red/white/blue 4th gen hood emblem

Anyone tried to put the red/white/blue 4th gen hood emblem on a 5th gen?

http://www.youngsfbody.com/inc/sdetail/2297

I'm looking at pictures trying to find a place where it would look good but I can't find anywhere that I think would look good because the front end is pointed instead of curved.

Thinking about possibly replacing the rear bowtie or on the nose of the hood similar to where it is on 4th gens.

hmm that would be an interesting idea. I think it'd be a cool thing to put on the rear maybe to replace the bowtie. Or if you were to remove the "camaro" lettering on the side of the car and replace it simply with that symbol. I think it'd be sweet and I've kinda been considering it in the back of my brain housing group for a while now.

I agree. I think it would look better on the rear. If you put it at the nose of the car like it was on the 4th gen, and left the 5th gen bowtie it would seem like a little too much, but if you had the heritage grill with no bowtie and put it above it might not seem so redundant.

on the side of the front bumper above the turn signal would be cool, or if u have the heritage grill it would look cool there.

I personally can't see it looking good anywhere but centered somewhere. The problem with putting it on the nose right above the grille is that in the center it's a sharp angle as opposed to the curve of the 4th gens, which is why i'm considering replacing the rear bowtie.
