DIY Custom Front Bowtie

Without removing the bumper, pull off the front emblem, mask it off, scuff it up and paint. cost me 6 bucks!

Reach through the grill and pull down on the two visible tabs on either side of the bowtie. Then turn the emblem counterclockwise (if I remember correctly) as you pull it toward yourself. It should come off without breaking anything, and don't be afraid to use a little force. You must turn it because there are two vertical tabs you cannot see or get to. This is what I had to do. Let me know if this works. Just push it straight in to put it back on.
