I would just order some flat black vinyl and do your own cuts. You can buy a sheet of vinyl for around $6. It would give you enough to do around 6 sets of bow ties. I bought mine off ebay. I think I ordered from this person http://stores.ebay.com/metrodecals-Restyling

Amen. I went to a local sign shop and bought a 2'x2' sheet for 5 bucks. I had the precut ones and screwed them up. Doing the sheets was sooooo much easier.

BINGO...........I bought the pre cut ones off EBAY too. Front one did not work out at all. The rear one was fine. I then researched more on the forum and found out the same thing just get a large piece of vinyl and overlay the whole area and cut the excess off. So I went to a friend of mine who owns a sign shop and got a large scrap piece and did the front one this evening.

I think it was pretty easy just to buy vinyl and make the cuts yourself.

just buy a piece of flat black vinyl from a sticker shop and do it yourself
when i did it on mine car i began putting a rectangle of vinyl that would cover the whole bowtie (starting from the center for the back bowtie and from the left or right on the front), for the front just stretch it over until you get it on. It might take a couple tries for the front but the back goes right on

Not everyone is comfortable buying a sheet of vinyl and taking a razor blade to their car. Some people do not have the time to go out running around looking for it either, so there are other options for them.

The vinyl is sticky on the back side. Think of it like a bumper sticker. Peel, apply trim.
