You will need a new hood, fenders, front and rear since the rear tail lights are cut into the rear 1/4's, new headlights they are a new design, tail lights, new bumper supports, new trunk lid, ect... Plan on a good $4000-$5000 worth of parts figure $2000 on headlights alone if you go with the RS headlamps.

Well.. It would still be more money to trade the current camaro in and get the new one.. Plus i would do i ZL1 conversion right now... But i looked into it, and i got completely lost.. :/

Anybody out there that could maybe help me with the ZL1 conversion in means of what i would have to buy, what the rough cost would be, and paint and such?


My current Camaro is a 2SS Non-RS, 2010, Black.

What's different about the fenders? They look the same to me. The rear quarters look the same to me also. If you think that those new tail lights are cut into the quarters, you haven't looked closely at a 2010-2013. I say he's going to need new front and rear fascias, new upper and lower grilles, new trunk lid and spoiler, new third brake light, new hood, new hood insert, new fog lights, new rear lighting harness and maybe new head lights. He didn't say if he wanted to go 2014 RS or not, but if he does, it's probably going to be a lot more complicated. The new RS headlights are definitely different. He can probably use an adapter harness for the head lights. The new RS tail lights are LEDs, so that might require even more extensive harness and BCM changes. Nobody's going to know what's really involved until the parts are out and somebody actually attempts it. At this point only GM knows what they are really changing.

LOL IMO the finders are the same, the bumper is not, and all the parts that go on the bumper is not the same, the rear sheet metal is all the same, but if you add the Z28 spoiler you may need a new trunk sheet metal, the tail lights fit the rear now its the bumper that is in the way.

You haven't looked closely at the trunk lid. The 2014 lid doesn't have that recessed area between the tail lights, that the 2010-2013s have. The 2014 tail lights might still work with the 2010-2013 lid, but if the goal was to make your car look like a 2014, you would need a trunk lid also.

Not only the recessed area but the curve at the inside corner of the lights are different. it will definately need a new trunklid or some bodywork...

Don't think anyone else caught that - nicely done.

I would love to have that..

P.S. if it is of any matter, i have a 2010 2SS/non-rs

What about the fender flares so we could run a wider tire?

To change the front all you need is the front bumper and the head lights . there is no need to change fenders its a direct bolt on... for the rear you need to change the hood, back bumper and the tail lights.
