Thank - you. I think they look great in black on certain color Camaro's (IOM being one of them).

Again nice mod .


Thank - you. I try. :mrgreen: ........They are not easy to get off, but after the first one they did get easier. Secret is to get the top two tabs out part way and then work around the
lamp from the outside using a plastic trim removal tool and pry them out. GENTLY. working around the whole bezel, NEVER forcing anything. All 4 were out in under 10 minutes.

Easy mod. Did you look at my list and see if there were any that you have not done yet.

44 MODS......... :hail: ...........I need to see your list so that I can find a few more for me...... :thumbsup:

Do I get to count each billet item (under the hood) as one mod each or do all the under hood billet pieces count as one mod........... :shrug:

Sure hope this spoiler arrives in better shape than that last box showed. ......... :bashstick:


I'm lazy when it comes to posting my mods list ... I'm having a show banner made so I had to add up all the mods I have done to the car .
Now what I call a mod some may not .. anything that "Didn't" come on my car when I bought it I call a " Mod ".
I'll write it up and you guys tell me if its a mod or not .

Sounds good. Create the list, start a thread and we will all chime in. Might have some good ones that I still want to do yet. :cheers:

I plan to count mine up tonight and see what I can count and not count.

I will post it up later tonight or tomorrow too.

Thank - you............took me a year and three tries to finally decide I was winning this battle. Take your time and work them slowly. I only released the top two and worked it from there. They did all come out without breaking any tabs......... :cheers:

Thank - you, paint them your self, can of promotor paint and black spray paint. Less than 10 bucks and you have a new mod completed.
