    GROUP BUY IS UP! CHECK IT OUT!

    I know a guy that can custom build Grill Emblems to read something other than the Toyota "T". I'm getting one made that will be my initials but still somewhat resemble the "T". I just want to get an idea as to how many other people would like something like this done if he can give a group discount. I am pretty good at coming up with these designs so just post your initials or other 2-3 letter combination and I'll make them into an emblem like mine.

    Here is how mine came out.

    This is the drawing used

    My initials are CDE. The E is on the outside.

    If there is enough interest we can get a group buy going and get these shipped out.

    How did you like your emblem? I can redo it if you want, maybe just TW?

    He is making mine for $45 but that price will go down, especially if I get one of my friends to digitize my drawings, not to mention the discount he'll give. I could see it being around $25-30 shipped.

    My emblem will be the test run. He is going to make it out of a couple different materials so we can figure out which one is best and try to streamline the process.

    They will probably have to be glued on. A simple plastic adhesive from Home Depot will do the trick. I'll draw up JWP and have it posted tonight.

    OG

    This one would have to be two pieces that you just align when you glue it on.
