How is the difficulty for a solo install? I'm a complete novice to any type of auto work but the hobby will start with the Camaro.

I don't mean to be intruding into your business, but isn't AR business, is making LT headers for different cars, so why are you making LT Headers for them?

Thanks!

The driver's side isn't done being welded but the welds on the other side do look good. Take that from a Certified Welding Inspector (AWS)

How bout some pics from the topside. Are these going to install without having to lift the engine?

Yes they do and they are the best on the market for these LS motors. Its kind of hard for them to build a set without having a 2010 camaro. Thats why we are working together to try and get the first set mocked up. Josh(my partner) is the best in the business when it comes to fabrication. His welds look like a roll of dimes!

Thanks for the honest answer. Somehow that escaped me that they don't have a Camaro.
Let's look at it this way, The BEST header manufacture is asking and trusting you guys to help them out.
