Hey guys, I've searched and searched and no luck yet, I'm getting tired of repainting my front bowtie every month, I was wondering if there's any good places that sale front bowties for a cobalt...

I don't want anything gay like transformers, the punisher one is pretty cool, but what would be ideal is a carbon fiber one, anyone know a good site to get this from?

I don't want to pay a ridiculous amount for a front bowtie lol

the wind from driving alot, and bugs slamming into the front is causing the paint to chip, I can repaint it and it looks nice for a little while but after that it's back the same way it was.

I painted mine, not on my cobalt but on my HHR. I believe I used 5-6 coats of paint and then probably bout 5-6 coats of clear coat. I had the HHR for 4 yrs. Never had any problems with the paint. And I know that the HHR has a much bigger front bowtie than our Cobalts. Hope this helps.

I do plan on painting the one on my Cobalt. Just need to find the time.

Try through here maybe. You may see something you like. There's 4 pages, and the bowties are all spread out. This is the site that carries the Punisher one. :)

As for CF though, the site XFE listed is the only place I know to get one that doesn't look cheap.

slighty off track, but why don't you wrap it with 3M Di-noc? It acts like a chips resistant protector too.

When I painted my front emblem and clear coated it. I also wrapped it in 3M scotchgard and it still looks as new as day one~~!

I bought this one some time ago, but have never put it on. It's a good idea, but poorly executed. It's made REAL cheap, and does not look like it will hold up very well, and the edges are not clean.
