Just use painters tape and tape off the chrome part. Or...you can pry the goldish part off...but be careful when trying that because it could break.

you will need bug and tar remover also. IMO i would just tape the chrome off on the front one prying it off seems like a little bit of a pain

My sig thanks to Gcobalt

make sure you tape off any surrounding areas from overspray if you decide to leave it on the trunk while you paint

well if you want to paint it, use a blow dryer, and heat up the bowties with that. Than take a screw drive and just work the driver under neath each of the bowties. Then paint them. If you wan to remove the fron one, then there are two bolts behind the grill insert. When you pop the hood you have easy acess to them. Un bolt the bowtie fron the car and either pry of the gold part or just tape around the chrome. But be warned, do this in a closed area. I painted my bowtie several times because god chose to make the wind blow right when i painted mine each time. Now there are imperfections in mine but for now it will have to do as ive done it multiple times.
