That looks great.

What did you do about the SS emblem on the driver side of the grille? Can you take a shot of where it used to be?

I removed it. There is no easy way to remove it. i searched the internet and came up with BS about pinching tabs together. When i tried it, I couldn't get my arm in far enough (I don't have the arm of a skinny 15 year old kid ). So I decided to see what would happen if I just pushed straight back on the rear bracket peice with a flat head screw driver. That worked, it just popped out. There are no scratches or anything so I am happy.
Anyway:

If you use these on the back then I would think it would go where the bowtie is.
Too larger to put where stock SS emblems are.

It looks good Tim. I would skip the SS on the rear, but that's just me. If you like it go for it.

I like the change in the front.

Now that you have the front SS grill emblem off, does it help you understand a better way to remove it?

Looks good Tim. I think BackinBlack is right, if you want to add that SS on the back then I would replace the bow tie.

i really like the look of the SS in the middle on the front.

I just dont like that there isn't any RS anywhere on my car. The normal person wouldn't know that it is a ss/rs.

Don't kill me, but it looks like you just put 2 big S's on the front of your car. More alphabetic looking ones vs the fast lookin stock ss emblems. But I also like the Chevy Bow-Tie emblem, so what do I know!!

The word Retro comes to mind.... Just a pointer as to why one would do this,
