Are chrome RS emblems available for grill/trunk?

My wife doesnt like the red RS emblems with IBM, and she asked me if replacement ones were available in chrome. I searched for a while and found nothing. I hope someone here can help!!!

If anyone has done this, can you post some photos so I can show her before we try it? Thanks!!!!!

I've considered those... has anyone installed these on the trunk and the grill instead of the side panels? I can tell how these would be placed on the trunk, but can the emblem on the front grill clip be removed the same way?!?!?

The one on the grill is attahed with adhesive to a clip. You just need to remove the original one and place another one in its place, they are the same size.

Thanks,

Great! Thanks for the info!

Are the mirror stainless available without the black etching in the center?

Acetone

Tape off around emblem and dip q-tip in acetone it will take the red off and it is chrome underneath. I did mine first day I got it. No worries.

Do either of you have pictures of the emblem after removing the red?
