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.

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.
