Emblems
 
  1. What are the standard emblems on a 2013 2SS 1LE?
    I.e. color, solid silver SS, Silver & black, silver & red, etc.
  2. Where to buy 1LE emblems for the hood?
Build date: 5/12 ... 2SS + 1LE + RS + Performance Exhaust ... black/black

Red SS for an RS equipped car, white SS is standard.

TedW 05-07-2013 08:58 AM

Thx ... just like my 2012 2SS + RS ... will check on getting a 1LE emblem for the hood to match. Wish Chevrolet would have installed them like they did on the ZL1.

I did not know this. I always thought the color of the SS badging was based on the exterior color of the car.

Interesting piece of info. Thanks for sharing it.

We think the reasoning is the the ZL1 is its own model and our 1LEs are just an option... this reasoning doesn't hold water because the RS gets badged in someway on all models that have that option. :noidea:

emblempros for the 1le emblems

Legendary Umbra 05-08-2013 07:47 PM

Since the beginning of the fifth gens the red was for the RS equipped camaros and the white for the non-RS equipped camaros.

Roger at emblempros.com told me today that they are approved by GM to manufacture the "1LE" emblems, but are still waiting on final contract signing to occur...then, we can order the emblems!

Is this still in limbo

racerx1214 05-22-2013 05:53 PM

Yes. I emailed Roger last night and he stated that he is still waiting on paperwork.

Tara Martin 05-23-2013 12:30 AM

I've been getting the same response for over three months. It seems that GM moves pretty slow getting contracts signed. I'm thinking about going to a local sign/stripe shop and getting custom stickers made in the meantime...

CrystalRedTintcoat 05-23-2013 01:53 AM

Wait, can't Roger from Emblem pros sell the emblems for the hood any longer?

chevy 3 05-23-2013 04:44 AM

Don't think so. Some have them and the rest can't get any. I have a fealing that we will be waiting a loooonnnngggg time before we see any real emblems.

BATMOB1LE 05-23-2013 08:39 AM

That sucks! I was excited to get a few.

JimE 05-23-2013 07:54 PM

Doesn't surprise me. They stopped the bowties, so stopping the "1LE" (which is also a trademark) is logical.

chevy 3 05-23-2013 10:15 PM

Why can't I get each letter separate and just buy a red number 1. They sell the letters separate or not? What I do with them is up to me right?

tramtwo 05-23-2013 10:55 PM

The font may be trademarked....

Nick S 05-24-2013 07:45 AM

What I'm trying to figure out is why trademark a logo but then not put a single emblem on the car with that logo? And to boot they (meaning Chevrolet) don't make any apparel or anything that I've seen with a 1LE logo. So it seems kind of rediculous to trademark a logo that you never use other than on a PDF flyer that you create to advertise the "option" package. They (meaning Chevrolet again) just need to get off their butts and either start selling emblems, apparel, and other 1LE logo'd items that us enthusiasts want or just frickin sign and return the paperwork to let the aftermarket companies do it for them (and make money for them). It just doesn't seem that complicated.

JimE 05-24-2013 07:33 PM

They have to trademark whatever designation they plan to use, whether they actually use an emblem on the car or merchandise or not.

chevy 3 06-07-2013 05:53 PM

Any good news

Still not listed on emblempros website. I've gotten tired of bugging Roger in email, coz it's the same story that GM has to sign off on the contracts. He said several months ago that he has the emblems made and will list them on the site as soon as official approval is given.

Tara:love:

OzzySS 06-07-2013 06:19 PM

JimE 06-07-2013 07:28 PM

Guess they finally received approval: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=300195

Hence the reason the topic title states "Coming Soon". :frusty:
