  • How soon after delivery will any of you consider debadging the c8?

    itll probably be a year of ownership and when and if possible Ill debadge the c8...if it looks good amd can be done...

    over the years ive used dental floss to remove trunk badging and the years those gm chicklets were put on...

    it seems the c8 might nit have the indentation and alignment hole on the front as well according to one of the youtube videos seen...

    if thats the case...and none of us know for sure..then Ill consider dental flossing all possible badges that dont leave an indentation and or hole ...

    maybe leaving the corvette lettering on the back as that usually has indentations...

    first year leave the car as is....

    maybe the second year pull off when and where possible..

    anybody else even thinking about this?

    all depends on how subtle and integrated the badging is over time.

    sacrilege thoughts?

    The only badge that I think is on a strange place is the stingray emblem on the trunk. But I surely have to see the car live to concider which emblems stay and which are not. Currently I think the frontemblem and the Corvette lettern on the back are pretty cool.

      Assuming the exterior colors do not change, I would go with a dark, metallic color, Shadow Gray, and carbon flash badges. My present c7 is night race blue with carbon flash badges, and all the badges and lettering all but disappear, other than the Corvette badge on the nose.

      The fact that the badges are still there, but hardly noticeable, adds to the stealth appearance I was looking for.

        I wouldn't take the badges off. I don't advertise though, no dealer sticker/badge, no plate frame, none of that.

              I tend to agree the rear trunk badge often gets the axe....yet seeing the vehicle in person over time usually brings me to the end of the first year before i decide...

              the front badge looks nice but if their is no indentation or positioning hole...in the bodywork...then I think many will remove the front badge over time as well..

              im jist shooting the breeze and wondering what you guys thought on the subject..

              the c8 is stunning as is...yet its clear so many will do things that personalizes their vehicle (usually a youtube video)

                I’ll have to wait to see in person but from the pictures I really don’t like the Stingray emblem on the rear. Here’s what I did with my C7 , maybe the same on ME car ... Click image for larger version

                  Thanks for bringing this up JB. I've frequently, on several vehicles, used fine fishing line to de-badge...especially on my Jeeps that stick a large Jeep logo right on the front edge of the hood. I do like the Corvette carbon flash badges though, so will keep them. Agree that possibly the stingray on the rear deck might have to go, and of course no dealer logos, or license plate frames with wording. Always add a high quality, plain license frame though.

                    Since I. Not buying immediately I'll have time to see the badging on other cars before deciding, but my thoughts are to remove the Stingray logo and possibly the Corvette lettering on the back. I like the Stingray, Judy nit the location. And the letters are just a pain to clean around.

                    What I decide to remove I'll do right away, before I get it ceramic costed.

                      Some remove them for convenience of cleaning purposes and some remove them for the Mystique to what the car is. The people who remove them for the latter most likely will remove them sooner as to MOST people out there, no one will know what this car is and the beauty of this car is that it does look like a $200K plus exotic.

                        Maybe I'll put some Ferrari badges on it.

                          Corvette letters on the rear fascia: If they last as long as 20 minutes, that would only because I got lost staring at the beauty of the car for the first 19.

                          The rear deck Stingray emblem will be gone in the next few minutes after that — perhaps to be relocated to the waterfall or somewhere inside the cabin???

                            Back in 1968, I had a friend with a new silver C3 convertible. He put a yellow, Ferrari like shield on each side in front of the doors. Except, instead of a prancing horse, on the shield was Snoopy the Dog (from Peanuts) at the wheel of a roadster car. It was well done, and funny.

                              One of the first things I noticed on the configurator was that the carbon flash badging is standard, the chrome the optional choice. GM watched the percentage of C7 owners who choose carbon flash basing increase during the generation, and again listed with the C8’s — making the latter standard.
