Give me your opinion!

I have been tossing this idea around and I wanted everyone's opinion on the subject. Yes, the picture below looks awful but it gets the point across. So I was thinking about doing a red, white and blue to be like the 98-02 emblem and the 45th emblem since I'm planing on getting a 45th AE. Or should I get them done in ABM like the classic blue chevy bowties. Either way I do them i will keep the chrome trim. Also give me your opinion on what colors for the red, white and blue. I was thinking VR, SW and a non metallic IBM. I appreciate everyone's opinions and I will take them into consideration.

I would prefer blue as the bowties of old were blue. Not gold.

I vote blue. The red white and blue looks a little odd. Like each part of the bowtie is its own color. Kind of takes away from the bowtie

The red white and blue bowtie looks like the Texas flag. So OK if you live in Texas. Otherwise, blue.

Blue is classic. Red, white and blue is original (and applicable anywhere within the US - no offense, OPP). Either way I don't think you can go wrong.

i think it would look good either way. but if youre getting the 45th, which will have the red-white-and-blue logos on it, id probly go with those colors for the bowtie. if it doesnt turn out good and you absolutely hate it, you can always repaint it blue so its like the retro logos. but i think itll look great!!

Try them both with colored electrical tape and see which one you like best.
