monoblocks vs. 3 piece.

Monoblocks are lighter. I'm not interested in drag racing so much as road course though. Hence the suspension and centrifugal blower instead of the top mount.

I woulnd't get jack for these Savinis.

The paint chips too easy and the finish as a whole isn't that great. My GM 21s held up twice as good as these.

Don't get me wrong, they are stunning wheels. Savini is just made for all show. Not for actually driving much.

I'm not a fan of fender badges, but that is just me. I am going to take the "CAMARO" off of my car soon. It looks cleaner without the badging.

But if you like it, that's what matters.

I was thinking something like the Tom Henry one.

NOT the 'THR' obviously, but the type of 'SuperCharged' emblem he uses. It's perfect imo.

Don't bother getting the real badge though. Just get some paper and cut out a Z, R and a 1.
Then cover it in tape for structural integrity and make sure you use the right kind of wire to attach it to your bumper.

Where at.

Not trying to steal your idea but I like that a lot.

I actually would like to find the SS logos in orange for my car. I considered painting them with some acrylic paint and a small brush.

But also, I'd like to find the same orange for 'SuperCharged'.

Emblempros will make one I'm almost positive of it. Otherwise, just go to any vinyl shop. They'll get your SS's orange for like 30 bucks.

That's a great idea... I want to get my red SS emblems in in black. I bet Emblempros would do it.

I forgot about doing it in vinyl. I'll ask Xmicro_SS.
