Exclamation SS badging your C5 Camaro

As Mike Joy would say (Barret-Jackson Auction), " Back when ...")

Replace your bowtie emblems with Chevy SS emblems, this changes the looks of your C5 Camaro dramatically. It sets your C5 Camaro apart from the rest.

Removing the front grille and rear panel bowtie emblems with authentic Chevrolet SS emblems is easy and what makes it nice Chevy designed the C5 Camaro allowing you to return back to the bowties since no permanent modifications are performed.

I'm not sure why others haven't figured this out.

Note: this is "not" the SLP SS badge kit. SLP basically uses decals that are flat. These are authentic Chevy SS emblems from 1st gen Camaros made of metal (albeit aftermarket reproductions). Keep in mind you need to do a little grinding easily done with a Dremel tool.

Take a look

I don't think that's a problem, RS emblems from 1st Gen Camaros are available same as the SS emblem, check with Classic Industries or Rick's Camaro.

I want red SS emblems in the new 5th gen font. As of right now no one makes them for the grille or the back. There is a couple of companies that are working on them.

But they are not in the 5th gen font. What I mean is the way the red SS's look on the stock vehicle. I need them exactly like that only bigger for the grille and rear.

I remove the pins with the Dremel tool and use two sided adhesive 3M tape. Can you show a picture of your SS emblem, is it a decal or metal?

Go to

http://chromeemblems.com/

Give them an image and dimensions, and they should be able to make an emblem to meet your needs. I guess you can take the small red SS/RS emblems now on the 2010 then get a 1st gen SS Camaro grille emblem and then match it's size with the small red 2010 SS/RS emblem font. I'v heard good things about this company, they can match almost any emblem. Don't forget the 2010 Camao has different curves (angle) on the front grille and rear panel emblems. Let us know how this works out.

Back when... Chevrolet cars that wore SS badging were feared by the competition, everyone knew SS meant performance. Albeit the 2010 has performance yet it really doesn't have the fear factor. The 2010 Camaro is a very refined automobile. I want my 2010 Camaro to have that fear factor. You can keep your bowties yet bowties don't look mean. I want to keep the competition guessing what they're going up against when they see my SS badging. BTW recent modification have put 387 hp at my rear wheels, my next modification is a camshaft shaft swap and I should have 500 hp at the flywheel then comes a 125 shot of nitrous and I won't care what mustang or challenger version I come up against and don't forget your typical 2SS/1SS Camaro is no problem.

If you owned a 1st or 2nd Gen Camaro you know what I mean. It sounds like this is your first Camaro.

Looks good!

I see you took the small SS off your grill, are you going to take the red SS off of your trunk lid too?

I like the bowties on the center of the grille and trunk but I'm trying to find a way to replace the "SS" emblems on the grille and trunk with "RS" ones. Anyone that doesn't know anything about the new Camaros is always doubting that I have the RS package.

My plan is to have just the retro SS in the middle of a heritage grille, and a retro SS on the middle of the trunk lid. No bowties. No factory ss badges. Clean and simply stated. I think it will look awesome.
