In the last issue we gave our 2010 Camaro SS project car a makeover with some Anvil carbon-fiber parts and a splash of PPG paint over at Best Of Show Coach Works in Escondido, California. The new graphics really set our Camaro apart from the rest of the ’10s out there, but the stock Bow Tie-emblazoned grille just wasn’t making us all warm and fuzzy. We figure others, even some at GM, weren’t digging the stock grille either since Chevrolet offers a tasty alternative: their Heritage grille. With cleaner, and to us, more aggressive lines, it’s the way the Camaro should have looked when it rolled off the assembly line.
While the part just snaps in place of the stocker, the process of getting to the grille is a bit more complex and requires the nose of the Camaro be pulled off. Fortunately, it’s not rocket science and doesn’t require any specialized tools, so for that we have a GM engineer somewhere to thank.
