    Yea, my kid said the same thing, but the paint on them did not turn out as well, they will get re-done in the same color and two-tone as the lid, with some clear on them as well, or I might be a 'hoe and sell them for the right price, lol.
    shadybx7 and shadybx7 like this.

    They are the original ones off the cover. In one of my previous quotes, I very cafefully removed them and then re-applied them with some molding double sticky tape. Of course they were cleaned with some mothers mag wheel polish and then waxed before they went back on. The GM Perf badge is the large one from flebay.

    That's why I found one from another member for like 40 bucks, the original one is siting nice and toasty in the attic for resale, if it comes to that, and I might have the GTO covers I had on there for sale.
