To answer both questions I had an aerosol can made at a local automotive paint supplier. They can make Cyber Gray or any GM color. I removed the front bowtie and just taped off the back one. Sprayed primer, paint and clear coat. The supplies cost me $60 and I didn't even use 1/10 of the cans. I had estimates around $300.

I want to have mine painted black but I am afraid the dealer will overcharge me for that.

sup chevymuscle311! where abouts in clovis do you live? I live in Fresno, close to Clovis on Armstrong and Shields! We had a couple of meets already at FatJacks, there was like 5 of us there and we all had different color cars, would have been cool if you would have been there also.

Maybe we should get together and you can show me how to paint the bowties on my car, I want to paint them black to match the stripes! Nice meeting you by the way!

Looks 1000x better than the gold. Should have come that way from the factory.
