    Emblem Tip

    I have seen these Front Nose emblems on the Internet from $85 to $110.So what I did was buy a key chain for about $9.00 (discount if you buy 5) Then I used a bench grinder to grind the tab off.

    Good idea......

    is the emblem on the left a hood emblem or the modified key chain? If it is the modified key chain, do you have a real emblem for comparisson?

    Although this is a great idea, I think that the actual real emblems are of much higher quality, thus the rediculous cost of them. Good pointer, though.

    The one on the left is a key chain with the tab ground off.Dip in water to keep cool while grinding (Attach with 3-M Tape avalable at Home Depo or use 100% rubber cement.)My scanner is kind of cheep so the Immage is slightly out of focus (The quality is very good and the lettering is much sharper).There are Maney U.S. and candian products made in forein countrys and Imported in the u.S. and Canada then resold.Quality is a state of mind just because you may buy a product in the U.S.A. doesn't mean it was made here.I baught a Kenwood sterio once, worst pice of junk I ever baught I gave it away for free .

    Re:Emblem Tip

    How about a 328 Emblem on a coffee Cup holder for my desk.

    Easy to make, A coffee cup, wood plack, piece of leather and a Ferrari Emblem.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
