Fun Little Emblem Project

I was installing a deadbolt and wanted to made a cover plate for around the opening. I had built a little CNC machine a few years back so I drew this up and cut it last night. The paint is a little wet yet but I think it might look pretty cool right next to the original nameplates. This was actually the test piece but it turned out pretty good so I just went with it. It was a piece of anodized aluminum so I had to remove the anodizing with oven cleaner. It took a shine but I think I might rough it up a bit to match the original logos I cleaned up and re-painted.

Thanks all!! I did another with a little adjustment in positioning and then a brushed finish vs the polished look. I'm not sure what will end up on my trailer. I I have to wait for things to thaw around here until I can work on mounting this up.

As for custom requests... You never know! Send me what you are thinking!

Glad to see another ND Airstream owner. Love the cover plate.

Thanks Sandy and also thanks for the welcome! It would be fun to stop and see your projects sometime. The weather was good yesterday so I was able to get a lot done on the trailer. Including finishing the deadbolt installation and putting everything back together. Click image for larger version
