My custom Vw mk1 grill badge

VWVortex.com - Golf I/Jetta I Parts - forums.vwvortex.com
Ive had this idea for 10 years i think - finally made it come true.

Made at local awards business - that has a water jet table..

At fist i was going to make it small and fit inside the original diameter of the original vw grill badge. Then i realized it would be too small - so i had them made a round aluminum plate that fit inside the original stock VW emblem location -

Then we made the emblem - it was bigger - but i had them make it small so i was able to use my external hood latch.

I am very happy with it - i ended up painting the back mount plate black - cant decide if i just want to clear the emblem or paint is silver... im rolling with it now.

With this type of mounting plate - i could make any type of badge or what ever to mount to the grill - fits like a glove - we had a local show this weekend and everyone loved it.

thought i would share my idea and how i made it happen...

I might make another emblem and have it a little thinner for the outline of the VW then might paint it up different or something..
