Replaced my front and back gold bowties with black bowties.

Unfortunately - getting the tabs free for the front bowtie was a problem for me and I ended up breaking all of them off :(
I did the same. :(
Tried super glue repair which I thought might work but when attempting to install the black OEM replacement badge, they just broke again.
Three of them in and under the radiator I believe.

How hard is it to remove a front lower panel to look for these?

Replacing the front upper grill now...expensive mistake.

I've seen the kits but decided to go with something I've done many times. I used plasti dip on mine. $4 and 45 minutes done. They'll stay black until I decide to remove the plasti dip.

Sorry to bump an old thread. I was searching for a way to make the emblems black at home, saw the multiple recommendations for Plasti Dip, and then realized black wasn't my only option. I ended up trying to match the blue on the Bolt EV lettering. I think black would have looked better, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Y'all are spending too much for this mod... just throw a bag over the area and cut out a box around the bow tie. Mask off the chrome to the bag. (some people just spray it over the whole thing, but I like to keep the chrome)

Get spray plastidip in your favorite color from your local big-box store. Spray a few layers on. Remove tape and bag, clean up a bit with a razor. Done!

Here's a video of someone doing a Nissan logo:

Anyone removed the badges?
Working on blacking out my bolt. Seriously considering removing the back Chevy logo & Bolt badge.
Looked online but couldn’t find any good pictures of what it would look like.
Someone in this thread removed the logo but I could only find a close shot.

yes!
Thinking about doing the same, and removing the “bolt ev” badge as well.
I wish the shot was from a little further away to get a better idea of how it looks
@Boltar did the following to remove the bowtie "just heat it up a bit and use some dental floss."
There used to be better pictures, @ProfessorBolta had posted some but are no longer available.

The car will look better without the rear bowtie, because it acts as a drip-focus for water running down the rear window, and thus it leaves dirty streaks below it down the window every time you use the window washer or when it rains.
