body colored molded mud guard possible problem

just went to my dealer he was putting on a set of mud guards on a 2ss the front one didnt look right because of the little gm symbol on the lower part of the fender .the guard goes over it by about an 8th to 1/4 inch over it .so it doent fit flush .may be a concern for anyone who wants to go after market .i think maybe they should have put a cut out on the flap itself to go around the gm emblem. i only care because if its not flush all kinds of shit will get into that gap .im not complaining im just putting it out there

I was planning on getting these but after seeing some pictures, not so sure. Is there any regular mud flaps made for the new camaro? I hope some more options are available soon.

I'd take some dental floss and remove that GM symbol in a heartbeat if it meant I was going to have a gap. It looks weird stuck down there any way.

I've seen a few others with the quarter flare mud flaps with the same clearance from the GM emblem, that should not be an issue...

After looking at other picture without the mud flats, maybe they moved the emblems back a bit to make room?

I don't think so though.

Could it be a LT vs SS? The original post was a SS and the pictures were a LT.

Could also be that on that one car the GM badge was put on incorrectly.
Imagine that the esteemed gentlemen above have it right in that they are
possibly trying to put the rear guards on the front...

That emblem looks like a pain to wash/wax around anyway. I think it needs to be removed.

I better not have a gap. I will look at it first before the test drive. It will be a savings for me if it does not fit correctly.

Nothing personal, but I do not want anything jerry rigged! LOL!

I'll take 'em. I need to slap them on the Envoy and Sonoma.

Anything you guys don't want, shoot me a PM. Camaro badges, GM badges, Chevy badges, whatever.

Toyota badges work too. I'll use them for solder or something.
