gmpartsdirect had it available for me...unless something changed in the last 2 hours.

I had it all the way to checkout, but decided to wait for an answer here on the forum.

Ordered mine yesterday from GM Parts Direct. Sorry I didn't know of Gary's. Oh well, just wish it would arrive soon. Can't wait to see it on the car painted with the SS emblem in the middle.

Here are Heritage grille photos by BPOIRIER (painted) and DON O (unpainted) side by side for comparison. Hope you guys don't mind me resizing and reposting your photos. Both installations look good.

I too had planned on going unpainted but the plastic in the border area is a little shiny and it shows the plastic flow from the moulding process. The grille area is textured and it looks good without paint. Should have mine painted and installed in a few weeks.

I don't mind at all. I wish I knew how to resize pictures. I purchase mine from Gary at GARYSCUSTOMZ.COM 850-866-8883

Just wish it was sunnier out yesterday so the IOM would have shined. Its a red car on cloudy days

Don't mind the stupid scratch made while installing it on the closeup pic. crap... Car is dirty. IMHO, I like painted over the dark gray, metallic matte finish.

Looks good. But, maybe it's the angle, but the SS's look upside down...

I have been debating on getting a 69 blue grill and rear panel set bowtie for the camaro heritage grill I have on order, or even get a 68 camaro standard grill emblem and also the Chevy 6 cyl emblem.

They come with posts that stick through the grill and a mounting bracket for the backside. I received mine last week... just waiting on the Grill now.

I think Tag is right... they look upside down.

That's because it's a whole lot easier to put the emblem on when the grill is not installed...

Vintage emblems are easily available. What about the NEW Style Large SS for the front grill?

I tried it both ways, but crap now I'm going to have to go look at it again. Good thing I can get to it without having to remove the front if it needs changing.

It's not the SLP but a repro 69 front emblem. Crap on the upside down, you guys got better eyes then me. Guess I need a quick fix and to think I put a blob of silicon on the nut/threads.
