I have been thinking of going with the smooth look and removing the emblems. I just wanted to make sure I have this straight:
Front emblem = alignment holes
Side emblems & deck-lid = no alignment holes

Sound right?


Thanks for the help

Yep. That's what I have seen so far. Good luck!

I've got no side emblems, my car is very stealth, no one would suspect that it's a Z06 :sneaky: .

That's a very flashy stealth car. The side ducts are a dead give away but then again it could be just a FRC. With the body color and wheels you have one fine ride. Very clean.

Why you ask? I'll tell you! :p The deck and front emblem I want to remove because it would be 8923749734 times easier to wash and wax it. I don't want my side Z06 emblems because of the HP rating on it ... I don't think its good looking really. I like the way they did it in 2001, but I do not want to put those badges on because then people just assume I'm a 2001 (obviously).
So I guess if I stuck badges on it, they would be special made badges.

On my last C5, I actually bought a new front emblem, removed the stock one, waxed/polished/buffed the whole area, then applied a new emblem. You could just do that yearly! :D:D

02PdiddyZ06,
I make the custom emblems I will post pic's next week they are at the painters getting the Z painted, send me a PM if intressed. They look like the stock emblem with a custom HP engraving or I have some that say supercharged, example 520HP/NOS, SUPERCHARGED, 455HP etc... And then I have some that are 90% complete and I can machine what ever you want :yeadog: I will post pic's and prices next week.

They look great,


Mike

I also thought about removing the nose and deck badges. They are in the way when I wax the car.

I don't care for the front and rear badges and if the front didn't have alignment holes...I'd have removed them...

Not that a big a deal so I didn't bother...

I like cars with minimal badging...

I think I'd like to change out my side emblems to the ones that say SUPERCHARGED. Having the 405hp emblem on a mag car is false advertising.

Anyone know wtb and what they cost ?

I know they're expensive. Jimmy has a set that he bought on-line from some Polish guy (No Polish jokes please! My last name DOES end with a SKI :NoNo: ) Check with him for the web address.

I have a set made that say Supercharged. I will post pic's next week. As for the pricing I have to talk to my machinest and painter and see what they need. What should these go for?

I think the stock ones go for $25.00 each.

I was thinking $60.00 each or a $120.00 a set and these are custom machined for your need SUPERCHARGED or 520HP/NOS, etc.
:cheers:
See Ya,
Mike

That's an interesting analogy, so along those lines, I'd say it's more like having a goreous wife who happened to have a couple of visible tatoos, & then getting those tats removed with a laser :D .

Hey D.J., thanks for the props :cheers: .
