Mine aren't thought about doing it myself but that would be too much work.

Tough to see, but the it is by far a much duller finish inside the engine bay then outside. My car was produced April '09.

Mine was built in May 2009, and not cleared under the hood.

This for the early models. It is not that they are "not" painted, it is that they don't have the 'exterior' look, with a nice clearcoat.

It's a known fact that the early models were not done that way, owners started mentioning it was important at GM meetings with Camaro owners like we had here in Chicago and they listened and started painting them and clear coating them. I saw a few of them looking at mine at a National Car Show after I took it apart and had it repainted at a considerable cost back in 2010 !
