So I am in the middle of Hyperdipping my 4 ZR2 badges and the Black bowtie in the rear. I removed the Chrome Silverado and the Chrome 6.2L on the hood completely.

I was wondering if anyone has taken off the "Flowtie" on the front or know how it is removed? I would like to get rid of he chrome around that as well but keep the red insert would be much easier I think without it on the truck.

Here are the pics of the first drivers fender badge start to finish.

The flowtie can be removed with some careful prying. The red and chrome come off together but can then be separated. Here are a couple posts that I found helpful when I went to remove mine:

Thanks so much for the tip just took the Flowtie off 10 minutes ago going to Hyperdip today along with the back bowtie.

In pic #4, did you just pull the dip at the edge and came off around the lettering or did you have to gently score it in places?
 
No scoring at all on badges that big the divides or changes in elevation if you will are drastic enough that the HYperdip just splits around it on it's own. Here are the photos from the grill, tailgate and other fender.

The only issue I had was with the small badge on the grill. First of all it was put on crooked by the factory so the top of the 2 is basically touching the top of the grill cut out. But mainly the size of the badge is just to small so I am thinking maybe less coats would be the answer. I had to score around the inside of the 2 with a razor blade to get it to peel correctly and I tried before scoring and lifted a corner so I am sure it won't last and will have to be redone. That is the nice thing about Hyperdip though I guess... I can just peel that badge and do it over. I think next time I would just remove the badge and spray it than put it back on.

That flow tie came out excellent!

I’m going to make an attempt at it. Which color black hyper dip did you go with? Seems like they have a half dozen.
 
Shadow Black is what I used and it is the flat black. Piano black is the glossy black.

That came out great. I really like the chrome delete on these trucks. If I didn't buy one already at the dealer, I would have paid for the black badges. Guess I'll be going this route instead.

I just ordered a replacement badge for the small ZR2 in my grill it was $43 after tax. I will Hyperdip this one off the truck than install it. Also I asked about ordering the Flowtie and it was $45 before tax if anyone is interested breaks theirs removing. I have both part #'s if needed.

What’s the part number for the grille ZR2 emblem?

Looks Great WildTurkey707! I just swapped my emblems myself and I’m about to tackle the chrome on the flow tie and rear bow tie. Was thinking about going the hyperdip route too.

How has the hyperdip held up? When you did the rear bow tie, how did you keep the inside part still rippled?
 
I didn't do anything special to keep the rear bowtie with the stippled or rippled texture the hyperdip wasn't thick enough to change that even with 12 coats so you're fine there. I did switch out of the hyper dip on the flowtie I think red looks better then the black in the grill I felt like the flowtie got a little lost.

The Hyperdip has held up well the only recommendation I have would be if you do the flowtie or I guess for anywhere clean bugs or anything dirty off the Hyperdip as quick as possible. Anything acidic like bug guts will eat through it.

Great advice on the bugs, maybe I’ll limit the hyperdip to the rear bow tie and have the front flow tie wrapped or painted.

So for the rear bow tie, did you just spray the entire bow tie and just have to peel off all the hyperdip from the stippled section? Sorry if this seems obvious but I’ve never used plastidip/hyperdip so want to get it right the first time.

No worries... I sprayed the entire thing the stippled section is Hyperdipped and it keeps its texture. In the pics below I only peeled that rectangle surround the entire Bowtie is hyperdipped.

Ahhh - got it! Thanks so much!

Not looking forward to trying to separate the chrome and red from the flowtie. Sounds like it is inevitable to break some tabs…

I did break a couple tabs but just added some clear gorilla glue and it holds up fine. I also painted the Flowtie red myself first to make sure I liked it then once I knew I did I went to the dealership and bought a new one and had it painted by a shop near me so it will hold up. A new Flowtie from the dealership is only like $35 if I remember correctly.
