    Default Blacked out grille bowtie and chrome rear bowtie

    New to the forum, just got a 2011 crew cab this past Jan. (traded in my 08 ext cab). I plan on going with the black and chrome look for this truck. I ended up reading every DIY post on black bowties. So I finally decided to do mine to see how it would come out and it wasn’t bad at all... So then I attacked the rear bowtie But instead of taking the whole emblem off I just took the top bow tie out (used fishing line) and decided to keep it chrome. id post some pics but i have no service to email the photos to myself will do later.

    love the forum BTW.

    any Suggestions on chrome handle kits? And good websites to order from?...

    On my dads 07 Silverado the gold colored cover on his tailgate bowtie fell off somewhere while driving, but not just looks like he has a chrome bowtie. lol I'm thinking of pulling mine off for a color change that I haven't seen yet will post pics when it gets done.
