What Color Bowtie?

Edit: Did this yesterday, see results at the bottom of this post.

I was thinking krylon yellow (almost color match), but am open to ideas.

I will match the front and back.

Thanks for the input.

example of yellow:




what do you guys think?

IMO if you paint them yellow it will just blend in. maybe you should paint it black...stereotypical I know but I think it would look better

I could do the center yellow and the chrome in black? But I get what you're saying about the blending in.

The two tone idea sounds extremely good. Try it out. If doesn't look great. Go with black.

If you want to go two tone instead of doing the center black and the chrome yellow you could do the center yellow and the chrome black it would break up the colors nice and if that doesnt look good just go black center with the chrome it looks good on any balt
