I purchased the SLP grille a few years back and the bowtie is fading. Can anybody help me out on where to get a new one? I emailed BBE but havnt gotten a response yet. And yes i can paint it but id rather just be able to replace it
Ive been there but unfortunetely they only sell the inserts, not the actual emblem that is show here http://shop.naioa.com/index.ph.....oductId=15 Ive also ordered bowtie outline but they are too big and atleast the one i got was more of just a sticker... Im thinking about sanding it down and painting it. Im inexperienced at painting auto parts though, any suggestions on coats, primer, overcoats, ect?
I picked up a nice Black/Red bow tie at the Pick-N-Pull a few yeas ago. I put new 3M tape on it ant put it on my SLP grill. It is still there and looks great.
I think that it came off of a 90's Limina/MC.
I found those on pepboys, they do look extremely similar! Have you ever purchased them/ know the dimensions of it? And Ill def. PM pitchblack
My luck, no pep boys even in Iowa and they dont ship to anywhere but the store
The PepBoys item is a "domed emblem"...sold as a pair...probably no sanding or painting to be had.
I have/can get you some...a decent alternative...outonthetiles can vouch/comment further if need be,or if you can't get what you need/want from "pitchblack"... . Mine has held up quite well so far.They are "slightly" wider than the "parallelogram" it/mine sits on.
Either way,no problem...as long as we get you what you something better than "faded"...I'll send 'em your way at no cost...they are less than $10 a pair...

Thanks a bunch! First I'm going to try to paint the original one that came with the grille. Sanded it, going to prime, paint, and clear coat it and see how it comes out if it doesn't turn out how i hope ill definitely be PM'ing you!
