Blackout rear Chevy Bowtie

Does anyone know where I can find the rear black chevy bowtie for a 2013 camaro? I've seen some stickers/vinyl ones but am wondering if the glue just comes off after a while. Should I get the actual black bowtie or a sticker of some kind. if you have some pictures please post, or if you know of any good places for some blackout options let me know. Thanks.

You can check my pictures. I plasti dipped it. Cost like 7 bucks took an hour for taping off and such. Super easy, looks good, lasts through multiple washes. Don't like it, it peels off. Comes in multiple colors

I painted mine with a nice charcoal metalic paint after taping and sanding them a bit.

for black there is many options, plasti dip, vinyl, diy painting etc if you want some custom ones with color matched painting and various other styles contact overhaulengines on site, they are a bit pricy(compared to options above) but superior in quality

EDIT: noticed you live in Texas :P lupe is out of san antonio if your anywhere near there.

I have 3m carbon fiber on mine. Got a sheet off eBay for about $15 and I already had done my laptop cover, the back of my cell phone and the bow tie on my Tahoe long before I picked up my Camaro. A guy at my dealership asked me where I bought them... I told him that I just laid them on and cut to fit.

i didnt want any chrome so platidip or buying a 70 dollar black bow tie were my options. Vinyl is fine but I dont think see anyone covering the chrome with it. Can you?

I used a vinyl. Cut it out and heated. It's been on for two years and still looks like I put it on yesterday.

I bought a replacement black billet aluminum rear bowtie from carid.com. Here is the link, and below is a pic. I love it.

Plasti-dip is the cheapest way to go. A spray can cost you about $6 and if you mess up, or it stats to wear, you can peal it off and reapply it. One can did my front and rear bowties, SS emblems, and right and left Camaro badges. I put on 5 coats and still had over half a can. You can find instructial videos on YouTube.

Also, if you decide you don't like the look, you can remove it with out much mess and you didn't invest as much money.

AAC paints them also. GRN ENV has cyber grey to match the stripes.

It is actually a nice DIY project too.

What would be the best way to blackout the chrome edge of the bowtie without the centre?
