If I go with a sparks SS, what's a good color for a black car? Red or white, or maybe black?

White to balance it out with your front emblem

i think the bowtie looks fine.. like it's meant to be dark grey.. then again it may be more faded than I'm noticing.. i personally don't like when things have too little badging.. that plainness you speak of.. paint it maybe?

i like the supercharged emblem, just not sure i like the placement.. different centering than the SS.. if you go with the SS in place of the bowtie maybe shift supercharged towards right side?

i bought the cheap publix (grocery) brand floss and it worked fine for removing the SS.. just make sure you heat it up enough i guess...

.:edit:.

Yeah, I haven't done it as of yet. But have seen at least one in person. They sell larger font Camaro lettering for the rear.

Op - I think the car looks really plain without any badging on the rear. You could look to get another form of bowtie or a different badge entirely
Agreed...

Even with the "Supercharged" badge, I think your lower trunk lid looks too plain without an emblem.

My preference would be a bow tie but I think the modern SS like the one Sparks sells looks good as well.

If you decide on replacing your bow tie, I have to second the comments from djcfuzz regarding Lupe at River City Creations. He offers a wide variety of custom painted bow ties and his workmanship is top notch. He did the taillight bezels, bow tie and black ZL1 emblem for my car and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.

I got custom painted front and rear bowties... went to put the back one on and decided not to, to me it has a cleaner look and easier to wash & wax without it, same reason I took the fender emblems off, too.

Yeah, that's pretty cool. Not sure if it'd look good with the supercharged badge, though. Maybe too many letters on the back

I'm thinking of doing the large sparks SS emblem in white, in place of the bow tie. That way, like someone else mentioned, the front and back match. If I do that, I'll probably just remove the small red SS. I'd like to avoid moving the "supercharged" badge, but putting it on the right side is a possibility. The placement would be about the same, though. It'd just be on the other side.

Here's sort of what I'm thinking....

The rear bowtie looks best imo. Sparks SS looks good but too expensive for an emblem imo.
