    lookin good... is there any residue left when you take off the factory ones? if so, how do you remove it. $70 for 2? is that about how much they usually run?

    Eh yeah there was some residue but i took it off very carefully with carb cleaner.

    Ive seen single grill emblems.. which is what I used go for $50/piece, So I guess..

    very nice bro. I did something kinda similar. I removed my factory Z badges and put on a hockey stripe. In the break in the fender I put in some old school Z decals on there. I've been looking for an original to put on a billet grille.

    So you want it to look like this.





    I like what you did with the emblems looks good, I mostly like that its different from all the other 69 emblems which seems to becoming ever more popular.

    They look awesome, I see them going for about $40 each on eBay...I may have to pick them up for my camaro once I get it painted.

    I had thought about it a long time ago then when I removed all my stock ones I liked the sleeper look and sucker kills. Now theres no way in hell to hide that something evil lies within so I might go ahead with it.

    Looks good. Seems high for used emblems since we sell new ones for about that price.
