Chevy bowtie "Big pimple" on the rear end

I do not like the bow tie in the middle of the tail lights it looks like a big pimple. As soon as mine gets home its history.

As a owner I like it and here is why. I use it to hold onto to close the trunk. I am not touching my paint or spoiler.

To each his own good luck removing it. It may have more than just glue ataching it to the body keep tha in mind. If you don't like Chevys don't buy them. I think for the most part the chevy emblems are tastefull.

Lets see a SS for a SS, lets see a RS for a RS, and lets see a RS/SS for those ordered that way. Lets not get to carried away with the branding.

See thats what I like, Thats why they make Vanilla & Choclate. I might take those GM badges off also, I have them on my Caddy and now that Julie brought that up they are a pain in the butt to clean around, they stick out pretty far.

There's 2 holes behind the bowtie if you remove it, it isnt taped on like the side badging.

I think your nuts if you think the Bowtie is a problem, you probably should not be driving a Chevrolet.

To each his own but complaining about that is complaining about the whole car IMO*.

So the side badging can be removed fairly easily?

These little buggers were the first to go off the C6, the Solstice and the Tahoe when we got them.... They catch the towels and get all twisted when you wash them. Plus I cut myself on them the first time I washed the Solstice.

Very... light/even force and they pop right off. you may need to clean the adhesive but thats easy too. Don't use any petroleum based cleaners unless you want a dull spot.

yep. Just heat the badges up a little bit with a hairdryer or heat gun if you're careful with it. then use some monofilament fishing line to get in behind the badge and 'cut' through the foam tape. it will leave a lot of tape gunk on the car, but a little goo gone will get it right off. then make sure to give the car a full wash/wax because there wont be anything protecting the clear coat where the badges were.

They make an automotive specific goo gone. i used the regular stuff when i did my car, and its fine as long as you wash it right after and dont let it sit.

I wouldn't. I just use elbow grease and soap. A dab of soap in your finger tip and just keep working it... Yes its a PITA and takes some time but all 3 vehicles were black so didn't want to risk damage to the paint.
