You can't buy them anymore, but Pep Boys sells some that are similar.

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.

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...

The grille looks sharp with the bowtie IMO. Either way post pics on what you end up doing with it. Very Happy
