Starting a thread for my car. I will add more info and probably rewrite some of this later.

My car was assembled on 2/9/2011. It was in quality assurance for approximately 6 weeks. When the car was finally delivered to the dealership, I was stuck out of town on work for another week.

3/28/11 - Here are the pics my dealer sent to my phone.

4/1/11 - At the end of the week I got back in to town late in the day and drove right to the dealership from the airport to check out my new ride. I would need to come back the next day to do paper work.

4/2/11 - I did all the paperwork and picked up my 2SS Convertible Camaro.
As I did the paperwork there was a group of sales guys checking out my car. Since it was a customer order they could not take it out for a spine.

All prepped under the tent.

Before I left the dealership I snapped a couple pics of my traded in coupe and my new Convertible.

In Dec 2012 I got dual vented fenders and installed them... Later I removed the rest of the side stripes too.
