red bowtie

i have seen a lot of cars on here with the red chevy logo on the front and/or back, how much was that and how much trouble to remove and replace?

i think it would look good on my red one to have that

I believe you can take the emblem off and either paint it or put a pre-cut vynil on it. I haven't decided whether I want to match with silver or throw some black on mine.

I originally wanted to get a black Camaro and black out the gold parts of the bowties. As a fellow VR owner though I think I'm gonna leave em - not sure how the red would look, and the gold looks decent in contrast to the bright red. If you put em on, pics please

Don't have pictures right now, but we put vinyl on ours & it really POPS!

These are pictures taken @ a Fresno photoshoot & mine is the VR w/ the front license plates on left (of ABM)

If you look further down @ the individual pictures, you can really see it.

i originally put red on the front only (pic #1) , but got into a accident that ripped the whole front bumper off...so i decided to put black on the front/rear and i would say i prefer the look of the black bowties, although both look good IMO

Black is the winning bowtie for VR IMO. Looks so sharp.

Here's mine. Glad they send two for the front because with all the angles, it was a b$&%$ to get it just right. Ordered mine from Big Worm Graphix.

Or go to your local auto parts store as they have it pretty cheap (<$10). It you don't like it, peel it off..
