Bowtie wrapped

Well had my clear bra guy use the 3M matte black (same as hood) on the bowties turned out awesome - didn't like plastidip as I wanted to keep the frame around it like the SS
Matches great.....

I just plastidip sprayed my bowties yesterday. I messed up a little bit so I will be redoing them while it sits over the winter (or may use the wrap like you did) but I kept the chrome frame. It is just more work masking but I believe its worth it keeping the chrome. I also did my front SS Badge the same. I love it and will be doing the rear SS badge when I have time.

I like the chrome border. I just installed an all black billet bow tie on my trunk side. No border. Will add a photo later.

Looks great. If my 1LE was black or charcoal, I would have gone the same route as you. But, since my car is VR, I went a different route...

Is the 1st pic distorted or is the bow tie upside down?

I think it is on upside down. I flipped the picture upside down and it looks better. The way it is on there now makes it look like it is frowning.

It was indeed upside down. I righted it yesterday. That pic is from the day I got the bowtie back from the painter.

Not bad, but I would have removed the SS badges as well. Looks cleaner.

Painted. I bought a set of black metal bowties from ebay and took them to the Hendrick collision center in Cary, NC. The guys there sprayed them with factory colors so they would match.

Removed gold inserts and replaced with new Heritage Blue emblems from Defenderworx. I think it sets it off and I like old school! Tell me what you guys think...

That blue certainly is different. And different in my book is pretty cool.
