    Custom badge???

    Ok,

    Im thinking about replacing the rear badge on my car with a kickin griffin badge. However Im still not 100% on the idea. Id really like to produce a custom badge. I have the time, patience and materials to create it out of plastic from scratch. However I have not yet found a design I liked.

    Id like to hear any of your ideas, any designs you can come up with. Only problem is if its too detailed id have to get a mould made, and inject plastic into it, however I dont currently have the tools or materials to do that. I know a man who can, but it would be a lot of effort and cost for one badge.

    You know if enough people wanted a chrome badge the same as the AS logo, we could get them custom made? But with everything custom, unless a lot of people want them it would be expensive. Id not be able to make an AS badge by hand, its too difficult.

    I wouldn't mind a badge like that, not to replace my griffin one though, just to put somewhere else on the car.

    Actually I could make an AS badge as a one off. Id only need a Griffin badge, take out the middle, Create the AS letters and paint. Hmmmm interesting.

    Although Im not totally taken on the idea yet.

    Any other ideas?
