WANTED: How to Remove Grille

A lot of people are buying aftermarket grilles. Some are hesitating because they don't like the look of the grille with another grille in the background.

This is a very good point. The only extra grille you should have are the one in your backyard.

We need an instructional guide to removing the OEM grille. Get posting.

These are great responses. I appreciate the help, and I'm sure a long list of other Camaro5 members agree.

Now, this brings me to my next question.
