Anyone wonder how the 45th Anniversary edition looks with Black Splash Guards?

I was wondering that exact thing. Doesn't look too bad, but I would like to see some in Carbon Flash Metallic....

I could barely tell when installing them tonight.

My thoughts are, once you drive it in the rain, you can't tell at all.

Other thoughts were to just use some gray spraypaint and get the "overspray" on the splash guards to make the Carbon Flash Metallic.

By the way I researched the color. This color was used in 2008 on the Saturn Sky, so touchup paint should be available.

Isn't that the same color as black granite on the GMC trucks? Maybe not. But if you are going to do it right, I'd suggest just having them professionally painted by a trusted paint shop. Make it look like they belong there. But again, perhaps plain black wouldn't be that noticable.

I found this site from a pst on this forum. They have the Carbon Flash Metallic in an aerosol can. The paint code is GAR. I may get a can and see how it looks. I was thinking of painting my engine cover.

Be sure to post some pictures to see how it looks.

That site also has the new gray listed for the 2012 model. Ashen Gray.

Yes...it is the same color that GM has used on other models known as Black Granite Metallic...but the new name is throwing people off.
Apparently...Camaro owners are easily fooled by a name change. The 45th Anniversary Edition would look so much better in that super special Carbon Flash Metallic that only came on the 2008 Saturn Skye rather than that Black Granite Metallic that comes on every other Chevy Malibu and GM truck...lol.
