    Some people use acrylic glue or 3m double sided tape.

    I wonder how hard it would be to take a piece of metal and make one myself, rather than buying another one or reusing the ones that I have.

    I used 3m doble sided molding tape. I adhered one size of the tape on the back of the emblem and used a razor knife to etch the same chevy sign. Use rubbing alcohol to clean the service and let it dry COMPLETELY. Then peel the other side of the tape off and stick it on. Hold the emblem on for a minute or more, making sure that you put a lot of pressure on the corners so that no end sticks up and allows water to run through.

    Default Just finished up my 2010 bowties!

    I finally had to do something this winter, ice fishing is done where I'm at and so is hunting so I put a little time in changing my bowties from ugly gold to black.
    I have never done anything like this but thought it turned out pretty good, thanks to all the people on here posting how to do it.
    I took off the grill bowtie first and then the tailgate one-first I scuffed the bowties up a little and then cleaned them up good- I then shot them with light to medium coats of gloss black krylon fusion 5 coats about ten minutes apart then about fifteen minutes later put my first coat of krylon clear, every five to ten minutes another light coat.. I let both sit overnight and wet sanded them with 3000 grit then used rubbing compound and waxed..Here is how they look

    Nice. This might actually be the most popular mod on the site.
