Blacked Out

hey everyone. i just painted the chevy sign on the front of my cobalt black today. since my car is silver and i have black rims, black headlights, black chevy sign, soon to be black tinted tail lights, do you think that my car would look better without the trunk emblems or with the trunk emblems blacked out like the chevy sign on the front. i cant decide what would look better to me. i know it would take a lot of time to black out the rear chevy sign and "cobalt lt" emblems but i think if it looks good it would be worth it.

My personal opinion would be to shave as many emblems as you can, I think it makes the car look so much cleaner, on my car, the only emblem I have is the front bowtie, which is black as well lol

Pics would help... photoshop it. i think the black rear emblem would probably look awesome.

If the choice is between taking it off or painting it black, why dont you just take it off, unscrew the one for the front you already painted and hold it up to the trunk? If you like it, paint the other one, if not leave it off.

My personal taste is blackout the emblem in the back too. It'll look stock but different and I dig it. But I also see the appeal in the shaved look. But personally if your car is silver it'll prolly look better shaved.

I also have a silver balt (mines a coupe) I took the rear bowtie off as well as 'ls' and the dealer stickers first thing when I got the car. All that's left is 'cobalt'. IMO it looks waaaay cleaner.

I had my bowtie black at first but I color matched it later.\
