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.

Agreed, Though I didn't get my bowtie from Lupe but I did get the ZL1 badge and tail light bezels painted from there. Here's a picture I took a while back

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

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.
That is really sweet! Love that bowtie on that color! The blacked out ZL1 emblem is awesome as well.

I'm tempted to put "camaro" lettering across the back, remove the fender emblems and put "supercharged" there, but I think I'm just going to to the white Sparks SS on the rear to match my front. I like that it's sort of old school meets new school.

Got my Sparks Restorations SS emblem today. Here's some pics. I think it definitely looks way better with something in the middle, be it a bow tie, SS, or whatever. Without anything there, it looks too plain to me. I'm not 100% sure about the 'supercharged' badge, but I think I like it as is.

I have considered changing my badges or even getting rid of the bow tie entirely (grille only). I also like the idea of using the RS instead of the bow tie, but honestly I think the bow tie looks the best.

I think maybe we just like changing things around and may be kidding ourselves. I mean why would you pull the "C A M A R O" lettering off the fenders and then add it to the trunk.

I was thinking of doing this too, but I was afraid I'd get the letters on crooked or something. Looks cool, though
