Blackout installed....just annoyed with two things...

So I got it installed...I think it looks nice. HOWEVER, I wish the bowtie was flush like it was...they used 3M to put it back like it was...but, its not flat on the rear like it was...and also the bottom where they pulled off the bowtie is slightly sharp. I apologize for the photos being dark...

Am I overreacting? Any input? Can I take it to somewhere and have it flush again? What do I do?

Is that your original bowtie painted?...Or is it an aftermarket bowtie painted SGM?

I purchased three different sets of aftermarket bowties only to be disappointed with the fit and styling every time. That's why I went back to the GM bowties.

They are the original bowties... but, when they pulled it off - around some of the outer edges it is rough and sharp. Also, the 3M tape they used makes it stick out a little...and doesn't look "factory flush." The guys that I usually deal with are "laughing" at me and said I should have waited...

Is it possible to take the bowtie off and have the edges buffed to smooth it out again and apply it flush without damaging the vinyl?

go to your local GM dealer and order a new back bowtie and replace the one thats on there now.. the new one will fit perfect!!!!! they're not that expensive ~25.00-30.00 when I bought my new one.

2010 Camaro's are GM's best idea yet!!!!
