Need help finding or making a grill bowtie emblem

I have a 1967 truck, but my buddy has a 1984 truck with a stock grill. He wants a blue bowtie emblem for his like the one that is on mine. One like mine is pictured below. (first time trying to post a picture, so let me know if it doesn't show). Does anyone know if someone makes one, or they know where I could find some of the blue, reflector material to make one.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Need help finding or making a grill bowtie emblem

Mine is the same bowtie but with a gold reflective insert that's missing. I polished it up with steel wool and will paint it with the closest rattle-can match I can find.

A new one is $55 and that would be worth it if I had a great paint job. But for now it's a 20 footer and a painted bowtie will work fine.

If you can find semi-transparent paint, it will show the polished surface underneath.

Saw this one recently.

Was wondering myself about the different color options for a grill emblem. Tend to like the blue too.
