Default Who's Crafty?

Does anyone thing that they have the artistic talent to pull these off? If someone were to produce MyXthGen emblems to put in place of the Nissan Burgers, I would definitilly replace them. I'm sure a number of other members would as well.

@EddyMaxx since I think he would have to "sign off" on the use of the logo.

Re-badging. I haven't debadged just because it throws off my chrome to black ratio. I just want an alternative badge

Making the mould and casting the piece isn't an incredibly difficult process. Depending on the complexity of the custom part itself, there are multiple ways to create a blank. The difficult part would seem to be finishing it with a true chrome, if that's the look you'd go for. Painting in any other color would be relatively simple.

I wouldn't use this for badging, but it would be kind of cool to have it on a mesh grill.

Default Re: Who's Crafty?

A badge with the "X"Gen logo certainly could be manufactured.

Easily done by using an original emblem and copying the exact measurements to the precise millimeter. Then a wax carving can be fabricated (just like jewelry). This process would not be cheap, then a mold is made and it can be cast in any metal you desire( including gold or platinum).

China would be the best route to go. Keep in mind you would most likely be locked into a minimum order to begin manufacturing (probably 100 pieces ).

Of course Eddy Maxx and Mr. Deadbolt would need to give permission to use the logo if indeed it is trademarked.

I like the idea, but I probably wouldn't put in on the rear of my car. Like Eddy said, I would do my engine bay cover.

I'm not crafty, but I'd be in for a rebadge. Personally, I'd like to see one of the vintage nissan done.
