Its a friend of mine that lives up around Sonora. He did this as a one off for me. Not sure if he would do this in quantities but I can ask. He paints many different things including cars, motorcycles, helmuts and even HO scale slotcars. The photo below is of 4 cars he painted for an IROC style race on the track to the right. He is an artist.

He used 1-Shot lettering enamel.  I have asked him for details on the paint colors and process of cleaning and prepping them prior to hand painting them.  I have also asked him if he would do some for others.  The one thing I will say is that if he does them, turnaround on his work does take some time.  Let me see what he says.  Here are a few more pics. 


As they were when they came off:

I have been tempted to get one of those gravity fed paint pens, and after reading up on remanufacturing emblems, it is quite tempting to try something like this out. I am interested to know the type of paint he used and the process he went through.


I'll definitely be casting a replacement setup to try out a few different ideas.

Very nice, I repainted mine a few years ago with Testors paints, holding up quite well.

New to the world of powder coating but would that be a possibility?

Maybe. You'd have to apply high-temp masking tape to prep for color 1., let's call it white, apply the white powdercoating, fire the white powdercoating, re-apply high-temp masking tape to prep for color 2., blue, apply the blue powdercoating, and fire the blue powdercoating. I suspect it would take more care and time than I could ask of my (normally very congenial) powdercoater! But if you were doing it yourself, or had an exceptionally patient powdercoater, it might work.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
