Wish you were local Tim cuz id love to have that grill but bad back would prevent me from doing much car work. Wonder what places or where would do install and how much... Hmm.

Are you using a dealership or body shop to install? They might recommend if it should be painted.

The dealerships will put them on....cause you can now get the grille as a dealer add on. Might be a little prices tho...but you definately need 2 people and the right tools to do this

Dealer can put that on but typically that gets installed at the factory

Need your input guys......Im 50/50 on what looks better.

I currently have the boring old regular Cover, i just bought a New Cover that is Painted Inferno Orange. I also bought these emblems to go onto the cover (6.2L LS3)....every show people asks me "what motor is that" cause it only says V8 on the shroud....kinda boring.

So What looks better???

Photo 1......Emblem right below the Chevrolet Logo.

or

Photo 2....... Emblem on the outer corner at an angle

Thanks guys!!

I didn't realize gm offered anything other than the red or grey. Well putting a cover on at my complex is probably asking for it

Option 1- 6.2L LS3 emblem in center only


Option 2- 6.2L emblem with SS emblem (its white, with chrome edge)


Option 3- 6.2L emblems below Chevrolet wording



Option 4- 6.2L emblems and SS Retro Emblem


These are my Choice and scared to pick one, cause once its on....its on

Tim,

Congratulations again on your acquisition, your ride is nothing short of AWESOME and BEAUTIFUL!! You have some nice mods too, sounds like your SS/RS really means business! Thanks for the too! Sorry I didn't post easlier, recent work travel and getting our car has had me really busy. But now I'm gong to subscribe to your thread, which I didn't think to do before. Don't want to miss any new info on your baby!

Your engine badges look sweet, that will keep the question from being asked allright! I like option #3 the bext, badge on the rocker cover up with the raised Chevrolet letters.

Beautiful now, gonna look even nicer!! Btw, I decided on no stripes on my IOM as well, at least for now. Btw, hoping to see you 26 June at RICOA!
