Default Rear Bumper C6 Emblem Like Waterfall Emblem

Bought a C6 rear bumper C6 flags, broke the tab off the back and stuck the emblem to the rear of the center console. Kind of like the waterfall emblem on the Corvette Convertible.

I'm surprised someone hasn't done this before! (First one I've seen.)

Looks good, but you should have got the front emblem as the rear one, the tip curls up a little.....I did that first, then I got the painted waterfall from RPI like in the Vert, and put the emblem on that.....

I went back and look at the flag on the back of the car, it contour to the rear panel so the tip is up, wish I would have known would have put the emblem on my rear tail since my stock one is not chrome. Oh well live and learn, the front would work perfect, since it slope slightly down and that how the back part of the center console is. I might change it, but had to waste the emblem.

You can put new tape on it, there was a vendor on ebay before that sold just the replacement 3m tape pre cut.

Oh didn't know that. Not sure if I re-use the emblem. I half to buy a front bumper emblem if I decided to take it off. Just saying don't want to do damage to my console trying to get it off.

that looks good, but if it was on my car I think I'd be chewing up my right elbow on it every time I drove the car. Is it really more out of the way than it looks?

There are many fun ways to use the emblems. Here is the 100th Anniversary emblem on the floor mats. Have the red one on the cargo divider. Also have one on a lunch box, lol. Another post was correct in the the front emblem lies more flat than the rear emblem.

OP, your placement looks great. Good job!
