Ideas for Removing Bow Ties

I just removed all the logos on cobalt except the SS badges on the sides. Noticed after removing the front bow tie there are ugly holes. I was thinking of putting a vinyl sticker overtop of the holes. Has anyone done this or does anyone have ideas or suggestions?

I've seen people put an SS badge over it. Doesn't look that bad.

Plasti dip! All other emblems are removed from my car too.


You could also buy some touch up paint or take your emblems to a paint shop and have them sprayed body color. Then the emblem will blend in with the crossbar. I jus thad my front bumper repaired and painted. I thought about having the holes filled but the crossbar has the top/bottom portions of the bowtie shape molded into it. I thought it would look weird without the emblem even if there were no holes.

Painted mine - the rear one still looks great, front one is all nice and rock chipped. I'll redo it, but with Plastidip this time.
