the bowties!!! sorry for the huge images.






the rear one gave me a lot of problems and i kinda effed it up a tad. it doesnt look too bad for the first go IMO. i'll get around doing it later if i dont do full de-badge first. so...i know everyone and their dog has done it...but watcha think?

it looks sweet with those blacked out tails. did you nightshade or vinyl them? silver balts always look better with the black tails IMO

yeah, i was debating cuz i have the imperial blue cobalt. so its already a really dark car. i like it though. i didnt wanna debadge the whole car, and this way its not this obnoxious gold on the dark blue. its subtle, but still there lolz. i also painted the muffler black. i was tired of seeing that giant ugly silver box under my car every time i walked past it lolz

yeah i took off the back one to paint it. i just used Krylon Fusions for plastic..looked good too. but when you take it off make sure to use masking tape so you know where to put it back on at. and go buy some 3M Molding Tape...that way it just doesnt come off like mine did
