RS/SS insignia

I guess I am curious as to why you want to add the RS emblem. If you have an LS you can add a bunch of stuff to the outside to make it LOOK like an RS but it will always be an LS. If you check out my garage and photo albums I have added Rallye Stripes, 1LTwheels, a Heritage Grille and HID fogs. Does this make it an RS? No, it is still and always be an LS, just my spin on upgrades to the ride.

My signature has not been updated since last year so some mods do not show at this point.
To be totally honest. I like the way it looks. I know that is always going to be an LS I just like the way the Insiginia looks by the light. It's different, ya know?
I attached the photo. Its 4,5,&6. Do you, or anybody have an idea of what its called?

Emblum Pros makes one for the LS that I saw on one our club members LS's. Regarding the RS, can't help you there.

Checkout:

Click on 2011, Chev/Geo, Camaro, Front bumper and grille, then view illustration which will show you the part number and price. All of the parts required for the install are there although I do not know if they will work on a Heritage grille. Install looks pretty straight forward.

Can you tell me where you got the "SS" emblem from? I just installed my grille yesterday, but would like to replace the Bowtie (came with the grille) with the SS. Yours looks awesome. Nice job. I was scared to try this by myself, but once I started, it was pretty easy.

For the bow-tie, I broke out the vertical tabs from the center, then drilled two small (7/64) holes at the base of the horizontal tabs. I then ran small black tie wraps through the holes and zip-tied the bow-tie to the grill. I worried about retainer clips coming off. This approach is solid and won't mar the grill if I decide to take it off.

For the SS emblem, I bought the stock emblem and plastic mount and then cut and trimmed the mount to "snap" under the lip of the horizontal grill bar. The numbers in the picture are where I cut it. #3 goes around the vertical brace in the grill. It worked out pretty well. I tie-wrapped it for good measure but it snaps into place pretty well. I like it because it provides a "borderless" mount. I could do a better job if I had another to cut on but I'm happy with it.

Parts (from a place where you can get GM Parts Direct - shipping/handling included):

92208704 - Grille insert assembly - $222.04
92194260 - Bowtie - $37.63
92225495 - SS (red) - $13.26
92225407 - Nameplate bracket - $4.47

The worst part of the whole thing was that the bow-tie and SS emblem were both stickered: MADE IN KOREA

There's always another way to skin a cat so I thought I'd share. Pics below:
Works good, and can be done with the grille on! I have to wait for warmer weather to do the RS however, froze my butt off.


Thanks!

Thanks for the write up Vuduman67. Very simple install, and not rough on the car at all. Took a couple of hours, with taking my time and being extra careful. And I can;t recommend Gary at Garyzcustomz enough - SUPER high quality paint work - FLAWLESS. And shipped out quick.
