So my dealer tells me that my GM Performance badge in the engine compartment is not included on any new production camaro, only on the initial ones. I find that hard to believe. I called GM Customer service.

This is true, I read that's because GM Performance Division was dissolved in the bankruptcy.

Thanks. Unfortunately, it's the only pic I have of it. Went right in the garage after I got it for winter storage. First time it gets above 50, I'll have more to post.

Actually, it was a marketing decision. We want to market Chevy, not GM. After all, it's a Chevy Camaro, not a GM Camaro! In addition, we did some surveys. The BK tainted GM's reputation with many consumers but, believe it or not, the impact to the Chevy nameplate was far less severe. Hence, the GM badges came off. First the chicklets and then the performance division badge. Mine was a mid-November build and has the performance badge and no chicklets. Guess the plant just used up the stock until both ran out.

Thanks Garrett

How long did it take you? Did you keep the Calipers on the vehicle while you did it? It looks like from your earlier post you brushed it on?
I took the calipers off of the car but I left the brake line connected for the first two coats so I could get the back as well as the front of calipers. Then I put the calipers on for the final coats.
You must wait 15 minutes between each coat. You also only have a total of about four hours to use paint once mixed with hardener. After that it is no longer useable it becomes to hard to brush on anymore.
