Black 2SS/RS CGM Rally... and now CGM Bowties

Since I did not want to be without my Camaro, I ordered new front and rear bowties. $35 for front, $15 for rear (after taxes). It took 5 days for them to come in despite showing on backorder, picked them up from the Parts Dept, took them over to the BodyShop and had them paint them CGM. $75 for the paint/labor. Once they were painted, dry, and ready to install, they gave me a call and then it was a simple switch. The front is held in by 4 clip-type prongs, the rear is 3M automotive tape.

So, $125, but worth it to me, since I didn't like that the bowties were the only gold on the car it stuck out like a sore thumb, especially against the black.


On a side note, while I was there at the dealership, I got to hear the Finance guy's Camaro... He just had a Corsa exhaust installed yesterday. Sounded very nice! Too many choices, and not enough sound clips yet...

I didn't want to be w/out my car while they were painting the bowties. And to drive around w/ no bowtie while it was being done is just not acceptable. Simple as that!

Good choice. Looks great.

I hear you, I really don't like the gold ones either. Never have.

Looks good now they don't stick out so much but are not totally lost on the car either.

CGM is a magnificently odd color to begin with, but when you have CGM w/ Gray stripes and CGM badges, you have epicness!
