SS Grille Emblem Installed

I replaced the bowtie with a genuine Cobalt SS emblem!



Now it looks the way GM should have made it! So what do you think?


Yea, tho I cruise through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no Turbo,
for Torque art with me. Thy rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

It looks good man! I did a similar thing, but I had one made from 24designs.net. I used the red bowtie shape because the conflicting angles of the bowtie and the angle I cut the stripes was bothering me, so I wanted the bowtie shape to blend in and I had the SS put on it. I like how yours looks!

Yours looks good too! I have a 24designs SS bowtie, but I decided not to use it. It is silver with a black SS. I thought it would look cool when I ordered it, but no so much when I got it! I am happy with this look though!

Yeah, making the bar shaped like a bowtie is a super FAIL by GM

Yeah, at first I didn't want to do it because of the bowtie outline on the grille bar, but it doesn't look too bad at all! What I wanted to do was put an SS emblem into a stock chrome bowtie but it just isn't feasible without some severe modding to the bowtie base.

I tried, but the inside of the bowtie base is oddly designed. It is uneven and would need ground out with a dremel or something drastic.

yeah I've taken my bowtie apart. that's exactly what I'm saying. I'd buy a spare one and start hacking that thing apart and custom fabbing a new emblem. that's just me though. I'm really into fabrication and custom work lol
