Belongs on a corvette.

It's similar to the one they used to use on impala's in the 50's-60's. Is there another Chevy V8 symbol to use?

Maybe if you had an SS, but with a LS :no:

If the bowtie doesn't look right, shave it.

How about this

That would be the best thing to do if you still wanted your rear bowtie. Can't go wrong with the vinyl inlays :thumbsup:

I agree that it looks good on yours, but it looks like too much chrome on black imho

Mine fell off years ago and I sold the replacement one that I got when it was under warranty to someone over on TV.

Debadgeing was one of my first mods

but after shaving the moldings, I decided the sides was to plain so I added OEM badges

I have de-badged every vehicle I've owned in the past 6-7 years. Haven't found one yet that didn't look better afterwards. My TB is black and it looks great. I even blacked out my bowtie in the grill. The gold only lasted about a week after I bought it. Couldn't stand the way it looked.

Are you doing your crossbar emblem? Is your crossbar black or chrome?

yes, and it's chrome. I'll think it'll look sweet.
