Our bowties

So I removed my bowties so I can paint them. I also removed the chrome plate and it removed some of the paint from the bowtie. My question is how can I remove all of the paint. Using stuff I have at home would be great anything that won't mess it up would be awesome.

Are you just trying to remove the paint or scruff up it to paint it?

You could use the wire side of a sponge lol

A red scotch bright pad would work if ur gonna use sand paper, nothing more then 320 grit dry or u could use 400 grit wet. Either way your gonna be better off priming ur badges to help hide sand scratches. Just saying from experience.

I would just sand, prime, and paint the outside of the bowtie. It will look good if you are ok at painting. That's what most do
