how sad and pathetic is this? I drove thru the carwash this morning to get all the salt brine off the car and when I got to my next destination, I found that the rear bowtie was showing that the wash must have pealed off the top "Yellow/Gold" layer, leaving tacky feeling silver goo. Lools like I will be getting the heat gun out of storage and will work on removing the rest of the plastic bowtie, leaving the tailgate unbadged and clean looking. I have also noticed the rear bow ties on other Chevy vehicles, mainly the trucks, where the bow tie is pealing or faded. I guess GM has cheaped out on the emblems now. my car doesn't even have 5000 miles on it yet.
