So the tips and badge came back from camcoats today.
Good guys to deal with and a nice finish on the products - very pleased.

Rear Turbo emblem is plastidip as the ones you can purchase are all 13cm long as far as I can tell...

What do you think? Probably not to everyone's taste but I like them..

Give these guys a call if you want anything similar and tell them I sent you! Smile

Love the tips and the rear turbo badge but not sure on the bonnet crest might look better if the pic wasn't so close . Thumb Thumb

The tips and Turbo badge look good, the bonnet badge looks proper kack. Throw it away.

I have been surfing for a gloss black turbo badge, I was lucky enough to get one and it was perfect, but its on my old deck lid, and I need one for the aero decklid.

Been looking everywhere, looks like I have to spray an OE one. If thats the case I might do it red Thumb

Wider shot...
I am debating putting some white paint into certain parts of the emblem - that was the original intention but I like it plain and I'll probably make a mess of it
Very Happy

I was contemplating white badge but black is much easier as no need to spray and the match isn't crucial to match perfectly with tail pipes or any other black accents.

Just those chrome washers to go at and seat back and I'm done.
Unless I can get an aero deck...

Looks like you bought it from DH Gate.

But if you like it, thats all that matters Thumb

Car is cleaned weekly but I'm keen to find out too!
Cost wasn't huge but not something you'd want to do regularly!

Love the theme, and as others said the tips look great.
Phil997 has a fantastic contact for bespoke bonnet crests.

I can't put a photo here (damn photobucket!). If youre on Facebook, search for "porschecrests.com". It's not a website.

They could make you a black and white one, which IMO would look nicer than sold black ?

Ive seen those. In USA I think
That was sort of my initial inspiration but then saw some ceramic Ines so decided I'd go that route and MAYBE paint myself.
There is a yellow and black one "on car" pic which is similar.
