To me that means more than simply buying a cover from GM.
Great job Ruffian118 I would be darn proud of that. And I agree when you do one of these your self you just love your Camaro that much more with your own personal touch!

Looks great!! But I hate to tell you you're selling yourself short..the engine is 312hp, not the 304 advertised by Chevy for 2010.

Yeah, I know - but I had to go with how it was originally rated/advertised (and what all her docs say). But we know what she's really got . And thanks to you and all above for the compliments!

You can use pin stripe material, or just lay some tape over the area and carefully take a razor to it and cut out what you want to paint. i might add the pinstripes too.. if i dont do racing stripes on it.
