Wow that looks so good! Nice job. Do you have any idea how the reflective black would look on a PBM?
How did you go about cutting out the bowtie and installing it? Would you be able to give some more details.
Love your car!
I went to a nearby graphic shop and asked if they had a piece of reflective white film he could sell me. He had a piece of scrap about 8” wide and 1 ½ ‘long. He sold it to me for $5.00. I cut out a piece just a little larger than the entire bowtie. Removed the paper backing started at one end of the bowtie with a hard plastic squeegee pressed the film down onto the bowtie. There is a definite indentation between the plastic and the chrome. With the edge of the squeegee I pushed the film down into the indentation, then used a razor and carefully cut between the plastic and the chrome. There is enough room for the razor blade to go between the plastic and the chrome. Go slow and make sure it is warm so the film is soft and pliable. With the weather you have been having I guess for you in Central Illinois that will be sometime this July unless you have a nice heated garage.
The films come in all colors you should have no problems matching the color of the car. The black film lights up just like the white if you wanted to go that way. If not just get plane black film. It is real easy to do if you have ever put decals or pinstripes on a car. I took me about 10 minutes to do one bowtie. If you do not have a squeegee, ask them at the graphics shop for one. They use them for applying the film. On a difficulty scale from 1 to 10 this is a 2 if you get the film pushed down into the space between the plastic and chrome.
