Lightbulb Anyone know where to get the Black chevy bow emblems (front and rear Bow Emblems)

Would like to buy them for my black 09 ss tc. But haven't been able to locate any or even a price. 1 is on the hood and 1 on the trunk.

But Skoal made a good point. Nothin wrong with buying the ones on Ebay, but the fact that it costs more to get them ordered than to just paint them. Its fairly simple and cost effective.

Any questions about the Balt, all answered here:

Just paint it. Give it a light sanding with 1000 grit sandpaper, spray paint it, then hit it with some clear coat. You can do it for under 10$

The fronts are removed by two 10mm nuts behind the grill. The rear is a little trickier but a hair dryer and fishing line will do. The hair dryer you use to heat up the adhesive in the back and use the fishing line to work behind the bowtie to separate it from the trunk deck. Then use goo gone to get the rest of the sticky stuff off. You can tape off the silver boarder with masking tape. Then after you have painted it simply clean the spot you are going to put it on and use 3m adhesive tape to reattach it.

As long as your surface is clean and you use several light coats your paint won't chip. The clear coat will help with that as well.

yea cheaper is def. better, but i just know that sometimes alot of people like to keep all there stock stuff that way if they ever want to go back they can because they have everything original still. both good options, just whatever you personally prefer really.
