    Default A little engine detailing

    A can of krylon for plastic . I picked silver textured to match my Silve Silerado. A roll of masking tape and a bottle of rubbing alcohol for cleaning and preping the surface . Make sure to rub the edges of the tape down good for a sharpe edge. If you goof up this paint comes off with gasoline. The bow tie was just cut out of plexiglass and painted then held down with double sided 3m tape. Cost $6.00

    Very nice! I keep mine in armor all, until hunting season (4 weeks w00t!) at which time it collects about 22 pounds of mud. Usually takes me until spring to get it all back out.

    Nice bowtie!

    2012 2 months old , I have to wash it everyday due to the EPA and construction sites always being watered to keep dust down . They don't take into account of how many cars have to washed because of them.
