Thank you! Nice! what color are you changing your chrome too? Black to match your stripes? Chrome just looks cheap to me, I've never been much of a fan of it

Yea changing it all to black. I haven't been much of a fan of the chrome either honestly maybe if my car was a diff color it would look better but idk. Also just realized you are getting the Aggressor 2! I'm so jealous I can't wait to see how it looks! I'm debating to either get the ZL1 front end of just get the GM GFX splitter along with a new upper and lower grill and calling it a day.

I agree, it depends on the color scheme of the car, sometimes chrome can look good, other times it just sticks out too much and looks super cheap. Thanks! I am really excited to get it on, it is supposed to ship out mid july, and if all goes as planned and it gets shipped out in time, I am hoping to get it painted and installed the week of July 22nd. Really you can't go wrong either way with those two options! The ZL1 bumper would look amazing on your car, but so would adding the splitter and new grilles

Thank you for the compliment, and I'm glad I could help! You've done tons of performance mods, that's awesome! How is running since adding all the performance mods to it? I am probably sticking to mods more on the cosmetic side of things for a while, at least until I get a second car to drive as my DD. Brembo brakes, ported TB, and Vmax black ice-olator are as far as I am wanting to go (for now)

One of the nicer grills. Hate to lose the front bowtie and RS emblems though or is there something available for it.

You can put the front bowtie and rs emblem on the heritage grille. The front bowtie has a "landing pad" they make for the heritage grille and the RS emblem should attack just like on the stock one (I think). I just know you can get it on because I've seen it. It's really personal preference because most, including myself, like the look without all the badging.

Thanks, I love this grille! I can't wait to get it on! yeah, you can put the bowtie/RS emblem on, you can do it with a landing pad or there are a few DIY methods I've read up on. I originally planned on keeping both the bowtie and the RS emblem, but I'm not sure what I'm gonna do anymore. I'll probably experiment with both looks and see what I like best

Yes, definitely post pics after install to see it on car of same color helps a lot.

I agree. Before I got the grille I was sure I was gonna keep the bowtie/RS emblem on, but the more I look at pictures, the more I like it without them. It definitely is more sleek with no emblems. I'm gonna have to try them both out and see which one I like best

I will for sure post pictures! I just can't decide if I want to install the grille now, or wait until I get the new bumper in 3 weeks...I don't really want to take off the bumper twice in 1 month, but I am also eager to get the grille on.

Haha it's tempting! But I think I'm gonna wait, I like the idea of being able to see the new fascia and the grille on at the same time...that way it will be a more dramatic change

Yeah I believe it is plastic. If it isn't, it's definitely plastic-like because it feels/looks like plastic

Thank you! My number one goal is to mod tastefully. I don't want my Camaro looking like a ricer, or a jumble of a bunch of different thoughts and ideas
