Ive been on a lil kick of resin casting model car parts recently.. so doing a few here and there i started with emblems. easy but they are flat. now i'm in the stages of attempting more dimensional pieces.
so after a few days prepping and making the mold. i am now at casting.. again a learning curve for me. what yall think?

Not just yet. I'm still not satisfied with how they look. Want to get them a bit better. Then I may.

I gave a couple emblems to Jon moller at Carlisle. Wonder how they are holding up. He was my tester for UV fading and deteriorating.

Yes, Brian, please let us know when you will be ready to sell. The door pull covers I am mostly interested in, likely a set of 5 (I am currently missing one).

They look great! For the very last picture, of the “Thunderbird” emblem—how did you get the chrome effect on it, or were those the originals?

Wow real chrome paint? Nice! Yes, I’d like some of that too, if you don’t mind sharing one, or the company’s name and address.

In another post here about the TC’s fog lights I mentioned that the chrome on those reflectors was peeling off, and that I bought some Rust-oleum that was supposed to be chrome paint, but was only silver. I wonder if I could restore that chrome with one of those pens? It wouldn’t matter all that much if it was a smooth finish, you can’t see it through the outer lens anyway...but I bet it would reflect the light much better.
