You pull off the grill and theres literally 2 plastic nuts that hold on the bowtie. Pull on them and spinning on them will take them off and the bowtie should push right out.

What do you mean by "anybody got ideas?". He explained perfectly how to do it. You have to take the entire grille off to get at the bolts behind the bowtie. Start by taking out your headlights (two plastic clips holding them in on the back) and your corners (snap out). Then your grille pulls right off, and in behind you'll see the bolts on the back of the bowtie. There is no easier way to do it.

Gonna agree with sisk. Those colors sound good in my books.

Reminds me to call a body shop, buy a angle grinder

oh no dude its cool lol i should have made that more clear. You actually dont have to take off the headlights tho. i just got under it and undid the middle 6 clips and then if you just pull real slow from behind the signals them last 2 will pop right out. I was gonna put something blue in there to match my air force tag but that would be too hard i guess ill just go black and then some clear coat. Im gonna order some clear corner lights while i got it off cuz that orange just dont work . Thanks guys

DO NOT DO MONSTER GRAPHICS...

That logo is more overplayed than Re-runs of Friends

Do this:
