It clips onto the top of the grill plastic. Then when you install the grill , it is reinforcement for the top of the grill and nice trim to the edge of the grill. Make sure you preinstall it to check all the mounting screws/clips and also check if the very middle tip lines up with the header panel. The last one I did was about a 1/4" off center and looked terrible.Thanks Al. I ordered one and will install if for sure. How does it mount? I have never seen one before. Does it go in front or behind the grill.
MikeI picked up the Stripe Stencil Kit today at Hotrods & Classics as well as a grill stiffner. I was told to use one, but most guys don't. My grill was a bit funky before, so I hope this fixes that riple problem. It was only 30 bucks and a new grill is over $300.00.
WOW,,I agree also. Just wait till you chip it the first time. I thought I read earlier it is going to be a daily driver and sit outside.I don't know about anyone else, but... geez... I'm beginning to feel like I'm witnessing an over-analytical post-game show after the world series or something here. Man! Way too serious... It is what it is...
Mike-- Just my .02$,(okay, maybe .03$) Enjoy the paintjob. Enjoy the car. --Because it looks awesome! :yes:
Congratulations on getting to this point in the resto so quickly AND with a sweet-looking '69 Camaro. The anticipation is killing me to finally see the car in its whole, sitting on the pavement, waiting for you to turn the key and cruise.

Picture of fender before grill was mounted.
Here is original grill pic before paint.
He is talking about the ones that push in the top front of the lower valance. ( plastic square ones )You can also eleminate them and use nuts and bolts to hold the lower part of the grill.Hey Mike which plastic inserts are you referring to. The ones that go around the head lights. Or the ones that the screws, screw into?
