Just ordered my heritage grille. I am planning on painting it satin black myself... any tips?? I was going to sand it down a little bit, give it a coat of primer and then a few coats of satin black. Ordering my sparks SS emblems soon too.

I am ordering SS emblems to go in place of the bowtie, so the bowties will be gone!

Nice looking set up but a few questions?

Nice looking set up. I have a few questions because I am looking to upgrade to 22's but want as much meat on them as possible.

Did you have any issues with rubbing?
Did you have to do any mods to get the 315's to fit?
What size are your front tires?
In retrospect, could you have gone with a larger tires (more meat) if so which ones?

Thanks,

Eric

No rubbing, no mods to fit the 315s and the front tires are 265/30/22.
315s is as wide as you can go on the Camaro, unless you do some major mods to make bigger ones fit.
