Anyone making an SS center grille emblem?

I know Revolution is making an a new grille with optional SS center emblem, but does anyone know whether there is a SS emblem made to replace the grille bowtie on the stock grille? I know others have asked, but figured I would ask again or see if anyone has figured out how to modify an 69' SS center emblem to fit the bowtie imprint on the grille.

SLP will be releasing a center-grille SS emblem in the vintage script that directly replaces the bowtie.

Revolution is supposedly making their center-grille SS emblem also available as a direct bowtie replacement for stock grilles but I've yet to see evidence of it. I'd prefer it since I'd want the contemporary font more so than the classic.

I don't think the old school SS would look nice... You would have to replace the new version on the back too or it would just look strange.

What do you mean both styles? Both the heritage and contemporary script or both replacements for the front and rear bowties?

Well, I'd like to see both styles, then... The old SS script just doesn't work for the 5th Gen IMO. You have SS on front and back and then Camaro all in teh same script only to have a rounded SS in different font/script. It's a great idea, but not in that font, IMO.

I'd like to see a 5th Gen font SS for the front.

I've never seen SLP state that they're also making one in the modern script, Antivenom. Could you please provide a source? While I wait for your reply, I think I'm going to shoot a PM to the SLP rep that surfs this forum.

Why make a replacement part that only fits a 5th generation Camaro w/out offering a 5th generation script?

I'd like to see the flag emblem available as well. Think that would look cool on the back...or maybe even the front.

I agree, the older SS emblem doesn't look right on that grille.

I have had this emblem made into a vinyl sticker and it is now on my front window, in the black part of the window. Also had an 8 inserted over the red/white/blue. Looks awesome, I think. I will post some pictures.

All I know is my dealer said that modern script would be available eventually, as the rep supposedly told him that. So it's a matter of he said, she said in my opinion.

Well I got kinda tired of waiting so I called SLP, and now Im bummed out.

SLP has no time table on when the classic SS front and rear emblems will be available, as they are busy working on the hood, wheels, and spoiler.
They have no plans at this point for the current SS font emblems.

If I don't hear or see anything from Revolution this week, Im going to buy a 69 SS emblem for the rear and re-paint the front bow-tie.

I have been trying to get a hold of my dealer to see what the hell is going on with the current ss font emblems. If SLP says they're not making it now, then I guess I will do the same and get the old style. Kinda makes me mad that no one has released something as basic as a front and rear center emblem...
