Emblem Idea
 
I have an idea for an emblem and I'm trying to find out if a sign company can cut a vinyl stencil that will allow the word "DESIGN" to show the vehicle color through it. My signature is what I am trying to accomplish by using a combination of the SRT chrome emblem and the vinyl below. I know there is already an SRT Design emblem make but I want to be creative and create my own custom version of it.

My other thought was that I could apply the stencil, paint it red, and then remove the "DESIGN" letters to reveal the silver vehicle color. This option would probably hold up better to the elements.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

While he was at it I had him make stencils for me for an idea I have for the exhaust tips and wheels. First I'll try painting the exhaust tips using the VHT Flameproof paint in flat gray to give it the look similar to how Corsa etches their logo into to the tip. I figure if it doesn't turn out right I'll strip the paint and look into having a local company laser etch the logo into it. Ha. For some reason my hand makes the 4" tip look like a 2" tip. Weird angle I guess.

Here's a Photoshop'ed idea of the look I'm going for.

For the wheels I'm waiting to hear back from a local company that can laser etch the logo onto the wheel spoke so it looks like it was made that way from the factory. I'll let you know what I find out for those that are interested in having some fun with laser etching.

nate does great work.

for the stencil, we used to etch logo's into a ign cover on harleys.
we used a similar stencil and a airbrush we opened up to make a mini sandblaster.

Great idea! What media did you use that was fine enough to pass through the airbrush?
