Professional Service for Professional Results

Many guys look to remove Chevy Bowtie emblem as a simple and quick way to customize the look of their Chevy truck that will help set it apart from other Chevy trucks on the road. As a professional who has done many car and truck emblem removal jobs as part of our professional detailing services, there are numerous reasons guys choose to remove the Chevy Truck badges and emblems:

  • Many guys hate the look of a gold, Chevy Bowtie logo.
  • Removing the Chevy Bowtie makes for a "cleaner" looking truck.
  • Removing any factory add-on's makes for easier washing, waxing, and detailing of the truck exterior.
  • Sets your truck apart from the herd.

Remove Chevy Bowtie Emblem:

Chevy Truck Bowtie removal step 1

Typically, the car or truck emblems that contain the actual company logo cannot be removed due attachment pins that go into the sheet metal of the car or truck. In the case of the Chevy Bowtie as it is commonly referred to, can be removed as there are no pins or attachment holes thatremove chevy bowtie emblem would be exposed by removing this big bowtie badge; that is the good news! The bad news is that many guys underestimate the various steps involved with removal and attempt the task themselves only to realize they have bitten off more than they can chew! Professionally, I remove the hard plastic, Chevy Bowtie badge in (2) steps so as to prevent damage to the paint by removing the thick emblem in a single step that would prove to be much more problematic.

Chevy Truck Bowtie removal step 2

remove chevy bowtie emblemOnce the first hard plastic layer has been removed, it is now possible to more easily remove the silver Bowtie emblem from this Chevy truck by using dental floss to separate a leading edge from the painted surface of the truck tailgate. Once an edge has been separated from the double sided tape used for attachment, it is possible to peel off emblem with your hands to expose the big patch of double sided tape.

Chevy Truck Bowtie removal step 3

remove chevy bowtie emblemExperience has shown that most people over-simplify the process of removing truck emblems and badges by thinking that by simply removing the hard plastic truck emblems is the hardest or most difficult part of the process, when in fact, removal of the underlying double sided tape reveals itself as the most difficult. Especially more problematic than thinner truck lettering or emblems is the fact that the Chevy Bowtie has such a large area of double sided tape to contend with. Not only is this double sided tape difficult to remove, but the longer it remains on your car or truck, the more effort will be needed to remove. We must remember that these truck badges and emblems are attached to withstand the day to day elements of life, for life!

Removing Silverado Truck lettering

remove chevy bowtie emblemGenerally if someone wants to remove the Chevy Bowtie badge, they are in favor of removing other add-on truck emblems and lettering like the Silverado and LT badges that were on this particular truck. These individual letters are much easier to remove, just as the double sided tape is easier to work with in these smaller and thinner formations. The picture above shows the next part of the process which is residual adhesive that is left behind once the double sided tape has been removed. As you can see, removing these truck emblems and Chevy Bowtie is a multi-step process that is generally under-simplified by the casual observer and Do-it-yourselfer.

Removing Chevy LT truck Lettering

remove chevy bowtie emblemHere we have the outline of the LT lettering that remains in the form of adhesive left behind once the hard plastic letters and underlying double-sided tape has been removed. Once we have all Chevy truck Bowtie and badges removed along with any double-sided tape, we can then move on to the next stage of removing residual adhesive. It is during this stage that abrading of the truck paint occurs due to the aggressive rubbing necessary to completely remove residual adhesive. While no miracle chemical exists that simply melts this adhesive away, there are professional grade adhesive removers that are only available to the trade that make the process less damaging to the paint. Regardless of the product or technique, certain abrading will result which must be polished out for true level of professional results. This is also the last step of the Chevy Bowtie removal process that is short-cutted by many enthusiasts who do it themselves, or inexperienced detailers who lack the skill set to polish surface scratches from truck paint.

What People are Saying

You did an amazing job with our RV. I honestly cannot believe how great it looks. Seriously; it just looks so good!
Thank you!

Eddie L.
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Darren took my 9 year old Acura MDX and made it spectacular! I believe his knowledge and attention to "detail" goes above and beyond!
Thank you!

Craig Leitch
Foothill Ranch, CA

I'm somewhat of a car nut. Always have been and I don't mind it a bit. I also thought I had the very best detailer out there but boy did I blow that one. My son insisted I try Darren at Auto Fetish and I succumbed to the pressure and did. I did not realize what perfection looked like until Darren announced my car was completed. The depth of the shine, the attention to detail and the thoroughness of the work were well beyond any past experience. No question Darren really takes his work seriously and the customer reaps an enormous benefit. If you take pride in your wheels, Darren's the man!!
Larry T.
Huntington Beach, CA

Darren - Thank you for an honest quote over the phone, early arrival, and most importantly an outstanding detail job which restored my car back to excellent condition. The paint touch up looks great and my leather seats are super clean and sport a "new" conditioned look. Keep up the good work!
Bill C.
Fullerton, CA

Darren - I just got a call from my mom and she is really, really happy with her car! This is the reason I referred you as you are professional in all you do, so thank you. That car means more to her than her children; you have a customer for life!
Thank you again!

