What would you put on it? Or would you just stretch it a bit :gmc:


Just 200mm of blank space in-between ... :mrgreen:

Well I had a play with the Mustang and this is what I got.

I tried cutting the key bar into it for a trial but I'm not that impressed. It hasn't been finished in anyway so machine marks are still visible, but even so the actual item feels a bit naff. I will try some nylon next when funds permit. This was A.B.S but this sheet was pants. Didn't seem a nice finish anyway to start with!

Some more for your sins...

Solid carbon fibre! Not finished yet as this was straight off the machine! Over 10 times the cost of walnut, but I really like it, the depth is amazing! Hoping it polishes to glossy shine! It's 4mm thick, 50mm wide :)

Looking very good Mr Monk! The one that you describe as 'naff' looks brilliant in the photo - I think you are on to a winner with these. :thumbsup:

Perhaps the MG owners would like a carbon fibre key to reduce weight and maximise the 0-60 time? :lol:

That looks great David. Maybe you could do a Community grill badge in Carbon Fibre :thumbsup:

These look fantastic! I'd love a facelift Rover badge in carbon fibre to replace my horrible sticker lol! :)

I didn't do the facelift, mainly as I thought everyone would want the original or the 75 edition. I can do a facelift though! I'll add it to my list. Carbon fibre is at a horrendous cost though. You'd be looking at a ball park figure of around £30 I'm afraid.

An OE facelift badge is £27 on Xpart so I'd happily pay £30 for a carbon one! :)

Aluminium looks good too though! You could fill the pits with coloured resin, that'd look great!

I had a look at the coloured resins, you can get the colours by RAL code so plenty of colour combinations. I may have a go if I get time. Currently looking at polishing machines/wheels and techniques.

Ben asked for a 30mm aluminium MG badge and I finally got it cut. Absolute nightmare with it being so small. The tools marks are also emphasised because of the size so Ben you're going to have a lot of work to do! Came out at 29.2mm which I think is due to blade wear.

David, it looks fine to me. Didn't mean to be trouble, just comes naturally. :whump: Plus, I know you like a challenge. :lol:
