Black Chevy Bowtie Photos - How to Black Out your Chevy Bowtie
We've got several threads on this site regarding how to black out your Chevy Bowtie. I figured I would pull all of them together in one main thread.
Just curious, how many people have done this. Let's get some photos!

Just more of a general discussion on putting stuff over your bowtie and how to get it painted.

Thanks, Steve. I was actually thinking about the best way to do this yesterday evening. I looked a few on ebay but people were asking about $50-$80 for them.

I finally got to mine this weekend. The tailgate bowtie looks especially cool because of the chrome that I left around it. I'll post a picture in one of my albums as soon as I can get it. I also "debadged" the tailgate. All that is on the tailgate now is the bowtie. No dealer decal, no Silverado decal, no FlexFuel decal, and no trim package decal. It looks quite nice.

It's really simple , did this to bothof my Silverados that I've owned . Here's the one that I did today. Directions: pop off the Bowtie , sand it ,spray paint- $0.96 at Wal-Mart , clear coat $3.46. spray it with base coat 3-4 times , clearcoat it 3-4 times ,let dry ,glue back on. Really simple , the coats of paint is your choice.2003 Silverado Z71 Extended Cab 5.3L, K&N air filter , Flowmaster exhaust , Blacked -out Bowtie , leather interior , up-graded to 17's

Is vinyl the best option for the rear one? I just want to black out the gold part. I'm trying to avoid taking it off the truck tho.
