the lakewood one is silver, I bought it cause is looks like the engine cover. It looks like it matches real well.

Does anybody make a strut tower brace for a 2012 ss? I've seen a lot of ones (like BMR) that only work on 2010s.

But you have to pre-drill your holes and thread them if you have a coupe.

The factory one will bolt right in on your '12 coupe.

Yeah, the 2012 coupe has pre-drilled holes. Not positive, but I believe the 2011's do as well.

Dumb question, Can you still get the engine cover off after installing the brace? Looks like there may be enough room for the stock GM brace, but what about the BMR?

Please take a look at our LSR strut tower brace:


Quote:
Designed, tested, manufactured, and assembled all in-house. Welded from thin-wall chromoly steel tubing and mild steel brackets. Designed to increase front suspension effectiveness by increasing the chassis' stiffness. This reduces the unwanted compliance in the strut towers leading to vague steering and uninspiring suspension performance. Powdercoat finish and polished stainless steel logo plate for looks and corrosion resistance.

Note: Fits 2011 and Up Camaros built after October 2010 only.
Let me know if I can help you with anything! Forum members do get a discount.

I have a question on the install of a bmr brace. After you mount the top strut mounts with four holes should you have to push the extensions down so you can mount them or is mine bent?

My Camaro was built Nov/10 and has the attachment points.

You'll see them right away when you open the hood. I have considered putting bolts in there to at least keep the threads clean.
