Bowtie color/badges, you gonna change em?

This has been posted randomly across different boards, but im curious whos keeping their car stock with how it looks (bowtie and badges ONLY), or alter it a bit?

im debating back and forth about using some vinyl transparent tape like a grrrrr8.com member did on his pontiac to change his arrowhead from red to blue..looks slick, cheap, and durable.


if i go with the summit white maro, im debating whiting out my bowtie on the front and the SS symbol on the back make it black like my rally stripes, but who knows?

also debating getting the SS holden badges for the fenders (depending on how big they are and the actual placement on the car) as well as a 6,2L badge when holden makes em from the 6.0L pontiacs *gag*, or perhaps the v8 flag, so many decisions!

so what are you plans for BOWTIE OR BADGE CHANGES ONLY?



remember people, keep it on topic, i dont want insurance quotes in here

I dont know I'm getting black with either cyber grey or orange stripes i nan SS/RS. I really don't think the gold bowtie and red SS badge would look good. I think A chrome bowtie would look good, not sure what to do with the SS badge though. I may just get rin of the bowtie and find and SS badge to put in the middle

I like the blue bowties that they had in '69...probably go with something like that on the front and take off any others...or just take off all the bowties all together...I dunno.

I'll keep the stock SS badges...those are fine. It's the first SS I've ever owned...I've waited a long time for those SS badges.

I really don't mind the gold bowtie, but it sure sounds like it will be one of the most customized parts of the 5th Gen.

I like the black with chrome outline like on one of the photoshops.

Even though Chevy has thrown around the SS badge in the last couple of years its good to see someone who still looks at it with pride.
