Need Opinions on Camo Wrapping Grille Emblem
Been a while since I was last one here (my apologies) but I wanted to get some opinions from you guys/gals.
I am going to camo wrap my grille emblem to match my interior (Bone Collector seats/wheel) and I have two different types of grille emblems but I am not sure which I want to have wrapped.
I have the OEM emblem (red w/ chrome trim)and a solid black emblem (w/o chrome trim).
I'm not sure whether or not I want the chrome trim around the camo or not.
I need YOU to help me decide her. (:
Here is a truck with my front end(excluding grille) with a camo emblem w/ chrome trim:

If your going to have them done in vinyl just make sure you get at least a 5 year warranty. They will fade...just a matter of when. 3M vinyl is a 5 year warranty. After that your on your own. The only upside to vinyl is you can take it off a redo them.

I called for a quote and everything and I was told $25 which sounds like a good deal to me.
I will make sure to find out which kind they use but I'm sure it's high quality with a good warrenty since they specialize in vehicle wraps.
And as of now, I'm more leaning towards doing the OEM emblem with the chrome trim. Mainly becuase, later on down the road in the future, I am thinking about getting maybe Rockstars or Jesters or Ballistics (Machined Black w/chrome accents) and adding some camo accents to them.
For ex: Adding camo to the star on the Rockstars (leaving a chrome trim around it) or adding camo on the red accents on the Jesters, etc.
What do you guys think about that idea?
And if I go ahead with the mod this weekend, I'll be sure to add pictures Monday!
EDIT: I also need to update the pics in general. My only pic was from when it was on the lot. LOL

Can't really see the emblem.... sorry camo joke. I like the camo look & those look & on the emblem its like one of those subtle double take kind of things which in my opion is a good thing. Have you seen the camo wheels? http://images.search.yahoo.com/image...mb=fqIy7VtmWwk
I thought I seen a set of Rockstar wheels done like this.
