Laser-cut emblems: anybody interested?

After seeing how our badges like to peel and fade away I thought about getting some new badges laser-cut out of some stainless. Right now, pending interest, I am thinking of drawing samples on Solidworks and getting a quote from a local shop and going from there. After getting some prototypes I would like to get some sort of group buy going. Any thoughts?

Id like a custom set made for the trunk to replace the "chrysler" on my M. when you get a quote, let us know. When you design them in SW, are you trying to stay with the same font and thickness? or are you going to change it up a bit?

I am open to suggestions. I can use just about any font and logo. I was thinking 10 gauge but will probably depend on what they have on hand. I can get them cut to whatever thickness desired (up to an inch!). I have a DODGE font I will try for the D O D G E, I N T R E P I D, E S, E S, R/T and such. I don't know for sure what font Chrysler used but can probably find it if you wanted to stay original.

I am interested. Would like to see some ram's head emblems for the hood of my first gen as well as a 3.3 emblem for the side of the car like the old school mustangs had for the 5.0L.

I could probably do the '3.3' but I am leery of doing anything copyrighted.


Will probably be a few days before I have time to get anything together.

I know a few guys have gotten custom emblems made here AutoBadges.com : Our Products : Emblems

Not the cheapest but you are talking about one-offs

I'm curious. I don't care about using them for the outside of the car, but if they turn out nice you may have another customer for some things.

I bought some from this site before for another vehicle. Nice quality for the money.

YourEmblem- Make Your Car Unique with your unique set of initials. Better than custom license plate.

I am intersted for sure. Can't find the "Dodge" or "ES" anywhere, so I can finally get rid of the old peeling ones.
