Smile Removing Chevy Emblem from the back of my 2LT

Hey guys. Just got my Camaro 2 days ago, and really want to remove the Back Chevy emblem. Can anyone please tell me step by step on how to do it? it seems like their are plugs or something holding it in their.

Thanks

If it is done with adhesive, which most are today, you run a piece of DENTAL FLOSS behind the emblem then remove the residue with Goo-Gone. Simple, Fast, and Cheap. You may need to make a handle up to anchor he dental floss to so you can get some leverage.

There are two holes in your trunklid that will need to be filled once you remove the emblem. There's a picture of it around here somewhere...

Take a look at this thread. The car is shown with the bow tie removed and there are two holes, i am guessing for mounting.

So, you can take it off, but how will you fill the holes?

just wait until aftermarket companies start making replacement trunks and hoods. it'll be a bit of money, but you'll more than likely be able to get carbon fiber.

I think it looks ugly when you don't have anything there, but that's just me. And I like to wear my bowtie -- loud and proud hah. It's definitely not worth it to have those holes.

I've not seen any out yet that will fit the '10. They will come out eventually but you may have to wait a couple months.

Pop it off and put these on.
http://visionmotorworks.com/chssemsip.html

Not sure if it will look perfect, but for $15 it might be worth a shot.

*edit: Oh wait you have an LT, right? Don't do it then.
Do a google search for LT emblems maybe?

Personally, I like the stock emblem. But I imagine you’ll find something cool to cover those holes.

No idea. I found that link in another thread. You might want to contact the seller for the dims.

I think I might just paint both bowties (front and rear) black where the gold is now, leaving the chrome edges. You could do that with any body color and it might look pretty good.

If any of you photoshop wizards out there read this, can you whip up a couple?
