My Blacked Out Front and Rear Bowties

Since it was a beautiful day outside today, I decided to black out my front and rear bowtie emblems using gloss black vinyl. After doing both front and rear, I decided to try out putting a red pinstripe around the bowtie as well. Now, I can't decide whether to leave the pinstripe or take it off . Any thoughts/comments/opinions?

Black vinyl only (Both front and rear):





Black vinyl with Red pinstripe (Only rears have been done so far):

I like it with the red. It kinda breaks up all the black.

Keep the red. It works well with the SS emblems.

That what I was thinking as well. It looked sort of empty with just the black bowtie and a red SS emblem...

I say stick with the red as well. Really adds some contrast to the black.

I was going to do the exact same thing on my RJT but it didn't look as good as it does on the black. Took it all off. Thinking about either getting the chrome insert or maybe reverse yours (RJT with black pinstripe).

I think the RJT with black pinstripe would look pretty good.

It would look best if you made the chrome part red.
