Apologize if I missed it, but anyone done the gun metal powdercoat on the 45th? I'd like to add a red stripe similar to the centennial 'vette.

Powdercoat the rims you mean? In the grey color of the stripe? If that's what you're asking then yes there is a guy who's done that here on C5.

Credit to doubletrouble for pulling the trigger on a good idea! They're powdercoated to nearly match the grey stripe color. Except they are slightly shiny, not matte.
Again, credit to doubletrouble, looks great! He said it only ran him $272 with tax for all four rims!

Has anyone done ambient lighting on the front dash trim to match the doors? Thanks.

So our 45th was delivered on 2/17 after getting word it came off the line on 2/14, wow is all I can say that it was quick! My wife and son collected it in the afternoon so here's a few pictures to share and to hold me over until May when I'm home on vacation next! The only thing we asked the dealer not to do was drill & install the front license plate bracket as we have a different one on its way and we bought a set of GM Camaro heavy duty rubber all-weather floor matts and they are in already. The pile of parts for mods at the house will be installed soon I hope.

Enjoy.

At dealer prep:

Awaiting to be tucked away in the 3rd bay of the garage until better weather:

definitely not like a black, but they do show up. i'm not sure how the rumor got out, but CFM is not a magic color that hides any imperfection by any means.

one nice thing about CFM is that it masks dust quite well though.

I want to do it so bad. It's one of the first things I noticed. My roommate seems to think it'll be an issue when driving at nice, but even if it was I wouldn't care, haha, it'd look sooooooo good with that light behind the dash trim. I want to look into it more.

Glad you finally got it and are behind the wheel!

Good move not having the dealer drill your bumper. That'd be an awful sight!

Was messing around with my new camera, thought I'd share. Yes, they're my winter wheels :p. I'll have to get more pics when I have the summers back on.
