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.

This was so easy! Do yourself a favor and take off the wheels first and fold away the fender liners to get easy access to all the bolts. That 7mm needs to be a 1/4 socket.

If you are new to putting the Camaro on jackstands. Read the threads on the topic. Really.

Took the opportunity to throw on the CAI, ADM scoop, and do the washer bottle relocation mod.

No badges on mine. I like the clean look. And I took off the ugly gold bowtie in the rear. I did leave the little red SS on the right rear.

Thanks again Op.

Just installed my heritage grill and the video was a big help. I would have had a hard time finding those 7mm bolts without it. Thanks for the help.

This is a great DIY. Personally, I like the stock grill on black SS, but if I were going with something different this thread would surely be very handy.
Thanks, for sharing the knowledge.
