I know I know, the paint is not going to hold up on the bolts. I actually touched them up after tightening them since they scuffed a little bit.
Not necessarily true. As long as your not taking them off and on all the time they should hold up just fine.
Here is mine after I installed it and no touch up was done just went slow tightening them down.

Also I added splash guards to the front will do the rears when I get ZL1 rockers.

Nice job. Looks really good, I did only the bracket ends and not the bar. I really like the red on the bolts. Maybe I'll try and match a red like the supercharger cover for my bolts. That should look nice. This was so easy to do, and I couldn't wait to show my husband. Although he said "how did you torque down the bolts, I don't have a torque wrench" oops I didn't that's how. He said 22 pounds so I'll borrow one and get that done.

Yeah, I really like the red bolts, that just may be the way I'll go. Here's a pic of the cover, we'll call it the "before" shot.

Next time I go by Home Depot I'll see if they got a spray paint color really close to my cover color. Unless somebody already knows the answer to my question. Please post if you do! Thank you

I would use automotive paint from AutoZone or pep boys or somewhere. It will hold up better under the hood than normal spray paint.

The black paint I used on the brackets is for BBQ Grills, dries in 15 minutes and can take some serious heat. Also used it on my stainless splitter washers. Now you don't even see them. Only red spray paint colors for heat are probably caliper paints. I'll check that out. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1371526726.391321.jpg

Finally got my car off the ground, which was a bigger feat than installing parts. Installed CAI, Apex race scoop, washer bottle relocator, LED DRL's, planning to replace brake lines tonight!

Still down due to a rejection sticker; parts are still in Florida. One can only hope they will arrive soon.

Left a gallon of milk in the trunk in the airport parking lot. Went on a 4 day trip. Came back to a disaster. The milk exploded. Spent all day completely gutting out the trunk and back seat. Shampooed and washed everything. Too much excitement for me!

Lesson learned. Don't forget you have milk in your trunk.

Were the cops waiting for you? A Camaro left at an airport parking lot....hmmm.....the stench of what passerbys must of assumed could only be one thing....hmmm... Like Jeremy Clarkson, Host of BBCs TOP GEAR, always like to say; "ONLY TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE DRIVE CAMARO'S: DRUG DEALERS AND MURDERERS.

Will do, I already installed the inner fender back on that side, but can show you what it looks like from the front.
Yes, doing these brake lines:

Like those Lambo doors. Also the way he changed the rims to black. Is that Plasti-dip? Looks really sharp.

Looking over the JDP Color Changing Halo Package and the Grille Lighting Packages. Really only want the Red Halos and Red Grille LED Strips. Every time I look at Deke736's AGM ZL1 with a similar setup, Wow, I Love It. I'll think this over tonite and probably place my order in the morning. Here's my favorite pic of Deke736 AGM ZL1
