04-06 Arrowhead Emblems

GTOG8TA.COM will soon release reproduction hood and trunk emblems for your 2004-2006 GTO.

Who wants to pay $100+ for a GM? Not us. That's why we are making these for you. Shade of red is slightly different but unnoticeable unless side by side.

We are thinking of doing the bezel in chrome, in addition to the stock satin. Would anyone be interested in that or another color?

Hmm... stock replacement for cheap would be awesome.

Is there any way you can do flat black/black trim, with the red arrowhead inside?

I'd buy those two, quick as hell.

We could probably do flat black. We would need a lot more response though to do a run that way. I'd actually prefer that over chrome too.

Will they be more fade proof than the factory pieces? The factory emblems fade to orange with very little exposure to the sun.

While I would like to know the above, as well...

If he can do the arrowheads in flat black, I would gladly buy overlays if and when they fade. I have Graphite overlays on my arrowheads, right now.

YES! These will be better than the originals. Our test car has 15k miles on it, but two ugly yellow emblems. Ugh.

These will be higher quality and will look into the flat black. Carbon Fiber anyone?

So, are we talking "similar" in size... or you can't tell the difference?

Sometimes, repro stuff for these cars can be quite a toss-up. I heard horror stories of Repro SAP grilles.

"similar" in color. The emblem on the left is GM. The one on the right is our repro. Again, even side by side, they are very close.

I've heard about the grilles too. We're looking into doing our own!

Great. I'll post here when in stock or you can click the link in my above post.

Help us spread the word on these. If these go over well, that means more repro's in the future!

Satin black would be nice.

I'd be in for a set with the chrome bezel. Hell, even the stock satin would be fine.

We could probably do is the one with the black bezel and then get a black overlay for the arrow.

I don't know how many manufacturing runs we can do in various colors. Keep the suggestions coming though!

Osie! Overlays from Grafxwerks are only like 7 bucks. And they're EASY to install. So...

eric... just having a black bezel, and stock color arrowhead isn't too much of a headache to replace.

I'm sure people would be on board with that.

Think that is what we're going to shoot for. We'll see if they can do a sample in black with the stock red.

Hey guys,

Second step is complete. The bezels look great!
Our first run will be in stock satin, chrome, and black.

Estimated price for these will be around $35-$50. GM ones are $150! Should become available over the winter.

Rears are on the way next.

Will keep you posted...

Nice!

Once the rears are done, I might be getting myself a set with the black bezel.

I'd be interested in these. I would probably at least buy the front arrowhead. Black/red or satin/red, either way, both look nice. The front on mine is so badly faded. I have a black overlay on the rear arrowhead already.

In for the chrome set. The red fell out of my front emblem.
