LLT / V6 Emblem?

Would anyone consider designing an emblem for the V6 LLT engine for display on / in their car? It seems as if the pros have focused solely on the two V8 options. I'm very happy with my choice of Camaro . Any thoughts?

I was just thinking about that when visiting the emblempro site. If it said "LLT Direct Injection" in smaller letters that would look cool.

I intend to put the "RS" plates on the Engine Cowl (backordered) and an LLT plate might be a great finishing touch (or way too much...)

I've seen the Cadillac CTS with 3.6 and direct injection badges on the back end. The engine also has a designation of High Feature V6. So, there are many options to highlight.Or we could just bling it out.....

Maybe something like the CTS-V logo but based on Chevy instead of Caddy? Not that bad of an idea.

The only thing I've been able to think of is something like this, but it seems a bit copy-catish.

P.S. - Sorry for the crude photoshop. I'm better at editting things than making them from scratch.

You can make your own online. I've used this outfit before, good quality and price.

Nice effort - perhaps the last T shouldn't be larger - I think a larger "3" or "99" makes sense for the LS3 L99 but not for the LLT. Maybe the Direct Injection should be in red

Like this?

P.S. - Sorry that the direct injection is not centered. Completely overlooked that somehow. Still gives the general idea though.

I contacted them about doing a 6.2L V8 to go on the other side (one side I ordered the L99). He had no problems doing that for me. Contact him here and I'm sure something can be worked out.

Personally, I don't want an extra emblem on mine. But I'm all for an owner doing to their car what they like.

I don't have access to Photoshop so here's three options done in Powepoint, converted to a jpg.

I like Option "C" with the "LLT Direction Injection"...

Put on a brushed aluminum or chrome back... a bit closer... though still needs a professional's touch.

Great - I'm not competing with you XanthosV6 so sorry my options crossed your next version in this thread - I just got curious how others would look.

Funny you brought this up, I am actually having a medallion custom machined as we speak. It was outsourced to China and I should get it back by friday. It will be replacing the chevy bowtie that is currently on the engine cover.

It is quite funny as I am a CNC programmer/Machinist it was cheaper to get it outsourced to China that it would have been to pay my boss to use the machine and machine it myself.

Once I get home from work I will post a 3D model of the medallion!!!

not a big fan of putting additional emblems on the car. I think it has just about the right number right now.


Off topic: Primus - it seems that both of our cars were build very close to one another, I am #3225 LLT/RS AT SIM

No worries. I'm not planning on putting any extra emblems on anyway. I prefer decals (stripes, etc) to emblems.

In what way? No room here for those who chose the 6? I would suggest not reading the 6 forum if it trips you out.

I also have a STS Caddy that has the same engine, and has a very nice looking "3.6 Direct Injection" on the back. It would look nice on the side below the Camaro on the sides.

Can you take a picture and post with its measurements? This might be a nice alternative - if so we can track down its GM Part # to order...

Thanks if you can...
