I have them on my hood...they are awesome. They are plastic, not metal, but they look great! I have had them since January and they still look brand new.

awesome, great to hear. 25 bucks[with shipping] for the pair ain't to bad. I want to place them under the camaro lettering on the side.

you think the red is gonna look good on my yellow camaro? I'm leaning towards yes but it never hurts to get a second opinion...

...also if anybody wants to share pics, please do

The first, cheaper set is probably made by the ton in China. Maybe by the ton in the US on a machine.

The 2nd, more expensive set, is literally made by hand by Emblem Pros in Kentucky. I have their 'Camaro' scripts on the side of my car and while expensive, they are extremely quality.

That being said, your call.

I think they will look great on your car.

I think the red will look good b.c your SS emblems are red (assuming you have the RS package by your headlights) Get the cheaper ones; they are identical.

I was thinking the same thing about the SS emblems and yes I have the rs package. alright I'm sold , just put an order for them. Another thing that crossed my mind was If I get the super nice one it'll just outshine the existing camaro lettering on the fender. I want it to blend in nicely since it'll be right underneath it.

I put these on the sides of my cowl scoop. They're expensive, but they're worth it.

Sorry I am coming in late to this thread.
The Ebay ones you posted are a very thin, hollow, stamped aluminum, "think like a pop canish". They will dent and crush. Cheap junk not made to last. I am not sure about fading from the sun, but I bet they would.

Ours are solid material all the way through. Not ever going to rust, oxidize, or fade. So those are your differences. Plus we have Color options and other details we can do.

I do not usually get on here to point things like this out, but this Ebay seller does not really dislose that these are a "shell", if you saw a picture of the backside of those you would be severely dissapointed.

Thanks, Roger

I think they look good, I wanted to match my gold hockey stripe so I ordered gold decals
SS 6.2L. They were cheap so if I didn't like them I wouldn't be out much money to throw them away.
