I haven't done any work on the new Camaros so I'm not real sure how much of a pain they are but I know if they are anything like my Vette they are horrible to work on. I'm only slightly kidding when I tell people most procedures in the service manual start with "remove engine from car."
Totally worth it though once you get out on the road.
It was definitely fun to drive, but the bumper removal and everything in between was so time consuming. Why in the world would they put 5 screws on the outer fender only to find 4 more bolts underneath that same area after you drop the fender. Then you repeat it on the other side, remove two bolts at the bottom of the frame, and 2 at the top along with 6 clips. THEN the bumper comes off..
Now imagine that, the custom wiring we had to install and the new headlights and put those all back together again. When I work in my Honda I have that bumper off in 5 mins., working with this Camaro took 3x as long which I think is so silly how they like to have extra bolts. Making the custom wiring and testing all the electrical functions was faster than removing the bumper and it was with 2 people..not one. /endrant
