De-badge ZL1 hood on an SS or not

Alright, serious question. I have a 14 SS and added a ZL1 hood on it and I'm wondering what others think on whether the ZL1 emblems should be removed or left on the hood. (If they stay on the hood they will be Plastidipped black since that's how my other emblems are.)

Here are my thoughts. I want to keep the ZL1 emblems on the hood because it's an OEM hood and if I ever decide to resell it, I'd like them to be on it.

I want to remove them because I don't want people mistaking my SS for a ZL1. (this has already happened twice.)

I understand that ultimately it's my car and it's my decision, I'm just interested in the insight or perspective of others as it will allow me to make a better informed decision.

I say swap it, do you really think you'll sell the hood anytime soon? Could always get it put back on?

Is the other black badging SS? Since if you left it then it would be ZL1 and SS which could be pretty weird.

All my opinion

The car.
Another factor that contributes to the car being mistaken is the ZL1 repop wheels. (they're being removed in Jan for other reasons though.)

I have no intentions of selling the ZL1 hood anytime soon, but you never know what the future will bring. Yes other badging is the factory badging. See below. I was thinking plastidipping the ZL1 black so it'd be less noticeable to other people. Here's the rear.

You can take them off without hurting them, so I would probably pull them off and keep them around in case you sell it.

I wouldn't keep the badge on a non ZL1.
On another note, do your cowl lines match up?

do what you like. Screw with them all. Put Z/28 on one side of hood, ZL1 on the other side of hood. Red "SS" on the trunk, and a white "SS" on the grill. and on each side fender, put "1LE". Scare them all when you line up is what I say, it's your car, enjoy it the way that excites you the most.

No they do not. However, you have to walk right up to the car to see that they're off. Most people don't notice it. (I'm sure the only people who do are Camaro owners.)

I'm kind of excited to see my car in Jan; then it'll be an SS with a ZL1 hood and Z28 (reproduction) wheels. It's gonna be a mutt. LOL.
I just need to figure out what kind of spoiler to add...

do what YOU want. grow stones. If it is the look you want. all the folks who would tell you what to do didn't pay for the hood. Again, it is yours.

Hood looks good. The ribbing would bother me if I was called a poser and guys wanting to race thinking I have a SC engine. I love the look so why get some custom SS bages for the hood where the ZL1 emblems were? That hood changes the entire look of the car and is mean as it comes down the street. Smoe custome SS slanted to look like its accelerating would be cool.
