1LE Badging

So, what are your plans to badge your 1LE? Looks like GM doesn't have a single one on these cars.

This same question has been spinning in my head since I ordered the car. I'm thinking about replacing the small SS badges in the grill and on the trunck with custom 1LE badges or maybe on the hood, ZL1 style like another member was going to do, but I want the badges black and red instead of chrome and red. But if I put badges on the hood then I might peel off the black vinyl which I'm not sure I want to do. Just some of the ideas running through my head.

I went and looked AFTER I started this thread, seems like it has been discussed a lot but I have only seen one example of a 1LE badge. The other thing that I wonder is how do we refer to these cars?

When asked, "is that the SS?" Of course the answer is yes. Now when asked what will I say? I damn sure don't want to enter into a lame discussion with a non car person about what a 1LE is or what that means.

I think GM should have at least put the 1LE on the bottom of the steering wheel.

I would probably just say it's a SS. True car guys/girls wouldn't have to ask what model it is. People who know about the 1LE will know how to spot one.

I'm thinking about getting a custom badge made from Emblem Pros to put on the strut brace, but I think that might be it. I like the look of it with the SS badges and wouldn't want to add on to them or remove them.

Make your strut brace look like this:

I thought about doing that as well! My original plan (and still a possible plan) for my 1LE was to make it look as close to the concept as possible, i.e. ZL1 spoiler and rockers, hash tag stripes with the black hood, black mirrors, cosmetics under the hood, and possibly the larger brakes in the long run. Still debating if I want to do that or go with something original. Chances are though, the strut brace will be black, it's just a matter of if it says "CAMARO" or "1LE" on it

I actually contacted Emblem Pros about making some custom 1LE badges yesterday, I think it needs it since I'm taking the hood wrap off and adding stuff, thinking of putting one on the hood and one on the trunk instead of the SS. They will be Satin black to match the rims and maybe the 1 in Red to accentuate the brembo's. I think it will give it a nice addition and won't be overly noticeable or maybe just put them under the Camaro sidescripts. We will see!

here's what i would do if i got the 1le....debadge the stock ss in the back, and the chevy emblem. Then buy a big ss emblem on eBay (comes off trailblazer/impalas) and put it where the chevy logo used to be and have someone create a 1le logo and put that where the old ss logo used to be...That way people still know it's an SS WITH the 1LE package

Agreed....if they are asking if it's an SS then they probably don't know about the 1LE. Now, if I were at a car show and had time to shoot the breeze then I would probably explain that it has the 1LE package and what that consists of. Otherwise if it were mostly in passing I would just go with it's an SS.

I agree with this other than I would use old school SS on the front grill and in the rear and not the newer SS that comes on the trailblazer. I think a small 1LE where the SS is on the rear would be good.

Then maybe you could put another small emblem on the hood along side the cowl or maybe under the Camaro on the fender. Even that might be too much. I would just have to see it.

I think I'm going to order the heritage grill with no center emblem and paint it matte to match the hood. Then add a 1LE badge where the factory SS used to be on the lower corner driver side.

Most of these guys are dead on. A car guy will know what it is. Anybody else won't and couldn't care less. My Firehawk was a 1LE. Most people didn't know what a firehawk was much less what a 1LE was. About two weeks into owning it I just told people it was a Firebird. Personally I'm not one for badging cars and really wouldn't be opposed to stripping the camaro and ss badges off mine.

Nice. Should be a sweet ride. I'm ordering next year but it will be great to see you guys tearing up the track soon.

I am removing all badges, side camaro ones too. Chevy bow ties in black and the 1LE will use the ZL1 parts with the custom E. Somebody posted pictures of this already on the 1LE forums. That 1LE will go on back where the black SS is now.

Man, you have to leave the rear badge on so the guys behind you know what is blowing their doors off. With ur mods they will not have time to realize its a Chevy.
