Cool GM Accessory Grille for CAMARO

Here's a picture I did showing a CAMARO LT with RS Package featuring the Left Side ( Passenger ) illustrating what the Accessory Grille may look like ( if done in "Silver or Chrome" ) along side the Factory Grille on the right side ( Driver ) to give a comparison.

Nice work. Thanks. I'm still on the fence about which look I like better.

good comparison, but i just dont like that type of grille, the "criss-cross" style just comes off as cheap IMHO.

now if we had a billet grille comparison...

i definitely like the passenger side grille more than the driver side one. it would be nice though if the driver side grille had a chrome look to it.

I've known since the Accessories pic came out that I was definitely interested in the alternate grille. I think it looks great.

I really want to see it in person first. I remember considering that chrome piece for the Cobalt grill until I saw one in person. It was way too much chrome.

I agree .... Too much chrome on the front end and it starts to look like something out of a Mel Gibson "Mad Max" movie! I think, personally, I would stick to just the Accessory Grille or have the original painted Gunmetal Grey Metallic instead. Just like Bumblebee !

The silver car is just a photshop I did. It seems that it would be hard to make a grille to fit like that but I'm sure the aftermarket will eventually have something close.

Here is the picture from the GM Accessories Option List for the 2010 Camaro. Shown is an example of the Optional Grille that will be available from your local dealer. Probably will be easy to install yourself, unless painting is required?
