Looking good! I like the SS emblem on the interior bezel near the shifter, I haven't seen that done before. Way to represent the AGM!

added the heritage grille finally. Not to bad to install. Didnt remove the front wheels or jack it up. All the hardware was easily (ok well there were a few curse works haha) accessible.



Next up is the SS (sparks) logo).

Hey, Ryan, looks great! I agree cpoboats, the small things are the best! I actually used to live in Carmel, Indiana, so it's cool to see another Central Indiana Camaro owner on the site!! I've been to Avon quite a few times for marching band also.. very great area! Love your Camaro, btw.
