#3 looks the most like original '69 quarter trim. That's what I have, and no problems with mine. I think they look good. They must also help prevent chips tot he gill area, because I have none.

Did you buy those from phasetek (retro usa)?

Have you noticed any chipping? or such.

They were actually already on my car when I bought it, but the original owner got them direct from RetroUSA. I like them and left them on. No issues at all. If you know anything about the first gen Camaros they look very much like the '69 deluxe trim. My dad had a Lemans Blue '69 Z/28 with the same trim on the quarters.

I bought a set from them and put them on my 2010 Camaro, every time I washed the car more and more of the black paint came off. I could take my fingernail and scrape it off, when I contacted them all I got was sorry you can touch up the paint. I took them off and got the Emblempros trim, no problems at all with it so when I got my 2012 I put them on it. It looks more like a modern interpretation of the 69 trim just as the 5th gen is a modern interpretation of the 69 Camaro. They just seemed to me to be made cheap for what they cost.

No paint issues with mine...maybe they changed the paint formula or you got a bad set. To each his own, I personally think they look better than the emblempros trim with pinstripe tape.

For the $250 I paid for them I expected a higher quality product and at least them replacing them when the paint came off, I got neither. Thus my dislike for their products.

Fair enough. I got them for free, as they were already on my car when I bought it used. don't think I'd have paid 250.00 for them, but can't complain about the look or the quality.

I have the Retro USA ones on my car. They have been on it for over a year and they still look good.
