'07 TB LT Front Bowtie HELP!

I was wondering if anyone has a 07 LT who has changed the front bowtie? I ordered a polished billet one from Empire and recieved it today went out and took the grill off and there is no way that i can see to remove the stock ugly gold bowtie. There are no bolts that i can see and if there are they are very hard to get at. I tried to use fishing line just to remove the gold like i did on the rear but i can only get through a little bit and then it seems to get stuck on something and i dont want to f-it up too much without ordering a liquid dome emblem before i break off the gold..... does anyone have suggestions?

that guide was helpful to remove the grill itself but that guide shows a LS grill and the 07 LT is different and there are no exposed bolts for the bowtie.....

You already pulled the grill off

I just checked the service info & it shows that the LT grill emblem is glued on like the rear...Heat it up for about 30 seconds, then use the fishing line behind the entire emblem

Well, Ive got the 06 LT and from what I can see it looks like the emblem is either clipped in the grill or molded to it. I havent had the grill off, just from what I can see when the hood is up. I've been scratching my head as to why no one has made anything to replace it yet either.

PROSPHOTO - Have you actually tried that? Or know anyone that has? Any pics? I was thinking about doing that to mine but stopped about a half inch in figuring I would get some more info but then forgot about it.

I haven't tried it; But I got the info from GM's service info and it it shows specific service info for the LT (differentiating it from the LS & SS)

I recently ordered rear & wheel overlays from grafxwerks.com; I emailed them about doing something for our front bowties (LT's), but haven't heard back from them yet

I'll keep you posted

I'm in the same boat. I've been wanting to replace mine with billet but nobody makes one yet. A couple guys here have painted theirs. I've thought about painting mine black since I've blacked out all the other bowties on the truck.

06-present TB LT Front Emblem

I have I have!
It's not too hard to do. I have some pics below on how I did it. So the difference is this is definitly a do-it-yourself project because it doesnt just screw off.

Things you need:

Sharp longer knife
Car spray paint
Car Clear Coat spary paint
sandpaper
bathroom sealant
newspaper


The front emblem is two pieces on the 06 and 07 TB LTs.

One part is built into the grill (silver piece) and the other is glued to the front of it (gold piece).

Pry off the gold piece by putting a sharp knife slowly behind it and cut the apoxy that is holding it to the car. Try not to bend the emblem for it will break and you will need it later.Take your time with this


Once you have the emblem off, sand the front down.


plop it on some newspaper and spray away with whatever color you desire, spray close and it will be shinier let dry ect ect wet sand if you want. Add a few more coats and a few of clear.




Take the bathroom sealant and plop some on the back of the emblem and push the emblem back onto the sliver embeded in the grill. Wipe off all the extra sealant and let dry and you are good to go!



Hope this helps
