So then are those 10 already spoken for?

I am anxiously awaiting the results...

I need 2, so there are 8 left. I would not necessarily say they are spoken for... I think the final price will dictate the actual interest. Fortunately being winter now though, there will be lots of time for another run if I run out

They arrived today

The edges are still a rough cast (to keep the cost down) but I have the tools to smooth them out. I think polishing is out though as the centers are fairly rough....unless one spends a lot of time. I need to drill the holes as well.

They look good as is though and I guess it depends on one's preference. The zinc alloy will never rust as is but I have a contact for powder coating and am going to get a quote on having them powder coated. They make a 'triple chrome' powder that may look good too...or plain silver.

I will get some quotes and look at the invoices for the casting and shipping costs before I post a price. I may have a run powder coated and leave another run bare metal in the event people want to do their own thing with them (polish,paint, powder, chromed, leave them as is, ect..). Left as is would be cheaper as well.

I am very happy with the way they turned out so I am sending out an email tomorrow to have another run done.

Hi Kurt,

They look great, people can get creative with colors and coatings as they wish.

I would love to be on the list for the next batch (looks as though these are all spoken for)

Some minor finishing to be done, but they turned out great.

Hi Kurt,
If you have any left from the 1st or second run of these, I would buy 2!

They look great!

Still Available?

I'd love to have a couple of these emblems. Do you still have any?
Or would it be possible to order more?
Thanks
