Also since im painting the fender on, in order to do it right and have no lifted lines the whole fender will be done and cleared. Which means the Camaro and SS emblems have to come off.

so with that said i need to decide on putting them back on like they were.

or Black emblems, or a supercharged emblem, or combination of all. So many ideas

Looks good, I bet it will look better painted and with the color you specified. Are you going to ask the painter to paint them a little wider like the GM fender stripes? I'm going to do the same when I get my car, so I might be hitting you up for some info on your painter. :thumbs: Seems more people are doing the fender stripes.

Thanks bud, my painter is actually a buddy of mine. He is just going to tape off the exact dimensions of these stripes and paint them. I like them just how they are

I got the middle emblem and put it on the center of the passenger dash and i get comliments for it all the time ,the last one would look good on your trunk lid and forget the first emblem go for 3D carbon or garry's customs side fender vents IMHO.

I'd just put the CAMARO back on the fender. I put the supercharged emblems on my hood and I think it came out great. People have noticed it a lot.

Sorry not a fan of the Hash marks. To me looks like something missing without other black carried out. Maybe if Heritage grill black or blackout panel on front end or black out mirrors. Not sure seems like something missing though. Its one thing to vinyl them for easy removal, but shooting fenders over seems like a lot of $$$$ if ever want to change/not like anymore.

Love the hood setup (As I am sporting the same hood) I thought about doing T3 stripes, but decided against it.

I like the Hash marks Tim! I miss my silver ones, I took them off because I changed from a silver theme to carbon flash metallic. I plan to get some more eventually.
