    "Sniper-Style" Bumper

    I recently installed a $200 "Sniper-style" front bumper cover made by KGS Engineering that wound up costing me over $1000 to install. The headlamp openings didn't extend to the front of the headlamps, the sides were wider than the front of the Camaro itself (this would've been fine if it were a wide body application), and the fog light openings weren't in front of the fog lights. The original manufacturer for the bumper was Extreme Dimensions. I contacted them to order the bumper 8 months ago and was told that it was discontinued because it didn't fit the Camaro properly. That's when I searched online for other companies that made the "Sniper" bumper and came across KGS. It's like the word, "Like" or "Style" can be used as an alibi for manufacturers to market poorly made replicas of things.

    95% Complete Front Bumper Cover Installation

    I brought the Camaro to AutoSport Bodyworks in Longwood, Florida and asked the shop manager to fill the space between the front bumper cover and the headlamps with fiberglass. He had the Camaro for about 6 months, and he just molded the bumper cover to the front left and right fenders and painted them. Now I have to take the Camaro to another body shop and have them fill in the spaces.
    I removed the projector lamps after I took this picture.

    Cat Fish vs. Shark

    I think it looks more like a shark. As in the fish, not the Hyundai.

    Looks weird w/out matching sides. Like it's missing something. A lot of something.

    And +1 on the rims.

    I'm not personally a fan, but good job on going through the effort to make it actually fit and look nice. I think you could pull it off and make it look like it fits even better if you got the sides to match.

    I didn't order a complete kit from Extreme Dimensions because the front bumper cover was discontinued at the time I ordered the rear bumper cover. The rear cover is from Extreme Dimensions. The front cover is from KGS Engineering. I still haven't decided which side skirts to install. I wanted to find simple, square ones, similar to the side skirts on GT1 and GT2 cars. Any suggestions?

    That sounds like a good idea. I haven't looked into body stuff in a long time though, so I don't know where you can get some without buying the whole thing.

    i think the center area is cool but take some sort of dremel-type device and cut off some from the corner areas and then hook up some sort of cai for the front to be functional (BIG ASS RAM AIR FTW!) and maybe switch back to stock rear bumper and getcha some like TT2's or ZO6's and roll out in style!

    try to shim the button tab in the middle of the bumper so it mates up with the hood...

    it isn't that bad but i don't like how it sticks out far at the very bottom... if it curved in a bit it would be tits...
