Looking for 2014 equinox black bow ties

Can anyone point me in the right direction to find full replacement black chevy bow tie? Or do the camaro/Silverado ones fit? Not looking for vinyl overlay

How hard is it to change the bow ties. Its almost a shame to do it, as this is the only Chevy i've owned that didn't have warped emblems. But the black would look nice.

Re: Looking for 2014 equinox black bow ties

The gold part of the bow tie is just plastic. I left my emblems on my Nox, drilled a hole just deep enough through the gold emblem to get a small "L" shaped pic under it and then just started pulling to gently break the gold part of the emblem out. The powder coated inserts have double side tape on the back and just stick into the chrome surround of the bow tie. Please note that they do have a specific orientation to fit correctly. When I first started to install mine, I thought I had the wrong emblems because the wouldn't fit correctly. They look symmetrical, but they're actually not. One I simply flipped it over, fit perfectly.

My Dad used masking tape and a can of black spray paint to make his Chevy emblem black. It looked fine years later.

That would be my method too, if I wanted black emblems. I have much more extra black paint laying around, than I have of spare money.

$49 seems a bit steep
