    Since my C8 is all Black, I feel that the carbon flash emblems and letters are very tasteful, and I'll be leaving them as is.
    In fact , the Chrome rear license plate frame that i had on my Arctic White C7, with the Stingray emblem, is now on the C8, and it looks out of place. I'll be looking to replace it with something black chrome or carbon fiber.

        Well, funny you should say that. I was recently on a Facebook site for C8's and the owner was trying to find out where to buy a C8 hood badge. (Someone tipped him to the Museum's store). Anyway, his plan is to remove the badge from the nose and (along with his new one) place it not on the fender but on the quarter panel immediately in front of the rear wheel well. I think the C8.R logo is affixed there on the race cars.

        But regardless, isn't the nose emblem molded (in the middle) to the crease of the C8 nose? How would one flatten it without destroying the chrome (or black chrome) emblem surround? Interesting idea but above my pay grade.

          Although I did think about changing the back from C O R V E T T E to C H E V E T T E just to freak people out.
          Have you thought about changing it to C O R V A I R?

            Don't do it. It is not a 49 Ford.

              If you ARE planning to remove any badges, be cautious using a heat gun to soften the adhesive:
