Anybody know if the rear bow tie can be removed, glued on, bolted, etc. I want to do some graphic work and the rear tailgate is too busy with the bow tie, SSR, etc. Thanks, Scheide.

Bowtie removal

The rear bowtie is held on with double face tape. There are two holes in the tailgate that are used to line up the bowtie, with the two studs that stick out from the rear of the bowtie. Be very careful when you try to get it off, its on like superman stuck it on

Yeah, what he said...

...plus a gentle hand with a heat gun (or borrow a hair dryer on high setting).

When useing a hair dryer be careful not to bubble or discolor paint.I've done it before. It starts to discolor first. then its to late!!So be very carefull & go slow, pulling bow tie @ the same time your heating it.

It helps to let it sit in the sun on a hot day when you use dental floss.

At my friend's (yes I do have one) body shop they have an induction heater. It's essentially a powerful magnet and it heats the metal panel, not the emblem so the emblems decals, etc just peel right off. That's the best way to go if you have access to one.
