Default New custom emblem/badge source....

Found a guy on IG making some good looking emblems and badges, apparently a few corvette guys who know him and liked his work and put the pressure on to make some crossed flags emblems.....I saw the final product and was pretty impressed! Sent a DM and now I’ve got two coming! Since he’s new to “Corvette stuff” the price is great and the tax hasn’t been added.....yet lol just figured I throw it up for anyone who has IG and wants to take a look, I’ll post mine when I get them in person. The top pic is what got me interested the middle pic is what I’m having him do, bottom pic was an idea to add a little more red for mine. My car is black everywhere so I though a touch more red was needed.


Original design that I noticed.

A potential when I asked for a little more red.

What I bought.

His work looks good on IG, excited to see the quality in person. The price is amazing not sure how long that will last though. I know I have custom hydrocarbon ZO6 badges and they look pretty good my only issue was at $150 for the pair it took 60 days to get them and I asked for the 505 HP to remain black.....since that’s a serious understated lie for my car lol, but they showed up and were red just like the Z. Didn’t feel like another two months for correction so I kept them. I paid for these new flags last night so we’ll see what the turn around time is...he said 5-10 business and that’s cool. I actually tried to pay him a little extra because the price was so damn good, didn’t work because he had already send me the PayPal invoice.

Nice. Looking forward to some pics once you receive them. I wouldn't mind ditching my chrome emblems for something custom like this.

I’ll keep you posted man! My car is coming out of the shop this week, dyno is waiting on a part so we won’t do the fine tuning till next week but we’ve got the pump 93/meth tune good to go, and we’re gonna do E50 only since the dyno is pretty much rollers only. Next week it’ll get dialed in on E70 and E85R and we’ll see what she wants to rev up to....I’ve had this 6700 limiter on the entire time....ready let her eat past 7k😃

I don’t but I can find out, I’d assume same thickness as the OE version. Probably wouldn’t be hard for this guy to make a thinner version though. When I get mine in hand I can give better answers for you.

Oh I know brother! I did picture this in my head though...

***CSM rolls up to the front of “O club” in newly acquired ZR1....hops out pops trunk grabs golf clubs***

Butter bar comes out to tell CSM he can’t park his car at the entrance of the O club....before the JO gets a word out Matt tosses keys.... tells JO keep it up front and no joy riding or it’s your *** junior!!! Strolls into to O club drops clubs on the fancy Italian marble floor and announces “I HAVE ARRIVED BITCHS” now where’s this fancy cake I’ve heard so much about? 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Now that would be priceless lol....just messing around as well, while you are the very top of senior enlisted I know you still “work for a living” 🤣

From the maker himself, I also asked about doing a thinner version upon request I’ll keep you posted on the answer.

“The plastic is 0.125”, ends up being around 0.175” with the mounting tape, very close to the OEM pieces”

You can look up his Instgram user name and see all his stuff, you shouldn’t need an account to just view his page. His account name is in the top picture on this thread.

Understandable lol, I didn’t look to much into the name being a potential issue....technically my IG account is owned and operated by a clown French Bulldog 🤣 who can be easily bought off by treats...pets...or playing....in that order.

That's awesome.... lmao...

Firstly, I try to stay away of the "O" clubs... Often times my BC, the BDE Commander, or perhaps the 1 star will invite me.

Golf clubs are a must!!!

you forgot 03's and 04's... Most of them stand at Parade Rest when I walk up or when they address me... lol

01's, 02's won't even look in my direction....

It would be a funny sight though...

When I was a BN CO, my Lts didn’t know how to react to the boss driving a boosted Z. Let’s just say, I was an anomaly. Oh, and I hate golf. Lol

Sir...you are a well appreciated exception to the rule lol obviously or hopefully obviously no disrespect to you with my e-dog jokes or jabs about O’s....I’m sure you’ve heard it all before too....maybe a little less since you’re just a tad higher than most O’s make it....even full of themselves pre-madonna socom guys tend to stop messing around at your level...

No offense taken at all. I offend many more people than those that offend me. Lol

Still waiting for your dyno results. My Z begins the cross country journey tomorrow.
