My car has the [optional] wing flasher repeater lights. The things must have cost three cents to make and postage cost more than the actual item. But I do need to say that the little suckers have saved me from getting clipped while making a turn on more than a few occasions. You know what happens. On a one lane in each direction street some jerk pulls up, squeezing between you and the curb. You begin to make a right turn and he tries to go at the same time. At least with the marker light flashing, he may stop.

They are apparently so busy, not interested. I already have the side badge and the arrowheads, would be in for an additional set of each, if someone can persuade BT to make them for a group buy.

Not that I can promise anything BUT my family business put in a new CNC for them recently and the owner invited my old man for lunch. Maybe I can get it done... I know they are SUPER busy with the Mopar stuff.

I emailed them a week or so ago and they stated that “we currently do not have any fender badging or anything of sort as we used to do a few back in the day but no longer the case anymore.”

So, hopefully you all can change their mind and sway them to pick that up again.

that would indeed be wild, if that lunch turns out. please note, my request was to buy the entire batch, so they literally had zero risk, only profit, and it was items they had already done, already in their computer somewhere! they still were either too busy or not inclined to do it.

I really look forward to hearing how it goes, as well as to seeing pics of what Emblem Pros does. I love my jamesbiz fender badges though, titanium mixed with brushed, they are a subtle work of art. but the items EP has done for me are also beautiful.

What would you guys want IF I can get it done? I'm thinking they might not want to get crazy with too many options if it is something they would be willing to do. I also think arrowheads with black centers and side emblems with 6.0 would probably be the most popular. I wouldn't mind laying out the money but it I assume it would be a limited one time run so I would want the most popular combo made.

Like I said I know they are really busy with mopar stuff and people are waiting months for their mopar stuff from them..

I agree with your assessment of what would be most wanted. and that is what I would like, another set of arrowheads (regular aluminum, not polished, i believe this was called cleared aluminum, not sure, with black centers). I would like another set of the fender badges as I have them, brushed with backdrop titanium, would like them to say 7.0 rather than 6.0, in anticipation of future plans.

New emblems arrived from EmblemPros. Must say I'm pleasantly surprised. I also have the plastic repros from GTOG8TA (which I recently pulled off the car after a little over a year), and a set of the mirrored third shift studio emblems.

The EmblemPro set look rather good, quality seems great. I chose their brushed (instead of mirrored). They're not perfect by any means. But I'm happy.
