If you want I can post all the part numbers needed tomorrow when I get back to the dealership
I'd definitely be interested in knowing the part number for the backing plate!

And thanks for this DIY....will come in handy!!

Whether it's the bow tie or one of the myriad different SS emblems out there. It just looks like something is missing without it. Kinda like a face without a nose.

Yeah I'm still not sure if I'm gonna leave it empty... I like having a bowtie on the front of the car... but the stock one is too big for that grille IMO..

Glad you liked it.

Yeah I had forgotten about those I wished I had ordered one and had it to show how it works.... Thanks for posting the part numbers.

I had to chime in with my two cents on your install video because I have my own small bodyshop...and as such, I work on today's cars as well as the old ones. First, let me commend you on making the video while turning the bolts! Nice job! Second, I am glad to see this because it shows folks that these cars are a PITA sometimes if you are not familiar with how they are built. I definetly would remove the front wheels and the fender liners just to make it easier...I always do anytime you try to R&I a front fascia. The only tool that might make this easier is a small "panel popper" for the plastic two-piece retainers. This front fascia is relatively simple compared to alot of cars, but the real joke is the amount of different clips holding these cars together these days! Some are simular, but most are specific to the car make...and alot of them break...and usually you end up having to get em at the dealer...imagine that...LOL. Very nice job...enjoyed watching it.

ya great vid. my heritage grill should be here today. not sure if i can drive it from the back garage(not heated) to the front garage (heated) with the snow that we have. both garages have a little incline so that would suck if i drove it out and could not get it into either again. lol anyways i will be using you vid sometime, actually after watching it once i should be alright now. pretty straight forward, after watching your vid it seems like i have done it already.

Awsome video. Thanks OP, so much! Love the comments.

I am taking the wheels off since one foot of snow will keep my SS off the road for a while anyway.

Also this will be a good time to put in the CAI and ADM Scoop.

Thank you for the video. I did it the hard way in that I didn't jack the car up or remove the wheels. If you remove three of the five push pins in the fender well they can be pulled down far enough to get the job done. Also, while you're undoing the four bolts on the passenger side, it's a good time to disconnect the light harness. If you do forget to plug it back in after you get done, you can pull the iner fender well back enough to reach up and plug the harness back in. It is a reach though! Thank you again for the video.

Glad the video helped.

Yeah doing it on the ground would be tricky for sure.
