    You just have to pull the factory one off and replace it. It is easy. Should take like 15 minutes.

    I replaced mine in a 2000 Z28 with the SLP SS model. My (car) fastner holes did not aline with the SLP model. I had to buy new fastners (auto zone) and drill my SLP grill to fit the exsisting holes in the car (not a really big deal). Might be a Z28 thing may and not be your case. I purchased a fastner remover years ago for door panels and the like. It has really came in handy and cheap (auto zone). Looks like a screwdrive with two prong fork on the end. Made getting the old grill out a out neater. I have read others just yank. I didn't care to chance any collateral damage. Good luck

    When I swapped the bowtie grille on the 99 SS I had, we carefully pulled it off the front. Then since they supplied double-sided adhesive, I cleaned the bumper really good. Once it was good and dry (hair dryer), we applied the supplied adhesive tape, lined it up and stuck it on. Took about 45 minutes to do a good job. The looks made it worth the effort.

    Not including the plastic clips, mine actually had two nuts holding the grille on the bumber. I couldn't reach the nuts without removing the front bumper. It took about 15-20 to carefully remove the front bumber and it was a breeze after that. Well worth the time and effort.

    Just took mine off! Their are 3 fasteners along the top of the grill. One directly above CAMARO and two at the edges of C and O of CAMARO.

    Thanks. The new ss grill did not align with the factory holes. I drilled into the NEW grill. Why would they sell the grill that needs to be modified? Well looks good once its on and thats all that matters!
