I just realized I have some questions.

Does the CamAerobody come with installation instructions? Can you take some pics/scans if so?

What keeps the front fenders from flapping around? You've cut the "do not jack here" fender mounts off at the bottom of the stock Camaro fender, so I'm wondering if it just flaps around now.

Hello The kit comes with some incredibly vague instructions. There is a lot of room for imagination and guess work. The folks at Callaway are very helpful. The newn gill panel bolts to the cut fender and wraps around the rocker panel and fastens to the underside of the car very securely, and you still have access to the jacking points. I am attatching some more pictures. It is complete except for the rear bumper which I am still waiting for from Callaway.

It's looking really good. Can you take a full-body shot of the car from the side? You've cut the stock rear bumper out of all the pics. I'm curious what it looks like.

Hello
I still don't have the rear bumper yet. When I get it I will post more progress pictures and then the final pics when it is painted and installed
Thanks Mike

I'd like to see a pic of the car with the Camaro rear bumper still on the car if you'll take one from the side.

Sorry I wasn't clearer the first time. :jsmile

Hello The body kit is finally done. It took a while to get the rear bumper in. I am attaching the newest pics. Hope you like them. Thanks Mike

Looks really good. Bet you have the most unique Camaro in your entire town now :)

That dent in your driver's side rear quarter could be removed by a paintless dent repair specialist for not very much money, time, or effort. You'll just need to be careful not to lean on the car there and re-dent it. I had a similar one on our '95 Z28, and I leaned on it, and sure enough it came back Guy re-removed it for free.
