calipers syn green as well, with a custom stencil of 69 camaro script and either brembo logo or SS (fender badge logo) i had a Z06 so i like the model name more..will post pics..getting 69 retro fender camaro and SS badges put on tomorrow, as well as SLP SS retro badge..i have blackout, but prob wont use it since i am painting rear diffuser syn green. so that black may not work...installing a NLP rear spoiler and yes syn green...can u say makeover?

I like what you are doing to personalize your ride. As for the red on the rims, do you have a pic a little further away to get a better idea? Also, if you are looking to paint your calipers, check out this paint kit from G2. I used them on my calipers. http://www.g2usa.com/brake_caliper_paint.shtml

Thanks. I'm interested in this also. Did you get the 5 leds with the 3 chips? Yours looks just right for the brightness.

to all syn green owners, has anyone noticed any variance in their paint on their doors not the normal flop with angles and light, but rather a vertical stripped look that looks brighter and darker..i think i have a paint qaulity issue. had my car just over 30 days, thought it was shadowing at first, but had a trusted painter verify there was a defect in the painting process...appears to have less base coat in some areas. had service manager, sales manager, and body shop manager verify this...they are contacting a GM rep since it looks like both sides of the car or the doors at the minimun will need repainted possibly...again this isnt flop or a diff with diff substrates (plastic and urathene, vs metal surfaces) showing diff color i can live with that...ahaha i have 2 corvettes over 5 years, that goes with territory..this is a real issue concerning the paint application itself..please PM me if anyone has had a similar issue..waiting on GM response..may be a long process...hopefully not...i am keeping the car, but this is disappointing..i am true GM fan and happy with the car ...any comments are welcome will post some pics...this is really seen best in direct sunlight, not as appearent up close or in low light...
many thanks,
matt in NC
i have looked on warranty area there was a TSB for diff paint variance but it was more about the plastic vs metal and angles etc...my car was produced in mid-august 2010.

Matt,

My SGM SS was also built the 1st week of SGM production. It was "on hold" for several weeks at Oshawa. No reason given. When my SGM Camaro arrived, I checked paint quality carefully and didn't see any paint flaws. Last weekend, I took some pictures of it in the direct sunlight with my digital camera. I too see noticeable dark & light areas in the doors. I thought it was the camera at 1st. In non-direct sunlight, the dark & light areas are not visible. This definitely is an issue, but I'm not a fan of moving away from factory paint. Please use the attached photo and keep me posted on GM's response.

Thanks,

Dave

thats exactly how mine looks...

hi dave,
that is exactly how mine looks vertical stripping or varying shades of green in the door, esp the drivers door, some of the quarter panels too..i sent u a PM as well so we can exchange further info..i have a feeling our cars were made possibly about the same time...i dont know if this was limited to SGM or metallics for 2011 start of production. mine was one of the first 2011s producted...i am going to another dealership today that i know has 3 and take some pics as well..see what i can observe...if anyone else has SGM regardless of year...please observe ur sides or door from about 6 feet away and look at dave's pic..there will brighter and darker areas of the basecoat..it wont be even either...looks like almost like a spray can of paint was taken up and down on the doors..please post ur pics here..we may have found a prob in the process or paint, in the lot of paint etc...thanks for everyones cooperation..if u up near the car, or in indirect light this is very hard to notice...it seems worst on the doors..my hood, trunk deck, and plastic pieces did not seem to have any issue with this...
thanks to all, if there is an issue, its important to identify it and get it fixed, its a true warranty issue..i am hoping to hear from a GM rep via my dealership service dept this week...
thanks to all,
matt in NC
