I just ordered the black Chevy bowtie kit for my 2017 and was wondering if anybody else has swapped out their gold bowties for the black ones yet. I'm curious if the gold ones just pop off and have adhesive behind them or what and if the new ones stick right on in the same way.
If you are talking vinyl overlays, they apply right over the hideous OEM gold bowtie emblems. Remember, prep is key for a successful mod like this.
Why are you referring to to them as OEM bowties? Is your dealer selling them? Please note, these are not OEM but are only aftermarket decals. How much are they? Price them against online retailers and ebay to see if the price is right.
My preference is to buy a small sheet of vinyl, apply it and trim accordingly. Best results IMO.
My chrome vinyl overlay (last resort as there is no replacement bowtie emblem available)
