Needing opinions

I have a white 06 LS sedan and have been thinking about painting my bowties. I figure if I paint them white like the car you won't really see the chrome except close up. So I am asking for help, what color should I paint my rear bowtie to make it stand out and also let the chrome shine. Also if anyone has some extra letters laying around, I have something I want to try without having to de-badge my 'Balt.

I think red or black would be cool, but that's just me.


White '07 LT coupe with lotsa purple stuff.

white to hide it black to promote it. I would do like a gunmetal grey cause i know it all over the interior.

so then why paint them...? just a question... the reason i asked is if you are going to go with any other seat covers or speakers... you may want it to mach or keep the same theme going imo

Firebalt 07,
Just because its a commuter car does not mean I don't want to do some things with it,. Also, my rear bowtie must have been make on a Friday as the "gold" of the bowtie is bubbled under the clear coat and just looks crappy up close.

Paint the gold the same white as the car. Leave the silver "outline" stock.
