Painted/cleared my Chevy bowties and used Adam's products to polish...


Recommended Posts

I initially cut vinyl to fill in the gold bowties which, imo, look bad on most colors. I always wanted to paint/clear the bowties to match the factory colors.


I know, dirty car. I'm machine polishing the whole thing and the dust gets everywhere.




So I removed those, taped it up, and laid down some paint:




Cleared it:




You can see how it needed to be wet sanded with 2000 grit:

My old hand polishing kit to the rescue!




I went ahead and removed the tape up front first. Excuse the polish residue in the cracks. I'll fish it out with a toothpick once it dries. Not bad for this being the first time I've ever used paint and clear coat, imo.

Great Job!!! I also agree, the gold is just NASTY! So I did like you and sanded, smoothed and painted mine to match.. but it was a bit plain so I added some vinyl overlays to mine to make them stand out a bit more..




Still beats the gold all day long!

Wow, Kustom FX, that looks awesome.


It's an '08 black granite metallic Malibu LTZ v6. It's not the flashiest car in the world, but it has good options, a plush interior, and is comfortable to drive.
