I'm trying to take the bumper cover off, I took the bottom splash guards or whatever they are out. But where do I go from there? I see 2 nuts above the side lights and I took them off but no avail, it doesnt move at all. Is there a guide out there to help me take this T/a bumper cover off?

well i have never taken one off a f-body, but i have taken quite a few off other GM vehicles and there seems to be a pattern.
open hood, may be some plastic push clips holding on the top
take out screws or retainers holding lower diflector on
take out screws or retainers holding inner fender liner to front bumper.
look inside bumper after pulling back fender liner and where the bumper cover meets the fender there should be one or two bolts holding it on
should come off, but if not search to see where its still held on.

ive taken mine off before...just the top 3 plastic push pins, all the 10mm bolts holding the lower plastic and air dam, 3 more plastic push pins up under the nose in front of the radiator, and then two nuts per side up near the side markers which can be sort of difficult to get to. other than that shouldn't be anything holding it on that i can remember.
