    Would you like to do a set of GEN1 outter door panel cladding? I think that would look awesome to have the "Taurus SHO" light up like you have done on these.. What do you think?

    picture sucks, sorry for the quality but lighting the Taurus SHO on the door cladding. It is recessed and could be back filled like you have done on GEN4 badge...what do you think?

    Sounds great, I can send you a set to work on...I have seen your workmanship so I believe there is no threat of trashing a set. Just let me know when your done and we can square up on a price and send them back... how does that sound? no hurry

    This is something I've been thinking about for some time now. Except I was thinking about using a 3D printer to print the S, H and O with clear acrylic filament. I've also thought about using addressable LED's and a Raspberry Pi to create say a LED trace of S, H and O on startup and maybe turning all red on WOT, in addition to white as DRL's and switchback amber/white on turns. I know I'm weird :)

    I'm going to tackle this. What is the acrylic? What kind? Is it epoxy? Can I grab my wife's nail polish?

    I got this off of a company I used to work for they used to make soft playgrounds and use this to glue a little Pebbles together. You can also cover the top of a wooden table for a clear and glossy glass finish

    Is it a secret? Can you point me in the right direction or is it just plain acrylic whatever?

    Fender badges are finished just waiting for the lighting system to come in.
    Had these light up Ford badges come in today not too bad only took over a month to get here. Got one for the front grill (white) and one for the rear trunk (red) but I don't think I'm going to use the red one.
