Okay Camaro experts, I could really use some input here. I just bought my first (well actually second) Camaro. It is a 68 RS SS 396/375 and the previous owner had repainted it black from the original Z-Z British Green code, removed all the badging and wheel and rocker panel chrome trim, and blacked out the grille. I am putting the SS badging and RS chrome back on along with a new grille with chrome leading edges where the factory correct is painted silver. The grille should look like the one on the 68 RS SS on the front of Chevrolet By The Numbers 1965-69. The paint is good and I will leave it like this for several years before I consider repainting.
Now the question; do I put the SS stripe back on? The correct stripe would be the D90 that goes down the quarter panel and door. With all the chrome back on the black and chrome look will be sharp and I am undecided about the stripe. On the one hand the stripes all look great, on the other hand I wonder if the stripe will take away from black and chrome look. Does anyone have a picture of a black RS SS with the prroper chrome and the stripe? I have not been able to find one yet on google images.
It will be fun to hear what everyone's opinion is on this?
