Bowties and 3rd brake lights - show them off

Recommended Posts

As stated in another thread, I'm having my black 03 SSS repainted. I'm also thinking about adding a few subtle custom touches.

 

FYI, I've dug through tons of threads before posting.

 

Grille bowtie:

I think I would like the front grille bowtie color to match the silver SS emblem / brake ducts. If anyone has done it, please post a pic. I know the shopman bowties are popular, but not exactly what I'm looking for.

Of course, all others are welcome to show off, but I'm mainly interested in silver bowtie on black truck (possibly could be persuaded to a black bowtie with silver trim).

 

Another member painted theirs and it looks really good, I'm hoping for an after market piece.

3rd brake light:

I'm also interested in a LED 3rd brake light to compliment my LED taillights. I was forced to swap out my taillights (twice) because someone else liked them so much they took them. Again, show them off!

 

Thoughts?

The tails look like smoked factory lights, is the 3rd smoked factory as well?

 

I came really close to smoking my factory taillights before they were stolen.

 

Yours look sharp.

The carbon fiber bowtie is pretty sick. Weren't these a group buy of 5? Did anyone put them on a black SS?

 

Did you paint your grille inserts?

Nice taillights! I've looked at those 3rd break lights a few times. I'm curious about the amount of light they produce. The manufacturers pictures make the cargo lights seem weak, what's your opinion?

So my brake lights look great during the day. At night they are ok. But the reverse lights are worthless.

My bow tie is a shopman powder coated black.

I would recommend a brushed aluminum bowtie. It matches the SS badges pretty well, and adds a little something extra. When I had my SS i was going for an all blacked out look but I always wanted to keep the silver grille.

Thanks and yes they were. A few did out them on black SSS. My grille inserts are stock non painted.

They are are not factory smoked. There is a guy on Ebay who does this professionally. You buy the lights the way you want them them,how dark etc, Once he receives your old ones he does the same thing and sells those.

He means factory as in oem lights that have been smoked, not smoked from factory.
