Just walk through any parking lot till you find one you like and then with a firm grip, yank as hard as you can, then run like hell!

well idk if you're familiar with liquidomes or not, but its like a thick ass vinyle inlay and you're supposed to take out the gold n put this thing into the chrome bowtie. i thought i had to remove the bowtie off the car and upon removing it i marked it up from prying it.

best color there is. there'll be pics. i think its past the point of repair, i didnt care about it since i didnt need it. i used a screwdriver to pry it off. theres a bunch of marks from the screwdriver bending the plastc where i pryed

I'm gonna guess black since that's what the car is....you should really replace your avatar.....maybe bring the new one to the same parking garage and go for a similar shot?

it's only gay if you make eye contact, that's what I hear anyways, I wouldn't know.
