Trying to figure out the best way to do mine.

Mine is wrapped but the guy that did it did not do a great job. After I finish some engine mods I will pay someone to wrap the trim

Thank you

I found it from Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market only 22k on it, (way cheaper then anyone around here and prices I have been finding individuals selling for, searched for 2 months), I drove it a few times this weekend and love it, I would have went with Camaro SS manual but incase I do supercharge it would rather have the 3.27
