My bonnet bumper badge has disintergrated. Wow what a surprise :shake:

I was wondering about experimenting with printing out different colour schemes on waterproof photopaper, sticking it over the old badge and then lots of lacquer.

Ya think it would work? If so lets have some designs posted up. I'll stick up a rogues gallery on my webspace if their any good?

If someone could make some decent 70mm badges in alloy or similar perhaps, they could sell hundreds on this board alone!!...

Wonder if it would be worth us all asking a company to make some for us?, ie enough of us ordering to make it worth their while!!...

good idea, we need a good design, not to dissimilar from the sv alloy one

or how about an engraver

The SV style one would be my first choice as well......... there was someone selling similar over on XPF, but not 70mm ones....... did ask them for details but `no answer` came their reply!!

Hows about plain silver being an option if they're going to be similar to the SV X-Power jobbies?

(Because then I'll hand paint the bits that are usually green with my spare Trophy Yellow paint! Want some Pete? ;) )
