Heritage Grill Installed
 
3 Attachment(s)
Installed my custom painted heritage grill today. Not a difficult install at all. Gary's Customs did the paint. He did an absolutely awesome job. It matches my car perfectly. I can't say enough about how great this looks on the car. I just need to install the SS emblem. Thanks Gary.

Looking good man !!!!!!! Thanks for the order.

That looks amazing! Did Gary paint the center black as well or is the center the way it came stock?

I LOVE this Grill!! I want one but can't afford it right now! It really does add something to the look!

The center is just plain black plastic. The same type of material the stock grill is made from.

Looks good. For comparison, anyone have a large pic of an installed unpainted heritage?

I received my grille today. Will be installing it on Friday or Saturday. The car is IOM so it should be a good side by side with the OP.

got mine today and will be having it painted to install it. IOM is the best color!

Looks great. Mine is being delivered tomorrow. Going to the Dunes this weekend, so going to have to do it next week.
Do you know if you can put the SS or Bowtie on after you install it? I am undecided if I want to put anything back on it. If I decide to put back on later, just wondering if I will need to pull the whole front clip again.
Also, how long it take? I want to do it after work on day next week.

Wow, those pics of the IOM with the grill are beautiful!!!

The install was not difficult. I had my 11 year old son help me out. Once I got all of the bolts out I just reached up from inside the passenger wheel well and unpluged the wire harness. The front fascia just slid right off. It's not very heavy. I laid it on a blanket and removed the stock grill. I would say it took me an hour and a half taking my time and following all of the instructions. I too am undecided about putting anything back on the grille. I may just find some way to install the small red SS emblem and go with that.

Anyone install the grille on a V6 I would like to see what it looks like with the V6 bumper before I order mine from Gary.

Thanks

Installed mine on Monday and got around to taking a pic today. Not sure how well it will show up in the pic as I did not paint anything and left it black. I am trying to tone down my silver ice paint anywhere I can. Toughest part of the install was figuring out where and how to attach the red SS. We had to trim the plastic tabs that went through the factory grill and use some aircraft bonding glue, like JB Weld, to secure on back side. It came out perfect for me.

I couldn't get the link to work to your picture...

Mine just arrived from Gary. It looks great out of the box. I will get it installed late next week. Thanks Gary.

thedonkeyslayer 02-19-2010 09:05 PM

How much are you guys paying for this grill?

It is $238 shipped (unpainted) on gmpartsdirect.com, is this a good price?

I haven't even ordered or purchased a camaro yet, but I read that this grill is going to start being produced (and only available) with a predefined cutout/space for the bowtie. I like it w/o the bowtie, so I figured I would just buy it now...
