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.

Sorry, I did not paint it. I used the vinyl oerlays from Big Worm Motorsports. I took my front emblem off to ship to them so they could install the overlay after I messed the fist one up.

Super easy to put on, and if you don't like how you put it on just peel it off and try again.

I did the bowtie delete and the the instructions stated to wiggle while pulling. To my surprise it came off without breaking.

Man, i tried to take off the bowtie but it would not budge. The whole bumper was flexing. Thought i was going to break something but i really want to do this mod so any other tips would be welcomed.
