Well since I had scratches from when I first debadged, I figured well it may look better without but the scratches make it look bad so I decided to rebadge only with a change. BTW let me just say I HATE PAINTING!! This bowtie was PERFECT! Then when I was putting the clear on, a piece of grass flew onto it, and I tried to get it off and it smudged and scratched it all I was SO pissed so I had to sand ALL of it off and REDO IT! :mad: BUT no it doesn't end there. So same thing, putting the clear on again, and now what happens? A BUG FLYS BY AS IM CLEAR COATING AND IT GETS SEALED INTO THE CLEAR!!!!!!!!! ****IN PISSED!!!! But no I wasn't gonna go thru sanding and shit ALL over again so I just said **** it. :mad::mad::mad::mad: So I ****ing hate painting now!!!!!!! It was SOOOOOOOO PERFECT THE FIRST TIME!!!!!!! :sad:

To be honest, I hate debadged cars cause then I can't tell what the car is and I just don't like the look. Would make me feel naked lol. My front bowtie is black it's been for a while. Do you mean black inserts for the SS?

Here's a photoshop with black SS inlays... I think I like it... kinda completes it IMO

just throwing it out there but I'm pro badges too, you need something but not too much...I think that you should get rid of the 2.4 and the cobalt and do the SS black, so there is still the bowtie and the SS in black...cause right now there is way too much going on IMO

why don't you move the SS to where the 2.4 was? I think that'll look the best, cuz I too am a fan of badged cars.

Let me guess, you used a flathead?

I dont have the ones for the door handles, I forgot about those actually! lol


Can you get the EXACT paint color as your car?
