GM Licensed 1LE Emblems from

So my 1LE emblem for the hood  arrived this week. Used some masking tape and autoglym rapid detailer to clean the surface.


Used a pound coin to space the letters and a sharpie pen to trace the position onto the masking tape.


Stuck down, removed the masking tape and it looks really good. It gives the black wrapped hood a much nicer look.


It was a bit on the pricey side but the quality of the product and end result is 10 out of 10 .


Decoding the VIN Number on a 2013 Camaro 1LE

The VIN number of each Camaro 1LE can be used to identify information about the vehicle.
A VIN number such as 2G1FT1EW9D9153638 can be decoded as follows:

G:     General Motors (GM).
1:     Passenger Car.
F:     Camaro F-Body Type.
T:     S = 1LE 1SS Manual or T = 1LE 2SS Manual.
1:     37 Coupe 2 Door Notchback Type.
E:     Restraint System Installed.
W:     Engine Model/Type – LS3 (Manual) / J= L99 (Automatic).
9:     Check Digit (Can be 1 to 9).
D:     Model Year C=2012 D=2013 E=2014 F=2015.
9:     Plant Location – Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.
1:     Unique Number
5:     Unique Number
3:     Unique Number
6:     Vehicle Sequence Number

The Camaro SS 1LE is only available in a manual 6 speed transmission so they will never have the letter ‘J’ as indicated above.
