SLP fade to black gill stripes is what I used to cover mine.

If you look on page 2 of my build journal and scroll near the bottom, I have a few pictures of what the SLP faded gills look like. I think it is a really nice upgrade. There are many aftermarket gill stickers on the market, but none of them compare to the SLP. You may pay a little bit more, but it is well worth it.

Your ride looks great! I see ACS front vents, 3dCarbon side-front Vents, but what are the rears, also ACS? Thanks for the info.

I think this is the best look. I have some... just waiting for warm weather to put them on. Hacking holes in the sides of my car is not something I want to do, and they don't even look that good, IMO.

I had the vinyl ones but ended up getting the OEM Chevy inserts. I thought there was a little more to them. The vinyl inserts just looked like decals.

They are decals, but the "faded" ones make the gills look like actual vents. Good bang for minimum bucks.

I forgot to mention my car is black. So I don't think a fade to gloss black would work but maybe a flat would show up.

Can't get over how good that rear vent looks. Is it SLP? I remember seeing a special order Camaro at a dealer once with those vents. I think it was a SLP car

This is retro chrome like a 69, with black outs to the gills.
