Patriotic Bow Tie!! What do you think???
 
6 Attachment(s)
OK, I want you guys honest opinion. What do you think of this patriotic bow tie i did this weekend. Just in time for the 4th. It tool me a while to find the right stickers i wanted, a flag with a wave and not just flat. I finial found them at a Chevy dealer here in Houston. I got the last 4 he had, but they are ordering some more. I have to say, the pictures do not do it justice. The front bow tie I removed the bow tie completely took out the gold insert, added a 1/4 inc, foam sheet (My wife's idea, and yes it actually worked) then sealed it. The sticker is very high quality with about a 1/4 inch hard clear rubber surface. Really protects the image, no chance of water getting behind.

The back bow tie I just made a pattern and placed over the gold. They both turned out great i think. Just want others opinion.

Thanks

Looks best on back but looks good. Bet it look good on black to. Actually probably look good on all colors but IOM. Cause hate the red SS emblems of RS on IOM. But that's just my opinion and you know what they say opinions are like azzholes everybodys got one! But definatly makes your car unique! That's alot better than seeing someone drive a Toyota or Honda and putting big American flag sticker on it. Best ever saw number sticker on Honda accord that said buy American. I thought they should try and do what they preach. But here in Tennessee not everyone is all that bright! Including me!

As long as you are going to update it each holiday, you will be all set. Get your Halloween, Thankgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentines Day, St Patricks Day, etc. all ready to go.

Now just move to Colorado and get some Colorado Support your troops license plates to match. They only cost $792 :mad0260:

Little to much for me, but it looks good. If you're in the military then I think its perfect. Nice unique mod!

Like some have said, looks good on red for sure and would look good on blue or white. I don't think it would look good on any other colors. It would jump out too much. I love the idea!!!!:chevy:

Leahs SS 07-08-2009 09:08 AM

I like it a lot! :w00t:

2010SLVRBULIT 07-08-2009 09:10 AM

Jericho 07-08-2009 10:59 AM

bballr4567 07-08-2009 11:03 AM

Deeboe 07-08-2009 11:06 AM

Tell me more about how the bowtie comes apart to put something behind the clear part.
Got pics of the process?

SS 376 07-08-2009 03:10 PM

I would buy that for sure.

ljustin293 07-08-2009 03:17 PM

looks great on the red :thumbsup:

Nova65 07-08-2009 03:23 PM

shouldn't it be a maple leaf flag since it was made in Canada?

you dont need to be in the military to be proud and patriotic. :mad0260:

I think its a cool, unique, subtle idea as opposed to the whole back windshield
