Talking LOOK AT THE A$$ ON THIS (PICS)!!

OK so I had a lil time to play with and I thought I would do some quick Photochop of the Camaro.

Original pic




Debadged!!! I Love a clean butt!!! Notice the shark fin has gone too!!




Debadged/No fin and reverse lights removed!! I think GM could have found a more better place to put these, as its more cleaner without them.




Debadged/No fin and reverse lights repositioned!!



Let me know what you think. Its not the best PS and I rushed it so sorry if you can see some imperfections.

Good work, but I'm not too keen on the reverse lights put between the brake lights like that. I'd rather have them on the bumper....or better yet, not there at all! But, good work over all. Now...black in that back center piece.

After looking at those pics, personally I don't like the look of the car completely debadged. As for the lights, isn't there a minimum distance that the lights have to be? So that may not be legal.

I completely agree about GM's placement of the reverse lights. It's one of my biggest gripes about the Camaro design wise. They look slapped on and don't integrate very well with the rear.

With that said, I don't know of the legal implications of the placement of these lights and how that may have effected GM's decision on the design. Also, by placing them on the sides of the license plate, which I think looks much better, there may be an issue with mounting non-American rear plates because of the size/shape difference.

I do know this, I'll be taking my CGM SS to the body shop for them to paint the reverse lights for a tinted look that will blend better with the darker color of CGM. That's my solution for giving it a cleaner look (I'll also debadge but leave the bowtie on the back)

That is Awesome. Much better than the original spot, but must say I love it either way!

actually, upon further inspection the original way looks beefier. I think I would like it better the way they have it now.

IMO, Taking away the light placement looks softer.

The shark fins completes the setup. Wouldn't want it removed.

Looks good IMO with the reverse lights next to the license plate and the fin removed.

debadged looks great only because it's one more thing you don't have to clean around.

I actually prefer the bowtie and SS badges in place.

The reverse lights I'm indifferent about. They only place I don't like them is between the taillights.

What about making the Bowtie a single reverse light? Or, do you have to have two lights to go backwards?

Not to rain on your parade...but that's because those people "who get paid millions" have to adhere to standards, laws, and etc. Go check out a European car, with a European license plate...can you see the issue?

Then notice how the C5 to C6 changes included a "fixed" license plate location. Also take a peek at the license plate area of any car destined for Europe and those that never leave our shores. Having room for their long plates makes the car more Europe-friendly. It's the same here: Camaro will be exported to Europe, and Australia among other places...

The decision of license reverse-light placement was a tough one, not quite as simple as you might think...

Oooook!! But I believe only 500 are going to UK not sure about Australia, so surely those should be modded slightly differently. The ones going to UK will be altered to RHD so moving some lights would be a doddle! They could have a European rear, ready and waiting to go when its being built.

I would imagine they are limiting the changes that have to be made...however insignificant...this is the same explanation behind the fuel door catastrophe.

didn't they say in the beginning that they wanted to make it easy to produce both RHD & LHD versions so as to make it easier to penetrate the european & aussie markets

With more limited numbers being sold elsewhere it makes even less sense spending more money for a different bumper

It doesnt have to be a different bumber. Just cut the holes out in a different place that all im saying. If you can go to the trouble of LHD to RHD then surely punching out holes in a different place is simple relatively speaking.
