Default Ferrari Style Tribute Badge

Hi all,

A company I previously purchased from make bespoke billet aluminium badges.
I had a one off badge made a while back and the quality was superb.
So if any of you would like any type of billet badge made I can highly recommend their service although they are from the US so it does take a while.
They can do larger quantities so if there is a decent take up there could be a group discount available!

The image below is a photoshopped mock-up of what a tribute badge might look like in the Ferrari style should you wish to keep away from Ferrari badges.

Checkout their website, like $6 per square inch minimum 20sq.
But there's a set up charge and charges for polishing so it wont be cheap as a one off.
Thought a group but might make it much cheaper.

I Say Ding Don did the Superlegera stickers for the sides of mine. They appeared to be metal with a sticky packing. Very thin though. I will try and get a picture later
