Custom Cast and Powder Coated Trunk Badges!

After a long time spent on this project Ive finally come up with something Im proud to offer. Ill include a link to the original thread I created for this a few months back and youll be able to see where this started and how this got here today.


These are 100% handmade and each one is quite simply its own small piece of art.



After casting, filing. and sandblasting these were powder coated. I am offering 2 different finishes on this first run and will offer more once I learn what exactly people are looking for.

The 2 finishes I have here today are Chrome


and black chrome


This was my first time powder coating so some of the pieces pictured are not perfect. I will be redoing some of these to ensure the piece you get is as perfect as possible. If its not something I would put on my own car it will not ship.

What pieces do I have? I have a handful of turbo badges and 332 badges. I did an assortment of "I" "is" "e" and "es". I have a ton of these in raw form and will be working on getting some more finished but I figured I would get these up and find out what people are looking for and how many of each I need to do. Some of these are already ready to ship but depending on what is ordered it may take a few days to finish the next batch and ship them out.

prices

turbo- $40/1 or $60/2

332- $35/1 or $55/2

i,e,is,es- $5/each

http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=339526

I will encourage you to check out the original link above that started this process so you can see how far its come and can appreciate the amount of time and effort that went into these. I have even more exciting things that will be coming out soon and if there are any requests/questions/comments/suggestions I am very open minded and want to hear them. This is hardly a "money making operation" for me. I am simply an enthusiast trying to bring people things they want and need. This entire project started because I was unable to find something I wanted. So i made it. Now its available to you. Thanks for reading.

Very cool. I love that this is true American craftsmanship. The real deal, hand made.

I was actually going to advertise that these are 100% made in the USA but I didn't know if that would hinder peoples thoughts on them as most members seek out authentic german parts lol

Heres a photo comparing these to stock badges. The top 2 were taken off cars and are genuine BMW badges. The bottom 2 are mine.

Thanks for the positive feedback!!!

327 will be the next one available probably. I already have the 7's cast and just need to make a pattern for them. Then its on might take a week or 2 to get ready.

I second this. I would purchase a "327" and a "335" and two "iS" if they become available.
Paypal ready.
