Is the GM Reconditioning black paint a GM dealer only item?

Good news and close hanging ours but decided to do everything and I mean everything imaginable before and glad. Once the front sheetmetal is attached things become a little more complicated.
Just some food for thought.....

Professional doing the paint and body ,I'm just a set of hands this weekend. I asked prior--6 of one ,1/2 a dozen of another as far as the front end goes to him. Getting assembled for final prep and paint--stripes. When it gets home from the booth it's coming back apart. More work but in the long run ties into our schedules better. Plus this car is retaining all of it's sheet metal, shims and fasteners. (bagged and labeled, pictured and diagramed)Think I read your car also started out rust free. My buddy's same quote, never took one down this clean. Usually re-doing someone's disappointment. I'm just stoked with the idea of having the engine in it , done. Then covering it all up. Many hours leaning over fenders. Going to be nice working on it off the lift with nothing in the way. Like working on something with a one piece tilt.
