I would also love to get some measurements of the front bumper so I can get a no-drill license plate holder started.

Good idea! I'm not putting holes in this bumper. I'll have to see if someone can come up with a bracket that moves it, like I've seen from SLP in the past.

I already found someone who is willing to make them. They currently make them for other cars. He needs the following measurements (probably one set for the LT/LS and one set for the SS):

"Hold a bubble level to ground and measure the bumper angle on vertical plane. Use a common protracter o measure included angle across the center of the grille on the horizontal."

If someone can get me those, we can at least get a prototype started.

Perhaps also we could get some measurements over to these nice folks to get a head-start on some Concept-style after market stripes (incase GM sticks with the short ones)

Just a thought....

Yeah, we always like pictures! Just make sure you request one in Imperial Blue Metallic or Cyber Gray. We've already seen the rest of the colors.

The factory front plate bracket on my Cobalt doesn't drill into the bumper cover - it mounts up undereith somehow. I don't think you guys need to worry about this.

Thumbs up

i know that the Solstice front plate braket attaches through the hexagon shaped openings in the grille. in fact the front plate bracket has the same texture as the grille too, nice little touch there

Captive Test Fleet cars are 'saleable' cars-- meaning that while they will have retro-fits done on them -- they'll eventually be sold as used vehicles.

The cars you are seeing on the road today are Non-saleables -- meaning that

*sob* - -they will meet an unfortunate end.................

They have many pre-production parts -- they've had a lot of tough and rough miles put on them........and a lot of the interior panels do not have the final 'graining' applied........

Scott, I've got an idea what to do with the "non-saleables"!

Since they're going to the crusher......GM should consider selling the "remains" at ChevyMall, ie; a pic. of the new Camaro, with an actual piece of a Camaro enclosed in the frame...or something to that effect.

(its late, and it might be just my mind thinking crazy. )

I will step up to the plate and take one and save it from the crusher. I will let you GIVE it to me, so you don't have to "SELL" it.

I am willing to take one for the team

BTW, I already ordered Black 2SS, Inferno Orange interior, RS package, Ground effects. I order this thing long before the BLACK was shown on here, I was excited to see "my" car actually put together (exterior).