Placentia, CA

Darren - the scratch you fixed on my Mustang Cobra looks really, really good! Unless you are a professional car buyer you would not even notice it. It looks so much better than before; thank you!
Dennis A.
Anaheim Hills, CA

I spent considerable time looking for the right person to detail my 2007 Porsche Cayman-S (Black). I was impressed with the recommendations and accolades Darren received on his website including the samples of cars he had detailed. I was even more delighted after he finished detailing my car. It looked amazing; inside, outside, the wheels, everything. I will be using Darren for my detailing needs and will recommend him to the folks in my Porsche club.

I have been using Darren’s professional detail services, Auto Fetish Detail, for close to 15 years now and continue to do so. Darren has taught me and my staff just what real detailing is. Darren is incredibly meticulous and attentive to details. Whenever I have a customer who demands the best, I tell them to call Darren at Auto Fetish. I can always tell when Darren has detailed a car because the level of quality is like no other! He is not the cheapest guy in town, but you can’t beat the quality!

I have known and used Darren's services for 20+ years. I own Xlnt Tint of Anaheim inc. and see many cars every day. When we have a particular customer that needs top notch service, there is nobody else I would trust but Darren! He is very meticulous, and knowledgeable. If you are in need of someone who will take their time but most importantly bring over 20 years of hands on knowledge, this is the company for you.

"I took a leap of faith by picking someone on the Internet to detail my bosses boat! I wasn't disappointed! Darren was professional, punctual, and very easy to deal with, and best of all, he did a FANTASTIC JOB! I couldn't have been happier. We will definitely be a repeat customer!!"

"We have seen the work of other detailers in removing various forms of vinyl car decals and vehicle wraps. Often we have to spend additional hours due to the incomplete removal of old graphics, before we can apply new graphics. Save yourself time and aggravation by calling Darren first and have it done right the first time around; this is the way it should be done!"

"I just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure meeting you on Saturday. You are a true professional and I find it very comforting to know that there are still people out there that take pride in what they do. "
M. Poris
Playa Del Rey, CA

My initial conversation with Darren at Auto Fetish Detail consisted of what his services would provide. Darren did exactly what he described to me and more. Darren detailed parts of the car that never crossed my mind to clean. Darren was promptly at the time, place and date we had agreed upon. Darren’s professional service and meticulous efforts made my car look better than the day I took delivery from the dealer. It was a great experience to deal with Darren and his professional service and work ethics.

"Darren- just wanted to let you know how great my Escalade looks each time you service it. Of course I love the convenience of your services, but what I really love is the quality of work! My husband and I have used other detail services in the past, but none of them spent the time you do on our cars. My husband has a critical eye and has remarked on numerous occasions regarding the quality of your work. With two teenagers and a regular carpool schedule, it is amazing how great the Escalade keeps on looking thanks to you!"
M. Goerlitz

"Darren-you treat my cars as though they were yours; thank you!"

"Detail day is my favorite day of the month-I just love the way you make my cars look Darren!"
Theresa D.
Newport Coast, CA

I have generally used other mobile detail services in the past and continue to do so for what I call a normal detail job. But I met Darren through Exclusive Motors as we share the same building. My wife uses the Suburban to run our 3 kids around and it gets very dirty in the process. The carpeting and seating was extremely bad and I thought I was going to have to replace both the carpeting and seating. I told Darren the other detailers in the past were not able to get the carpet and leather very clean. I was floored when I saw the results Darren was able to get! I tell people all the time that I have never paid so much for a detail, but that I have never had such an amazing job either! I send Darren to all my customers who simply demand the best, as Darren is the best!

will you teach them what clean really is."

Maurice O.

My Mustang has never looked better; you did a fabulous job!
My daughter noticed how much time you spent detailing the Mustang today (something she normally would never be aware of) and asked how much it costs, I told her it is expensive and said I use Darren because he is the best detailer I have ever used.
Darren you do exactly what you say you are going to do, and do so every time!
I use you Darren because you conduct business exactly as I do!
Thanks again! "

"Thank you Darren....
you saved me a "bucket" of money by removing and not replacing
those deteriorated side moldings on my 2005 Chevy truck
and my truck looks new again!"

I used Darren to take off a vehicle wrap on a Ford Econoline van of ours. Darren showed up on time and did a great job removing not only the decals but all the residue that was left from the glue. If you need a vehicle wrap taken off, give Darren a call.
