How was the paint under the letters? Can you see a difference in color vs the exposed surface?

takes years to get a fade...if you do it on a car 2-3 years old, I've never seen a ghost....it's not taking a direct UV hit like a trunk or roof....

Looks good! Sure is a lot easier to clean without the letters too.

Best regards,

I like that!! I'm thinking about taking the bowtie off the back and getting 'camaro' out there. So I wouldn't need those to let people know

I was going to remove the rear bowtie but I have two holes on the deck lid that would need to be filled. I think the 2010's have that.

That is true. I have thought about that black bar or whatever it's called. I'm torn on it.
