    Default Painted Bowtie pic

    I just got my bow ties painted the same color as the truck. They also water sanded it and buffed it to give it a good shine and take the weather scratches out of it. OHHH and I had tips ran out on the cherry bomb pro muffler and man it sounds nasty. Here are some pics let me know what you think.

    If I remember right Heavy Chevy's truck is black cherry in color, but yes it does look black from the photos. Great job on the truck so far, it keeps getting better and better!

    You are correct. The bow ties are black cherry also. That paint is 80 bucks a pint. It isnt easy to spray either. I also took all of the silverado emblems off of it i think it gave it a cleaner look.

    Looks real good. I bought an overlay off ebay but I think I am going to re-do mine in paint instead.
