I know this is an old one, but it just helped me make up my mind to install a Heritage grill in my 2010 2SSRS.

Not a bad job for a one-handed guy.

LOL Thanks.

I mostly wanted to show everyone it can be done with regular hand tools.

Post pics when you're done.

I did mine Saturday,the directions that come with it are not the best. The hardest part was prying the old grille out of the fasica. The instructions say nothing about having to remove the energy absorber,either.

About how long does the install take for a normal person doing it as a one man job? I just ordered a heritage and need to figure out when to do the install

Just did my ZL1 grill I have had sitting around for over a year (amazing what can't get done when you have kids). Anyways, wanted to say thanks to the OP for a great write up. Took me about 2 hours to do it, but I didn't jack up the car or remove the wheels, so it took me a bit more time to get to the bolts in the fender wells.

If you take your time and are super careful.. 4 hours max... I've got it down to an hour to remove and reinstall the front fascia, with out swapping the grille if that gives you an idea.

Haha, found your video on youtube and used it to help with the apex install this weekend. Didn't even realize you were a C5 member.

Thanks again for the video, albeit old now but still very helpful!

I love the Heritage Grille . They should have put them on all non-ZL1 Camaros (IMO) . Fun install,but easier when you remove the front tires.

^ No doubt, I scroll through these forums for when I have funds/time to do the mods so I save them in a bookmark folder. Hit a spot where I was lost on the three vert bolts on side. Watched the vid, boom took 5 seconds, luckily I had the 16" extension as well hahaName:  WP_20131003_002.jpg
