Zl1 black emblems

So I just picked up my 20 zl1 about 2 weeks ago, and the chrome on the zl1, bow tie, flow tie and lock button are driving me crazy. I'm trying to see if anyone sales black emblems and cant seem to find nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Blackened would be great. I vote for the dip so you could remove it. I am also a fan of removing all and leavjng the front as is.

They sell custom painted bowties and badging. Any color combo you want. Or at least they did before they stopped taking orders while relocating.


The don't sell flowties (nobody does that I am aware of). The flowtie is part of the upper grill and not a separate part.


I've seen posts of people wrapping the door lock buttons and those have turned out pretty well.

Did you order them at the dealer or online?

Never buy anything from the dealer that you don't have to, dealership will be 2x the cost on most things

Here's one I've used a few times, there's a number of them out there

Try RPI designs. You can order custom painted bowties

I wrapped my bowties with vynal 2 years ago. Looks like they came black. Hasn't peeled or come off at all since. Door locks can be done too. The vynal didn't cost much.

Wildhammer, they also sell the ZL1 emblems to replace the chrome ones for the hood, back bumper and the front grille. Only bad thing is they have white foam tape on the bottom, you can see the white when the emblems are on, so I would suggest using 3M instead, easy 5 minute fix...

I got these as well but got mine off of Amazon for 19 and change and they have the gray tape like factory, I also got the 1LE badge in black from the same place and put them on the rear bumper, now if they can come up with a 2 tone for the front grille then I'd be happy.

Did you check out Emblempros? They make some great high quality stuff.

So I looked up zl1 emblems on Amazon and pretty much all of the options had bad reviews regarding cheap paint job and falling off. Is there a brand that you recommend that Amazon sells.

I will try Emblempros
