There's a couple of places you can get them on the internet:

If you want the old school style from the 69 Camaro:

https://www.americanrestorationparts...M-P1029C0.aspx

If you want current style:

http://visionmotorworks.com/chssemsip.html

The current style are stick-on which would work on the back but the front might be tough.

Don't know since I don't have my car yet. It's only going to cost about $20 to find out though.

I would do te SS thing to. But chances are you will have to replace the whole grill. I wouldnt only do a bolt on type thing if i did it.

Yeah, when you remove the bowtie it leaves an indention that is shaped in its likeness - kinda hard to fit an SS in that without it looking terrible. They're probably going to reproduce a stock-like grille but with the SS logo in the center. Hopefully it'll be the new style SS since that will feel a little more appropriate. They're apparently making one right now at the Tom Henry thread.

well if anybody sees one pm me. I would like one of those I would want red because I have the RS package on the SS. I probably would do the grill thing and not touch the back as that bowtie leaves holes. But didnt the ole camaro have the SS in front and bowtie in back

My 68 has SS on front SS on back and its all original. There actually isn't a bowtie anywhere on the car.

been looking around.... still no luck.... hope someone makes them.... also one to cover the two holes after you remove the rear tail bowtie....

once i get my car i think I'll have to draw a set out and get it made by a machine shop (billet) then i can remove the mini ones (stock SS ones)

i like the old school ones ('69) but i think a will match the mini ones (on car)... then they will match all the rest

my grandpa thought about buying a v6 grill and painting the bowtie flatblack to match the grill and throwing one of them stickers on my car when i get it, but i'd much rather do a grill swap where the ss is already in the middle.

I think the real solution will be for someone to create an SS emblem that is mounted on a bowtie shaped backing that will fit into the original installation points. Sure, upon close inspection someone will be able to see the bowtie probably. But, for the most part the just SS will be visible. If someone does this I'll be all over it

okay I can see that.. but how about an SS to incorporate into the Bowtie?
that would look cool..... interesting my car doesnt say RS anywhere... that's to bad.. i know its an RS because of the REd SS, but most dont..

That's exactly what I was saying before. If you were to remove the bowtie, it would leave an indention shaped like it so the SS would have to have a bowtie-shaped backing to compensate. The only other way to do it is make an entirely new grille which... so far, seems like what's gonna be done.

I know that Tom Henry Racing had a render when they were in their concept stage for their 'THRSS' Camaro that they are developing.

Exactly!!
I've been saying the same thing! We don't need an aftermarket grill! (Though some would like one anyway), all we need is an SS emblem that would fit over the existing bowtie fitting. It isn't rocket science! And if I had manufacturing tools, I would do one custom of my own!! Hell,, I might find a way of doing one anyway!

Anyone notice that the new SS emblem is on a near exact angle to the bowtie. So to design an aftermarket SS emblem to fit into the divit left from the bowtie isn't much of a stretch. A company could produce a near replica to the factory SS emblem, just blown up a little and angled in the center (or have the backing agled) to fit into place on the grill.

C'mon vendors! Enough with the stripes and stickers (youve pretty much mastered that much), and lets move with emblems!!

Look at the SLP Camaro on the photos thread, they've done that exact thing. Except it's with the old school SS script, I'd prefer the new SS script.
