@freebird: Yep I'm definitely aware of the slight bend in it down the center so it conforms to the header panel and guess what? Each one of these suckers will be hand formed and test fitted by me so fear not, they will fit like a gosh dang glove! And about the adhesive, I was actually contemplating about that. What do you guys want? Would you prefer to have the choice of what to stick it to your car with or would you prefer the convenience of getting what I deem appropriate along with it? Let me know : )
\

I would prefer a way to drill small holes and fasten it on.
But that would take a lot more work on your part.
So some double sided tape would work just fine i'm sure.....I have had good luck in the past with emblems.

I got one of the prototypes done last night. This one is with 80% fill. Its been primered, sanded, and then painted. I stuck it to the car with some admittedly thick double sided foam 3M tape. This stuff definitely would not be the best tape to use as it raises the emblem up far to high, atleast for my liking anyway.

I would guess that in about another week or so I'll be all set to open up an new thread that will have all the final information so you guys can start getting ahold of some of these. I'm still just making sure I have everything all figured out and settled.

@joshtrup: Sorry man, I don't plan on taking it past making the Mitsubishi emblem.

Just a small update for everyone, I have two more emblems printed and all I need to do now is finalize a consistant and accurate way to form these emblems to the header panel. Once I do that I'll make these available to you guys.

Yea, I understand this is taking some time. I've just been busy with my car so this little project of mine has suffered time wise. After this weekend I should have some time to get these squared away so i can offer them up to you guys. Sorry for the wait.

I know I've been a bit silent on this for a bit. That will be changing this week. I think what I'll do is offer these up to you guys unpainted only first. I really don't feel like they would be hard for anyone to paint themselves and it will save you guys some money and me some time (which I sorely need). I'll do a quick break down of how I painted mine so you guys know what I used and go off that.

So look for a new thread where I actually sell these to you in the coming days.

If you are printing in ABS, you can save a lot of time sanding by dipping a rag in acetone, sticking it in the corner of a small tupperware bin and putting the printed part on the other side of the bin.

It will melt the layer lines a bit and give a smooth finish.  But if you leave it in the container with acetone vapor too long it will turn to mush.
