Help me decide on Emblem Placement...Please!

I have recently had some rear fender gills and Camaro script emblems painted a darker shade of the Red Jewel tint that goes with my darker ghosted rally strips. The gills are already on and I like the subtle contrast. I am now having difficulties on "where" of "If" to place the script emblems.

1. On the front fender, in the "typical" location? (Note; 3D fender vents will be installed in the next week, so these would be centered above the vents.

2. On the lower GM GFX rockers toward the rear below the Drake Gills?

3. Leave them off for a "clean" debadged look?

In the pics below, the script is NOT centered, etc and are just taped on for demonstration purposes. Thanks for any constructive criticism or suggestions.

PS I also need to decide if I should drill holes through fender or "glue" them on with 3M adhesive

Leave them off for the de-badged look. The car looks better without it IMO. The vintage letter of the Camaro emblem you have does not go well with the Modern Camaro IMO.

I'm liking the rocker placement. More unique. If not there then leave off

Not a fan of the old school mixing with the modern. I'd leave off.

thought about it, but really not enough mounting room AND they would take a beating from "tire throw". Looks as it'll be rear rocker or nothing.
