Land Yacht Emblem Damaged!

Yikes! The scripted Land Yacht emblem on the back of our 68 Safari got damaged during polishing. Anyone have any leads on where we might look for a replacement?

thank you for the tip!

I checked and they didn't have the one I'm looking for.
It looks like this:

Too bad!

I've always like those big Land Yacht scripts on the back.

If you can get the rest of it off you might try ALUMNALOY ... Google it ... There are demo vids on YouTube

Thanks. Not sure I trust my artistic skills for matching the script, but if I were to try it does anyone know how the letters are attached to the Aluminum backing?

There are pins attached to the script that go through the skin & have a "nut" sort of thing on the other side that holds it on. The newer units hold them on with a rivet. I'm not sure how you get this one off without removing the interior skin to get at it.....

Do you have the missing piece? You could use 3m tape (they have tape for car emblems) to reattach.

Good info thank you

Nice to know how the emblem is attached. Sadly the missing piece was not saved by the polisher who was probably hoping I wouldnt notice...argh.

First world problem in the grand scheme of things, but still a shame.
