For those of you who painted your grills, how did you remove the front emblem? Is it self explanatory once I get the grill off? I've heard some people say it's glued but from the little space I can see through it looks like it's riveted.

You are seeing the locating posts. The emblems are taped in place. Remove using fishing line and adhesive release. It's an easy 3 minute job. No need to remove the grill to remove the emblems. Hope that helped

no need to remove, just mask off and spray around it.

between the grill and the emblem is a thin piece of 3m double face tape.. i took mine off to paint the grill matte black...

Thanks guys. I messed up the center emblem a little with a screwdriver but I don't think it will be seen once I put it back on. If so, where's the cheapest place for these replacement parts? I saw some on ebay for $65. Sounds crazy to me.

$65 is very cheap for the front crest and wreath.
