Bowtie/Bumper Color Change

Postby JTAsdcs [OP] » Sep 26 2012, 8:07am

Hey everyone, I am looking to paint or plasti dip my bow tie [Black] and want to get a better idea of how it will look first! If it's possible, as close to the same black as my monsters, or some sort of matte, but anything will help! I am also thinking about color matching all the chrome on the front of the truck [White]. Comments and Suggestions welcome!! Hopefully this picture works! Thanks in advance!!!

I would do it the color of the truck with the chrome grille. Would look good IMO.

Ya know I kinda like the color you did it at, but if you could try it darker so it will be closer to the plasti dip black that would be great! And maybe white too? [if it is too much it isn't a big deal!]

Thanks!!!

The more I look at it, the more I like the color you already did! :shock: If you can still try it darker it will be greatly appreciated! Will definitely make sure you see the finished product and would like to hear your opinion as well

I will definitely darken it for you, I personally think it kinda looks close to plasti dips color there but I can take it down a shade. I can also do the white, but that pic is kinda tainted with sunlight? And it is not a big deal...
