Let's see your non-gold bow ties

Did my back one black, but I'm thinking the front won't look right because of the black background.

Curious to see what's been done with the front bow tie color. No, not Holden emblems....

Pretty straight forward, black on black, red SS badge. Not much excitement until the hammer drops!

That looks great. Where can I order one and how much?
I painted black over the gold of my bowtie, but the paint keeps fading/chipping.
