SS badge for center of grill or silver bow tie...
 
Im getting the black SS/RS and I think it would look good and would like to either put a silver/chrome bow tie instead of the gold...OR...a red "SS" emblem for the center of the grill...thoughts?

DO IT :headbang: if your getting the SS definitly put a SS symbol on it

many other people are putting SS symbols on the front of the gril

l but one thing wouldnt it look weird having 2 SS symbols on the grill one near the headlight?

SimC33 09-28-2008 08:07 PM

Well see if I were to put the red SS on the center of the grill then id remove the one near the headlights...

drivingincamaro 09-28-2008 08:18 PM

hm a red ss symbol on a cyber gray or black SS would look really good :thumbup: :headbang:

i smell a photoshop

Do whatever you like :drinking:

I will definatley get an aftermarket SS symbol when they come out with one. Until they do I can live with the bowtie.

Standard Grille- Silver Bowtie
Accessory Grille- Silver SS (not into red)

Lemme make sure it's clear that was just my opinion.

The accessory grill comes with NOTHING. No bowtie OR SS.

I was just saying I think on the standard grille I think the bowtie looks best, but an SS would look nice in the center of the accessory grille.

Sorry if there was any confusion.

headpunter 09-29-2008 06:12 PM

call me silly but has anyone noticed how wide the car looks without any bowtie or SS on the front? i still like that


but otherwise i think im going to replace the gold bow tie with a
Blue one, in homage to the Zl1 camaros of the past

lalometalik 09-29-2008 06:32 PM

keepin it o.g. golden tie, black trim
yo...

blackZbandit 09-29-2008 06:35 PM

I was thinking this morning Accessory Grill w/ no badging. I'll put my 'SS' badges on the fenders and trunk, then custom LS3 badges on the rear end of the hood cowl

Cam te bowtie be removed with out leaving an impression? Is it preformed into the grill?

It is. If you just take it off, you'll have a dimple in the center of the grille...

If there would be an SS center badge, I think it would warrant an entirely new grille. If you take off the bowtie, it leaves a very large indention that would require an "SS" badge so big to fill it that it would look disproportionate to the car.

See?

The only thing that I could think of to pull off the SS badge without replacing the grille would be a proportionate-sized part containing the badge with a grille-colored spacer behind it to fill in the rest of the indention. There would be seams, though.

Are the front and back bow ties easily removable? I want to debadge everything on my car as soon as I get it! Even the "Camaro" on the side!

13F20 10-13-2008 10:50 PM

I am getting the grill insert on my SS. Now would you say i should leave it plain or place a SS badg on the fromt grill. No wkeep in mind that it will be the 2SS cyber Gray w/ Black rally stripes and the RS package.

drivingincamaro 10-13-2008 11:05 PM

what about RS symbol in the middle of the grill :thumbup:

I made this to show what it would look like to have a center mounted SS emblem with a custom grille on a production car:
