De-badge or go Black

I have a 2013 Ashen Gray 6 speed manual ZL1 on order (week4) and I want to keep it as dark and "mean as hell" looking as possible, no chrome and all lights blacked out. Also have the chevy bowties in solid black. The faded vent gills in vinyl. Not sure if I should e-pel/nano fusion the paint protection. Not sure how to maintain, do you wax over it with the rest of the car? Not sure if I should order the camaro letters in black or debadge the sides? Chevy all has them on sale this week. Any feed back is greatly appreciated. Thanks
Normagene!

De-badge

Thanks, still not sure what I'll do. Also want to change out the chrome exhaust tips for black ones. Don't like and not sure what do with the chrome surrounds around the tail lights. Must be blackout replacements or some sort of vinyl overlay. Any suggestions?

There are tons of options for blacking out your car.

Debadge... at least remove the 'camaro' badging from the sides and the bowtie from the rear. Then you can do the rest of the badging in black... too much badging on the zl1 imo...

I'd go with black and no debadging. You've earned the ZL1 badges.

Side "CAMARO" de-badging only

I'm not touching the ZL1 badges. Only thinking about either removing the camaro letters on the sides or replacing them with the black letters. Chevy
Mall.com has them on sale this week. Pretty good deal, I don't care for the vinyl overlay because the chrome on the edges still shows. I have the solid black chevy bowties ready as soon as my baby gets here. Already picked out the perfect name for her.

I went black on everything, including custom painted ZL1 badges. Removed "Camaro" from the fenders and moved the hood badges there.

If you've got this black theme going on, I'd go with high-quality black Camaro letters.

Need some pics!

Queued for Production NO MORE

Just checked with GM web site (Track your Order) and today is week 4 exactly since my order went in. Everyday for the last four weeks every time I checked it said your vehicle is queued for production and awaiting bla bla bla... Not today! She is now enroute!

Jameslk350. Great looking ride! What does it say on the side badge, looks like it's more than camaro, tried to zoom in but it all blurred out. R u thinking about adding the vinyl faded side gills? Saw one your color at the car show up here last month w/faded gills and the SS decals on the rims, wow! It was really sharp.

Not a computer girl/hate them, so I'm embarrassed to say I haven't figured out how to load in my pictures, it asks me for URL, whatever, like I understand chinese or something...not. Rather change a tire/oil than play on the computer. I've had my Red Jewel SS up to 153mph.

Paying Invoice

Ordered my ZL1 from Quirk chevrolet in Braintree, mass. Paying invoice, they only tried screwing me with this additional advertisement and something extra fee they added on, so I was not happy and got them to throw in the gray camaro GM car cover. The fee was like $1,400 above dealer invoice, still below MSRP. The cover sells for something like $360.

For any of America's heroes who are serving this great country of ours, active or retired, USAA can get you another $750 rebate. Negotiate your deal first and whether you're getting something off the lot or placing an order, then put in your USAA rebate. Check out their web site, get your incentive number and the dealership will deduct the $750 from your price, plus the sales tax on the $750. Every little bit helps!

Can't wait to see my salesmans face when I finally get my ride, and they have to take $750 off my price!

We are going there. Please come back to OP's topic.
I am looking for debadging and/or black-out info as well. I have an AGM that would look much better w/o all the chrome.

Debadge the camaro on the sides and bowtie in the back. Black out the front bowtie and keep the zl1 badges. Nasty.

Exactly what I did... Hot clean aggressive look. ZL1 doesn't need Camaro badges and bowties.. they only distract from all the rest IMO...

Hey man, we live near each other. I talked with Quirk but they didn't have an allocation at that time so I went in another direction. When is your car supposed to show up?

Debadge the camaro letters. I blacked mine out, but I had am instance where I came out to my car and some had tried stealing the lettering and dented and took paint off the car. So Debadge. Just the camaro letters.

I de-badged my black Z, and replaced the front bowtie with a completely black unit. Also replaced the chrome rear-light bezels with black ones. I removed the rear bowtie completely. I am honestly sort of regretting taking the ZL1 badges off and may put them back on. If I do, they would need to be black instead of chrome. I am still undecided on that issue.

2 ZL1's at Qurik

Mine is currently en route. Quirk has two ZL1's on the lot right now. Orange and a victory red. I think both are automatic, MSRP 60 and 61 ball park

Ordered mine 4 weeks ago, and it's due in around mid October. Told me 6 to 8 weeks, looks like that will be about right.

Can't wait, had the SS in the 150's, so the ZL1 will take me I'm sure into the 160's. Wow, liven fast and furious, ain't it great.

rmyers/Black ZL1

Wow! What a great looking ride. Sorry to hear about the vandalism, your in Texas so I would sleep in the back seat with my gun ready in case they return. Can't believe the crap/disrespect some people have. I'll definitely leave the ZL1 badges. The camaro ones will either go or be replaced with black ones. I'm also blacking out the side marker/tail and headlights.

Due in mid October!

Trading-in the SS, Quirk is giving me 29,500 so I'm happy with that deal. Got the ZL1 at invoice, they move a lot of cars. It's a pretty big dealership, none of the smaller Chevrolet dealers could beat their deal, had to drive a little further, but it's worth it. My local dealership couldn't compete and didn't have an allocation.
