My Two Cents, I have a 05C RS/SS the original grill was replaced in 1980. (Drunk chick backed into it) it still had the fadded silver paint on the grill, the replacement came from cormier chevrolet, but only in black. I tried to find a painted grill but could not. At the time the only other source was CLASSIC CAMARO (in Palm Springs back then) they only had GM-OEM parts, but did not Know what i was talking about. Some things never change.
