    Painted Bumper Support Mod

    Ok F-body guys here is a very cheap and easy appearance mod you can do to your engine, that will make it look much better.

    Tools needed:

    1. One can of spray paint color of your choice. Mine was Gloss black.
    2. Flathead screwdriver
    3. 10mm wrench
    4. Pliers

    There are five plastic pins in the front. Just pry the pins up a little with your screwdriver and pull them out with your pliers. There are two bolts in the middle and two nuts on each side that need removing. On the Trans am you must have your headlights up to take out the four bolts. Take the support out, clean it up and paint away. If you are real pickie you can sand and primer. While you have the support out its a good time to clean-up the area. Let it dry, re-install and enjoy your new appearance mod

    Before-





    After-

    I almost painted mine. I did paint the airlid base, airlid, back of the headlights, fender wells, intake, oil dipstick and the pink aux cover on the right side by the fuses, in gloss black also.

    IT really helps the overall appearance of the engine bay. I also did the head light backs and the brackets.




    P.S. here is a pic of Fury' s also.

    Instead of painting, I added the JAAM RAM lower plenum. Not sure about functionality but, looks cleaner. I don't think they make these for the Camaro but, I found it on WS6store.com
