    Just remove the whole grill assembly. Once it's removed you'll be able to access the 2 nuts holding the bowtie on the grill...

    And the best paint to use it Krylon Fusion... It's the pest paint for plastics that I've ever found... (Except for doing it professional style at a shop with all the equipment... LoL)
