I would just mask off the back of the car with a hefty bag and painters masking tape, then rattle can epoxy paint to the color of choice. I just sprayed mine gloss black.

This was done by the previous owner, retro 69ish if memory still serves me well. Need to remove those little factory SS emblems.

Here is a pic of mine, used carbon fiber wrap! Also put thin clear bra on the lip of trunk lid not to scratch the pain lifting the trunk.

I went with the Sparks emblem in both the front and rear in white and removed the stock red SS emblems and stock bowties.

Yeah. One or the other... not both. I prefer the retro look.

That looks good. I like the white, and that's what I have in the front, but I sort of like the look of the red on black. Does it matter much if the front and black colors don't match? No one will ever see them both at the same time anyway.

This becomes a matter of vehicle identification, really. The "stock red SS emblems" identify the car as having the RS Package. White letters denote non-RS Package.

See above ^^^^
It only matters if it matters to you, but the Red and White do mean something.

My car originally came with the red emblems but I personally like the look of the white badges better. I prefer that they match front and rear.

Well, here's the "real" (non photoshopped) pic with the emblems off. It looks a little weird, but I think it's because I'm used to something being there. I think I'm going to put some kind of "SS"emblem in the center. Not sure how that'll look with the "supercharged" but I'll wait and see, I guess.

Rear bowtie removal doesn't look right. Sorry. Something needs to be there.

Eh, I think it looks really plain and with just he supercharged it seems sort of, off balanced lol I think there should be something there though. I don't like naked butts!

I really liked that pic of the camaro across the back instead of an emblem, that looks awsome!

Personally I dislike all badging on painted surfaces. I completely debaged mine and I love it. I hate washing my car only to have the water pool around the bagdes, then leave drip marks.

BTW, the one on the front is upside down.
