Badges below the stock camaro

I have seen alot of badges beolw the GM camaro lettering on the front fender, notwithstanding the total removing or replacing, what do you think about adding decals or badges? Just a preferance question, already made my choice.

I actually debadged the "CAMARO" letters on the side of my car, along with the square GM emblem. Having said that, I think the CAMARO letters on the front fender look sharp, I've just always debadged my vehicles and it's been a recurring trend ever since.

I hear ya on that, the ones currently on mine are not the original, when I had it painted the letters & GM had to come off, I sat there staring at the car for a good 10 min before telling them to put them back on, then I turned around and ordered the shield decal. There is only 1 time when I regret that choice, and that is every time I wax.

I've wondered where one could place Camaro logo emblems on the car. I really don't think there is a "good" spot for it. It doesn't look bad there, but I'm not sure it really flows. It almost seems like too much.

The sheild took me a good 15 min of going around the car and holding it up (I even scotch taped it up a few times), standing back, moving, etc. "Too Much" is something I worried about, with all the paint that I put on it I decided that day this would be the last badge I put on, and there is only 2 more areas I will add paint to (condsidering joining the hockey stripes now that I have the led sidemarkers & painting the HP on the hood). I just seem to see alot of badges when admiring other Camaros down here.

yea, i'm thinking about removing the GM chicklets and leaving the CAMARO on there.

i removed the SS from the front when i installed the heritage grille, and it looks perfect with just the bowtie.

i like the rear how it is with the bowtie and SS on the side. i won't add or delete anything back there.

I've wondered if there are chips in the "chiclets" that aliens use to track my movements, or maybe it's just the NSA... someone's following me right now. gotta go!

I was pretty determined to remove those, but for some reason when they announced that there would no longer be the square and the "GM Performance" badge in the engine bay I changed my mind. Not that I think keeping them on will increase the value one tiny bit, but it dose kinda distinguish the pre-order cars.
