Dont paint them. Just do like everyone else is suggesting. by whatever tape color you want, place it over the bowtie and cut it out using a razor blade. It is super simple and cheap.
I bought some red tape and carbon fiber tape. Tried both and decided to stay with carbon fiber.

Paint it with Krylon Fusion semi flat. It will turn out great and last a long time. Ive done all my Chevy's the same way.

Question

Okay, please be gentle, I'm a lady and I've never done this before. I bought the ryder graphixs bowtie blackouts and the back one went on great, the front one was a nightmare and I ended up pulling it off and throwing it away.

I've got some new vinyl and plan to cut it larger than the bowtie and try again. My question is did you guys find you needed to heat it up at all or get it wet (as others have mentioned) to get it to form to the bowtie?

Thats sick. Did you just buy carbon fiber or did you have to mix and match?

Are you people cutting the vinyl/carbon-fibre before you put it on or after?

I'm concerned it will not line up perfectly if I cut it first, then try to line it up and stick it on :-(

I'd rather mask it out and spray paint it :-O
