Hi All,
Well, I took matters into my own hands. I am relatively certain I have found a manufacturer who can make metal vehicle emblems - exact replicas of whatever we need. Would someone with a detached (but probably broken) Bambi emblem be willing to do a very precise tracing of the outline of the letters and then also record detailed measurements of the letters? I need this template to send to the company in order to get an estimate.

Thanks!
Bess

Bess-

Mine is off for trailer polishing. It is not broken. I will do a tracing and measurements. Please PM me your address so I can send it to you. Mine only says BAMBI- no II.

I am betting this will be EXPENSIVE!! I will still investigate the laser cutting option.

Ben

Very cool offer, but mine does not have the "II." I guess with the second one off the line, they were just using up the "Bambi" scripts. I have never been able to determine when the "II" was added...

I have a '64 Bambi II. It is half way through restoration. I have the "II", but the BAMBI is missing. That's the most iconic piece of the trailer! ��
Any info you can provide would be wonderful!
Thanks!
