Opinions please

My 67 has after market fenders on it so it has no holes for the badges. Should I put the emblems on the fenders or leave them off

Thanks

Cool Re: Opinions please

I think you should add the badges.
If you already have the badges with posts, make a paper template and then use a step drill.

Re: Opinions please

Put them on. Chevrolet cars are required to have flags and numbers!!! They don't look right without them; not to mention that is what makes the '67 special.

We donít need no stinking badges.

I de badge my Protour builds.

Factory style and placement for original and day 2 cars are required. IMO

Re: Opinions please

I say leave them off for multiple reasons:
1) No holes in your fenders is always a plus
2) As John said above, I debadge everything - even my new truck. Nice clean look
3) They suck to clean especially when you have wax stuck in and around them
4) If you are a millennial it's less work - refer to #1 and #3
5) I'm out of reasons - refer to #'s 1-4

Then you'd like a C7 Corvette Coupe.

There are approx 3000 Emblems on the car including the headlight lenses door sills and other places.

The most are found on the rear window shaded area. Looking closely you will see the fade is comprised of a matrix of C7 Corvette crossed flag emblems.

Beautiful car! I'm going to let others chime in on badging or not. I think your car could go either way. I think if your on the fence about badging, buy the stick on ones and leave them on for a while. See if they grow on you and if you like them or if after a while you can't stand them. You could badge just one side of the car to get a visual comparison.

Since there are no holes, at most I would only put stick on badges if you like them.
Looks good without tho.
If it were mine, I’d stick a bumble bee stripe and the displacement numbers on the cowl hood.
But I like stuff a little different.
