Laser-cut Plastic Gill

I was able to get some of the first batch of laser-cut plastic gill inserts from www.emblempros.com installed on my car yesterday. I'm very happy with them. I've been pretty disappointed that every other color of Camaro got some cool gill stickers to make them pop but there wasn't really anything for black cars. I got some charcoal gray plastic gills to give it a kind of subtle yet apparent look to the gills. What do you guys think?

I like it, did you install them yourself? I need to look into getting them for my CGM but not sure what color to get.

Yeah, I put them on myself. Very easy. I'd go with black if I were you. Although, you have some nice red highlights on your car so that would be kind of interesting as well. Did you get your stripes painted on?

That looks really good, it's subtle. I'm wondering how the charcoal gray would look on my VR. I really don't want the full black decals.

I think they will have them available very soon. Looking at their site, their other plastic cut pieces are the same price as their aluminum ones so I would assume they would be about the same price as the aluminum ones.

I'm thinking about adding the cyber gray hockey stripes and center hood and trunk stripe. I think they would compliment the gills nicely.

The plastic gills were made by us, and come in lots of colors. We will have them listed on the site by Saturday afternoon. We also sell the solid Stainless steel versions in the mirror finish, and we have two styles. $59.99 for both.
Our prices are the best. The material for plastic, or stainless costs the same. $59.99 for either. The work for us on either material is the same. If you compare our stainless costs to others stainless costs, you will see that we have reduced the stainless prices.
So you can either let me know what color and style you would like. Or they will be listed by Saturday afternoon.


We will also have some other new parts on the site at the same time. Stuff not on this site yet. We have some new engine cap lids on the site now.

Thanks guys, Roger

Do you have the capability of making these in a finish similar to the RS "Midnight Silver" Rims? If so, you have a sale.

How far do they stick out/how thick are they? I'm thinking im going with vinyl since they are flat, but if these are pretty thin, and dont stick out much, they'd be great. Any pics to show how far?

The stainless steel is .050 thick, this is slighty over 1.25 mm.
There are some pictures on this thread that show them for the angle you are looking for. It really up to each persons individual tastes.
Review the pictures on the entire thread, see what you think. I can tell you we sell multiple sets of both styles every day.

Thanks, Roger

Plastic and stainless gills are now on the website with color choices. And both of our styles.
Special thanks to primus, for great pictures.
