Rear Lid Badge

So I just got back from travelling on business and now can get back to doing things I like doing on the side. I had an e-mail from a guy asking me if I could make the 348ts badge out of aluminum. Seeing how I own a machine shop I though I would give it a try. Well 4 hrs later bang we have an aluminum 348ts badge. Here is a picture of it right off the machine untouched. Now the question is his car is black so now he is not sure if he wants just the center line of the letters painted back and polish the aluminum to look chrome. Or paint the flat area black the center area white and leave the outer edge looking aluminum. Well I told him we can try both because it is aluminum we can paint it and if we don't like it we can dip it in paint stripper and try again. Will keep you posted.

here is a quick look at what it will look like with the black. He seems to like this alot and thinks I should finish it like this. I will touch up the black to be perfect, polish the edges, clear coat, cut the back side tape to match and place it on the car.

we have a new project. I was just asked to see if I can turn this dash plaque on the series speciale and make it into a rear lid badge.
I'm on it. This will be cool. Will post pics as I complete.
