    Custom Emblems!

    Emblems are made of 100% American made materials, 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum 3/8” thick. Emblems will have a black type3 hard anodize coating with a top brushed aluminum finish followed by a layer of protective sealer to protect the brushed aluminum surface. All emblems can be used in the front of an original Toyota with the use of a mid bracket (sold separately) or in the rear as a hitch cover with the use of a hitch bracket (sold separately). With a unique 9 hole pattern in the rear, emblems can be attached using #10-32 to an after market grille such as a satoshi grille, mesh grille or billet grille, heck they can even be a neat ornament on your wall!

    Model T
    Model T is made of 100% American made materials, 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum 3/8” thick. With a unique threaded hole pattern on the rear, Model T can be used in conjunction with other “soon to be available” hardware or if preferred it can be used as a stand-alone item. Model T will be a two-tone finish only; no other combinations will be available during this batch. Shot penning with black hard anodize will be the base of the finish, adding a layer of brite dip will enhance the shine in anodize and make the surface have a subtle sparkle effect. The top surface will have a brushed aluminum finish, followed by a layer of protective sealer applied by hand. For installation on OEM Toyota grilles, Mid Bracket is needed.

    Mid Bracket
    Mid bracket is a mounting hardware required for the installation of Model T emblem onto OEM Toyota grilles. This bracket is installed between the OEM grill and the Model T emblem. While designing the Model T emblem, I came to realize that by having a standard bracket mounted on the OEM Toyota grille would allot me not only to mount other types of emblems, but also facilitate the fabrication process, minimize material use and diversify the use of Model T and further upcoming emblems. Mid Bracket is not needed if using mesh/satoshi after market grilles. Every Mid Bracket will be shot penned and have black hard anodized and brushed aluminum on the logo. (Below are products not yet treated for finish)

    Installation:
    There's very little skills required for the installation of Devil Horns. I have made it as easy as I could for anyone to install this emblem using 10-32 screws and washers with minimal time. This would be the typical installation scenario:
    *Open the hood of your vehicle.
    *With your fingers, gently remove the emblem by pressing the tabs closer to each other (older models may require removing screws).
    *Locate Devil Horns / Mid Bracket onto factory or after market grill and finger-tighten provided screws and washers to the emblem.
    (If using Model T emblem, install emblem onto Mid Bracket first)
    *Snugly tighten all screws with a 5/32" Allen wrench also know as hex key.
    *Take your truck for a ride to display your newly installed emblem. = ]

    Hitch bracket:
    Hitch bracket is a simple 2-piece welded aluminum bracket shot penned and black anodized and will be available for class 3 or 4 type receivers (2.0" by 2.0").

    Installation requirements:
    *5/32" Allen wrench
    *5 minutes of your time (in most cases)

    It brings me joy reading about every one of you and receiving pictures of your cars/trucks. I will try my best to keep these emblems available, but I fear someday I will have stop making them. For the time being, I'm having my kicks making them for Toyota vehicles and I hope to keep making them for some time. It is my pleasure to bring you a unique item not sold or made anywhere else.

    Sincerely,

    Andres Diaz
    Fabricating Devil Horns since 2008
    andres@diazfabrication.com

    Rules:
    1) PRODUCT OFFERED TWICE A YEAR ONLY
    Devil Horns is fabricated three times a year usually in the months of March, July and November due to an agreement with Toyota’s legal department.
    No Devil Horns will be sold outside of these two time frames per year.

    2) LIST
    All year long I update a list of people interested in purchasing Devil Horns and notify them once the current batch is open. If you are interested in Devil Horns please send me a PM or email and I will gladly put you in that list.

    3) BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU SELL DEVIL HORNS!!!
    Copyright infringement is a serious offense and eBay is notorious for tracking illegal and unlawful content, copyright infringements, etc. Please don't sell this emblem on eBay; I may never get another change in making them again. If you have an emblem for sale I can help you find a buyer or you can safely post what you have for sale at the following site, a price and brief description is sufficient:

    I only have what's listed above, custom embelms take lots of time and I don't have the time to take that kind of work plus I have a full time day job.

    I will have another line of custom emblems near the end of this year where I will be able to laser engrave any logo quickly and innexpensively for the front and rear.

    Stock for now...
    I sent an email back this morning , interested to see if there is a way to use the hitch bracket with a set of Devil Horns .

    Also , on the Land Cruiser market -
    The original logo for Toyota was the TEQ Japanese lettering - it appears on many oem parts and any emblems are highly sought after for decorating Land Cruisers .

    TEQ.jpg

    An anodized aluminum version of this would be a great market and could be used on anything Toyota - look closely at many parts and that logo is engraved all over the place .

    Just a thought , who knows about the Legal Dept opinions ....

    Made some recent price adjustments to all custom emblems and reduced the price on all of them including the Model T.

    Andres, do you have pictures of the different finishes?

    Curious about how the devil horns look shot penned vs polished vs natural.
