With my aversion to gold watches, gold chains - it transferred to the cars too. Now completed covering all the gold bowties....

I did this the first week I got the car



Just finished these two with a purchase from eBay. A bit dirty. Didn't get a chance to wash it...

So how is this mod done? Is there a special type of material? Where do you get it? How long does it take? If anyone can provide a how-to that would be awesome.

Thanks.

I second this request....AMGE63 - How about a How-To Write Up? Any tips or tricks? Anything you would do differently if you did it again?

Thanks.

No particular tips or tricks. If you know how to put on a band-aid, you can do this. I had to trim the Trailblazer stickers manually, each one. So they are not exactly perfect. So when this eBay seller finally gets it right, I might re-do them again. Although they look pretty good if don't get down close to look at it. When you guys get this vinyl stuff from that seller, it will be pretty easy to do and you can have it matching colors like I did.

What was the cost for the other ones you bought?
The total was less than $10.00 total off eBay. Which is a lot if you consider they're just die-cut vinyl sticker. But small price to pay for me to not see the gold...
