    Was thinking of plasti dipping the Bowtie to make it a flat black to make it look the same as the body side moulding I plasti dipped earlier

    Looks great definitely an improvement! I think some colored trim around the bowtie, or a white bowtie would look a little better, instead of the all black look -- but that's just me!

    You could also do a vinyl wrap, this way if you don't like it you can peel it off, or do a different color depending on your mood.
    Nice job on the grille!

    I had mine sprayed with Line-X with a polished billet aluminum bowtie, similar to one of the suggestions above.
