    I added a stainless stell Chevy emblem to the front grille of my Tahoe. Even though my truck is completely black, it is a lot better than that ugly yellow badge.

    To install was easy. You would be surprised how easy it is to take the grille off.

    Have any photos of what it looks like? I personally don't think that the gold/yellow chevy bowtie looks all that bad. Where did you get a replacement, btw?

    I really think that I just do not like it on my truck. Maybe it is because it is all black. I guess I really don't notice on other Chevy's. I actually won it on eBay. Here is the link to the company that it came from.

    Interesting. This is about the only thing I HAVEN'T changed as far as badging on my Tahoe. Every badge has been removed except the one on the front grille. And mine is all black as well. There's a pic in the new members forum.

    That does look good with no badging. I am not sure if it is easy to remove the emblem on that model though. If it is anything like mine, it is really easy. There were four locking screws (the kind that quarter turn and lock), then the grille is held on to the sides (between the headlight and turn signal) by just a clip that pulls out and snaps back in. I think something like that would look good on yours to.

    I was also trying to find some new Z71 badging. I would like to have something that is like a gray scale. It would be noticable, but hidden on the paint.

    Badging questions

    This is new to me.

    Does "badging" refer to any and all Chevy/Tahoe emblems?

    I've seen a few rolling around town minus the stick-on Chevy and Tahoe badging on the doors and rear end, and love the clean look.

    What's the best way to remove them?

    Could there be fading or other outlines where the badging has been removed?

    Ive debadged a few cars, its really easy. Just get some dental floss or real thin fishing line, and work it behind the corner of the badge, and just wiggle it down and side to side and the badge will come off. Use some goo gone to get rid of the leftover adhesive on the car, and then wax the area as soon as you are done, b/c thats virgin paint under there! If the car is considerably faded, you will see the outline of the letters. I see this most often on red cars since red is so unstable. Just take your time and it should work just fine. I have seen people use a hair dryer to heat the adhesive first, but I haven't found that neccessary.
