Blue Bow-Tie Emblem?

Replacement Emblems for 2012 Silverado 1500

Blue Bow-Tie Emblem?

Postby McChevy [OP] » Nov 07 2013, 4:57pm

I would love to replace the gold bow-tie emblems (both grill and tail-gate) with the old Chevy blue emblems. Where can I find them... if I can?

Just pull them off and paint them the blue you want. probably the cheapest and easiest way to do it.

Possibly Ebay, or you can convert your gold to blue with Plastidip or paint.

I am looking at these decals, but I don't want this to turn out looking "janky". Any thoughts on decals that are placed directly over the existing bow-tie?

there are tons of places that sell vinyl that you could put over the top. I ordered some carbon fiber vinyl for my interior from [url]autovinylsolutions.com[/url] and they had tons of other colors and options

It would look as janky as the person doing it. As mentioned above, vinyl coverings are used in many colors or styles. If you take the time to do it right, it will look very good. If you can use, windex, hair dryer(maybe), a credit card(squeege), and an xacto knife, you can place the vinyl over the bowtie, and it should look pretty good.

Or you can search for a real, authentic, blue bow-tie to put on.

This is what I'm looking for, it fits '71-'74 C10 pickups. Can't find a reproduction to fit my 2012.

when I was deployed my wife ordered blue vinyl $10 and she has no skills for that kind of work. looked great everybody thought they were painted. lasted a year with car washes once a week and still worked until I wanted them painted. local shop wanted over $120 for both painted, went to wally world got paint about $5 and worked great. took off the front and taped the back to paint 30 mins later was good to go to a car wash. yup I tested it lol. lasted about 8 months still with car washes every week and no problems. and the vinyl's are still holding up on my trash cans outside and there exposed to harsh weather, rain etc, and still look good on there lol.
