I feel like that would look even worse.

Remove them, have them powdercoated in a different color, then stick back on.

 

I would do a glossy black, but maybe red would look dope to go with the GMC emblems? Or a combo of black with only the “5.3 L V8” in red

I also hate that badge. Someone will eventually make some that say Z71, AT4 or 4x4. I don't like people knowing what is under the hood. You get more surprising looks when you dust a older Challenger to the next stop light. I would put a V6 badge on mine if I liked badges enough, but less advertising the better.

I wonder if you could remove the badge and then epoxy it with body filler fiberglass or something and just round it over with no grooves engine sizes or anything and then painted body color after you prep it, you would still have the badge but it would just be a blank piece. After re-reading this it sounds ghetto but a body shop guy could probably do a good job to make it your own badge since it needs to fit in a Groove in the fender wall. Just an idea, probably a bad one at that, maybe somebody else can expound on this with better detail and knowledge

Go buy a 3D printer for a Christmas gift to yourself and make a wickedly sweet badge customized to you!

I think that emblem might be cool of you could remove the 5.3L part and just use that or fill that space with something else.

Swap the chrome ones with black gloss replacements.....now a $350+  option on the '20s that can DIY for less than half that. As a bonus you can dremel tool out the red RS from the chrome emblem and add it to the new emblem.

Did you get your Chevrolet vinyl and new badges through Chevy or somewhere else?
