Nice Mods so far. I'll be following this since I too have a 2LT/RS but a 2010. Still excited to see what you do

Ya, and I looked and looked at that and I wanted my car to be as clean as possible. I could have gone bigger, but I am not racing this thing and I really wanted to have a clean car that I could just drive and have fun. And the V6 is *no* slouch. But with the V6 / RS package I love the look of the car.

YES! I would love to get together with some locals. I have been following the SD thread in the local section but it seemed every time they were doing something I had more important things to do that day.... totally sucks!

And back to the mods...

I am in with the majority that front license plate is BAD. But having a 2014 Camaro you quickly find most of the "10 an up" items will not work on the 14. I found the mounting option I liked the best and it turns out the maker is local to me. After a few emails/calls/visits Gilbert had a working model for the front plate bracket. Since the front end is different measurements had to be made, parts tried on and then tweaked until a perfect fit first-ever 2014 version was made for my car, with the use of my car. All in all it took 3 or was it 4 visits for a finished product.

So if you have are looking for a way to have a way to mount in case the cops pull you over give Gilbert from Eliminator Bracket a call. I can say he is a truly a good guy!

I am really really happy with this addition - unless you are looking for it you really do not see it. And the mount and my plate stays in the trunk ready for the cops... "Oh sorry officer, I was just at a car show and must have forgot to put it back on, give me 10 seconds and it will be right on!" lol, wonder if that will work


Before:


And different views of the after minus the plate mount:




And with the plate holder on - minus the plate itself:



The plate really takes 10 seconds most to get on and 10 seconds most to get off. And when it is on - it is SOLID. Not moving around and just pure quality.

Plate braket is nice. Notice on the 2014 the factory plate braket doesn't need to be drilled into bumper like the 2014s and earlier, it just snaps into bottom grill with two predrilled anchor bolt holes already in grill.

Loving the looks I get on my 2014, even from older camaro owners. The halos now being the dtr lights gets attention. Only mod I have done was getting LED footwell lighting installed. Thought about caliper covers, but seems pointless unless changing brakes themselves.

I almost forgot the one thing I really like on the 14's is the lighting re-wiring they did. Halos as the DRLs and the lower lights as the fogs they should be is perfect. Would I assume correctly then that the light switch inside has the fog light button and they're controlled manually? Do your halos stay on at night too?

That is how I wish I could wire mine to work. Halos basically on all the time (wouldn't want them off at night so only wiring them to the DRL circuit wouldn't work) and fogs switched when I want them, preferably through the factory fog light button which is not to be found on a '12 1LT such as mine.
