Blacked out Bowtie- Who sells them?

Ive seen the Blacked out bowtie on a few cars, mine will be black with CGM hood/hockeys I think it would look good... or maybe a CGM bowtie?

Who sells them?

Powdercoating is the best way to go. I saw a company that sold black ones, but it didnt have the chrome outline and they looked really crappy IMO.

You can get vinyl. I don't know where they are getting them though. My thought, with vinyl you can always take it off. Better resale value.

I'm getting mine painted black. I just had my stripes painted and the shop had to take the back bowtie off to reclear the trunk and since it was no good anymore, I told them to paint it black so I could see what it looked like. It looked great, so I'm having them buy a new rear and front bowtie to paint black. I figure, paint is better than vinyl, and if I don't like it, the bowties only cost like $20-$30 to get from chevy if I need to put gold ones back on.

The Defenderworx ones seem to fit inside the chrome outline, replacing only the factory goldish part. This is a pic of the chome one installed, but you see what I mean.

Defenderex Doesn't Have what they advertise yet

All they have is the fuel door and door sills. Pretty lame to lead you to believe they are available when they aren't.

You can put either a vinyl decal or spray bomb it yourself easily.

I think there's a black out option you can get from the dealership. I'd say give them a call.

What's up, Rogue? How's the '69 RR? It might be a little soon for any aftermarkets. Believe what I saw on here was DIY. Bound to be many available before too long though.

I don't believe there's a blackout option available, 91CamaroRS.

Still in the same shape it was last week LOL. I've been preping my previous car (93 VW Fox) for the 24 hours of Lemons, so I havent had a chance to do squat on the RR so far this year.

Has anybody painted them midnight silver to match the RS rims? That might look good, especially on a dark car.

Did you have the stripes painted on by your own shop or the dealer contracted shop. I'd like to have mine painted on as well.
What did you use for a pattern? What brand of paint did the shop use?
Thanks

I did the same. Got the vinyl on Ebay for $5 and I've got some to spare. I know it won't last as long as paint or powder coat, but I figure I can peel the old stuff off and put new vinyl on if it ever looks bad, since I have plenty left over. Everyone comments on how nice the flat black looks in contrast with the chrome around it and the CGM paint.
