Carbon Fiber Bowtie input

I just got these bowties back, and I'm just wanting some input. Give me your honest opinion on if you like them or not... I was kind of expecting them to look like my SS emblems, but the ss emblems were kinda of done crapy (by me). These are on my CGM SS.

I like them, so long as you have other carbon fiber parts on the car. Not digging the SS tho. Maybe if you had every other weave darker...

Yeah that's what I did to the SS emblems, I tried to do it to the bowties too but I just can't seem to get them to cut correctly and the adhesive seems to wear our kind of quick. I like that look better myself. I thought that's how these were going to turn out when I had them done, oh well.

Was anyone able to do the 3M CF on the front bowtie without cutting it in the center and making two pieces?

I'm not a fan of CF. Has no use at all on the road and I don't play checkers anymore.

looks good to me, although the 3M looks really good. I have a carbon fiber hood as well and awaiting the trunk to come in.

Well with the CGM some carbon fiber components look good. Plus it's 10000x better than those ugly gold bowties!

Carbonfiber Bowties

Those look good. I just had mine painted and put them on last night. They were masked off, blasted, remasked and airbrushed then cleared. Let me know what ya'll think. I think they look pretty good. I was trying to do something to pull in the color of my silver stripes.

I don't like them.. I think carbon fiber just looks kind of tacky.
