Thoughts on Black Chrome "CAMARO" letter placement

EDIT: Decided to place it in the middle, a couple pics attached


Hey guys,

Decided to get the "camaro" fender emblem to put on my back trunk lid, but deciding as to where exactly i should place it.

Originally i was going to put it directly above the rear bowtie (pic #1) but now i think it would be better to place it on the left hand side to balance out the location of the bowtie and "RS" emlbem (pic #2)

Pics arent the greatest

Thoughts?

I personally wouldn't put it on the back at all. But if thats what you have your heart set on, then yes, it would look better on the left to balance the RS on the right. Make sure the end of the "O" lines up with the inside edge of the taillamp, about half an inch to the left of where it is in your picture.

But again, i think it would look better without it. Maybe put it on the interior trim panel on the passenger side of the dashboard??

i got it from user name "orange10s.c.". He has a site called Gary's Customs, i asked him if he could do this and he did. Cost was $65 for two, but I only needed one so the cost was $32.50 + $5 for shipping.

here's his profile page and you can PM him if interested. Thanks for the input!

TOO large for the back IMO. The sides would look nice.

I had a similar thought after I painted a set for the fenders.
I thought it was far too big for the left side, i had the same balance idea, but it's just so big compared to the RS that it made the balance worse.
Center might be ok, but I just bailed on the idea altogether.

What's it like on the right side, lined up with the RS?
