    nice car you have, but the ricer stuff has to go, simple always look cleaner on these cars. They never really came out with a tasteful set of aftermarket tail lights for the camaro, I like the halo headlights in black though, but some even feel those are ricey but I like em and thats what counts to me.
    The fbody community is very strict about what is "cool" and not on these cars as you can see LOL! but in reality a spoiler like that ruins the lines of the car design and looks wise. Just my .02 cents
    RS package is pretty clean and simple and would be a good choice like you said. My 98 Z28 came from the factory with a package thats almost like on the 97 rs with rear spoiler lip, side skirts, and rear lower valance but no front lower air splitter and seems a little more rare there are no other factory ls1's like that around this area and I like the kit.

    Yeah. I noticed how everybody is all heated because of the stuff I didn't even do! But at any rate, I would kill to have the factory spoiler back at least. That is the toughest thing to find. I haven't seen a black z28 with the rs body kit around k-town ever yet, so they are semi rare-ish i guess. The kit suits my taste completely. As for the taillights, right now there are bigger fish to fry and I don't have a real reason to get new ones. As long as the black outs stay on I think I should be okay.

    And at everybody that keeps telling me to get a SS spoiler:
    I simply CAN'T. There are holes from the factory RS spoiler that I don't want to be an eye sore. I don't have the funds to fill it in, so suggestions like that are simply pushed aside. Find me an RS spoiler and i'll buy that.

    I have never seen one of those wings on a camaro up close. How do they attach differently than a SS spoiler?

    I like the covers I'm considering buying some myself. Black Altezza lights would have looked alot better that's just looks awful and the chances of you pulling up to a civic or altima with those is pretty high. There is no reason for the wing. It doesn't look bad, but someone might try to slam their door into you or key your car over. You never know what some redneck might do if he has a reason to be pissed off. Did they do any other ricer things to it?

    They painted some of the interior pieces yellow. Everybody seems to like that. But I think red would've been better. OR just none at all would be the best.

    Here is the RS spoiler:

    Here is the SS spoiler:


    As you can see the Rs spoiler is an edition to the stock wing. It is a 3-piece spoiler that simply attaches to the basic spoiler. It won't fit the lines of the SS spoiler because of the way it flares up in the center as seen above.

    I say take off that big spoiler and turn it into a shelf. It might make a nice spice rack. haha. I think the RS spoiler would look better, or an SS spoiler. could always be different and get a 97-97 SS spoiler?

    I have that same tail light assembly. I really wanted the Export OEM ones, but couldn't find them reasonable when I needed them.
    I get comments both ways..
    I like them, and it's my car so that's all that matters to me. I did the JDM black Halo's and a Manta stripe kit. I like the scheme overall with the tinted windows.
    But man, the chrome has to go. And I think Boeing is looking for that wing. A 727 can't be completed til they get it back.
    I guess that's sorta the kettle and the pot thing. But I honestly think I went about it tastefully. However that's just my opinion.

    Get rid of those tail lights. And that wing absolutely ruins the car IMO.
