Probably could use the camaro walk through. It should be.

-Remove air dam from under front bumper
-Remove front bumber
-Remove inner nose cone
-Remove Headlights
-Remove bolts from inside of the engine bay for fenders
-Remove inner wheel well (they have plastic pull tab pieces)
-Unbolt fender from bracket on inside of fender
-Take fender(s) off
-Remove bracket from car (You will need them)

then apply everything to the other car, the do steps in reverse

**Bolt sizes vary between 8-10mm sockets. Be prepared for a long day**
