    I'm just about finished with my restoration project and was wondering if I should go back with the decals for the z28 pacakage. Here are a few pictures of the before and after of the car. I already have the same gold decal kit that you see on the before pictures so all I need to do is take it to a shop that does the install of the decals and have them put on professionally.

    Let me know what you think.

    I guess it depends on how original you want it to look. Mine has the gold decals on black and I wish it didn't.

    Yea I painted the grill and the light bezels the same color so they matched the decals. My dad thinks i should leave it the way it is. Just curious on others opinions.

    Thanks for your input.

    going back original or not? were they the type that GM put on originally? do you like them? i think gold goes good on a white car but that's my opinion. the cars looking good with or without the graphics.

    Yea they are the original decals. I think they will look good also and I'm strongly leaning towards it. The powder white paint really will make them pop too. The guy who painted said the same as you it would good with or without them.

    Thanks for your input....

    Looking great now, I vote for installation of decals ... you already have them, put 'em on !

    Thanks for the input..... your's in the picture is looking very nice also. Seeing a few of them with the decal package on them helps me make the decision.

    It’s your car so only you can decide for sure. I’m a Non-stripe/non-decal type guy and prefer the stealth-sleeper look. Just my 2cents.
