lowcost Badges

Hi, Does anyone know of anyone making Lowcost Badges out there?
I know someone made some great ones years ago but wondered if there is still anything still available?
Cheers

i bought the ones years ago - still not finished the car. I know off someone on the caterham forum makes old caterham badges / stripes. He's recently done gear knobs and other bits. I'm sure he could look to make something.

if you're interested i'll try and get his details.

MikeR's suggestion seems a pretty good one.

Alternatively I reckon most waterjet cutting companies would cut the for you out of stainless steel sheet. You'd have to supply them a dimensioned CAD drawing to work from in DWG format though. There's people on here who could probably do the CAD drawing part bit for you if you gave them the dimensions you wanted.

Do you mean large stuff like the 7 grille, or small stuff using the 7 or Locost logo, or LCB logo, if it's the latter I'm sure it could be 3D printed depending on what sort of finish is required, you could talk to Oli at Furore Products he does 3D print stuff

Link scroll to bottom of page for automotive bits





Furore Formula Car - the only two seater modern Formula Car lookalike. I no longer run Furore Products or Furore Cars Ltd, but would still highly recommend them for Acewell dashes, projector headlights, dominator headlights, indicators, mirrors etc, best prices in the UK! Take a look at http://www.furoreproducts.co.uk/ or find more parts on Ebay, user names furoreltd & furoreproducts, discounts available for LCB users.
Don't forget Stainless Steel Braided brake hoses, made to your exact requirements in any of around 16 colours. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/furoreproducts/m.html?_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1

NB with people talking about CNC, the person in thinking about does resin filled badges normally, like the round badge on the front of a caterham

Gaz 1977 / flagmodelmaking / Salon Motorsport is my son.

I'm assembling (welding) a batch of 20 supercharges for him ATM so will see him in the next few days.

I'll ask if he has any left on the shelf, covered in a protective layer of dust.
