I like that!! I'm thinking about taking the bowtie off the back and getting 'camaro' out there. So I wouldn't need those to let people know

I was going to remove the rear bowtie but I have two holes on the deck lid that would need to be filled. I think the 2010's have that.

That is true. I have thought about that black bar or whatever it's called. I'm torn on it.

I was thinking the same thing. Apparently they sell magnetic ones. So that makes it easy if you don't like it.

So did the 2011 have the holes behind the rear bowtie? I've been pondering removing mine, but the holes have been holding me back.

I took off my rear bowtie & wanted to leave it plain, but it had the holes so I covered them up with the Sparks SS.
I like the Sparks SS, so I'm glad it had the holes!

The only cars with holes are 2010 models with build dates of May 2010 or earlier.

OP, looks great with the lettering removed. I took mine off within a week or so of having the car. Now I have one set across the trunk lid and the other in front of the passenger seat on the dash.

Thank you...and I like the idea of the lettering across the dash. What did you use for glue?

No the 2011 does not have pins....use fishing line and take your time...
I had mine off but put it back on....
I'll look to see if I have pics of both ....

No glue. I used automotive grade 3M double sided foam tape. The same stuff they used to put the lettering on the fenders. Easy enough to take off if you don't like it. But I think you will.

I was thinking about doing this, I have a V-flag I want to put on instead.... but some ***** put their door into the "O" AND the "C" on either side of the car and now I have a little indent where those letters are. Is there a way to fix that? I also have not one but TWO dings on the passenger side door crease, all the way into primer.

Seriously, what is wrong with people? I even park away from other cars and for some reason people will still park their stupid minivan or whatever next to me. It's like they just NEED to park near other people.
