Blacked out rear deck panel???

I have a 2013 gt/cs and I'm trying to find a blacked out rear deck panel. The only ones I have seen are the ones that are on the rtr website with the logo RTR logo all over the back. Does anyone sell just a plain old, clean, blacked out deck panel?

The rtr one doesn't have the logo on it. And it's only vinyl anyways if it does

I went with the rtr too. Didn't like the faux gas cap. The rtr is only in the bottom right corner.

For $150, I had mine painted. Have you considered this option?

Unlike the 2011, 13s/14s have a diamond clear coated plastic panel on the decklid.

If anyone tries to paint a 13/14 panel, be prepared for a ROYAL PIYA. That surface coating is as tough as nails and isn't at all easy to adequately scuff for painting. Even after significant sanding, just to break the glossy surface, it has to be sprayed with an etching primer for the paint to stick.

I didn't like the "GT" cap center or the black panel. Made the car look like it had a Zorro mask across the back. Here's what I did...

Thanks. Bought it on eBay. It's a 4" flat medallion. I diamond clear coated it for outdoor use.

They had one other USMC medallion, but it was the official chrome bordered Marine Corps seal. If you are thinking of doing this type of mod, these medallions aren't direct overlays. I had to remove the imbedded "GT" piece and grind the humped cap center out, leaving the faux cap attachment clips, to provide for placement of the flat medallion. I then sealed it in.

After scoping the costs of the rear deck blackout piece and the cost of the smoked taillights, I ended up with a can of plastidip, and a can of lens tint. What do you guys think?
