I have hated logos cut into stuff from the first time I saw it and that has affected a few of my purchases. I'm almost certain I'm not the only one that feels this way.
Thank You!

I feel the same way. Our BMW turbo manifolds have our logo cast onto them but done in a way it can be ground off in a few minutes if the customer doesn't want it.

The "SAVVY" sticker that came with my skid was promptly placed on a white sheet of paper, photographed and loaded into my V-Carve Pro software to be machined in 3D. I thought you and Gerald might like some big 'Texas' style belt buckles

Thanks for showing the pictures of the product on your mall crawler. I have to say, those are the nicest looking after market LED lights that have seen yet! They have a very clean, well-designed OEM look to them. Especially, when a lot of after-market products often look kind of kluged on after the fact.
I can't wait to see your street version of them. I take back what I wrote earlier about the price. I'm sure I well end up with a set of these eventually.
They are still screaming out to be black, however. But if the billet housing is separate which it looks like it is, I'll just rattle-can them like suggested earlier in this thread. I hope you post a thread when the street version is done and available. You will sell many.

That looks good, really good, but won't it loose a bit in translation on the sharp corners?

Do I spy rubber seals around the lights on the black Jeep that are not on the first Jeep pic? Is that an afterthought? DIY seals? Or will they be included in the kit?

At first I was thinking I would want them black, but seeing them with the gas tank skid looks good.

The way it's drawn shows the path of the end mill with the piece clamped down. If you lasered it, you'd have to cut it out and then re-attach the letters to a backer or leave connectors which would ruin the look.

No seal, just the reflection in the shiny paint of the bezel.

Black is definately in the picture now. Whether it is powdercoat, teflon, or some other material that will look good in the future and take some abuse. We'll get it to you.

It is just a very tight fit. The OEM holes get pulled out from the OEM housing. I just tapped them with a rubber malletso they slightly inward and the fit is perfect!

no, we have laser machines that only go a couple tenths at a time, so woth multiple passes you "burn" as deep as you want, ill try to take a picture of a part Monday to show you if you like. We do it for recycle logo's in our molds, and customer logo's. Look at the bottom of a pepsi bottle, although it loses sharpness when the plastic gets blow into the lasered area, you'll get the idea.

So you're doing the same as a sinker wire EDM with a laser? And what's that worth in burn time?

I can keep the 'corners' to 0.001" radius if using a 15* 'V' bit with 0.002" flat tip but I've been using 0.020" or 0.030" tip until I get a high speed spindle.

V-Carve will bring the tip of the cutting tool up the corner to 'square' it giving the appearance of a chiseled corner.

A prototype trail marker in bronze using a 0.030" tip 30* 'v' bit. The '1997' is 0.750" tall.
