    I was hoping to remove the badge without removing the airbag/cover as shown in the Chevy video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JI7G...ature=youtu.be Doesn't look too difficult. My concern is that the material behind the emblem will not be smooth or smoothable to apply the God's head badge with adhesive.

    Thank you for your help. I like the 2" milled badge by Colex and would like to mount it if it will stick. If I remove (destroy) the stock emblem, will the material be smooth enough to mount the Colex emblem with the pre-applied double stick tape, or should I remove the tape and use silicone?

    Still there Jack!
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    Thanks Dave......can you add a photo for "WildMarauder" since I think your (our) badge is the same as the one he wants to mount!!??

    If it is the same "WildMarauder" I just used Black RTV to mount it and had perviously painted the engraving black for contrast!!

    GOOD LUCK!!

    I would like to see the picture. I thought about painting the engraving black like the trunk and grille emblems, but was afraid as the others are glossy and the one for the airbag is matte so I was afraid the paint would not completely wipe off. Do you think the tape won't stick behind the old badge?

    Hey Wild..............I used Black Model enamel and let it partially dry then wiped the whole badge with Lighter Fluid to remove all but the engraving.......came out nice!!

    My OEM badge had no tape behind it!!

    PM blazen71 and I'm sure he'll send a photo........meanwhile I'll look to see if I still have one!!

    It is the Colex badge "LIMITED EDITION" "1 OF 11052" that came with pre-applied double stick tape. Will it stick, or should I remove its tape and apply black silicone? I currently have the stock emblem with a tape-on smaller God's head that overlays the "Flying M" in the center. Looks just OK but I think the Colex badge would dress it up.

    Had Danial make a custom wheel badge for the SB. I could only get it to stay on with a little drop of Superglue. Silicone would heat up in the Summer and the badge would slide off. Tape was useless as well.

    Thanks for your help. Yes, that is the badge. It matches my grille and trunk emblems. Daniel painted the two exterior badges but not the small one. It looks better painted.
