    nice explanation!
    but i recently did my bowtie on a 2000 silverado and this is what i did i just used a flat blade screw driver to pop out the emblem bc mine didnt use screws or bolts it just clips in, and i used the spray on bedliner to paint mine bc i have an 11 year old truck so while the paint isnt fresh off the assembly line shiny its still decent bc i wax it, and i didnt want the emblem to outshine the paint, so i used very little sand paper and the spray on bedliner and in my opinion turned out great check out my pics!!

    I did both of my bow ties with this stuff called plastidip. I sprayed 3 coats of it and that was it. I like this stuff cause if it catches a rock and scratches you can just peel it off and do it all over again. I love it and its very easy to use

    Looks great! I like how you left the black outline on the front.

    thanks. i wasnt really sure how it was going to turn out but overall im happy with it. It took a little long since i had to make sure i got all of the tape around the black and right down int he crack so no white would get on it instead of just painting it all over

    So the magic question- what do you use to reattach it to the tailgate?
