Strut Tower Brace

I have a 2011 Camaro SS Coupe and want to add the the strut tower brace from GM but noticed (after buying it) that it won't fit 11 SS Coupe. I've seen a thread or 2 with a link to a site (or ebay) where an adapter kit is available. Anyone have that site?

Does anyone have a photo with the strut tower brace installed using this adapter kit? Curious to see what it looks like.

Sure and then some.... so the Strut itself does not have to come out?

I should have the kit in a week then it's off to the chrome shop. Once I have it installed I'll post some pics.

? So you do not have to remove the struts.
