bowtie vinyl

For those who have covered the original bowtie emblems, where have you purchased the vinyl from?

BLACK10 sells them for $10 and has some good instructional videos on how to get a perfect installation.

Go to your local arts and crafts store...around here its a place called Michaels.

Cost me $8 bucks and I got two 10x11 sheets of black self adhesive vinyl. Been on the car for over a month and I wash her about once a week and drive it in the rain. Sits in the drive way in direct sunlight at about 80 to 90 degrees depending on that days weather.

Still looks brand new and I haven't had a single issue out of it. No peeling or bubbling or fading at all.

eBay's got a bunch for ~$10 shipped, pre-cut adhesives. I thought about going the self route but I'm sure I'd f* it up.

I have the Front and Back Bowtie Vinyl decals from BigWorm Graphics in Matte Flat Black color. These decals are precut so they go on very easy. Comes with Squeegie and instructions. They sale for $24.99 on the BigWorm Site, But I will let mine go for $15.00 and will ship it to you for free. Also will throw in a Large BigWorm Graphics decal. Just PM me if interested. Only set I have so hurry. Also I am leaving for the Beach for a week on Sunday morning so if you want them need to PM me before Saturday so I can ship them out before I leave, if not shipping will be after July 11th. thanks

Yup

Just look to your local vinyl, or sign shop...they usually have 1'x'1 pieces in the rubbish bin leftover from previous jobs...just bring the guys some coffee and i bet they'd give you a few pieces...thats what i did

Taylor,
I just redid my cheap Autozone CF vinyl with Di-Noc today and what a difference! This stuff looks better, has texture, and is a hell of a lot easier to stretch over the front bowtie. It's strong enough to stand up to some tugging, whereas the other cheap stuff just tore. For the first time I was actually able to get the front to lie completely flat.

It's pretty expensive, but worth it if you're goin CF!

I clearcoated it with like 2 coats of automotive clear coat and it really shines now. The pic above is after I clearcoated it and used the flash to show off how real it looks.
