    I have a 75 k-10, and have really been wanting a red bowtie up front. My girlfriend got me some new side emblems with the red bowtie and the 10 on them, and they look great. Can anyone tell me where to find this emblem, or do people just repaint the gold. Thanks for your help. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I can't tell you where to buy one, but I painted mine Chevy orange. I cleaned the area off real well and wiped it down with paint thinner, taped the area around the grill off and shot the paint to it. I really like the looks of it.

    On my 85 I scuffed it w/some 100 grit and shot it Flat Black. Then I took 1/8" red Pinstripe in the channel around where the chrome was. Has held up for 2yrs so far.
